Okay so I’ve been steadily cutting down for the last few months and am weighing in at 175 lbs. I have to be at 165 lbs for lightweight rowing and would like to ideally sit at 170 lbs with 5-6% bodyfat. I’m probably sitting closer to 9-10% right now (you can see on my log in the video on the last page at my current state)
So basically I require more carbs for training with rowing as it’s a highly intense sport both aerobic and anaerobic. That being said I’m unsure as to how to go about introducing carbs back in in large supply.
For the past 2 years I’ve been low carb for bulking and cutting. Currently thinking something along the lines of 35-50g of carbs before a rowing session and another 35-50g after?
I’m rowing 6 times a week, lifting 3 days a week. 5 of my rowing sessions are long distance pieces usually over 60 minutes as much as 120 minutes with heart rate being between 55-65% of max.
My last session is usually anaerobic threshold work right around 90-95% of max heart rate. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.
