View Full Version : Quick question: Low Carbs

Where do you guys get glycogen to fill and replenish your muscles with on and extreme low carb diet? I'm not try to be a smart ass, I just want to know how you do it. What keeps your muscles and energy from going completely flat. I know how carb loading/depletion works for pre-contest. But how does it work when you do it for long periods of time?

To replete your resources....eat carbs. No magic to it. Your muscles will appear flatter, but that will go away as soon as you begin eating a normal split again.

Well - on a 6 day carb restriction cycle (1 day carb up), I feel pretty deflated by the end of the week. But - that's what the carb up is for - to supercompensate gylcogen stores so you can get your training done the next week.
