    Lift the fcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  4. It gets so crazy with all the conflicting information.


    Ben Pakulski(IBBFF Pro, Kinesiologist and psycho researcher) in MI40 says to avoid carbs close to workouts because it blunts the release of GH which normally would occur at the beginning of a workout, but that you should take a fast acting carb(Karbolyn, Kwik Karb, Dymatize Flud, etc) about 30 minutes into the workout to allow GH to be released but then cut off the rise in cortisol that would normally happen. I have read several studies on ergo-log.com that show taking a fast digesting carb really blunts cortisol release during and after exercise, which leads to a much better Testosterone:Cortisol ratio(the "anabolic ratio"), which is one of the keys to being in an anabolic state...

    I can't post the link because I don't have enough posts, but if you go to ergo-log.com and search "cortisol during weight training" the first result that comes up is the one with one of the studies showing a graph of cortisol levels for people who took sugars during training and those who didn't...title of study is "Muscle fibres grow faster with 40 g sugars during strength training"

    The normal cortisol response to weight training is actually correlated with higher LBM. Same thing with ROS -> better recovery. Bottom line: stop trying to micromanage everything and lift!

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    Got any pertinent studies showing this? All of the studies I have read and seen and most of the programs I have read state the opposite...
