        Couple of things, there is very little or no experimentation with performance enhancing drugs in the US, unless they are related to a pathological process.

        It is related to ethics approval.


        Insulin is the anabolic hormone of nutrient storage, not GH.

        GH increases protein synthesis, not the transport of amino acids into muscle. When insulin levels are high, GH is low and vice versa.

        I would also think that the rate limiting step in amino acid transport would be the GLUT transporters, not necessarily the insulin.
        yea, pretty much lol

          Very impressive upper body vascularity and size! I see what you mean by the "no legs" comments I've heard you make in the past. But you sure have brought them up. Do you remember your height/weight for that show?
          i was 5'10.5 and 175 lbs there.

            can you be more specific with your question? maybe it's so simple it's confusing me but I don't know exactly in what context you mean.

            Being big is only one aspect of bodybuilding, being big doesn't mean anything if you don't have symmetry and aren't in condition. I've beaten many guys who outweighed me by 20 + lbs just because I was so much leaner than them

                • layne, is your goal to be >200lb LBM as a natural. Not many guys can hold 200lb LBM as a natural but it seems realistic for you!

                  • Layne,

                    I know you like to get psyched up when you lift. Do you ever get complaints from other gym members?

                    My workout partner and I get this at some gyms a lot.

                    • Hey Layne,

                      I am a HUGE fan of the mini bulk/mini cut cycles. But have you ever tried surpluses on lift days and deficits on off days with some cardio?

                      I know it sounds ridiculous, but I am doing it right now and I'm actually getting stronger on the days that I lift and I lose fat on my off days (I know my recovery is somewhat limited), but dude, at the end of the week, I do caliper testing, and my lean mass goes up, with fat going down.

                      The benefit of this is that I never have to go into a REAL cutting cycle and sacrifice strength (I HATE squats + lower carbs).

                      It's pretty cool. Just curious if you've ever tried anything like this... Peace, man. Heal soon.

                      • Layne, came across some info in a mag about soy protein being better at reducing muscle damage after exercise than whey protein

                        I searched for the study and came across this...what do you think?

                          not so much anymore, most people in my gym know me and know that's just me doing what I do. They know I'm personable that's just how I like to lift. Some people give me dirty looks but the overwhelming amount of people that say something to me are positive about my way i lift
