      Do I consider myself that? No. I feel like I'm just a normal guy who knew what he wanted and was willing to do what it take to get there and I never let up even though I had many stumbling blocks along the way.

      Now I get quite a few emails and people coming up to me at shows and telling me that I inspired them or that sort of thing and that is the coolest feeling in the world. I love it. If I can have a positive impact on someone else's life then I think that's fantastic! But do I consider myself an inspiration? Just hard for me to look at myself that way. I'm just a normal guy who works hard and loves what he does.

        well layne, that is what is inspirational about you, what you've accomplished is awesome, the physique you've developed is impressive (and the most impressive thing is it keeps getting more impressive), AND you are a regular guy, you make up-and-comers feel like it is all attainable...which for most of us who started this sport looking at pictures of Ronnie Coleman and Jay Cutler is a nice change of scenery.
        are you "the inspiration?" hell I don't think anyone is "the inspiration"

        but Layne, Phillip Ricardo Jr., Jim Cordova, Martin Daniels, Rodney Helaire, Alberto Nunez, Ben Goins, Brian Whitacre, Clement Yearwood, Doug Miller

        there are some amazing natural bbers out there who are also class acts and although have physiques that take world class genetics and at least a decade worth of consistent work in the gym and kitchen to develop...they feel like something attainable, unlike some of the IFBB pro physiques...(at least attainable without taking drugs)

        • Hey Layne,

          Just starting this thread now and I've been watching some of your video's from BB.com where I noticed you talked a little bit about the following too.

          Ever get answers for these?

          This will likely be the crux of my PhD thesis

          As far as your question, we simply don't know as of now.

              • hey layne i've read your article: "protein the key to maximum gains" --> http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne3.htm

                you say that whey for breakfast is not the best option, i've done this for the last 3 years but it is better to eat egg whites instead?

                        for inflammatory bowel disorders yes I believe it is helpful because it is a major fuel for the enterocyte. But there is 0 evidence it aids in muscular recovery
                        I disagree with the 0 evidence, but you're still the man Layne

                          ok, well what evidence is there? I'm more than happy to change my thoughts on the issue if I am convinced otherwise... but I've read as much literature on the subject as I can get my hands on. I have NEVER seen ANY study showing glutamine decreases protein breakdown or increases protein synthesis in skeletal muscle. If you know of any, I would really like the reference so I can read them
