      I'm currently using a waxy maize product with my PWO shake but with this news i might buy some maltodextrin instead.
      i think all that stuff is overblown anyway. just get some carbs in post workout

          Every time I train my legs, that night I get the worst cramps in my quads. Its seriously one of the worst pains I've ever experienced. When I stand up from sitting down for a bit, they completely lock up as if they are flexed and I can't move. I have to sit back down and when I put my hand over my thigh, I can feel the muscle tensing and moving around its really wierd.

          I figured I wasn't stretching enough or getting enough water but I made sure I did both today and it still happened.

          I went on a double date tonight and got out of the car and it happened, so embarrasing I had to sit in the middle of the street till the feeling went away and I could limp over to the restaraunt.

          Please tell me you have answers for me!

          Thanks bro.
          i'm afraid i really don't, some guys swear by foam rollers but I have never used them so i can't comment

            COuple squat questions:

            I lack flexibility, so I find myself squatting deep, however leaning forward and heals comes off the ground. I have no back pain from squats and and m growing pretty well, I guess I'm trying to figure out will this hinder future growth? ( I usually squat sets of 315 for 15 reps, but I do not go any heavier due to this issue)

            Furthermore, do you recommend putting plates under my heels for stability?
            plates under heels are only treating the symptom, not the problem. the problem is lack of flexibility, so keep working on calf and hip flexibility.
            also, investing in a good 10mm 4" powerlifting belt cannot be overstated. This made a huge difference in my squat form

Im doing a 5 week mini-cut with my carbs at 320-325g a day and im just beginning week 4, do you think there is any reason to implement a refeed in these last 2 weeks? Energy, appetite, and general well-being has not deviated at all from base-line.
              you can if you want, but it doesn't seem you need it

                Or anyone that has this...

                Can you post the link to your contest prep article? I read about half of it a couple of days ago, and now I can't find it!

                Also, when are you going to be at the Scivation booth for the Arnold?
                http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne36.htm

                I will be at the booth friday, saturday, sunday for most of the day. I may walk around here or there or take a few breaks but if you come by and i'm not there... then try back later, eventually you will catch me

                        • Though I am sponsored by them, Scivation whey is honestly the best tasting whey i've ever had, and it's very affordable (10 lb bag is super cheap) and it's the only protein my wife has ever eaten. Everything else she tossed out LOL

                          • Layne, what difference is there between the original Dialene 4 and the new Dialene 4x?

                            • Calcium

                              Layne , I know high protein diets draw calcium out of the body, but how much is really taken out? I'm currently taking 1000mg's of calcium supplement a day which is the rda for men, do you think there is any need to take more? will i make up the difference from all the food i consume through out the day?

                                I'm not Layne (duh), but we're doing research on this right now where I go to school and so far we're finding that while those on higher protein diets do excrete more urinary calcium than those with low protein intakes, they also retain more calcium and have higher bone density pretty much across the board (mind you, this is from preliminary data)

                                if you're exposed to direct stimulus for bone density (i.e. weight training) and meeting the RDA (you're getting more if you're supplementing AND consuming calcium from food) then you should be OK provided you have adequate vitamin D and other mineral intake as well. some people also recommend spacing your calcium dosage so you're not consuming all 1,000mg at once
