i am training 5 times a week (using your 35 minutes to muscle template. its those 3 workouts plus one neural recovery workout and one lactate inducing workout a week). so far those workouts are AWESROME.
i am eating a lowish carb diet where i only have carbs periworkout (for the 3 weight workouts i have the full protocol but instead of FINiBARs i use two scoops of Surge Workout Fuel), and i started to throw in 20 minutes of HIIT (15 seconds max effort/ 45 seconds low intesity/rest) on some mornings. i know you do not recommend this on a lowish carbs diet, but 10 minutes before each HIIT session i have a scoop of MAG-10 with one scoop of Surge Workout Fuel.
i am wondering if this could possibly help maintain my performance during my weight workouts. for some reason, ever since i started the HIIT i feel so much better during the day, and i feel that all my other workouts are much more productive… am i fooling myself, or could this plan be possibly working. my calories a day are anywhere from 15-16 x bodyweight.
any advice would be much appreciated coach.
