    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.

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

    Here's another one. People consume WAY to much protein while bulking.

    Post workout. Yes, insulin is a bit overrated but that doesn't mean you eliminate it!!!

    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?)

    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

    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..

    * How to Bulk with HPB (avoiding red meat, etc)
    * How to Bulk without getting a beer belly
    * How to Bulk while keeping fat gain at a minimum
    * Foods vs. Supplements
    * Why supplement with Aminos when I already drink protein?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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:

    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.
