If by "knowledge" you mean studies or whatever, there are plenty on PubMed, but that's besides the point (you can find studies to prove just about anything).
There is also evidence that limiting carbs to the morning is a good weight loss strategy for the general population (but that is only for weight loss, not necessarily fat loss) and that the opposite is true for recreational athletes and people that train (limit carbs to the last meals of the day).
And there is a ton of studies that cover that fat burning properties found in many healthy fats (CLA's etc). 
As has been said, calorie deficit/surplus is the most important factor for weight loss/gain, macro's are largely a personal bias (how each macro effects you and what makes you feel the best personally in terms of energy and mood and whatnot).

My main point is - fat is not bad. Fat is very good.
My second point is - there is more than one way to do things.

When I want to lose fat I prefer to increase activity rather than lower cals anyway.

Rich Piana is prob bigger, stronger and leaner then you.
post #47042 of 57265

Yes, he definitely is. That is not my sole reason for listening to people. He is also on a shit ton of drugs that I am not on. You mentioned Rich, not me.

 

Again, i'll read shit an make my own conclusions OR listen to people who use scientific based approaches to exercise and actually use those conclusions to prove that it is applicable. And yeah I know somebody like Layne probably uses but the fact is he researches shit, applies it, and it works. Lyle researches shit, applies it, and nothing happens. Plus he's a bit of a cunt.

post #47043 of 57265
Personally a bit dubious of layne nortons nattyness. Not like getting drug tested once at competition is going to stop anyone from going on.


edit: never mind didnt see you wrote that already
post #47044 of 57265

Exactly, I feel you have to be pretty dumb to actually fail a drug test in most sports.

 

But yeah, I obv don't like Lyle and don't trust his thoughts/opinions on much of anything.

If you "know" how to get big and lean, but you aren't either of those things, why would I listen? What proof is there that what you're saying is going to work if it hasn't worked for yourself?
If I think somebody has something to offer then of course I will be all ears, I don't think Lyle has anything to offer me.
And honestly I don't think Lyle is all that smart to begin with.
Here is a highly relevant article written by someone bigger and stronger than you.

Tossing new knowledge because you have some weird grudge with somebody seems pretty idiotic to me. Obv you have to take everything with a grain of salt and not everything works for everybody... but writing somebody off the jump because you "dont like them".... lol. Good luck
post #47046 of 57265

Dude, there's more to it than me not liking him. I already said why I have no interest in listening to him. Let's forget about it.

Its just that this

"I'm only going to take advice on diet and excercise from people who are bigger, stronger and leaner than me."

was so cretinous a statement that I cringed and instantly disregarded everything else you had to say, and I dont even know how big or strong or ripped you might be


Genetics Are the most important thing in all physical endeavours, and drugs are second. Only 15 year olds who just started bench pressing fail to understand that


Also, Fuji please get the mods to delete the post with your name in it or some future employer will find it and about your steroid use . One of the disadvantages of an unusual name

I think Knucks posted the name because it sounded like a fake name. Don't think he would purposely do that.

Then you misinterpreted my statement (probably my fault). To clarify - I'm more likely to listen to people with a blend of both physical and mental talents than people who only possess one.

And I never even broached the role of genetics - There is no doubting the genetics are the most important factor and I would never say otherwise.

Actually, if anything, what I said about there being multiple ways to achieve something and basing macros on how you personally feel and how each effects you on an individual basis would line up directly with the fact that genetics are the foundation for everything.

post #47050 of 57265

I honestly don't know about macros etc, but I know from taking biochem that the body is pretty damn good at making just about anything from anything. Where macros come in and help is by ensuring that your body thinks that you have enough of everything to not go down those pathways.

My gym sessions were getting too long so I am going to try a 6 day split. Just pop in, do 1-2 compound movements and superset 2 sets of accessories. Today will be my longest day, hoping to be there and back in under an hour. Will be interesting to mix in cycling with that, but with monthly deloads I think I'll be able to handle it.

 

So only 3-4 movements... in an hour? Wowza. I guess it can take a while to do big compounds like squats and deads with the plates and loading everything up etc, but it'll take you 40ish mins to do 1 or 2 of them?

Good idea, just reported it.
post #47052 of 57265

Eason quoted it too I think, so either have that one deleted or ask him to edit it.

Its not that far fetched... my heavy bench day is 5x4 with 4 minute rests. I have to warm up, so I will do 15 reps with just the bar, then 5x135, 3x185, 1-2x205 and then get to work. I take like a minute or so between warm up reps, and each working set takes about a minute or two to get positioned and do the lifts. So warm up takes like 5-10 minutes, and then each set with rest time takes about 5-6 minutes give or take. Even taking off the rest time for the last set, that's still ~30-35 minutes easy. So today I'm doing 5x4, and then a super set of tricep pushdowns and lateral raises. I will see how long it takes but I'm thinking it will be at least 45 minutes.
