Remember its a rule of thumb NOT a fact. Maintaining a positive nitrogen balance can be acheived without a plethora of protein. A majority of the guys I've competed with do not jack there protein intake up that high for even pre-contest.
Conversely, it can't hurt you (unless you have kidney problems) eating that much protein. It's just a case of diminishing returns.
The people who advocate eating this much protein usually work for a sports nutrition company that pushes protein to increase repeat business. The science just isn't there to back it up plain & simple.
What it will do is cause you to stay on the toilet longer...

Correct me if i'm wrong but doesn't excess protein just turn to fat. I have a feeling i'm soon to be bashed on that but that's why i was told in a pt class i took. I'm eating just over 1.25 grams per pound and making solid gains.

touche. Come to think of it my teacher was really just against eating a lot of protein actually said this as sarcasm, "oh yeah athletes need more protein to build more muscle" hinting we dont need more protein than anybody else to build muscle and constantly bashing on buddies in my class that take in a lot of protein.
What's the deal with fat grams. I hear it's 8 calories per gram then 9 calories per gram. What's the deal, it was originally 9 calories per gram corrrect?

Don't get so anal. If what your using works for you...GREAT. I am more than happy for ya bud. But this is what works for me and tons of other guys that I train so I am giving my opinion.

Do some flyes before flat bench. Everybody on chest day hurries to do flat bench first...but use this iso/compound combo and it might help a bit

There is a lot of info in the books that is bullsh!t. Just read some FDA stuff. I am taking nothing away from you or what you know. Just telling you what has proven itself time and time again for me and many others.
