I have a Christmas contest coming up (no joke). It’ll be on December 19th. Perfect way to avoid pre-Christmas binges…
I usually go low carbs for 4 days, followed by a carb-up day (Friday).
During the low-carb days, would you keep any of the peri-workout supps? Obviously non of the carb-containing ones, but how about Alpha-GPC, hydrolized casein during workouts, bcaa (during, still take them) and whey an hour or so after the deloading workout. Keep them in or drop them?
On Friday I’ll do an arms-only muscle emphasis workout. Concentric work only. Would you go for the complete protocol since it’s carb-up day anyways?
And a last one: what’s your recommendation on water intake the day before the contest?
I usually hava around 1 liter before 4 pm an no water at all after that.
I usually carb up with 450 gram of carbs over 6 meals. I’ll be around 215.
Thank you very much!
