IF you tell people they eat too frequently they'll say well I'll just eat 2-3 meals per day... but if you tell them they don't eat frequently enough they'll eat 8-10 meals per day. Find THE MODERATE GROUND! Our labs signaling and protein synthesis data leads me to believe that ever 4-5 hours eating will be best... do I have any rock hard data to support it? No, it's just my theory. Check out the april issue of MD to see my reasoning.

      May I ask how you work your pre-mid-post workout nutrition in to that? Say you eat at 8 a.m. and wait two hours to workout at 10:00 a.m. I usually have a carbs and protein shake before/during/after but that would kind of ruin the 4-5 hour break between. Or do you eat, wait about 2 1/2 to 3 hours or so and have a carb meal before working out and a full protein based meal after? If you have any links to where you talk about this a bit more I would appreciate it and I will def. read the article in the mag when it comes out.

        so if you work say an 8-5 p.m. job. you it would be like this

        7 am meal 1
        1100 meal 2
        300 meal 3
        700 meal 4
        1100 time to sleep

        or every 5 hours

        7 am meal 1
        1200 meal 2
        500 meal 3
        1000 meal 4

        time for bed.

        there isnt enough time to eat 5 meals spaced 4-5 hours apart unless you sleeping 4 hours per night

        but i will definelty read that april issue to see if you break it down in more detail.

        thanks
        dude, eat at 11 pm before bed and that's 5 meals. why would you not eat before bed?

        • Hey Layne!

          I deadlift once a week, about 3-4 warm up sets and then one 1 working set with reps from 3-6 reps that goes to failure. After my working set, I'm totally spent. My lower back gets sore for a really long time after this, and it has been affecting my squatting on my leg day which is always 4 days later. If I push my leg day any further, then my lower back will be healed, but my legs will be too sore to deadlift 100% 4 days later.

          My current split is...

          Day 1: Chest/calves/abs
          Day 2: Back
          Day 3: Rest
          Day 4: Shoulders/traps/deadlifts
          Day 5: Rest
          Day 6: Rest/HIT Cardio
          Day 7: Bi/Tri/Forearms
          Day 8: Legs
          Day 9: Rest

          Then the cycle is repeated.

          I know the cycle is kind of long, but I'm an ectomorph and this cycle calls for 4 days of lifting a week which is really good for me in terms of recovery. The only bodypart that takes a while to recover is my lower back. Do you think I should just add in one more day of rest after my Bi/tri/Forearm day so my lower back is 100% for squatting?
          Thank you for your time!

              • glute ham raises

                Hey layne, congrats on the column. Def gonna be a great contributor to the mag. I got a question about Ghr and how you went about mastering them. Were you strong enough to perform them off the bat without assistance? i can control my descent but the point were you stall and ascend feels brutal on my hammy tendons. Also I know you dont really believe in overtraining the way others do. If I have been Squating and stiff deads on leg day and full deads on back and been feelin alright would you see a problem with that?

                • Hey Lane,

                  Quick question. Im on a keto diet right now and ive been taking 5g leucine with my preworkout and postworkout shakes, but ive been reading a bunch of articles about the best time to take it and im just getting confused. As a fellow natural, what would you recommend? I also take the animal pak multi, creatine mono, and whey protein isolate. Thanks!

                  -Kyle

                  Also what is your opinion on glutamine?

                  • Hey Layne,

                    any tips on rack chins? I tried them in the squat rack (smith machine is fail at my gym) the other day and couldn't get the feel in my lats. I had my feet elevated on a bench in front of me like in your videos. Something I'm missing or just retarded? lol.. It feels like its all arms.

                    Thanks man..

                      • Today's workout

                        Squatting today was semi-heavy but well below max, but I was doing it without a mirror. So it was a bit different. I was also trying out different knee wraps to see which ones I liked best. I felt real good and did all of the sets easy even without the mirror

                        1- 135 X 12
                        2- 185 X 9
                        3- 245 X 6
                        4- 295 X 4
                        5- 335 X 2
                        6- 375 X 1
                        7- 405 X 1
                        8- 455 X 1
                        9- 455 X 1
                        10- 455 X 1

                        Then it was time for deadlifts. I decided I would push myself to see what I can do. All sets were done with a double OVERHAND hook grip

                        1- 225 X 5
                        2- 315 X 5
                        3- 405 X 3
                        4- 455 X 2
                        5- 495 X 1
                        6- 545 X 1
                        7- 585 X 1
                        8- 605 X 1
                        9- 630 X 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Easy! The APA record for my weight class raw is 625. I plan to break it baby!

                        of course I got a vid

                          • That is a hell of a deadlift. You made it look easy!

                            I'm still about 100lbs behind you. For me, the weight increases on deads don't seem to move in a stair step fashion. They'll just be stuck for the longest time and then bump up in weight almost unexpectedly.
