If you could only choose one of the supplements you're currently taking, which one would you recommend? EVP?

Tyler - If I could only take one it would be Cell K.E.M. just because it has everything you need for proper recovery and muscle growth.

Hey Tyler, I'm a huge fan of your blog and you inspire me to achieve any fitness goals I want. That said, I started body building since 2009 when I was 18. My stats back then were 5'8 and 140lbs. Now in 2011, I'm 5'10 and 200lbs. My arms have grown to 17 inches when not pumped. They seem to be on a growing stump. I've tried superset, negatives, drop sets, etc. They're becoming more defined but I would like to add a few more inches. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do to keep them growing?

Tyler - congrats on your muscle gain. that's awesome you have gained that much. as for your arm training maybe try backing off the volume a bit.  train them only once a week and do all straight sets keeping the reps from 10-12.  you could be possibly over training them with all of the drop sets negatives etc. just go back to the basics and 3-4 exercises for bi and same for tri and see if that works. give it at least 4 weeks.

Tyler, Do you or have you taken weight gainer shakes? What is your take on those? Thanks man.

Tyler - I have taken weight gainers in the past in my first few years of lifting.  they will put weight on there is no doubt about that but it's not quality weight.  a lot of it is water and as soon as you stop taking the shake the weight will come back off.  whole food is the best way to go. if your going to take a shake get a high quality whey protein and just incorporate 1-2 shakes a day.

Do you have any plans to do personal training in NYC? If not can you recommend any trainers here?

Tyler - I don't live in NYC.  I don't know any trainers there sorry.

Tyler, due to the amount that I am working right now, I get about 2 hours of sleep between jobs, then I get about 4 hours iof sleep before I go back in. This schedule will last for about 3 weeks, do u think I should sacrifice an hour of sleep and continue to go to the gym daily, or just take 3 weeks off and then start up again when work slows down? If I take the 3 weeks off do you think I will lose the strength and results I've gained? I'm currently 5'10 and have been working to add lean muscle. I sit a 175 on an empty stomach and about 8-10% body fat.

Tyler - What I would do in this situation is at least get in 30-40 minutes of weight training 4-5 days a week.  you can still get a lot done in 30 minutes. 3 weeks is a long time to be out of the gym completely.

tyler - i am 6ft 180 and pretty ripped. as a goal for cy 2012 i want to shift bulk, power and speed to my legs. currently i do legs, chest, bi, tri, back and shoulder all for 1 hour. (abs every other day or so). i was thiinking of shortening back to 30mins and adding 40 extra mins of legs. so legs would be twice a week. what do you think? thank you.

Tyler - Instead of shortening your leg workout just split them up into 2 days. training quads one day and hams the other day.
