I have literally been searching all freaking week for an old post I saw posted here a couple of years ago... It was a copy and paste from the web about a Mass-Up protocol from a Charles Poliquin Seminar that involved a carb cycling type approach. If I remember correctly, and I certainly hope that I do, John Berardi replied at one point during the thread and said that the enormous calories on the carb up would likely lead to significant fat accumulation.
It came to my remembrance after I was reading this article from Nick Mitchell on his site after he referenced Poliquin...
Article Title: The Ultimate Muscle Plan - 22Lbs in 11 weeks! Bodybuilding at it's best.
Article Quote: The BEST way I know to gain quality mass involves a rotation of your carbohydrate intake, 3 very distinct mini training cycles and styles over an 11 day schedule, days of low carbohydrates followed by carefully planned days of high carbohydrates (a real pleasure!), and is guaranteed to hold the interest and enthusiasm of even the most jaded character.
This is a method that was personally taught to me by world renowned strength and conditioning guru Charles Poliquin...
So, I would greatly appreciate anyone making me look stupid here and finding this so I dont think I am loosing my mind! Thanks!
