Two-a-Day Nutrition

What type of nutrition would you reccomend for this, i know everythngs not clear cut and everyones bodies are different but im looking for a basic format to follow such as how to get enough nutrients, what supps are neccessities, little tips such as naps, ice baths, anything else that would help someone doing 2 a day workouts.
Even splits may be helpful

Right now my training is very high volume almost all to failure, ive been training for about 4 years and I know a lot of people will say what im doing is overtraining but i get great results. I want to try 2 a days and i think i will benefit.

Thibs seemed to get results with perfect reps both sessions of the day, working (roughly) the same muscle groups both times.

Poliquin seemed to like low reps during the first session and higher reps (more of a “TUT” type of training) during the second session, also working the same muscle groups.

Try carbs and protein before (at least the first) workout. Or some cool Biotest periworkout stuff if your country and wallet allow it.

^This: CT’s two a day program with the perfect rep --> http://tnation.tmuscle.com/free_online_forum/sports_body_training_performance_bodybuilding_thibaudeau/what_i_am_doing_now_repost_for_another_thread I feel it did a good job of dealing with fatigue, and you can probably even add more high reps sets to the end of the workouts (once you’ve ramped to your max set of 3).

I followed the training and supplementation that CT discussed (while averaging only 60-80 grams of carbs per day), with excellent results! I cut substantial weight (49 pounds in 12 weeks) and impresively increased strength. If my goal had been increased muscle, I feel it’s still good program. If I had upped the calories, I would have been able to no doubt add a lot of muscle mass.
