  • Repost, miss this one? Sorry.

    Layne, I was curious what your thoughts are on Heavy/Light training as outlined here:
    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/xrep15.htm

    The basic concept being: a few days after your normal heavy workout, you do a light, "Pump only" workout, that will flush the muscle with glycogen and nutrients without going to the point of further muscle trauma.

    The reasoning sounds solid, do you think it holds up? Would it possibly increase growth & recovery?

    • Hey layne, you should post some pics of yourself in offseason form....

        • Hey dude, hope you're well.

          Is there a guideline for maximum number of whole eggs a day (just concerned about overdoing the cholesterol)? Is 6 too many?

          • honestly, your cholesterol levels are much much moreso determined by liver production of cholesterol. It is very much a genetic thing. Typically people with low cholesterol won't increase their cholesterol over the long term even if they eat more. wheras someone who has high cholesterol can lower dietary cholesterol and still have elevated cholesterol because their liver compensates by producing more. I think you could have 3 or 4 whole eggs per day and be ok

              • Thanks for the reply man, I really appreciate it.

                Looking swole by the way. Looks like you've put some mean size on there.

                    This thread is awesome! I have been reading through it the past week. Layne, it amazes me how you can keep all these irons in the fire and still maintain everything you do! I have watched you climb the bodybuilding ranks and get your pro card, very admirable! It is cool that there are a lot of other contributers on this site with a good head on their shoulders too.

                    Here's where I am at. My schedule makes it so I have to train at 5:30 AM (never have a conflict). Here is what I have been doing to minimize muscle wasting/maximizing workout intensity. I set my alarm for 2 hours before my workout (3:30 AM), have a shake (17 gms protein, 55 gms carbs) then go back to bed. I then wake up at 5:00, have a dose of caffeine, wait about 15-20 minutes to let that soak in, then have 25 gms dextrose, 20 gms whey, 5 gms BCAA. While I train, I sip on a BCAA/glutamine mix.

                    Question is, does this sound like a good formula?

                    Thanks!

                        Ryan,
                        thanks for stopping by and posting on my thread and I really really appreciate the compliments. I saw you win the overall at Dave Yates show in kankakee in 2005! I think what you are doing right now is pretty solid. Are you trying to put on size, lose fat, or maintain?
