I was thinking about this the other day and I can’t recall anyone, outside of Schwartz, who stuck to a low carb gameplan while on cycle. Cycle for bulking that would be.
I include in the “low carb” any kind, be it the Anabolic Diet, restricting carbs to post workout, or whatever. Now I know that most will say that the carbs are need for muscle growth or just to keep the calories high enough. But wouldn’t just focusing on keeping calories and protein high enough work just as well?
This has been brewing in my head for a while but popped up fully for two reasons. I’m currently going low carb except for post-workout shake and still taking in around %36-3800 calories. Secondly, I got talking with a guy who competed in the Canada’s Strongest Man. He said that most of the competitors, and these are the monster sized guys, were sticking to a low carb approach throughout the year. And they were huge and ripped. And most likely, on cycle.
I’m not really concerned with the logistics of high carb vs low carb for the non-AAS users, I would just like to hear some discussion from those of you in the know and why there seems to be very few who bulk lowcarbidly(I just made that word up, trademark enforced).
Thanks in advance.
