I’m 27 years old (in 3 weeks), 6 foot tall, and weigh 168 (no colon…please don’t judge).
I lift on Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat using the 5/3/1 bodybuilding training template. Then on every “off” day I’m playing basketball anywhere from an hour to two hours. Other than that, I shoot hoops every day (by myself) for 20-45 minutes as additional cardio. I also do core work and/or corrective exercises every day.
I’m curious as to the amount of carbs (per day) you think that type of effort deserves given my vitals. Wanting to see if I’m undervaluing my needs with what I’m currently doing, which is basically 200-250 carbs per day plus two cheat meals each week (which raises it to about 400-600 on those days). Using this method I’ll either shoot up to 174, or drop to 166. My body is…odd. But like I said, no colon. Really hard to knock down consistency without one (at least for me, anyway).
For the record…the only carbs I eat (excluding cheat meals) are oats, rice cakes, rice, sweet potatoes, bananas, and malto/dextrose powders or granola bars post weight training workouts.
