  • When you say 'lighter day' just wondering whether you mean to use lighter weights and back off the intensity (ie, stopping well short of failure) or use lighter weights with equal intensity as the heavy days.

      if i'm doing 3x/week then one day is heavy, one day is light shy of failure, and one day is light but closer to failure

        • Layne, the date is June 9th. It is a pro/am show.

          When powerlifters lift 2-3 times a week, don't they only do 1 or 2 sets with 1,2 or 3 reps at a workout? It's almost like an entire workout spread out over a week.

          I'm not sure I see the point of a 'lighter' day. Can you explain the reasoning?

          • not really, powerlifters often use a lot of volume. I routinely know powerlifters who will do well over 10 sets on a given exercise

            • Can we have some discussion on the 'lighter day' workout? I hear people talk about it. I'm not sure I agree with it. Just looking for some talk about it.

              Layne, let me know if you can make it down the 9th of June. I finally think Chris is eating enough. He should be a lot bigger this time than when you competed against him.

              • just because a workout is 'lighter' does not mean you are not stimulating muscle tissue and additionally it also facilitates blood flow to that area. I can tell you right now it certainly enhances recovery by taking advantage of the repeated bout effect

                • so would you suggest maybe doing 3-5 light sets the day after training a muscle to get a little pump and blood flow? do you do this?

                    i do one heavy workout per week focussing on 3-8 reps going as heavy as I can on compound movements, still pretty high volume, then later in the week I go lighter for 10-20 reps with more volume but not as much failure as I do earlier in the week.

                    My legs NEVER grew off one time per week shit. I started training 2x/week and everyone said I would overtrain; low and behold my legs actually grew, the science supports it as do my experiences with myself & my clients

                      • Sorry Layne one more: bodyfat setpoint. Can it change in a good way or getting worse with age? Thanks

                        • There is very little anecdotal and no scientific evidence to suggest that you can lower it, but you can certainly make it higher if you let your bodyfat get too high (only if you go significantly over your normal bodyfat).

                            unless you have an allergy to eggs there is no reason to cut them out. sweeteners are probably fine, i'd cut cola out just a few days beforehand as the carbonation can make your stomach fill up slightly and i'd cut dairy out a few days before just to be safe in case you have a slight allergy

                            • As some of you may know I've been helping Scivation design a fatburner over the last year and I'm really excited about it. It just came out after a full year of research & development. Check it out and check out the write up... I even get a shout out :showoff: http://www.dialene4.com/
