comment How does alcohol really affect gains?
Great answer. I think it's worth mentioning that testosterone levels are negatively affected by alcohol consumption as well: pubs.niaaa.nih.gov/publications/arh25-4/282-287.htm

comment Is it bad for me to taking protein shakes without working out?
@hortstu Correlation does not infer causality: naho.ca/blog/2011/06/27/…. Yes Inuit situation is unique, but still proves my point.

comment Is it bad for me to taking protein shakes without working out?
@Freakyuser That's patently absurd misinformation. Humans can survive perfectly fine on diets composed almost entirely of fats and proteins. Traditional Inuit diets derive, at most, 35-40% of their calories from protein, with 50-75% of calories preferably coming from fat. [1]

comment 40/40/20 Ratio and 1.5g of protein per pound still a good rule of thumb?
I think this is a pretty good answer, but I don't think it's possible to speculate on whether or not 3150 calories is too much or too little without knowing the OP's lean body mass, resting metabolic heart rate, hormonal levels, etc. The poop test sounds anecdotal: what consideration does it give to dietary fiber content, resistant starches, etc? Calories and poop are definitely correlated but I don't think that's a good rule of thumb. One could eat 2000 calories of high fiber foods and still get a couple of monsters looking back per day. 2-3 poops per day is average and healthy.

comment What's a good intermediate/advanced squat routine?
Thanks for the suggestion, e1che! I've done sessions like that for conditioning and they really work great for hypertrophy (they're called death by clean and jerk, or death by "whatever"). There's a really impressive video of Mikko Salo using that rep scheme here. However, I'm looking for a more formulaic workout to get my 1RM up, as Dave mentioned.

comment What's a good intermediate/advanced squat routine?
briddums, thanks for the suggestion but I'm already a pretty experienced squatter and I'm looking for something to put me solidly into the "advanced" category. As Dave said, SS is great for beginners though!
