    12-15. Any more than that and you tap into oxidative energy pathways that promote muscular endurance.
    Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.

    You can also try Cream of buckwheat, it's quinoa without the fat

    I fell off the wagon a bit this past weekend. Went to visit the peeps and got influenced too much. Had a few pieces of pizza and im sure i didnt hit my protein target saturday and sunday. Everything is back to normal now. 204lbs this morning. Its day #34. Im still getting great pumps in the gym- due to full glycogen stores. Im feeling relatively lean in the morning.. could be a lot leaner. I'd like to lose another 3% bodyfat. Calories are still the same and cardio has been increased to 30 min PWO.. although tonight was only 20 i was exhausted.

    Hit back tonight.. nothing out of the ordinary- 120lb db rows, 120lb shrugs, murdered calves. Ill post some new pics soon

    Oh yea, just wanted to mention that I had a nice piece of a** the other night Chick came over to chill and was like "no I cant, I just met you" when i made some moves. I was like "I respect that". By the end of the night i had her bent over biting the pillow lol

    Well I'm not 4 percent bf yet lol but I can tell there is something peculiar about it. I know if I was eating like I used to with the same amnt of calories I'd be gaining weight- mostly fat. Like I mentioned before there is def a correlation with the way these foods affect insulin release and regulation.

    What makes you think that? Low-load high volume resistance exercise stimulates muscle protein synthesis more than high-load low volume resistance exercise in young men. They also recently finished a long term study(yet to be published) that showed the same results translated to muscle growth.

    Ahh I think I skipped a page, Im on point now though. Still seems like good improvements judging from the pics. Will continue to follow

    You should know that studies have all kinds of flaws. What other things were being monitered in these men? Was there a statistically significant number of subjects and were they screened for other anabolic promoting factors? Also, what is volitional failure? That may have been at 15 seconds.. which is not long enough for oxidative pathways to kick in. How did they determine 1RM? Was the method valid? How about growth hormone release? Ill bet the high volume didnt get a spike in GH compared to the 90%. Also, 90% of 1RM is too high to promote significant hypertrophy, which is why we bodybuilders train in the 8-12 rep range (60-80% 1RM) MOST of the time. How about other objective measures such as LBM at the end of the study?

    How do you know the researchers weren't trying to prove these results? You cant just look at one or two studies.

    I, personally dont train extremely heavy or extremely light but I know if I did 20 reps on all exercises I would deflate like a busted condom.

    I also believe that going passed 12-15 will tap into aerobic pathways and this isn't what we want to enhance.

    Isn't hypertrophy best achieved activating fast twitch fibers?

    Btw I'm going to get on this diet starting Friday.

    Yes thats right. Actually its based more on time. First 10 seconds are atp/creatine phosphate, then up to 30 is glycolytic i believe. Anywhere after that is aerobic/oxidative. High volume will cause the body to convert to aerobic energy metabolism. Of course, there are some type II fast twitch muscles with aerobic/oxidative properties- these are a mix between type I and type II fibers. Doing aerobic (high volume/duration) workouts will cause an increase in slow twitch fibers with more mitochondria, and a decrease in fast twitch fibers that account for strength. There are genetic barriers and some people are born with more of one type but conditioning can make a huge difference. "A high endurance muscle is a small muscle". This is why runners are so small.. not sprinters because they only do 40 yards and such. Its more than just the fact they are burning calories.. the entire muscular landscape and function changes.

    Good to hear you are trying it out. Im loving it and for some reason im not craving alot of junk food.. its a tolerable diet.

    Pretty soon I will begin boiling my chicken breasts instead of baking- this is what Pulcinella did close to the contest.

    magic product. Makes intense cardio a little LESS intense. Example: i am a runner, was running at around 4:45 a km which is about 7:40 a mile. Now im down to 6:30 a mile = 3:50 a km.

    more oxygen to the muscles, more intense workouts, more productive, MORE FAT LOSS. My fav cordygeps products:
    1. ALL OF MST's cordygen line
    2. Drive by App Nut
    3. Blue Gene by Controlled Labs (only had a sample size from a supplier in australia. Want more though!!!)

    I've read a study saying that Cordyceps doesn't enhance oxygen utilization which is how they determined it boosts your anaerobic pathway. Can anyone dispute this?

    How did you like drive compared to Cordygen?

    I am a BIG fan of MST Cordygen products and haven't had a chance to use drive yet.

    I woke up with morning wood for 1 month straight lol...test boost was there. Always my leanest on it...can't afford it now...
    It's a great product. A big thanks to Rosie for getting me on it...
    Try it bro!!!! Worth every penny (wish for more)
    I ran it seperate from Titanium XL so I could tell a diff. Better all around product especially with Forslean in it...

    I guess you don't think much of Max-OT if you think a 5rm is too low to promote hypertrophy. All the answers to those questions are in the study. Volitional failure just means failure. "Failure was recognized when a complete range of motion for the exercise could not be completed." 1-s concentric, 0-s pause, and a 1-s eccentric for 24 reps would be 48 seconds time under tension, with an average of 43 seconds. There also wasn't any LBM measure during this short term study, but there was in the long term study that's under review for publication.

    Their point is that fast twitch fibers ARE activated by going to failure. Fast twitch fibers aren't just going to be left out of the equation when you're lifting with everything you've got. Also, endurance exercise still increases the number of satellite cells...

    So the stronger muscle is the bigger muscle? Look at Tom Platz vs Dr. Squat. Why is the stronger muscle the smaller muscle? Why is the "High endurance" muscle bigger? Tom Platz often worked out in the 25+ rep range and NOONE had bigger legs. "On numerous occasions, he squatted for 10 minutes straight for more than 100 reps with 225 pounds."
    Why would you think slow twitch fibers don't hypertophy with the correct stimulus? There's a HUGE difference between doing 24 reps and running a marathon. It's blasphemous to equate the two.
    How do you know the researchers weren't trying to prove these results? You cant just look at one or two studies.
    "Henneman's work [11] described the recruitment of motor units as occurring in a progressive fashion from small to large (i.e., the size principle). As opposed to the requirement for high intensity contractions we posited that the total volume of contractions, independent of intensity, would result in full motor unit activation and muscle fibre recruitment and would be of equal or greater importance as intensity to the acute stimulation of muscle protein synthesis. Specifically, the same degree of muscle fibre activation and presumably a similar stimulation of myofibrillar (MYO) protein synthesis, would occur regardless of intensity provided that the exercise was performed until volitional fatigue (failure) in line with observations from occlusion training [8], [9], [10]."
    So yes, they were trying to prove that lifting lighter would still hypertophy the fast twitch fibers as long as you lift to failure. There also isn't only one or two studies on the subject, as you can see by their references.
    I, personally dont train extremely heavy or extremely light but I know if I did 20 reps on all exercises I would deflate like a busted condom.
    I assumed that I would shrink too, but I was in a plateau so I decided to give it a shot anyway. I gained .3lb lbm the first week, and .52lb the second week. This says they both stimulate different anabolic pathways, so I'm going to do this every now and then, and everyone should be doing both.

    Very true with the last part, the only way I got 29.5in legs was squats for 30 min then a very brutal workout heck my quads only respond to high reps and I was lure 21 with 34 in.waist most of my female friends had smaller waist than my quads

    I don't know that high reps induces hypertrophy, but there r studies that show higher reps can increase protein synthesis better than low reps. This could be why your lbm increased. What do u think?

    Increased protein synthesis + increased lean body mass = hypertrophy.
    I'm going to do 3 weeks at 24 reps, 3 at 12, and 3 at 6. If it works well, that'll be my new cycle.

    Hypertrophy is the enlargement of the actual fibers. There is also the increase in number of fibers which is not hypertrophy.

    i prefer to train for Myofibrillar hypertrophy rather than Sarcoplasmic hypertrophy
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    As rochabp was getting at, they're both hypertrophy.
