    • Layne,
      Thanks bro for the link to your article! I was good to get some information that can pertain to natural bb. People try to give advice all the time on different stratagies on how to diet for a show and it can sometimes throw a question mark in ones plan. Looking on daves thread, he talks about the keto diet all day long but I feel that this diet is not meant for people like ourselves.
      I do have a B.S in exercise science and nutriton so I do understand the science of the diet but when it starts getting closer to show time you look for things to help give you an edge.
      Reading that article helped me feel more confident in what I was doing and I will continue to do that. Hopefully I will be the next musclemania fitness atlantic pro on april 28th.

      Thanks again!!

      • Layne,
        Another question. After I am done cutting I will concentrate on increasing my strenght for 3 months. I will do mostly compound movements. I think I am going to follow the advanced program. Here is the link http://www.t-nation.com/findArticle....icle=263train2
        If you find the time, I would like to know your opinion about the program. I will stay with the program untill my strenght gaines will stall. Then I will decrease the weight on the excersises a bit and add some other excersises into the program. To add volume and I try to do increase the weight on the main excersises again week after week, so in the end I have the same weight on the bar as when I did with the advanced program (with the less excersises) but with more volume. I think this will get my strenght up and after that with the more volume will increase hypertrophy. What do you think?

              • the more frequent you workout the less you get sore. The best powerlifters squat FREQUENTLY... even up to 4x/week

                • I have read that the first 4 weeks or so your body has to adjust to the more frequent squatting. A lot of people will get more sore and/or can't squat as heavy as they used to. A lot will stop with more frequent squatting because they feel they are getting weaker. But when your body gets more and more adjusted you will become stronger and stronger. And you can make improvements.

                  Your body can handle a lot more then a lot of people think.

                    • yeah but how the hell can you squat with weight when it hurts to even sit on the toilet?

                          • even if squatting 2-3x week with 1-2 heavy days is superior? And there is much evidence to support that having at least one lighter day is superior for strength and size than just straight up one workout per week

                              Is that light with or without high intensity?
