  1. Article Ideas/Topics Wanted


    What would you guys like to read about? I'll post more on the subjects that I see a particularly common interest in, and I'll write full-blown articles on topics that I also have a personal interested in. Brainstorm away, I'm open to anything from controversies, noncontroversies, dead horses that refuse to go quietly, all the way to live ones begging to be beaten down. No idea is a bad one.

    Thanks.


  2. The main thing I would like to read more about is carb cycling for bulking and cutting.

  3. The myth of meal frequency....or is it?

    Overcoming insulin resistance, (in general), and it effects on diets to grow LBM and diets to cut BF.
    We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.

    Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

    I have the fire, I have the force, I have the power to make my evil take it's course.

    Thats the first Ive ever heard of any discrepency in that, would love to hear more.


    Also since you said you dont mind beating dead horse subjects I still wonder about all the arguing between people who would rather die than eat carbs and fats in the same meal and the ones who dont think twice about it.. (is there any truth/ benefits to minding p/c/f together in an attempt to eleiminate a chance of fat gain?)

  10. O and during w/o nutrition, is there a leading canidate (water/ BCAA, Protein?)

  11. Covering too much protein intake.

  12. Post work-out carbs--- What kind, and how much is enough/too much.

    I'll second the BCAA stuff... How much (if any) is usefull.

  13. carboyhdrate timing, i.e. only carbs around workout, or morning.

    pre workout nutrition breakdown/timing.

  14. Im actually writing an article for my class on EAA/BCAA supplementation ill post it when its done.

  15. oh and one more...

    can adequate calories give you enough energy/recovery ability to hit the gym alot. (2x a day every other day, or everyday doing push/pull with varying exercises)

    might be more of a training question but owell

  16. Great topics. I will definitely tackle & wrestle with these. And whoever wants to post your own articles & whatnot, go for it, I think it's great to see different angles on things. As with everything, expect some dissent from me when I can't hold back on stuff I disagree with, & I'll expect the same. Looking forward to the discussions. Keep the ideas coming..

    Finally. I don't know how many people are missing the boat by not incorporating BCAA's into their training. BCAA's is where its at.

  20. I dont' know how to phrase the topic but...an article on how much money/time people waste on buying every supplement out there and how useless most supps are when they should be concentrating on a perfect diet/training instead of the magic pills

    Where can I purchase these 'magic pills' you speak of

  22. You can PM me and I have some "super beans" for sale - they will get you jacked, lean as can be, huge as your imagination can take you - ohh and dont' forget you will get 352.5% greater levels of every hormone in your body - all for $44.95 but you must be on a balanced diet/exercise program

    do you accept paypal or should i just send cash? will i need to run post cycle therapy?

  24. please send money order to my PO box in zimbabwean - PM for Po address

  25. hmmm yesh yesh.

    magic beans make people instantly disappear from the gym floor.

    I remember years ago I had such bad gas I literally cleared out the weight room. It was classic.

  26. Looking over this thread, there's a lot of interest in timing of nutrients. Also, BCAA was mentioned about 5x. I think my 1st writeup will be on BCAA, and is it okay if there's no pics of barely dressed women after each paragraph? I don't wanna cause any uproar.

    What kind of board do you think this is? That is completely unacceptable unless you get a note from the members.

  28. Frankly I still would like the whole fasted/low intensity cardio vs. high intensity cardio to be tackled once and for all... I know from what I read from Alan he's a guru of sorts, but doesn't believe in low intensity cardio, whereas I've never seen Bobo proven wrong about exercise/training, and he favors low intensity. Let the battle begin *ding ding ding*

    I don't want anyone to be mislead into thinking I'm against low intensity steady state (LISS) cardio. I simply don't agree that one is blanketly superior to the other, since they both have their pro's & con's, and they both have their potential place in a program. The major advantage of HIIT is the economy of time spent. The major advantage of LISS is the reduction of injury risk associated with higher velocity work. I see this as a personal preference/tolerance thing specific to the individual, not an absolute either-or issue.

    I thought you recommended lots of protein when bulking?

    I like it low.


    Alan tends to speak in terms of covering all bases and a wider crowd unless otherwise stated. I tend to speak on a more limited crowd, therefore when discussing certain topics you have to take the situation and goal into question.

    Preference of cardio has everything to do with you current resistance training program. Since most of my clients tend to workout 5x/week it makes little sense for me to tell them to perform HIIT another 4x/week.

    How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

  33. If he took my "magic Beans" I bet 800% farther than he could without

    That would require a triple-blind (that's when you blind the statistician as well as the investigators & subjects) placebo-controlled multicenter intervention trial, preferably replicated 5x.

  35. Only thing Im interested in would be about non-responders Only "oral" products I respond to are food and stims so I have a personal interest in this
  36. Thumbs up

    I would love to hear more on this subject. Also meal frequency effects while bulking Vs. cutting.!!!!

  37. I vote for carb cycling.

  38. theres an ongoing thread about diet sodas going on right now. i would love to hear an experts opinion as to weather any artificial sweeteners are detrimental to your physique and if they impact insulin in any way. i have absolutely no interest as to weather or not they are safe for my health. im stubborn like that

    this has probably been covered before so illrun a search to try to dig up some info brought up here in the past. alan, i would appreciate it if you could contribute to the above mentioned thread.

  39. Quote Originally Posted by Moyer

    im sure the reasoning behind too much protein during bulking has to do with the increased amount of cals, especially in the form of carbs and fats, sparing protein so not as much is required as one may think. protein potentially has the fate to convert to glucose or fats via the liver, but a greater portion of the amino acids will do what they are intended (muscle building) in a surplus because this conversion isnt as necessary with the presence of more carbs/fats included in your diet.

    that is my speculation, but i am a finance major

    Apparently there's no significant effect of aspartame on insulin:
    ______________________________ _______

    Am J Clin Nutr. 1989 Mar;49(3):427-32.
    Aspartame and its constituent amino acids: effects on prolactin, cortisol, growth hormone, insulin, and glucose in normal humans.

    Carlson HE, Shah JH.
    Medical and Research Services, Northport and Harry S Truman Memorial VA Hospitals, NY 11768.

    Because large doses of phenylalanine stimulate prolactin secretion in man, we studied the acute effects of oral doses of aspartame (0.534 g, equivalent to the amount of aspartame in approximately 1 L beverage), aspartic acid (0.242 g), and phenylalanine (0.3 and 1.0 g) on serum prolactin and other hormones in normal humans. Prolactin was not stimulated by any of the aspartame meals, aspartic acid, or 0.3 g phenylalanine; a small rise in serum prolactin, similar to that produced by a high-protein mixed meal, followed ingestion of 1.0 g phenylalanine. Serum growth hormone showed no statistically significant changes in response to any of the experimental meals whereas cortisol and insulin fell slightly and glucose rose slightly during each of the meals. We conclude that these doses of aspartame do not alter secretion of prolactin, cortisol, growth hormone, or insulin in normal individuals.
    ______________________________ _________

    Negative impact of aspartame on bodycomp is highly unlikely. Health is another story. There is no data I could find on the direct measurement of insulinogenesis via sucralose, but it's probably negligible.
