Have you ever tried or eard of Carb Backloading (CBL) or CarbNite? Its a program that allows you to only eat all your carbs after your workout, and those carbs are mainly simple carbs. It's a type of fatloss program as well. Wnated to know what your take is on it if so.

Tyler - Nope I've never tried that. Closest thing I have tried to that would be LeanGains. I say give it a try for a month and give it a chance to see if it works for your body or not.
Hi Tyler, i have 2 questions i was hoping you could help me with. 1. Im currently carb-cycling for fat loss and was wondering if i should count my post workout shake carbs in my overall carb count? 2. When counting the total number of sets i've done for a given muscle group, should i include dropsets in that count? For example if 4 sets of bench press but i did 2 drop sets, should i count this as 6 total sets for my volume? Thanks in advance!

Tyler - First question, yes count your post workout carbs from your shake in your total overall carb count. Second question, I don't count drop sets in my total volume. I would consider that still 4 sets of bench press.
Hi Tyler, quick connection about taking naps. Im currently trying to trim out and i'm cycling my carbs. Some days when i get home from work, I like to take a nap, roughly 30-60 mins. However, my last meal prior to my nap is usually around 3pm and i would nap at around 6pm. My question is, is it a problem if i sleep through my next meal? I typically eat every 2-3 hours but in this case my meal would be "late" or missed. Is this a problem?

Tyler - No it's not a problem, I wouldn't skip that meal just have it when you wake up from your nap and continue on with your normal meal schedule afterward.
What exercises would you recommend for a more fuller and thicker looking bicep? Also to help prononciate the horse shoe in the triceps? Thanks!

Tyler - Kick your workout off with DB Hammer Curls for bicep thickness. You can do a variety of different hammer styles. Also nothing beats the good ol standing barbell curl. I like to to dips and rope cable pressdowns to target the horse shoe of the tri
Tyler, if you had to pick only 4 foods for the rest of your life, which would they be and why ? (and how about supplements)

Tyler - great question! ok let's see if it was 4 junk foods for the rest of my life it would be, burgers,pizza,fried chicken,cheese cake lol but I think your talking healthy foods. I would pick chicken and steak for protein sources just because I eat them every day now and my body seems to respond well to them and I love the taste. Carb sources would be sweet potatoes and white rice. Supplements : whey, creatine, bcaa, pre workout formula
hey tyler. havent posted in the comment box in forever. been following u for 2 yrs now. ur buffalo chicken tenders recipe is awesome and thanks im now hooked on that popcorn seasoning...i put it on rice, eggs, veggies. hope all is great!

Tyler - Great to hear!
Hey Tyler... I've been taking supplements for a while now, including but not limited too BCAA, glutamine, karboiyn, fish oil capsules, pre-workout powders with beta-alanine, creatine and such, etc.... i havent ever really cycled off of anything for longer then a week and it doesn happen very often. Are there any supplements you know of that i really should be cycling off of more frequently? Or should i just stop everything for a solid 1-2 months and come back on to it?

Tyler - I come off of everything when I'm taking a break for 4 weeks minimum
Tyler,what are your thoughts on carb backloading/inter fasting? I knew that you have tried it before. Is that what Gregg Plitt does? Reading things on him,thats what it sounds like to me,him only eating a huge meal once a day.
18 February 2013
Tyler - Not sure what Greg does. I've tried LeanGains which is inter fasting and I didn't like it. My thoughts are give it a try and see if you like it. Try it out for a minimum of 4 weeks and see how your body responds.
Hey Ty, what do you suggest for upper chest development? My Chest has responded really well to FLAT bench press and is well developed, however i feel like i have a dip in my upper inner chest. I want to bring it out to balance the rest of my chest as wel as make it look more cut (look good in a V-Neck shirt cut) up there. My mid and lower chest have it. So far i've been trying DB incline bench superset with DB incline flys.

Tyler - I would ALWAYS start your workouts off with an incline movement. Any type of incline movement targets that upper chest. Pick one that you feel that area working the most.
