    Bryan, regarding fish oil

    Studies have shown that when inhibiting PGF2a elevations following exercise with NSAIDs, increases in protein synthesis are blocked as well. Since diets high in omega-3 decrease PGF2a production, does supplementing with fish oil also negatively affect protein synthesis?

    Given that some antioxidants may hinder hypertrophy by reducing oxadative stress, do you think they should be avoided immediately before and/or after workouts?

    'Eating for Size''article does not give amounts of

    Just some food for thought: This study suggests that vitamin C supplementation after an injury increases tissue damage and oxidative stress, which, if I'm not mistaken, could be benifitial for hypertrophy.

    Primer and Driver when doing a am/pm routine

    I'm considering splitting my routine by training twice per day, 3 times per week. I will do 10-12 sets per training session (20-24 sets per day). If I take one serving of Primer before and one serving of Driver after each training session, it would give me a wopping 80 g of protein. At 80 kg, my...

    33g sugar?

    Throw in a serving of Primer or Driver (or any other protein powder for that matter), and you'll have a great pre/post workout shake.

    4-ad-ec: thoughts on gray area supplements

    Bryan, in reference to the hair loss issue: what is more likley to happen when you end the cycle, that the hair loss stops or continues? Any chance that it will grow back? After all, test level goes back to normal once HTPA recovery is over, right? Are there any permanent side effects associated...

    In my opinion both BIZ and Steve are right. There seem to be support to taking creatine before as well as after training. So take 1/2 before and 1/2 after to get the best of both worlds.

    Ionized WPI

    Ion-exchange whey has a higher ratio of beta lactoglobulin, which is often associated with gastric upset, than filtered whey. Between ion-exchange and filtered whey, I'd go with filtered.

    Bryan, Primer and ephedrine

    Bryan, in one of your posts, you mention that insulin counter acts the effect of ephedrine as a dietary supplement. Since I only use ephedrine as a pre-workout simulant, I was wondering if insulin inhibits its stimulatory effect as well? Once a week, I take 50 mg ephedrine and 250 mg caffeine 20...

    cla vs eca stack?

    Bryan, if you use ephedrine as a pre workout stimulant, does insulin counter act its stimulatory effect? Once a week, I take 50 mg ephedrine and 250 mg caffeine 20 min before I hit the gym to get wired up, and then a shake with 1 serv of Primer and 37 g glucose polymeres immediately before I...
