        • Layne, nice site btw.

          Hey, I read somewhere that you argue that HIIT is better for higher carb diets. I'm a big fan of HIIT for fat loss and heart health--lots of literature support. But, a lot of people argue it burns muscle.

          If I've got this right, I would like to hear your rational. Include brief refs to citations if appropriate...

                quite simple. Aneorobic/glycolytic exercise like sprinting that you can only maintain for 10-20 seconds causes you to make very very fast rapid contractions. Now normally most people think stimulating muscle is just about the load you are using, however speed plays a very big part. Hell ask most powerlifters... most of them do a TON of speed work with light weights. That's because even though load is important, speed is also critically important. You can actually stimulate muscle fiber growth through speed contractions. Scientifically I hate analogies, but honestly the real life proof is in the pudding. Look at an endurance runner and look at a sprinter, even before steroids become prominent in sprinting sprinters were still pretty well built with big legs. That is not by accident

                  I must confess to using this one all the time as well. Look at sprinters, wrestlers, etc. Many maintain incredible mass with very little fat. It's no coincedence. Best muscle/fat ratios come with max output/short (but max) time.

                  You have prob also read that HIIT upregulates the ensemble of fatty acid metabolic enzymes also...presumably for the purpose of greater utilization.

                  Without bothering you too much, what sorts of HIIT training time periods would you suggest if you were going to supplant the standard cardio for weight loss? How many?

                  I typically do spinning classes (40 min) that have several periods of max output. Also, I like to roll (wrestle/jiu jitsu). 3-5 min intervals.

                  thanks.

                  • here is my favorite protocol

                    I would do sprinting intervals

                    5 minute warmup

                    50 secs light jog/ 10 seconds sprint
                    48 secs light jog/12 sec sprint
                    46/14
                    44/16
                    42/18
                    40/20
                    40/20
                    42/18
                    44/16
                    46/14
                    48/12
                    50/10

                    5 minute cool down

                        I know you are a strong advocate for the the supplementing of BCAA`s, the problem is that I can only get my hands on BCAA capsules. And I was wandering how the capsules compare to the powder,absorption wise? And would a 1g capsule equate to 1g of BCAA powder?

                        Thanks very much for the help.

                          do you recommend this on a treadmill or outside on a track, also would swimming be advisable?

                            you can do that protocol with anything that you can get your heart rate up high with

                              in terms of cost effectiveness powder is far better, but absorption wise there probably is not much difference

                              • I got a question for you Layne...

                                Which is better to have before going to bed, is it casein or egg protein, I don't see people recommend too much egg protein and it kind of confuses me since egg protein last a lot in the intestines just as casein protein (I believe it's 7 hours).

                                Is it for the water content and its relation to how much your testosterone can go down when having too much water before bed? or is it something else? Is there a problem if I eat my regular 12 egg whites before bed (besides bad taste)?
