    also do you prefer the high carb low fat(20%) diet rather than high fat moderate carbs when cutting?
    if you read my articles you will find that i do not prefer any one type of diet. It is all individual. everything is constructed around the individuals metabolism. I've had some people on 400g of carbs per day to get read and i've had others on 40g. I always chuckle when some of these prep guys try to take cookie cutter plans and put everyone on the same plan and then can't figure out what went wrong when they get inconsistent results.

      • i will probably start out this contest prep at:

        275g protein, 225-250g carbs, 60g fat

        on higher carb days it will probably look like 250/400/55 but that may change

          failure is defined as when you can no longer do another concentric rep
          Well some people say "going to failure" is when you complete your last rep, say your 10th rep for example, but know that you couldn't get an 11th. While others would say training to failure means actually failing the achieve your last rep, like going for the 11th rep but failing to finish it

          • What good does attempting a rep you can't get do you? When you struggle to get a rep and the weight is barely moving, sometimes you might think 'oh shit I hope it get this'.... Then you hit falure You couldn't get another rep if you had to.

            • Hello Layne, hope all is well.

              do you have a link to the site where your studies are that talk about things like leucine and such? I have been looking but can't find squat!
              Also how come so much emphasis on BCAA's on here, but everywhere else I read people say BCAA's are useless compared to EAA's.

              And one more q...do you drink milk still? so many bodybuilders are against it and I saw in your old BB.com article about being in college that you drank it.

              Thanks and take care

              • Hey Layne
                what are your opinions on ZMA supplementing when using a high quality multi?

                Also what is a good BF% to start a competition diet on if you want to do a 20 week prep?
                - I know it may be different for everyone body but just general guideline.

                    well because they don't really understand the research that is why.

                    and because many of them have vested interests in selling EAA products.

                    here is peter garlicks study that proved conclusively that it is the BCAAs out of the EAAs that increase muscle protein synthesis

                    as you can see, when you remove the BCAAs from the complete mixture, protein synthesis does not increase. So hence the other EAAs don't mean shit in terms of increasing protein synthesis in muscle

                      zma is garbage


                      for your last question. you know what i'm going to say LOL. it depends on a ton of factors. bodyfat, only being one. I wouldn't be too far over 15% though unless you are like 150 lbs

                            Add some MYO-T12 to this and you will be on the cover of MD in six months.

                            I believe you stated that you are currently at 240/500/80-90?

                            What does your pre, intra, post supp/nutrition look like currently?

                              thought I would pick your brain a bit again.

                              Have you ever used any nutrient partitioning products at all?
