Weekly Post #2: Maximizing muscle protein synthesis and sub-maximal training

Muscle protein synthesis consists of the uptake of protein, the growth phase, and the rebuilding phase in muscle cells. To get as muscular and as strong as possible you want to maximize your muscle protein synthesis, meaning during the week you want as many peaks of muscle protein synthesis as possible.

(This may differ for people on hormona) Four hours after your workout, muscle protein synthesis is elevated by 50%. Twenty-four hours post-workout muscle protein synthesis is elevated by 109%.* But, after thirty-six hours muscle protein synthesis is only 14% above base and shortly thereafter it goes to baseline. If you only train a muscle group once a week you are wasting a lot of potential time of elevated muscle protein synthesis.

This is where sub-maximal training comes in. You want to work the muscle group frequently but not to the point of exhaustion. By doing this your muscle and nervous system learns the movement more efficiently and your performance increases due to the frequent stimulus.

Yes on hormones we have better protein synthesis than the average. Also BCAAs increase your protein synthesis.

Here is a good interview with Lyle McDonald on keeping fat off after you diet.

I killed chest, shoulders, and tris in the gym today. With the fat loss I am seeing more definition and that is a great motivator for me.

Weekly article #3 part 1

Summary of article from Physiqonomics

Carbs are seldom – if ever – directly stored as body fat, while dietary fat is.

Jose Antonio has shown a similar thing occurs with protein. He had participants consume 800 calories of protein over their maintenance needs and found, “consuming a hypercaloric high protein diet does not result in an increase in body fat”.* 15

– TEF: The thermic effect of food is how much energy the body uses digesting and storing the food you eat. Each macronutrient has a different thermic effect .

*** Carbs: 5-10%

*** Protein: 20-30%

*** Fat: 0-3%

Protein has the highest thermic effect of all three macronutrients and this is one reason why when people are overfed protein they don’t gain exactly the predicted amount of weight – a lot of the calories are lost to heat during digestion.

For example, eating 200 calories of protein means you’ve lost 60 calories to TEF; so your body only has 140 calories available of the 200 you consumed. Compared to eating 200 calories from fats or carbs. The TEF of carbs will leave your body with a useable 180 calories, and 194 calories from fats.

This is why you can eat two meals of an equivalent caloric amount, but depending on the macronutrient composition of the meals, the number of calories left for use (and storage) by the body after digestion can vary greatly.

While the TEF of the individual macronutrients differs, for a mixed meal – one that contains proteins, carbs, and fats – the thermic effect of food is around 10%

With all of that said are calories still of the highest importance? Yes. The law of thermodynamics may not be the most efficient process when applied to the human body – for the plethora of reasons I just noted – but it still applies. And calorie balance counts.

Calorie Increases = Body Weight Increases

Portion Size Increase -> More Calories Consumed -> Weight Gain

You can lose weight eating anything as long as you’re in a calorie deficit.

However, a calorie may be a calorie, but food is not just food.

Sure, you can lose fat by controlling calories and eating Twinkies, McDonald’s, or ice cream. But a good diet is so much more than changing your body composition – it should also promote healthful eating, for a number of reasons

Vitamins, Minerals, and Fiber, Satiety and long term maintenance

Disease prevention: While someone’s propensity to contract a disease or fall ill is multifactorial, a person’s diet does play a key role. In one study, titled Healthy Living Is the Best Revenge, researchers wanted to identify the healthy lifestyle factors that could prevent chronic diseases. Amongst the factors – never smoking, having a body mass index lower than 30, performing 3.5 or more hours per week of physical activity – the researchers also noted, “adhering to healthy dietary principles (high intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain bread and low meat consumption) can have a strong impact on the prevention of chronic diseases.”*

Yea agree, should have it's own thread.

Pretty much confirms what I've always seen with my own results and experiments. When I keep carbs lower and fats higher I store fat, my muscles deflate aka I lose that "pumped rounded muscle" look, and I lose strength in the gym.

High protein, high carb, very low fat has always done me well.

Weekly article #3 part 2

Summary of article from Physiqonomics

There’s a popular idea perpetuated in the mainstream media that people gain fat because of a hormonal imbalance and not because of a calorie imbalance.

The problem with this idea is they have it backwards. Do hormones impact body composition? Of course they do, and anyone who says otherwise doesn’t know what the hell they’re talking about. However, hormones are influenced by calorie intake and not vice versa.

If you eat fewer calories than your body requires (a calorie deficit) or more than your body requires (a calorie surplus) hormones like leptin, cortisol, insulin, thyroid, testosterone are all affected to some degree.

Insulin and leptin are considered ‘master hormones’, meaning they tend to influence a bunch of other stuff, and guess what they respond to? Yep. Calorie intake

If you eat in a calorie deficit: leptin and thyroid hormone drops. This, in turn, means you expend fewer calories and are hungrier. Extended periods of low calorie dieting can decrease testosterone levels and increase cortisol, leading to muscle loss and lowered libido. All of this in an attempt to stop you from ostensibly starving to death

Conversely, if you eat in a calorie surplus: leptin levels increase, T3 returns back to baseline, hunger decreases — energy levels increase, you start moving more and expending more energy – testosterone increases, and cortisol drops

On testosterone decrease in a deficit: this depends on your levels of body fat. Someone who is overweight will see increases in testosterone levels when they lose fat, compared with someone dieting down to extremely low levels of body fat for a competition. Similarly, insulin sensitivity increases with fat loss and decreases with fat gain. Again, this is predicated on energy (im)balance.

We’re living in an ‘eat more and keep eating’ environment. In this obesogenic environment, high-calorie food is everywhere, easy to access, and when it isn’t, you can be sure there’s an advert reminding you.

These hyper-palatable foods are easy to overeat while concomitantly providing a large number of calories. And as long as you reside in this environment, which isn’t going anywhere, your chances of gaining fat or having trouble losing fat will remain. You can’t rely on your “intuition”, or eat according to your natural hunger and satiety cues – not at the start, anyway – because the environment doesn’t allow for that.

Of course, for many of us, we are on extraneous testosterone and cytomil so we do not have to worry about some aspects of the hormonal imbalances.

Even though tbol doesn't aromatize it seems to have a direct effect on the estrogen receptor. Look up tbol gyno, it's not common but it's not unheard of either. Whereas anavar does not aromatize or have any direct effect on the estrogen receptor.

My thoughts on the packaging: it is pretty stealthy and tamperproof. If anyone did anything to the package it would be easy to tell. There was not much cushoning but everything arrived in perfect condition. The packages and vials look very professional and aesthetically pleasing.

I will do my first pin later tonight.

From here on out avid is a changed man. Expect a much more alpha vibe off this guy, gentlemen!

Hey why so high on the Tren? Is it ace or e? I would think 3-400mg is plenty

It is ace. The main reason it is so high is because I am curious how my sides will be with the tren at that level with my test being so low. The second reason is my kcal was just dropped to 1800kcal/day but I am keeping my protein high. I'm betting this combo will let me build some quality muscle while losing a lot of body fat fast.

So far I have pinned my biceps, quads, teardrops, and delts. No pip and very smooth each time. Like I said before, I can use a 30g syringe and it only takes me around 15sec per cc.

I've decided to switch up my workout a bit. I'll do hypertrophy chest/shoulders/tris on Monday, power chest/shoulders/tris on Wednesday, and strength chest/shoulders/tris on Friday. I'll do hypertrophy legs on Tuesday and strength legs on Saturday. I'll do hypertrophy back/bis on Thursday and strength back/bis on Sunday.

Good, very good. I was a little worried about mental sides since this is the biggest cycle Ive ever done (1.75g/week). I think it was the prami that messed me up a while ago when I went high deca. So far I have not experienced any sides, mental or physical other than I have a little acne outbreak which has me a little perplexed.
Something is a little off on my hormones, but the only ancillary I've taken so far is .25mg adex e3d. Though I'm only taking in 200mg test/week so I would not think I have high estrogen. It's typically elevated estrogen combined with elevated progesterone that causes acne right? I'll probably start up some caber, maybe .25mg e3d?

I am going to get labs in a few weeks and that will give me a clearer picture of what's going on.

Weekly Article #4



Periodization Training

Periodization is a way to train where you manipulate training volume, intensity, frequency and overload to maximize performance. The idea behind it is if you are static your training will stop progressing unless you have a plan for progressive overload. Studies show that periodization programs are superior to non-periodized program for strength and power outcomes. Albeit, there is no greater benefit of one over the other in non-trained individuals, for those untrained individuals any program will work well.

Daily Undulating Periodization (DUP)

Daily – Pretty self-explanatory

Undulating – This refers to the fact the weight/intensity/load changes on a session by session basis

Periodization – The program is set up in such a way that it is progressive, and has periods of light, moderate and heavy work

DUP is a form of non-linear periodisation in which your training variables (volume and intensity) change on a per-session basis. It incorporates each training focus (hypertrophy, strength and power) into each training block – usually either on a weekly or a daily basis. With DUP, rather than changing your volume/intensity/rep ranges every few weeks, you change them every day you train.*Do not train to failure on this program, it will impede training volume and reduce muscle growth. If you do, only do it on the last set of exercise. This means if you max at a certain weight is 10, only go to 8.

*

Example of a DUP program:

Monday is Hypertrophy day for bench, squat, and good mornings

Wednesday is Power day for bench, squat and deadlifts

Friday is Strength day for bench, squat and good mornings.

Hypertrophy 10-15 reps @ 75%

Strength 1-5 reps @85%

Power 1-5 reps @ 85% but done with speed/explosiveness********

*

What to consider when planning a DUP program:

1) Decide how flexible you should be****

Rep ranges, set ranges, exercise selection, corevs. Accessory exercises, number of sessions per week

2) Give yourself a basic DUP Setup

Main lifts and accessory lifts

3) Come up with a way of choosing workouts

Simple- pick the workout that you want to do that day, no scale, no objectivity, just choosing what you want to do

Intermediate- Rating your perceived recovery on a scale of 1-10, as per the study, and choosing workouts accordingly (lower energy = lighter weights or a “power” day).

Advanced- Assess bar speed at a certain %1RM at the beginning of a training session and basing the session on that. Faster bar speed = more power = hit a heavier session that day.

Expert- Using Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data to assess recovery, and choosing a session accordingly.

I am destroying my legs at the gym right now. In hindsight I probably should not have pinned my calf this morning. I never did it before because I heard it hurts a lot. I figured since this gear is so smooth it would be good gear to test out my virgin calf muscle. So far it feels fine.

I already see some good changes in my body since starting this cycle. I think I'll post a pic every 4 weeks or so to document my progress. Next pics coming up around Sept. 17th.

I'm having a pretty good evening training session. I normally lift in the morning but not this week. My stress just melts away when I am hammering the iron. It is truly iron therapy, I think I am going to sleep good tonight.

On the upswing. I am responding well to this low test high tren. Personal life is stabilising. Work is a little stressful, but the iron therapy is helping with that.

Weekly Article # 5
Blood Flow Restriction Training (kaatsu training, cuffs to limbs)
In blood flow restriction training you do as the name suggests, restrict the blood flowing into the muscles. By doing this the blood in your muscles pools which makes the muscle swell. This in turn makes the muscle work harder than it normally would allowing you to train with low loads but giving you the same benefit as training with heavy loads.
You are probably wondering, why would I do this, why would I buy a cuff to create the same results as lifting heavy? Well my young Padawan there are times where you do not want to train heavy such as when you are injured. It allows you to achieve optimal hypertrophy while not overstressing your injury. Not only this but the simple act of blood flow restriction has been shown to help recovery from tendon and ligament surgery and it helps reduce muscle loss from inactivity.
To do blood flow restriction training you need a kaatsu band or a cuff of some sort to restrict the blood to your appendage. You do not want to go past 30% of your max but you do want to do high rep work.

Alright, I started Aug. 17th and it's Sept. 3rd. It's the 17th day since I started and I can already see some changes. I am excited to see what I look like at the 12 week mark.

I've been on a pretty decent calorie restriction. I need to get my protein higher though.

I just hit a PR on incline bench, 405lbs. I am surprised considering I am on a pretty intense calorie deficit.
