Would just like to ask for some help regarding refeeds. Background info:
5 weeks out from show. 6’4’’ 248lbs.
Pull/Leg Days: 270 P, 65 F, 50 C.
Push/Off Days: 270 P, 65 F, 0 C.
Realize it’s very little food, but also running a decent PED dose so I’m actually getting stronger. Deadlift for 6 reps has gone from 220 kg to 250 kg from 13 weeks out to 5 weeks out. Other lifts have shown similar improvements, though deadlift has jumped the most probably due to my height making the lift easy to achieve.
Cardio has increased steadily and is at 2 hours p day atm.
Progressive overload method. Max 16-18 sets per day on the big muscles (excluding arms and calves). Beat every number for reps or weight used. A variation on Dorian or DC training, get most of my information from Jordan Peters (TrainedbyJP).
Now regarding refeeds, how much should I actually increase my carbs on those days? Have read Contradicting articles, some say triple your carbs, some say hit maintenance calories? What are your opinions on the matter?
Thank you very much
