I'd like some more info about the fat tissue sensitivity part. I was always under the impression that skeletal muscle would be the preferred storage compartment for fasted glucose.

So its not necessarily a "muscular contraction" induced trans location. The rep-scheme and energy pathway utilized dictates it... It's more of a "this cell is depleted of glycogen and I need more" trans location
So the high-er repetition glycogen depleting workouts would facilitate the most insulin sensitive environment, yes?

I think it's only an excessive amount that will cause the problem with signaling pathway. Circulating triglycerides causes a host of different problems one of which is leptin resistance in the brain

To the OP, assuming you have gotten your diet in check and gotten to an adequate cal intake, I would try AX's Lean Fx if you want to try and lower cortisol levels. I have used Rhodiola, I take it for the calming effects, but like others have said, it doesnt do anything to lower cortisol levels

I am feeling great I've been eating very well and increased quality calories.. Feel like a million bucks honestly. Added in HMB to the rhodiola as well. Feeling and looking very great.
Possible that erase could have been lowering my cort too much? I am not sure if it works on that at all or just estrogen. I stopped using it about 5 days ago and have actually leaned out and dropped water..... I was using 3 caps a day for 8 weeks.

For your goals, cortisol control isn't necessarily a bad idea. It's not healthy, but people sacrifice a little health to compete in bodybuilding competitions anyway.

Im not a bodybuilder any more tho, Im a Highland Games Heavy Events Athlete, so basically a cross between Strongman/ Throwing Decathlete

Serving Size: 1 Vcap® Servings Per Container: 60 Rhodiola ( Rhodiola rosea ) Extract (Root) (Standardized to min. 3% Total Rosavins and min. 1% Salidrosides) 500 mg * * Percent Daily Values are based on 2,000 calorie diet.
Is that too high a dose for chronic administration?
I'm currently using
One cap twice a day.
But for economic purposes I want to order some rhodiola on a Labor Day sale... Thx
