      no. We use isotopically labeled D5-Phenylalanine and measure it's in cooperation into muscle protein from the precurser intracellular pool via analysis on a GCMS

      injecting a dye would not help you because you would not be able to differentiate between dye in the precursor pool and dye in the protein bound pool

        candy or sugar/fat/sodium can make you quite vascular if you've done the proper preparation leading up to the show, but it's only going to work if you are completely shredded. Nothing is funnier than sitting backstage watching guys who are 9% bodyfat and smooth as hell carb up like crazy.

        Like it's going to frigging matter when you come bringing your B game.

          Interesting.

          What kind of animals have you been testing on?

            our lab has done rats and humans. right now we are doing preliminary testing in our rat model and once we see the results from that will begin designing a human experiment to test some things. Our rat model is quite good however. After a meal their blood work looks almost identical to a human response in terms of concentrations as we have taught them to meal-feed rather than eat ad-libitum

              How did you teach them to meal feed? Did you use some kind of Skinner box variation?

                    natural test boosters are not banned... most of them are just plant extracts. some may help normalize your testosterone if it is low, but i very much doubt any of them will increase it above normal

                    • Hey Layne, how's things?

                      I've been on a pretty low calorie diet and when I'm finished would like to maintain this new level of body fat.

                      I've been slowly chopping calories down over the course of about 5 months. As of right now, according to the Harris Benedict formula, I'm approximately 700 cals under maintenance for 6 days a week, 7th day is a refeed.

                      Are there any guidelines for how fast I can increase calories back up to maintenance so as to avoid any fat gain?

                      • I would basically start slow. Add in 25g of CHO & 5g of fat per day and wait to see how much weight you gain... likely it will be around a half pound simply from water & glycogen, once you plateau for a few days, increase it again by the same amount... and so on and so forth.

                        • Hey layne, Do you feel your joints are a little more fragile while dieting? For instance, my knees give me problems when dieted down on things like lunges, and close stance squats. Also I have little things pop like my elbows when I stand of a chair or I can crack my back and neck when low in bodyfat. I'm going to start jumping on the glucosamine wagon soon but i just wonder if others who get low in bodyfat also get this stuff. Also, as you might guess my normal body type is kind of chunky status so my body is not happy at low bodyfat. So maybe that has something to do with it, eh maybe not.

                              Cheers for the reply.

                              I was hoping there might have been some specific research on this but I suspected it would be a case of trial and error, as most things are.

                                oh no, i'm afraid nothing that specific has been done in research
