I go to a 5:30am to 6:30am boot camp 2-4 days a week... I fast before and have been waiting an hour or so to eat my normal daily breakfast (3 scrambled eggs in pastured organic butter and 2 pieces of bacon). On a hard day my muscles can be sore... (more)

At 6 feet and 160 pounds, I think you need to readjust your goals. If I were you I would drop the boot camp to 1 or 2 days a week, and buy a copy of Jim Wendler's 5/3/1. Get on a strength based resistance training program, start eating some more... (more)

Massively carb loading after a workout is unnecessary. Some carbs? Meh, maybe as long as its with some protein. If you go to bodybuilding.com's forums you'll see in the stickies that meal timing plays a minimal amount in actual muscle growth. I'd... (more)

Drastic weight gain like that is water retention. When you go without carbs (carboHYDRATE) your body sheds water weight, and after an extended amount of time, like 10 weeks, going off the diet makes you retain water like crazy. Since you are... (more)

Because you're right-handed, it is likely that your right side is more efficient at movements, so your left side requires more muscle to be equally efficient at those movements.

No. As long as you consume adequate protein, no muscle loss will occur. Many, in fact, gain muscle with no added exercise. Gluconeogenesis will supply all the glucose you will ever need. That's why carbs are considered nonessential nutrients.... (more)

I wouldn't consider 1.25 grams of protein/ lb a high protein diet. If you're looking to gain weight you're probably going to have to introduce more than 40-80 grams of carbs/day though.
