I appreciate all the positive comments from all the wonderful t-mag readers! It warms my heart during this holiday season (said with a big, warm grin
Ok, ok since you asked…First, I am currently spending MUCH time working my PhD dissertation looking at resistance training and skeletal muscle ATP loss and regeneration. It is fascinating basic research but down the line (within a year or so) I will be testing some old and some new compounds for their abilities to regenerate skeletal muscle ATP quickly or to increase resting levels of ATP. This is a HUGE thing since if we can do both more effectively, not only weight trainiers, but every anaerobic athlete will benefit tremendously. I may unveil some of my thoughts on this at the No Holds Barred Seminar in Orlando in Feb but as far as the new compounds, its far too early to mention them. Since Im very research oriented, I have to wait for data before I unleash my excitement.
Secondly, here is the big new Biotest project…I am working on testing a new post-workout recovery drink Ive developed…I know, I know, it doesnt sound all that exciting…YET…but the ingredients are designed to do 3 things…1) Maximize post workout glycogen resynthesis 2) Promote complete recovery of protein synthesis that is lost during training 3) Inhibit the large increase in protein breakdown associated with the post-workout period. Now this has applications for EVERYONE who trains, no matter the modality. The supplement industry needs a quality post-workout formula as there is currently none that use all the research at our disposal to promote complete training recovery. Hopefully this product will be done by the seminar (but I cant promise anything).
Boy are these 2 projects exciting!
As far as a carb roundtable, Im not sure how to handle it. There are so many darn ideas about carbs and so many angles to take. I still have to think more about this. Articles that MAY be forthcoming after the holiday include:
An article about my new eating plan called "DONT DIET" ; An article on insulin management and glucose tolerance / insulin sensitivity testing ; An article on low carb diets in general ; and maybe a carb roundtable bringing together some researchers that work with endurance and strength athletes.
Feedback guys? What would you like most to read about? Maybe your ideas could spark some other stuff (as if I dont have enough already!).
About Goatein, never heard of it...Why not just stick with a proven brand of whey or a proven MRP. Im not sure if I like goats all that much to buy their milk. Im more a fan of cows cause they give us their milk, their meat, and their implants (Fina) :-)
