What exactly are you eating to get 800-1000g of carbs[/quote]
I pretty much follow UD2 guidelines
fruit morning pre-workout and some gatorade peri-workout, full body and 6-12 reps. If I’m doing a multi-day refeed, carb load might start in an evening, and continue the next day.
Then whatever condensed sugar I am craving with FF milk PWO, and starches every couple hours after that until sleep. 100g a meal for 6 meals after the huge PWO meal is easy as hell and I usually end up doing bigger meals or just slowly eating stuff tbh.
Some veggies and potatoes and beans too, an of course protein sources. Between tagalong fats and some fish oil and maybe a little olive oil or w/e there isn’t any need for more fat. Although sometimes I like to terminate the whole endless insulin surge and feeding frenzy before sleep with a filling fatty burger on an ezekiel bun and pass right out.
If it’s a one day deal, push the workout as hard as possible and go back to whatever your plan is the next day. If it’s a multi-day like at the end of a PSMF or specific plan, more carbs but nothing comparable and mostly low GI stuff, maybe 2-2.5 g/lb for me if I did 1k the last day. Creatine and l-glycine and ALA as well during the carb load.
Then the morning after that I wake up feeling beastly and by the afternoon I have an urge to throw around as much weight as my body will let me and do a heavy ass power workout
I’ve found I am stronger and better recovered with an additional day in between the workouts but I’m sure it’s a trade off and some people are fine with a day and a halfs recovery.
