      getting ready to add this in at the end of the month as well. my night time routine is going to take an hour and a half haha:



      Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is an amino acid that is actually classified as a neurotransmitter. It functions like a natural tranquilizer by taking up residence in the nerve receptor sites in the brain which are normally reserved for stress and anxiety. In this respect it is highly regarded and frequently used in the treatment of panic/anxiety attacks and as a sleep enhancer. However, this remarkable substance has so much more to offer than just assisting you in obtaining a good night's sleep. Here are just a few of the benefits to be gained from the regular use of this supplement:

      Increased natural growth hormone secretion
      Increased protein synthesis in the brain, muscle and liver
      Enhanced immune function
      Reduction of high blood pressure
      Body fat reduction
      Increased lean mass gains
      Improvement in skin texture and condition, via increased collagen production
      Reduction in arthritic and lower back pain
      Improved blood sugar control
      Appetite suppression
      Anti- aging effects

      Probably one of the most interesting effects of GABA for bodybuilders is its ability to significantly increase growth hormone levels. Growth hormone has an extremely positive impact on the body when it comes to mood, energy levels, tissue repair and muscle growth. In a clinical trial conducted in 1980 it was shown that on administration of a single 5 gram oral dose of GABA, blood levels of growth hormone displayed a five-fold increase. This is considered the maximum amount that should be taken for this purpose as increasing GABA intake beyond this dose was not shown to have any additional benefits. So in the case of GABA more is not better. It is also wise to slowly build up to high doses - a good place to start would be around 2000mg - in order to determine individual tolerance levels. This is advisable because some individuals may experience a tingling sensation reminiscent of a ‘niacin flush' and a slight shortness of breath on initially experimenting with GABA. This is not harmful and usually subsides once the body becomes accustomed to its use, however some people may find it uncomfortable.

      ADDING GABA TO YOUR SUPPLEMENT REGIME

      The most beneficial time to take GABA is 30-45 minutes before bedtime. This takes advantage of your body's natural release of growth hormone which occurs approximately 90 minutes after you fall asleep. It also correlates well with GABA's slight sedative effects. It has been suggested that taking an extra dose of GABA during the early morning hours would generate another spike in growth hormone levels. However, no studies have been performed to prove that this would provide any additional benefits, added to which having the discipline to wake up and take this second dose would surely prove to be too much for most people!



      ANTICIPATED RESULTS FROM GABA USE

      The results of GABA supplementation vary from person to person but the one universally experienced effect is an improvement in the quality and duration of sleep. Many people also report an increase in lucid dream activity and an improved feeling of well being on awakening. In addition to this, nagging injuries are alleviated and workout recovery times are dramatically reduced. It is also worth noting that a decrease in body fat and an increase in lean mass can often be observed in as little as two weeks following the onset of GABA administration.

      GABA...THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

      It is worthwhile mentioning that as a supplement GABA has received less attention from medical researchers than it deserves. This is interesting since the studies that have been conducted have reported very positive results with GABA use. Its high concentration in the hypothalamus suggests that it plays a significant role in hypothalamic-pituitary function. Since the pituitary gland is the master gland affecting all hormone functions in the body it is safe to say that GABA's influence may positively benefit many health conditions affecting society today.

      In the meantime, as a sleep aid, recovery enhancer and growth hormone releaser it deserves a prime position on your supplement shelf, so go and check it out at your local health store today. You may also want to check out a product called SOMALYZE from Species Nutrition (Species Nutrition - Survival of the Fittest.) since this product combines GABA with several other nutrients in order to improve sleep patterns and enhance fat loss throughout the night.

      dont faint, i am posting this up for baby1 and mrzdiva. this is my post season binge this past contest season. i only do this for a very short period of time though haha. take a look:

      ok bow. i know you are going to tear into me but i do this for about a wk to 2 wks after a long prep. then i go back to eating the way i am supposed to. now i wouldnt recommend any normal person to try this feat of feasting but i am a sugar junkie and i worked my ass off. so i come off stage and this is how i started:

      1-20oz sweet tea
      1- 1/2 gallon of cherry limeaid flavored water jug (distilled of course and sugar free)
      headed to tgi fridays for dinner (normally i slay hooters but we dont have a tgi fridays near home and the wife had never eating it. i let her pick cause she worked just as hard as i did helping)

      1- plate of fried motzerala sticks with maranara sauce
      1- spicy beer cheese burger with jalopenoes
      2-large orders of season fries
      1- chocolate pb pie
      probably about 2 gallons of sweet tea (waitress left me two pitchers) i dont have anything carbonated since my fiasco in 2010 and i learned my lesson.
      1- rollo mcflury
      4- chocolate chip cookies
      and i went to bed. got up at 530 and headed to ihop:
      lots of sweet tea and coffee
      gravy biscuits with sausage and eggs
      side of sour dough toast
      1 stack red velvet pancakes
      1 stack strawberry banana pancakes.

      sorry i forgot to add in:
      large caramel latte from krispy kreme
      2 dozen assorted doughnuts from krispy kreme.
      these are also something we dont have at home and when i do a show it is a ritual to indulge in these nasty fried tasty pastries

      that has been it so far. i am still filling pretty good and re hydrating is going very well. i am actually excited to get started up bulking clean again here very soon. i may add to this later today cause i am not done just yet lol. i am a machine

      cut the workout short. no post workout cardio. the gym was stupid hot and as soon as i started warming up i felt sick. pump and feel was good but the excessive heat was making me sick at my stomach. i still get a halfway decient session in but would have been 100x more productive without the heat

      am fasted cardio:

      20 minutes step mill glute/calves

      no training today, just relaxing and eating. much needed rest for sure. and the funny thing is i was thinking maybe i am coming down with something after yesterdays gym debacle but i feel fine today. it was the heat and being in a depleted state that jacked me up for sure
