I've never been seriously injured. I'm just lazy.
post #48707 of 57265
Unless you count my lost filling and some intermittent minor back pain, I'm holding up pretty well. And I'm an old man by RHET standards.

I've been injury free this year and I'm so happy about it. Went through a rough patch over the last three or so years with a seemingly steady stream of minor issues that sidelined me from time to time.

The new guy could have been scott mendelson for all anyone here knew at the time, and in any case as we have discussed previously results are not a good measure of knowledge (who was genetics?)

Yes his advice was shitty but the responses were so absurdly condescending and smug. I guess thats what happens when people on internet forums suck your dick relentlessly

For those of you who are interested in research:

 

30 min video with Stuart Phillips from Oxford Uni (one of the most influental researchers in the field), where he talks about the maximization of protein synthesis through exercise and diet, and explains everything from the comparison between different proteins in order to maximize protein synthesis, to how the weights you lift (going heavy) does not really matter for muscle growth:

- age and an inactive lifestyle outside of training potentially reduces the MPS spikes from training and eating protein.

 

- a change to a more inactive lifestyle, for instance that you walk less daily, results in increased muscle loss/less muscle growth. Here, inactivity is also meant in the very short time-frame, say laying on your couch watching a movie.

 

- an inactive lifestyle reduces insulin sensitivity (your ability to handle carbs without storing them as body fat).

 

- additional protein beyond 40g/16.8g eaa's in a single meal does not spike MPS further (although it does reduce MPB). 

 

- whey protein gives a faster and higher spike in MPS than casein and soy protein, both after training and at rest. Casein has a slower drop off rate in MPS.

 

- MPS can be stimulated maximally for 4 hours, and will drop down to baseline levels within 24-48 hours. Imo, this speaks for that you can training the muscle again after that point to stimulate the MPS again.

 

- the largest changes in hypertrophy stimulus in seen between the intensity ranges from 60%-70% of 1RM. That is, a single rep at 60% of 1RM provides approx 25% of max stimulus while a single rep at 70% provides roughly 80-90% of max hypertrophy stimulus that you can get from only doing one rep. The increase is much smaller between 70-80% of 1RM, where the the hypertrophy response increase from around 85% to almost 100%. So, isolating the hypertrophy response of each rep, it appears you don't grow more by going heavier than 85%. And everyone know you can do more volume with 60-70% than 80-90% or going for a max 1RM. 

 

- very low intensity training can work just as well for hypertrophy as high intensity, if the muscular fatigue is high enough. In the study cited, occlusion training (restricted blood flow) is used to accomplish this local fatigue. 30% of 1RM taken to failure resulted in as much MPS as 90% of 1RM for 5 reps, both 4 hours and 24 hours post-exercise.

RHET I got prescribed sodium valproate, which is a mood stabiliser/ anti convulsant today for dat der bipolar type 2. Should I take it? Sounds kind of shit. Don't think I will.

What is the deal with CNS fatigue

I could not bench 225 for like 3 reps today, but I got crazy volume on other push movements (CGDBBP, weighted dips, tricep pushdowns) in the ~10 rep range no problem

Like I dont feel tired at all and can bang out high reps, but my back is fried from heavy lower body movements and I just cannot push heavy at all

I am going to go full bro for a few weeks, but Im wondering if there is any non bro science around being able to do a ton of low intensity stuff but be fried on high intensity stuff
post #48720 of 57265

I did 5 movements today. Two for bi, two for tri, and quick abs.

 


Then I went out to a swanky ass bar with coworkers and one of the surgeons paid the 1k+ tab.

Fuckin' yes!
