After 8 successfull weeks of “Layer” (+3 kgs without gaining much fat) I just finished my first week of double stimulation training.
What I immediately recognized was the fact that I seemed to gain more fat compared to the previous weeks I think mostly due to the fact, I increased cal.intake, because I thought training 6times a week with 2 CNS days (Bench + squat and Deadlift and overheadpress) and 4 hypertrophy days might actually be more demanding than the layer-system…
Just to get things clear. My nutrition during “layer” was based on carb cycling with
2 “high carb” days on “squat” and “deadlift” day,
3 moderate days on the “press” and “back” and “chest” day and
2 “low carb” days on my off or conditioning days.
total cal.intake was between 3000kcal on low and 3900 on high days ( I’m a 1,74m 80kg guy with pretty low bodyfat)
I gained approx. 300g per week
So when I changed the training system to the double stimulation system, I increased carbs by 25g on all 7 days, high carb days on CNS 1: Bench and Squat and on “legs and traps” hypertrophy day
I gained 1 kg per week. little bit too much isn’ it?
Should I rather eat more carbs on the hypertrophy days (specifially on the leg and and back days) or on the CNS days?
As always thank you.
And sry for grammar faults, english isn’t my first language.
