  • Layne, I'm 7 weeks out in the attached pics. I think I will be ready a few weeks early. If I am ready a few weeks early I figured I would lift the same and keep my cardio the same, but slowly add in some carbs each week. I'm eating 1980 calories at the moment with 162 carbs, 218 protein, and 51 fat. I figured I would add about 40-50 grams of carbs a week depending on how early I am if I'm early at all and bump my fat up another ten grams in all. I figured I would stay below maintanence (whatever # that is when I feel like I'm ready). Do you think that I will be ready early? If so does my plan sound ok or is it a bad idea? I figure I will be around 177-178 when I'm ready. I'm about 184 in those pics (181 when I stepped out of bed that day).

      I read in your article that your supposed to use pro tan but there are so many different kinds which is the best to use?

      I ordered the Sunny Day Sunless Tanning Lotion, is that the right stuff?
      I also heare "Hot Stuff" brings out vascularity, what are your opinions on that?
      nothing gives as consistent of a dark, nice sheen as dream tan #2 red bronze. But you have to apply it either the night before or early in the morning as soon as you wake up... and then do another light coat right before stage

          well, I think you are in really good shape and I hate to be a downer but I don't think you'll be ready early. I mean you don't hardly see any hamstring definition. I guess it depends on what your goal is but if your goal is freaky conditioning then I would not even begin to think about backing off the intensity of your diet right now.

          dont' get me wrong, you look good; but you have the potential to look GREAT.

            • Hey Layne,
              I've been cutting for about 2 months now and am about to have surgery to repair a torn ACL. Is it wise to keep cutting after the surgery? I didnt know if the decreased nutrition would negatively affect the healing process. My surgeon said it wouldn't but wanted your opinion on the subject.

              Thanks bro

              • during cutting phases, is it still okay to do moderate volume (8-9 sets for large bp's, and 6 sets for arms) all to failure since calories are restricted, or is a more high volume lower intensity program ideal?

                • Knee Pain

                  Layne,

                  Wanted to ask you about knee wraps since you have a powerlifting side to you as well, I've been training heavier lately and starting to get some soreness under my petella (middle/lower knee area) that i did not have before, My fourm is very good , But i'm wondering if it would be wise for me to invest in a solid pair of knee wraps for my heavey sets on legs? I was always told that wraps were bad for your knees because something with your joints grinding together or something along those lines, not to sure? thats why i'm here asking you.

                    it probably won't, but I would be making sure you are taking some BCAAs & HMB to counteract atrophy

                      don't change routines just because you are cutting, whatever builds muscle will maintain it

                        for knee health I would invest in knee sleeves rather than wraps.

                        I would check out Rehbands or APT Sleeves

                        • What are your thoughts about this segment from T-Nation about training to lose bodyfat?


                          "This is the worst possible time to thrash your muscles. You won't have the nutrients you need to repair and refuel them. It's like demolishing your current house so you can build a new one, only without the materials you need to start the new construction, or the money to pay for those materials.
                          The key to stripping body fat in the weight room is to use your muscles to burn calories, not to destroy your muscles so they aren't good for anything. "
