  • Great work Layne! Can't wait to see you back on the stage bro!

    Thank God for muscle memory!

    • Layne,

      Looking solid buddy. I can see those improvements (particularly legs from side).

      It appears that you are maintaining quite well in your upper body as well.

      Keep it up!

      • Layne,

        How often do you think one should train to failure (not actually attempting the last rep you would literally fail to execute - stopping after the rep before that) when doing one of your wave loading power/hypertrophy splits? Does your answer change for someone who is cutting vs. someone who is bulking?

        I think I recall you saying start out at around half the sets to failure, and then go from there as your body adapts?

              • WOW Layne!
                Very impressed with the improvments you've made lately. Really helped that you were in good shape to begin with and you didn't let yourself go to poo when you had to be inactive.
                I simple can not believe that the only thing I can see with your pec is that tiny scar. And when you get tan that will probably be barely visable.
                See I told you when this all wnet down that the muscle would come back fast...but some of that there LBM is just new brudda!!
                Excellent work!
                Ah hell you got me all fired up now!! lol

                • Very Impressive, bro! Yeah, I hear ya on the spending time thing... my fiancee thinks I do too much as it is... good thing I'm not a natural pro with other natties consulting me online every day.... or is it a good thing?
                  Anyway, I did have one question whenever you have time. I just upped my carbs again to 250 and slowly working into that 4-8 week bulk (eventually my carbs should be 300-350). I was slowly leaning out at 150-200g/day and when I upped them this week... I did look fuller, no surprise there, but I also tightened up a little! I couldn't believe it! I thought I was going to smooth out more and my waist would start to grow again, but I think I'm still in a fat-loss phase by accident! (why didn't I do this 3 years ago???!!!??) Anyway, have you ever noticed this in yourself or any of your clients? It's strange but I'm not going to complain, I love my carbs!

                  • i have a question regarding bcaa and figured this was the place to post it. Would bcaas be absorbed better or drive protein synthesis more effeciently if taking inbetween meals and during workout. I've been taking them with wpi and breakfast, pre and post with wazy and wpi. I'm new to this internet commmunty but this seems like the best place to field question because of the high level of expertise of members here. any insight would be much appreciated.

                      A couple of pages back Layne recommended:

                      5gm between meals
                      10gm Postworkout
                      10gm Bedtime...

                      Occasionally he will wake up at night and have them.

                      • layne better to take 5g bcaa with 2.5 of it leucine or better to take 3g straight leucine? pre workout

                        • hey Layne, if I'm not mistaken you said you have been eating every 4 hours in the offseason and getting good results, right?

                          I usually eat every 3 hours but due to school and work I might have to go 3.5 hours between some meals, do you think that's fine or should I bring a shake to drink between meals?

                          Thanks

                          • Can i just ask everyone ( including Layne ) what they think about this routine. Im going to try it for about 8-10 weeks and hoping to notice both strength and muscular gains. Some people would say it is over training but others would say its not with proper pre post workout shakes and diet.

                            NOTE: CARDIO WILL BE PERFORMED TWICE PER WEEK FOR 30-60 MINUTES.
                            DUE TO LOWER BACK INJURY I HAVE TO GO VERY LIGHT ON DEADLIFTS AND DON'T LIKE HITTING MY LEGS AS OFTEN AS OTHER BODY PARTS DUE TO THE STRAIN ON MY LOWER BACK.

                            • You cannot do this routine naturally imho. Too much work.
                              No one is special, some were patient.

                              • thats what i thought when i first looked at it but its not as much volume as it looks. Hitting each bodypart twice per week. With about 12-16 sets per body part which i like doing as i prefer higher volume than 8-10 saets per bodypart.
