    Hmm, I have no idea really. That is a bit like asking, "Where did you learn to workout?" I mean, you could say "I started here", or "this person first showed me...." but you couldn't really summate what you know in a single place!

    where would one start? any books? anything in particular that a novice can read and learn that you reccommend over something else?

    I honestly would not know what to tell you dude. I began reading my mother's old textbooks and began from there!

  5. Crazyfool: I highly recommend the book Understanding Nutrition as a good book that goes over in depth the macro nutrients as well as how the body reacts to them. It really has everything you need to know unless you've taken college courses but this book is, I'm sure going to teach you a lot as it did me.

    I'm not getting into this debate either because some of this is over my head as well. I mean I do have a good understanding, but there are some things that have been said that have lost me. I'm just gonna follow along and absorb.

    I didn't know what I was about to start when I posted this thread. Hahaha

    i have a very good understanding of nutrition

    the pathways that mullet speaks of is what i need to grasp better.

    (graduating soon with a BS in nutrition)

    Oh that's cool,still a good book thoguh.

  12. Mr. Mulletsoldier, it would appear that you are a quite meticulous and thorough examiner of ones logical fallacies. Unfortunately you indulged in a long winded, yet valid, response which attempted to correct points which were already made(albeit hastily summarized).

    Yes Type 2B(IIx) muscle fibers are classified as intermediate utilizers of both glycolytic and oxidative pathways. As I stated this in my initial post.

    I see how you may have assumed a few potentially false assumption that i may have appeared to make in my post. Yet again you have skipped right over what was actually said, and made certain criticisms based on what i should have more thoroughly explained. I never stated that Type 2B muscle fibers had the highest potential for hypertrophy, nor did i state any further assumptions of this particular fibers role.

    To clarify; Genetic predisposition is the ultimate deciding factor of muscle type proportion and distribution. The percentage of any given type of skeletal muscle fiber is also largely influenced by its anatomical place in the body(structure tells of function). Fast twitch muscle fibers (especially 2a)have the greatest capacity for hypertrophy and strength/power output. To increase relative performance you must develop all aspects of performance (Strength, Power, Endurance, est)

    I appreciate your knowledge, in depth responses, and critical thinking skills as applied to strength and fitness. But of coarse i have a couple issues with some things you have stated.

    #1 Sarcoplasmic fluid is largely dependent on ones muscular glycogen stores. So, based on your statements, how exactly would one increase intramuscular fluid in a glycogen depleted state?
    #2 What information are you basing your statement that "Type 2a fibers DO have a high oxidative capacity." ? Every book i have says the opposite...

    Do you seriously feel that fasted strength training is an efficient way to burning fat and build strength? Based on my research i am skeptical to say the least. Although, with adequate bcaa and possibly some additional supplementation this may be realistic? What do you think? Please feel free to joust.

  13. [QUOTE=crazyfool405;1735497]glucose isnt really necessary nutrient your body can deal without it and much more effectivly IMO QUOTE]

    I hope you are referring to single sugar dietary dextrose/ glucose. Glucose is extremely important for nearly every basic cellular function. It is stored in the liver and skeletal muscle tissues as glycogen. I'm sure you must have been referring to dietary simple sugars ie glucose; seeing as you are working on a degree in nutrition....

    Ingestion of glucose is not necessary for survival or optimum health.

    In maintenance I like to keep them to 5-20 grams/day when cutting/bulking they can be as low as maintenance or as high as 500(on select days)

  15. I'm trying this out, to a degree, come tomorrow. If/when I wake up, I ain't eating nothing, not for at least a couple hours. Oh yeah, I may even get my workout for tomorrow in before I eat. We shall see how it goes.

    Any thoughts on taking PEA during my fasted duration?

    I am so subbed into the ensuring debate

    Correction, this is what you said:

    They are also easily fatigued and primarily use the Glycolytic and Creatine Phosphate energy channels. The oxidative capacity of this muscle is VERY VERY LOW.
    I am unsure how much more clear than a capitalized 'very' repeated three times can be. In your initial post you attempted to posit Type IIx fibers as having a low oxidative capacity. Nothing taken out of context or misinterpreted there.

    I see how you may have assumed a few potentially false assumption that i may have appeared to make in my post. Yet again you have skipped right over what was actually said, and made certain criticisms based on what i should have more thoroughly explained.

    No? So there is another reason why you said:

    FASTED STRENGTH or POWER TRAINING IS USELESS!!!!!!!!
    Capitalized with seven exclamation marks directly preceding your explanation [and mistaken] positioning as Type IIx as the [apparently] most important fiber type in power training?

    To clarify; Genetic predisposition is the ultimate deciding factor of muscle type proportion and distribution. The percentage of any given type of skeletal muscle fiber is also largely influenced by its anatomical place in the body(structure tells of function). Fast twitch muscle fibers (especially 2a)have the greatest capacity for hypertrophy and strength/power output. To increase relative performance you must develop all aspects of performance (Strength, Power, Endurance, est)
    Exactly. Which is why I was confused about your above post. You seemed to make it disregarding the importance of fiber composition re: The Oxidative Pathway.

    #1 Sarcoplasmic fluid is largely dependent on ones muscular glycogen stores. So, based on your statements, how exactly would one increase intramuscular fluid in a glycogen depleted state?
    How is one glycogen depleted after a fasted-rest state? Unless you are running marathons in your sleep, Glycogenesis from the preceding day[s] will have muscle-belly stores amply supplied. We undergo nocturnal lipolysis [due to myriad hormone release, somewhat unrelated to this conversation] because of the compact nature of FFAs, and the low-demand for the mitochondrial oxidation of FAs; as opposed to the energy required for Glycolysis/Glycogenolysis, and the associated low-energy yield. Your glycogen stores will remain largely untouched overnight, and, unless your diet is horrible, will be more than adequate for the proceeding morning.

    Further, this nocturnal hydrolyzation of stored triglycerides is precisely why [despite your assertion] that resistance training in a fasted state will literally burn fat. The body merely positions FAs as the primary oxidative substrate and utilizes energy which would have been redeposited.

    #2 What information are you basing your statement that "Type 2a fibers DO have a high oxidative capacity." ? Every book i have says the opposite...
    Odd, you must be reading them wrong. Most entry-level textbooks position Type IIa as having an intermediate-to-high oxidative capacity, with Type IIb being the lowest, and Type I being the highest [with the inverse being true of the glycolytic pathway]. Though, much of the research utilizing muscle biopsies I have seen lately suggests that Type IIa fibers have an extremely high potential for increasing their oxidative capacity with continued bouts of resistance training [the studies I posted which you ignored J/K, ]

    Do you seriously feel that fasted strength training is an efficient way to burning fat and build strength? Based on my research i am skeptical to say the least. Although, with adequate bcaa and possibly some additional supplementation this may be realistic? What do you think? Please feel free to joust.
    I do, though I am unsure which research you would be referring to? As I see it, you may be caught in the stigma that the glycolytic pathway is a snap-point reaction, and that if you do not eat one hour preceding your workout your body will have no glycogen. Such is absolutely not the case. Unless you:

    a) Have a horrid diet;
    b) Ran a marathon directly preceding your rest period or;
    c) Ran a marathon in your sleep.

    Your glycogen stores will be adequate to increase sarcoplasmic fluid during a bout of fasted training.

    This is the supplement program that I associate with my fasted training [kudos to B5150 for compiling it]:

    Upon Rising: Fasted
    USPLabs Recreate™ - 2 caps [norepinephrine, T3/T4, HSL increase to modulate energy metabolism; caffeine for additional FA oxidation; cactus alkaloids to suppress hunger]
    USPLabs PowerFULL™ - 3 caps [tangential GH increase to further induce lipolysis; Dopamine induction to regulate the satiation pathway and increase peak torque production]
    USPLabs AnabolicPump™ - 1 cap [AMPk induction with its myriad effects on regulating the lipogenic/lipolytic pathway]

    +30 mins later intra w/o drink:
    Xtend BCAA - 12.5g
    NutraPlanet Leucine - 7g
    NutraPlanet Beta Alanine - 3g
    NutraPlanet Creatine Mono - 2.5g
    [these all have their obvious place - no need to explain]

    Immediately following last set: 1 P-Slin dumped in shake:

    Immediate Post Work Out Shake:
    Xtend BCAA - 12.5g
    NutraPlanet Leucine - 7g
    NutraPlanet Beta Alanine - 3g
    NutraPlanet Creatine Mono - 2.5g
    Ground oats - 90g

    i dont really agree with some stuff they teach at all.

    look at the link i put up a lil while back on this forum....

    i personally feel much better on low carb moderate fat and high protein.

    also my blood work always comes back better when on it.


    read up on it,

    also for people that have seizures they INDUCE ketoACIDOSIS (which is not particularly safe) to help with the seizures.

    and people live with seizures their whole life and this is a treatment for it.;....

  20. Made this post a second ago which is relevant to the conversation:

    Most definitely. I remember when I first introduced it, only really B5150 and Snagency picked up the program and modified it to suit their needs. Which is, of course, totally understandable; people will use what has always worked for them, and rightfully so.

    However, most will have an immediate backlash to fasted training because of the accepted train of thought in weight-training: Carbs, carbs, carbs, carbs, carbs! I think many do not realize that the body's sole purpose for accumulating fatty acids into stored triglycerides is to use them as energy; and that is why our bodies are so efficient at increasing our WAT [white adipose tissue] stores. Glucose is simply the secondary mechanism for energy provision for most tissue types; this is also why excess glucose can be converted to triglycerides: Triglycerides are a more efficient and compact energy source.

    Also, the oxidative phosphorylation of fatty acids has a higher energy yield than the oxidative phosphorylation of glucose, and therefore, provides more energy per gram [remembering a gram of carbohydrates has four calories while a gram of fat has nine calories]. This is due to several factors, including the catalyzing necessary to enter each into the Krebs Cycle, as well as the fact that Fatty Acids are hydrophobic [do not bind to water]. I believe when worked out in proportion, fatty acids carry six times the amount of energy as carbohydrates; and following, if the body relied on carbohydrates as its primary energy source [instead of fatty acids], your body would need to be comprised of about 34% glycogen.

    Barring any serious physiological impingements, our bodies are incredibly efficient systems meant to keep energy in almost perfect homeostasis; people seem to think, for whatever reason, that the lipogenic process is somehow precluded from this system! Training fasted merely utilizes the body's own natural processes to maximize performance; it merely utilizes energy stores which would have been wasted.

  21. mullet what about someone on a keto diet (lets pretend theres no refeeds for a second...)

    would fasted training be helpful for weight loss or induce muscle catabolism due to depleted glycogen stores?

    i see what you are saying though with fasted training and glycogen stores,

  22. Way I see it, we evolved eating carbs (from veggies and fruits, fuck grains), so why not eat them? Will keep you out of ketosis more than likely, but the overall carb count will be low, and your overall health will surely benefit.

    Well, permanent Ketosis is different that the induction of a quasi-ketogenic state with proper supplementation to 'spur' the body into doing so. I am not suggesting a permanent glycogen depleted state, as that would ultimately be counterintuitive to gaining muscle.

    This is why I enjoy my program: One receives the benefit of reducing adipose stores, while simultaneously placing the body in a state of preferential energy use and not risking muscle-wasting.

    I'm not saying not to, bruv; merely suggesting that, when used properly and tangentially, fasted training has its place in a balanced training and nutrition regime.

    Plus, we actually evolved eating animal protein and fat predominantly! Carbohydrates were beyond a secondary food source [and both forensic anthropological evidence and the way our bodies metabolize fatty acids v., carbohydrates tell us this!]

    I was just stating in general Mulleto! Also, if I implied that carbs were or should be the primary source of nutrition, well, my bad, I don't think that at all!
