  • LAYNE, if we keep our cardio at the fat burning zone(130) for 30 minutes, is there an average amount of calories we should be looking to burn?

    I do cardio after my workout... should I drink my post-workout shake right after weights and before cardio or after both weights and cardio?

    • first off, ditch that 'fat burning zone' nonesense. If you are going to do cardio... then work hard at it. 30 minutes is a good time period; hit it hard make sure you burn about 300-400 kcals

      • On that note. I constantly see people going so slow on cardio trying to maintain 'the fat burning zone' b.s. Hell they're not even working working up a sweat. By the way most those people are over weight.
        At a higher heart rate you do infact burn some carbs for fuel, but you also burn fat. If you look at the amount of calories burned at a higher heart rate, you'll see that you burn more fat calories in a shorter amount of time than strolling along. Also part of doing cardio is to stimulate your cardiovascular and central nervous systems. This happens at a much greater capacity at higher heart rates. Plus you get the added benefit of having your metabolism of overdrive for up to 24 hours (according to a study I read in Runners World Magazine).

          • Layne I have a theory. Please lay to rest this argument I have with a friend about concomitant use of diuretics and creatine. Maybe I can say "I'm wrong." and it will be over.

            The theory:
            Moderate use of diuretics (i.e. caffeine, particularly "cutting supplements") will not detract from the use of creatine. Why? Because diuretics act on interstitial H20, that is, the water between the cells. Creatine pulls water into the muscle cells, thereby rendering it unaffected by said diuretics. As long as you maintain adequate hydration, creatine will have "enough water to volumize the muscle cell" and not be affected negatively by diuresis.

            Yes or No? I value your advice as a Biochemistry degree holder, working on mine right now.

            • well you can't completely seperate one layer from the other, if you remove interstitial water, most likely other compartments will 'leak' in order to equilibrate the pools

              • Good point. If it were you, would you consume caffeine and creatine not "together" but in the same day, so to speak? Do you think it makes a difference?

                • Layne- i just got the Dialene4 in the mail tonight and i just had one question. it says to take the second serving 6 hours after the first one. but i dont go to the gym for another 3 hours. will it affect my workout like that(i mean by come down off it) or could i just wait for another 2 hours(8 hours in between each dose) and take it closer to work out?

                    I would take one serving in the morning and then the other 45 minutes preworkout

                      I honestly don't think it makes a big difference

                      • As a side note. Today the Nutritional Sciences Division had their annual poster contest. I tried to get in but for some reason my submission never went through. No big deal. Two hours before the judging the head of the division called and said a girl dropped out and they needed to fill the spot and asked if I would do it. I didn't have anything ready, had not practiced and didn't have a nice poster of my research prepared, I just had to use regular printer paper. Well I ended up winning it anyway, with pretty much no practice or anything. Made me feel really good about my research

                        • Way to go brother .

                          So does that mean we're not dealing with a total crackpot on this thread?

                          • Layne now i understand what you ment about wanting to DESTROY the weights. i didnt take it with amp just some NO xplode (only took one pill) and i was total focus and didnt want to rest inbetween sets. i didnt feel tired or sore and i wanted to do more weight even though i was maxed out i wanted to try more. i think if you get carried away you can easily hurt your self. but all in all the first dose was pretty good. just wish it would last longer then 20 days though
