Hey, Coach CT,
I had a question about incorporating high carb days in my week. I’m focusing on trying to add some size to my lower body and would like to incorporate high carb days around leg days. My question is if I train at night, would I be better off having the high carb day on leg day or the day after, to improve protein synthesis and help in recovery? I’m trying to keep my calories at maintenance levels on non-leg days and higher carb days on leg days which I train 2x a week.
I love to hear any recommendations on how I could program high carb days, and whether I’m better off doing them the day of leg days or the day after, assuming my workouts are at night? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! thank you in advance!
