      it's just differences in bodyfat distrabution, probably due to thousands of variables

        how's everything layne ,

        Just finished the DVD and it was very informative, was better then the other bodybuilding dvd's where you just watch the guy train and tells you nothing y he's training that way, good DVD

        was hoping if you could help clear some things up for me

        First thing is Vit C , i hear people taking up to 6 grams a day! and others say whats in your multi-vitamin is plenty, whats the real deal? at the moment im taking 1 animal pak a day which has 500mgs of vit c , then i add an extra 500mg 2x later in the day for a total of 1.5 grams of vit c a day? this seem overboard? I'm also taking 200mg of Alpha Lipoic Acis 2x a day for a total of 400mg a day. which others have said to skip the extra vit c all together. just confused and don't wanna take more then im suppose to.

        2nd question , is on calcium , how much should one supplement a day with , im around 1500mg's a day ,im getting mix results with this as well.

        Last one ,

        my supplement stack ,
        1 animal pak a day
        500mgs 2x a day vit c
        200mg's 2x a day ALA
        glucosamine/msm - 2g's each
        calcium - 1500mgs a day
        fish oil - 6 grams a day
        whey protein
        creatine mono 5 grams a day

        what else would you recomend? was thinking BCAA's to the mix, whats your thought.

        your insight means alot
        200mg vitamin C will saturate neutrophills and at 500mg you start to get some vitamin C showing up in the urine. at 1-2g levels you can start to have it act as a pro-oxidant rather than an anti-oxidant. I would stick with 500mg/day max.

        i would add bcaas, beta-alanine, and citrulline malate if you have the money (xtend has bcaas and CM... yes shameless plug)

          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?
          it really depends on many factors. for newer trainees they definitely do not need to go to failure as much, as well as people training for strength increases probably don't want to constantly be going to failure. For pure hypertrophy failure is probably ok but what you don't want to do is go so damned hard that after 3 sets you gas and are worthless the rest of the workout... that's where leaving one in the hole so to speak can help you if it allows you to extend your workout by adding extra effective sets whereas if you had constantly trained to failure you'd be totally spent.

          it's not black and white, there is a TON of gray area

            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!
            yes I actually notice that quite often if the transition from cut to bulk is made properly

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.
              they are absorbed fine no matter when you take them, my research suggests they are more effeciently used for increasing synthesis when taken between meals

                  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
                  IMO eating every 4-5 hours will be better than what you are doing right now, that's what my research suggests anyway

                    • I want everyone to step out a second and be thankful for things today. Tonight I was working out legs and was having a chat with a guy who usually squats the same nights I do. He's real strong and a real nice guy. I was helping him out with his front squat form. Later that night a guy comes running out of the bathroom "there's someone collapsed in the bathroom" Josh (works the desk) and I ran back to see what was up and it's the guy I was squatting next too, collapsed, not moving, not breathing, eyes wide open. We couldn't get a pulse so Josh started CPR, we got someone at the front desk to call 911 and Isabel always thinking on her toes grabbed the defibrillator from the front desk. Apparantly he had a faint heart beat because the defibrillator would not let us discharge as it sensed a heart beat. Josh must have done CPR on him for 8 minutes straight til the paramedics showed up. They intubated him and gave him a shot of epinephrine and kept doing CPR (they had a faint pulse as well so they didn't use their defibrillator either). They wheeled him out but he was still non-responsive. Turns out the guys name is Antonio and is 34 years old, married, and a father so if you are the praying time please say a few for him, if not just be thankful for your health. I truly hope the guy is ok. A really nice guy.

                      Needless to say it put a damper on the rest of the workout but I decided to hammer it out anyway just in my own way to be thankful for being able to do what I love doing.

                      • Thats too bad. Good thing someone found him and their were people who could react under stress. Having an AED in a gym is a smart plan. Let us know if you hear anything.

                          Bummer, man. I wonder what would cause that.

                          I appreciate being whole and able so much.

                            that makes sense , kinda like having a drink a day for heart health , and getting wasted linked to poor health , more is not better in that sense.

                            would it be a waste for me to keep taking the 400mg's of ala i take a day? or would that be overkill? would it have a different affect since its not the same antioxidant? always heard good things about ala.

                            Also as far as taking xtend, what kind of doses and timing is recomended to get the best results?

                            Whats the best way to take xtend when on a budget and trying to make the xtend last?

                                thanks for the reply. i realize that i sometimes overthink things which can be a problem since the i have no schooling and dont know anbody involved in the sports/nutrition personally the only info i get is from the internet. sometimes the info i find is so conflicting so while im at it i'd like to ask you a few questions regardin bete alaline.

                                1. should it be loaded over the first few weeks?
                                2. any need or benefit to take it on off days?
                                3. what is an effective dose?
