    • creatine causes water to be retained INSIDE the muscle cell. That is a good thing. definitely use it while cutting. I take it even the day of the show.

        • Pure mono (german) correct? all other forms are BS?

          Do you agree that excess creatine can bloat you? or make you puffy or no?

          Last thing I'd like to kindly ask how much do you use, and is there a limit?


          Thank you Layne!

          • Layne, I know I got off to a pretty bad start with you, but I was wondering if I could ask you some questions about your research and your proposed meal structure for optimal MPS? I don't want to write out long detailed posts if you have bad feelings and do not want to answer, which I would of course understand based on recent back and forth. Thanks.

            • Layne I read an article today talking about the combination of Arginine pyroglutamate and L-Lysine to increase HGH production. What's your thoughts on this? It was based on an University study but I don't believe everything I read. Thought you would be the man to ask. Thanks for the help.

                well excess can cause bloat from GI distress.

                I use 4-5g per day of monohydrate, but it doesn't have to be german lol so long as it's lab tested

                    maybe it does. I still have yet to see ANY EVIDENCE that increasing GH in the physiological range in adults has any anabolic effects, I rather doubt it does

                    • Thank you!

                      Is there any studies or so / your opinions that show a maximum limit per day on creatine dose? such as I read 3-5g max is absorbed in your body, rest = you pee it out is this true?


                      Thanks!

                      • Hey, Layne. Do you think there's any cause to avoid whey protein concentrate considering the oxidized cholesterol it contains? Or is the study that's generating the hysteria simply inconclusive at this stage?

                        Comment


                        • to be honest i haven't seen the study. but whey is so low in cholesterol that even if it was oxidized i can't imagine it doing much damage

                          • Layne i was wondering your take on the keto/cha diet for a 27 year old meso. Do you like this approach to dieting?

                            Comment


                            • please read any article I have on dieting like http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne36.htm

                              plus i've answered that question probably over a dozen times in this very thread so run a search for it or google it for plenty of results =)

                              • Hey Layne,
                                I'm a bodybuilder at heart but I'm very fat right now. It will take a year to get lean again(I miss the competition) but recently A guy I work with suggested I should do a power lifting contest. It's a natural single lift meet so I thought I would do the bench press. I'm a pretty strong bencher but lift more for bodybuilding. So I wanted to see where I was at. I warmed up with a lot of sets but when I got to 405 on the whey down with the weight I felt pain in the side of the chest by the arm pit, like a rubber band being stretched to the brink of breaking I don't think I tore any thing but the area is tender. I felt around and I can't feel any thing out of place or torn. I've noticed tightness in the area before doing lat pull downs and bent over rear lateral raises. So my questions are there supplements that strengthen tendons and maybe some stretching exercises to loosen up the area?
                                I'm also a little paranoid can you tweak something like this and have it heel on it's own?
                                Thank you,
