  • To Gixxer, I may come of as a bit insulting, but aren't you asking just way too much? Layne is helpful and does answer many of the questions (most often asked already, in fact), but remember that the guy's crazy busy and he provides nutrition/training/contest prep services.

    Just a reminder and to put things into their proper perspective.

    • Also, what do you think about linear high intensity training? Like running for 15 minutes at the maximum speed you can maintain for that time... Then followed by 10-15 minutes of LI for cool-down

      • few more ?'s if you don't mind:

        1- what are your thoughts/experiences with forksolin and TTA as fat burners?

        2- I know you say you try to add lean mass for 4-8 weeks then take ~2 weeks to do a mini cut to take advantage of your hormones/leptin levels, but I'm still not sure how you factor in your "break time" (the time you take to rest after weeks of intense training) or if you change your cardio regime during the deload/break times?
        also - do you ever have cut weeks were you are lifting/doing cardio as intense as you were when trying to add lean mass?

        for instance:
        weeks 1-8: add lean mass
        weeks 6-7: deload and eat 500 cals below maintenance
        weeks 8-12: add lean mass
        weeks 13-15: take a break/deload and eat 500 cals below maintenance

        thx!

          I'd imagine that he'd tell you to keep everything the same, other than simply lowering your caloric intake during those two weeks.

            so you would drop cals by ~1000? i got 1000 assuming you are puting on mass at 500 cals above maintenance, so to drop 1lb, you would lower by 1000 cals

                • she's fine, she had a breast reconstruction for a congenital defect she's dealt with since she was a teenager. The surgery was pretty extensive and it's only today that she's just been able to get up and really move around well.

                    Point taken Steve, I don't want to waste anybody's time! I'm also not looking for any great in-depth, one-on-one, specially tailored advice.

                    I am looking for some reassurance that I'm setting myself up properly so far (Yes/no/depends) and a bit of "if you wanna know how it's done go to XYZ..." or "please see X thread".

                    I didn't want to cause any offence or come off all entitled and demanding!

                    • Gixxer, good attitude there. Let Layne chime in. =).

                      Thanks, to tell you, hiring Layne is one of the best investments out there. You'll learn a ton about the things you think that you already know. =)

                      Good luck!

                        that's cute that you guys both had chest surgeries....you guys are scalpel buddies

                        but in all seriousness I hope it went well, and I wish her a speedy recovery.

                            Plus you have to deal with all my foolish questions

                            Glad surgery went well with the wife Layne.
