I’m a big fan of yours.I’ve read every damn article of yours,as well as “The Black Book of Training”
I have one question about the peri-workout nutrition.
Currently,I am trying to gain some weight,I am using the carb-cycling codex I am confused,my peri-workout is big dose of BCAA+citrulline and creatine monoydrate.And I’m doing a little cardio after the weight training,except after leg day (mostly some intensive jump ropes,or a few sprints).Currently,I am drinking maltodextrin (because there’s no cyclic dextrin products in my country) post-workout with whey isolate.So,the question is - If I add some maltodextrin/waxy maize/vitargo to my shake during the workout,my insulin would be high and it would be very beneficial for the faster absorption of nutrients,but that way when insulin is high and I do cardio,would I even burn any fat ? Because,as far as I know HIGH INSULIN=No fat burn.If it’s not a good idea,I might just move the cardio to my off-days,which I planned for active recovery.What would you recommend me to do ? Thank you in advance for the response !
