  • LaynE!! Awesome thread man. I always miss it for a while then have to catch up, and somewhere along the way the many questions I might have get answered. But I do have one...How many years did it take you to squat past 405? Also did you ever injure any part of your body doing so e.g.( lower back, Hips, knee's...etc.etc.)

    • Never injured myself on squats more than a minor tweak here and there. As for getting past 405... I think I did that in 2003 with pretty bad form LOL. So I guess it took me 5 years from when I started taking my training seriously.

      Pretty long road with squats for me

                    • Layne one last thing , do take any extra vitamin e or c supplements as extra antioxidants? or do you just get them from your multivitamin? i hear mix results with adding more c and e into a bodybuilder diet being good/bad for you. curious to what your response is?

                        • the effect on anti-oxidants on the redox state and whether that hampers exercise induced responses is a really good question. I think it's probably something that you do not want to prevent... and therefore should only take them post workout... but that is just conjecture on my part

                          • Hey Layne,

                            Read an old article of yours that called for interworkout carbs from a source like waxy during prep. You still an advocate of such practice? if so, do you feel those are burned up sufficiently enough by someone who wants to do LISS type cardio pwo and have the best environment for fat loss.

                            • i think if you have sufficient pre workout & post workout nutrition, intraworkout is probably overkill, for someone with a fast metabolism who easily disposes of glucose and is prone to hypoglycemia during workouts, a 4:1 ratio of dextrose: protein for may be 40g/10g respectively (depending upon weight) may be something to consider

                                I agree with you, thanks for the response.
