    layne recommends cycling it...

    layne just stopping by hope all is well with your recovery. we know you will tear it up when you get back to it.

    btw, any word on the release date of the dvd?

    • Hi Layne, I found this thread through the .doc file compilation of your answers to the questions here.

      I was wondering if you still believe that 1 gram / lb of bodyweight is enough protein for optimal strength and size gain?

      I have always thought it was, but recently I signed up on Iron Addicts, and the guy who runs the forum says 1.5 g / lb. is the absolutely minimum one should be eating.

      So, I'm confused as hell. I know what the science says but that guy says he trains thousands of people.

      I also thought that you were eating more protein than just 1 g/ lb.

      Thanks for any insight you can give me.

      All the best,
      Barry

        I'll grab this since Layne's typing right now is 'not so fast' (done in my best Borat voice).
        This one is on carbs (good to accompany the protein one)

        • Have a safe recovery Layne. I'm surprised how well you're dealing with this setback emotionally.. you have soooo much dedication. I'd be bummed out in your shoes and probably let other hobbies override bodybuidling. Keep strong man!

            Hi Barry,

            If all he can say is "this is the requirement" and he cannot back that up with a reasonable argument... there is a reason for that.

            I do think going up to 1.5g/lb is useful for certain people but to say it's a 'minimum' is simply untrue

                I was thinking you're going to have a challenge not contracting your pecs when you work legs. I'm pretty sure when I squat, I basically flex the shit out of everything. Let us know how it goes. [Hope that doesn't sound negative; I'm not trying to be--I guess it will just take a bit of readjustment]

                • no i understand where you are coming from, when i first get back into squating with the safety bar I will definately start light.

                  • Layne,

                    Do you still use the 10g of BCAA's + Dex + Creatine + BA postworkout? Thanks and I hope you get well soon!

                      • Layne,

                        If I can I have two questions:
                        1. I was looking for some ideas for workouts on bb.com. Do you recomend a routine for chest like the article you put on that site (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne5.htm) for someone in their first year of body building or would you stick the the basics of a routine with barbell benches for a while?

                        The other routine I was looking at using was:
                        Barbell Bench Press (warm-up) 2X12-15
                        Barbell Bench Press 3X8-10
                        Incline Barbell Press (every third workout substitute dumbbells) 3X 8-10
                        Dumbbell Flyes # X 8-10.

                        2. The other question was for natural bodybuilders do you think it is important to establish a powerlifting base (one using good form, not just big numbers) initially when beginning training or would it be more productive to focus entirely on hypertrophy, just building big muscles? I keep hearing some pros say the more you lift the bigger the muscle, but I also remember see others professing the importance of good form over weight, though intensity is important.

                        • sup layne, i was wondering if u listened to the dr. pescatore segment on NBR last wk. i mean everytime someone just come out and denounce somethin (in this case, carbohydrates consumption) so completely sounds fishy and propaganda-ish to me especially when he has a book coming out and all that. he was basically saying that even oatmeal or brown rice dont really have a place in a physique athletes diet (well he didnt really specify both offseason and precontest or just one or the other)

                          what u think of his arguments? is it scientific and sound enough for your critical eye?

                          have a very safe and speedy recovery man

                              haha u dont know how many times i have listened to those 2 episodes of NBR when u and dave talked bout diets...

                              the biochemistry part of both schools (layne vs. dave) i understand and i guess what i really meant to ask is that what u think of people who use the "cavemen were essentially eating a very low carb diet" as the backbone of their arguments that carbohydrates are non essential in our diets. thanks again!!

                              • couple quick questions layne.

                                i have a client early at 6am who i train for an hour. would it be okay to sip bcaa's during training and then have a big breakfast when i get home or should i have a whey shake and some fruit when i get up for sufficient cals to halt overnight catabolism?

                                also, how is this surgery/recovery effecting your lab work, studying, and overall quest for your PHD?
