Listener Q&A:

====================================== [contact-form 3 "AskBen”] ======================================

Violet asks: I have always had large calves and no matter how much weight I loose, they don’t change. I don’t want the muscle any bigger, I just want to loose fat, especially the fat right under my knee. I have done the calf raises on the stairs, but is there anything else I could try? Also, I don’t know if this has anything to do with it, but I am very hyper-mobile especially in my knees.

Listener Mike has a call-in question about PowerCranks.

Ron asks: Several podcasts had mention of flax seed in a positive vein. My research differs. I stopped taking Flax Seed Oil about a year ago because of its very high Phytoestrogen content. Mens Health had an article on Soy Milk, also high in phytoestrogen, awhile back in which a male was drinking two quarts a day and his breasts were enlarging.

Listener Ranieri has a call-in question about knee pain from riding a bike indoors vs. outdoors.

Listener Mer asks: Have you ever heard of bar method? In Chicago and LA it’s taking off like wildfire. Lot of pretty bold claims by this Burr Leonard Woman. Lots of youtube coverage as well. I think I (and my muscles) would get bored with this formulaic type class 3 times per week.

  1. Kyle Kranz says:

    I disagree about KC's comment on losing muscle mass. The reason us endurance athletes have skinny upper bodies is not from a lack of a good "flow of PRO into the body", but because we simply do not use the muscle. Look at elite triathletes vs elite runners. Those that use their upper body more have more mass. Endurance athletes have larger leg muscles because we use those muscles more. From what I understand having muscle mass or not is more an issue with using it or losing it, and has less to do with your nutrition intake. From what I understand.

    1. Mer says:

      I think it's both. I look at elite endurance athletes and elite sprinters and many sprinters have significant upper body mass comparatively, one could argue that endurance athletes are swinging their arms much more during their race thereby utilizing the muscle more. Or that sprinters lift more to improve their arm pumping during their sprint. It probably has just as much to do with muscle metabolisation during endurance sports.
