Rick Day - NYC

Tyler, how many fats would you say you take per day? How many in the form of supplements?

Tyler - I take in about 3-6g from fish oil and flax seed oil capsules.  I don't count incidental fats that are in protein shakes etc.  Each shake I have has a total of 6g a fat.  The rest would be from oatmeal,chicken, or my other protein sources which all usually have a few grams in.

Tyler, want to thank you for everything your doing with this website, your a true inspiration! Ive been on your website since before the shoutbox and is a great addition. My question is why have you decided to do your cardio separate from weight training now? Is it due to making sure you maintain muscle due to the intensity?

Tyler - I just needed a switch up.  No other reason but that.  Thanks for your support!

Hey tyler, what are your opinions on german volume training?

Tyler - I've never tried it.  I believe it's 10 sets of 10 though.  I prefer Hany Rambod's method of FST-7. Check it out at fst-7.com

often i eat a huge lunch (very healthy food however). i leave stuffed and don't eat for another couple of hours until after my workout infact (which starts at around 6PM). after I have a small meal and whey+cratine because my lunch was so big . is this ok if i am eating withiin my macros?

Tyler - I have no idea if this is within your macros.  You didn't tell me your weight or anything else.  I can tell you this though this is something that I wouldn't do for myself.  Smaller meals throughout the day will keep a steady flow of aminos in your bloodstream.  Eating huge meals to where you are stuffed I don't believe your body can utilize that amount of food properly.  I never stuff myself except of coarse if it's a cheat meal icon smile Questions 8/30/2011

hey Ty, thanks so much for all you do... I was wondering how many grams of Carbs and Fats you recommend per day or even per meal??

Tyler - It's different for everyone.  I recommend taking in 1.5g of protein per bodypound but as far as fats and carbs go it depends on your goals,weight,metabolism,gender, etc.

would you consider a diet plan where i take 300+ g carbs on workout days and 100g carbs on non workout days carb cycling? and will this let me gain lean mass or maintain only? btw 6' 1" 168lbs and 7-8% bf

Tyler - It really depends on how your body reacts.  You have to understand that everyone's body is different and your metabolism is different from mine. So I really can't tell you whether or not this will work for you.  You will have to experiment on your own to see if it works or not.

Also, how do i know if I have enough muscle on my body to convert to six pack abs through cardio and a high protein diet? could I just be setting myself up for disappointment if I don't have enough "meat" so to speak to carve a six pack?

Tyler - everyone has abs.  it's a matter of if you have a layer of fat covering them or not.  I don't understand what you mean that you don't have enough meat for a six pack.  focus on lowering your body fat by having a proper clean nutrition plan along with cardio work for shed the fat away so you can see your abs.

after i finish HIIT on the treadmill I have bumps on my legs? they go away after about 30 minutes. any idea what this is? do you get them?

Tyler - No I do not get bumps in my legs?? you might want to go to a doctor and get that checked out that does not sound normal.

one more, what supplements you recommend to my goals? jack3d, protein, and bcaa? some fut burner?

Tyler - jack3d just seems like it's a stimulant. When I took it I would crash badly and have to take a nap almost after every workout.  I suggest getting a good whey protein and bcaa's, multi-vitamin, and creatine.  I would try everything out first without a fat burner and make sure to eat a balanced healthy meal plan.
