    is INSULIN SENSITIVITY a prerequsite for hypertrophy?

    if you want to build some serious muscle mass (natty) is it much more preferable to have good insulin sensitivity?
    is it better to have low insulin levels or high insulin levels?

    is it best to get 'skinny' and shredded first before you start upping ur calories to build muscle mass??

    Better insulin sensitivity is a bonus, but it's not mandatory.

    Yeah, you should real Lyles articles if you want a full picture. We could feed the whole thing to you piecemeal - it's the same amount of reading - but I for one are not going to do that.

    My view - no you don't have to get skinny before being able to effectively gain muscle. You don't need to worry about insulin at all if you are not a diabetic.

    Being skinny is not only not a prerequisite but not advised. Just get down to a reasonable amount of leanness. Getting TOO lean and your body has more of a tendency to add fat rather than muscle when you reverse diet.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    Because it MIGHT make a 3% difference, where your workout, nutrition and consistency make up the other 97%.

    If you skim his post history hes very wrapped up in the 3% and probably doesn't put nearly enough effort into the 97%. Majoring in the minors is an understatement.

    15% for a male isn’t super lean assuming your body weight is normal.

    Stop trying to find some magic voodoo to getting lean and achieving hypertrophy. You need volume /high reps, consistent work out routine and a solid diet plan. The more work you put into it the better results (unless you get addicted and are doing 5 or more hours a day of exercise only eating “clean” and weird about it)

    Your natty and not diabetic, you don’t have a hereditary fructose intolerance, you don’t have to worry about insulin sensitivity, it will not matter nor will you even notice at this point in your training. Keto might make you lose some water weight. Just stick to the stickies.

    ok this is all fair information.

    i'm not diabetic so I guess thinking about my insulin sensitivity is pointless.

    Yes it's pretty much pointless.

    How much weight did you gain in the last 3 months?

    How much weight have you added to your bench press and squat in the last 3 months?
