I started the ten days prep fase, 9 days ago. Sunday will be my first backloading day, but something has dawned on me. I have a family and I want to enjoy a normal family dinner with my two sons (age 3 and 5). I can't tell them to eat their rice and potatoes if they don't see me eating them.
The problem with backloading is that I can't have any carbs on those dinners since I workout from 19:30 till 21:00 and will then carb up.
I workout on monday, wednesday and friday evening.
After I've leaned out enough I wan't to manage my calorie intake with one or two days of intermittant fasting. Something I've done three years ago on a bulk with great succes. But it was also a struggle since it's not preferable to fast after a weightraining session. So I sometimes fasted on weekends, which was horrible.
How do other familymen and woman manage their time in the gym, with a daytime job and kids?
