  • Question for Layne. I am reading quite a few positive reviews about Xtend. But I don't understand why someone needs it if they eat proper nutrion pre en post workout. When you eat a balanced meal 1 to 2 hours before your workout and about an half our before a whey shake with oats you have plenty of BCAA in your nutrition that helpes to combat protein breakdown. So what's the advantages of Xtend during your workout or some Xtend midnight in comparison to a blended protein shake.

        here is an excerpt from an article I wrote

        -------------------------------
        Despite the numerous positive benefits to BCAA supplementation, there are many skeptics who suggest that BCAAs are overpriced and that one can just increase their consumption of whey protein which is rich in BCAAs. Unfortunately this is not the case. The BCAAs in whey are peptide bound to other amino acids and must be liberated through digestion & absorbed into the bloodstream to exert their effects. Even though whey protein is relatively fast digesting, it still takes several hours for all the amino acids to be liberated & absorbed into the bloodstream. BCAAs in supplement form however, are free form BCAAs and require no digestion and are therefore rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, spiking blood amino acids to a much greater extent than peptide bound amino acids. Even a few grams of BCAAs will spike plasma levels of BCAAs to a much greater extent than a 30g dose of whey protein, impacting protein synthesis and protein degradation to a much greater degree. The reason a supplement has such a powerful effect on blood levels of BCAAs is that unlike other amino acids, BCAAs are not metabolized to a significant extent by the small intestine or the liver, therefore an oral supplement is more like a BCAA injection since it reaches the bloodstream so rapidly.

          heres the link
          www.metabolicdiet.com
          I tried a diet almost exactly like that which I tweaked myself from palumbos diet and it didnt work for shit so I went all out palumbo and that worked much better for me. Im fine without carbs especially dairy. That shit fucks me up.
          As as funny side note, I became lactose intolerant several years ago but didnt know it because i was eating food at my college cafeteria and figured that was what gave me the shits. Fast foward 2 years later and i was tweaking my diet and realized without milk i was making better gains, wasnt bloated, and didnt have explosive diarrhea twice a day.

          • Layne, or anyone else. I have heard some people talk bad about taking creatine all the way up to a contest. They say because it will cause you to hold water. I'll hold as much water as I can if it is not 'under the skin'.
            Thoughts??

                • Was that just Creatine Monohydrate Layne... or does the type matter?

                    I doubt youd ever catch Layne dead with a non-monohydrate creatine

                      thank you for the input , last thing , if you weren't sponsered by your supplement company what supplements would you actully dish money out and pay for living your bodybuilding lifestyle ,

                      • Ordered Dialene for my store today, and since I'm dieting down I'm thinking I'll pick up a bottle. And suggestions outside of the directions on the label Layne?

                          • oke thx Layne! So the biggest advantage of free form BCAA is spiking the blood amino acids to a much greater degree than vast food, impacting protein synthesis and protein degradation to a much greater degree. Right?

                            I have read in an article that cortisol levels increase during your workout. But that these short increases of cortisol levels aren't a bad thing because protein breakdown goes hand in hand with protein synthesis if you have proper postworkout nutrition. But doesn't free form BCAA inhibit cortisol levels to increase? So that the body can't repair the muscles as much because of the fact that it doesn't have to.
                            I think I am talking .... here but I would like your opinion about it.
