Carb Cycling: Low Carb Day Pre-Workout


#1

Hey guys got a quick question on carb cycling. 3 low carb 1 high day. On low carb days are you supposed to consume any carbs pre workout? Thanks guys


#2

you can, but its not necessary. depends on how low you want to go. i like keeping carbs as low as possible on low carb days, but i only work out 4 times a week and eat plenty of carbs on those days.

I always do. Of course on my 'low' days, I'm usually doing abs and interval work, so I need something in the tank. If you've scheduled an actual off-day from the gym for your low days, you could squeak on by with a minimal amount.
