I realize this is probably not the forum to ask this question but heck I’ll give it a shot.
In about two weeks will be my soccer try-outs for college in which I want to perform to my max. Does anyone have/knows people who has had experience with carb-loading or at least knows a good way to do it.
I was researching and it seems like all the sites are telling people to first deplete glycogen for 3 days or so and then carb load for 3 days prior to the event at around 60-70% of the calories coming from carbs which is around 3-4g of carbs per lb of body weight. Kind of sounds like the AD in a way but with a shorter low-carb period.
Now for me, who follows a “bodybuilding” type diet seems like alot of carbs, I mean at 170lbs I would have to take around 510g of carbs for 3 stright days. Maybe I will do something like 5 days low-carb and 2 days of high carbs just like the AD.
Any thoughts, experience??
