Hello fellow AD’rs. I’ve been AD’ng for about a 5 weeks now, & love it so far. I’m trying to be healthy about this. Lots of flax, free range chicken & eggs, grass fed beef, almonds, & fiber. This is a really fun diet.
I train with a dual factor approach, with a West-side body part split(I am not on a West-side routine). I’ll only train heavy for two workouts out of a two week block. They fall on Wed & Fri.
Problem: Wed is so-so, but I am noticably weaker on Friday. This is the day I’m trying to set PR’s, hit some rest-pause sets, etc, & I’m not even able to match my previous best.
Do I need to schedule these heavy, glycogen depleating (& relient) workouts on Mondays instead? When I’m fully glycogen loaded. I think I know the answer, but it could never hurt to ask you experienced AD’rs.
Thanks in advance.
BTW, I was referred to this board by a forum brother over at Iron Addicts.com. He suggested I read the “My Experience with the AD” thread, which I am working on.
