Very confused about carb cycling, please help!!!
ok, i'll give you my stats first, i'm 5'10, 240, and i dont know my body fat % but it's probably like 22-25%. i've been serious into lifting now for a year, basically goign to the gym at least 5 days a week. my current plan is this, i'm on a 1900-2200 calorie diet with a 40/40/20 split, and eating mostly chicken, fish, rice, fruit, vegetables. i'm taking CEE and Citruline Malate, thinking about taking ALCAR too,but unsure, so if someone has some input on that it would be appreciated. my week looks like this.
Mon- Back and shoulders - gym time - 1 hour
Tues - HIIT - gym time - 25 min
Wed - Legs - gym time - 1 hour 15 min
Thurs - HIIT - gym time - 25 min
Fri - Chest, Bi's Tri's - gym time - 1 hour 15 min
Sat - HIIT - gym time - 25 min
Sun - OFF
my HIIT is on a precor because running gives me ridiculous shin splints and i cant even walk halfway through.
my question is this, should i stick with what i'm on now??? i'm seeing alright results, even though i'd like to see better. but i'm not taking an eca stack because the sexual side effects i cant deal with. or should i try out carb cycling??? i can be strick with my diet, everything gets logged in fitday. and if i'm to do carb cycling what days should be high, low, no days??? any help would be appreciated. oh yea, my cheat meal is normally going out on a friday and having 8-10 beers.
