The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Is Induction period necessary on CKD?

    when beginning CKD... is it necessary to go 2 weeks in ketosis without any carb-ups to acclimate the body to it? Some people suggest beginning the carb ups after 2 weeks of full ketosis..

    i'm just worried that i won't have any energy on my first workout following my first week of ketosis, so I want to carb up.

    p.s. i have done ckd and low carb diets in the past.

    I would recommend some form of a carb up after the first week of ketogenic dieting. If you have fully depleted your glycogen stores over the course of the first week then you will need the carb load to replinish the lost glycogen. If you do not do this then yes your workouts will suffer. Might want to do a carb load over 1 day the first week and see how your body responds and then on the second week go with a 2 day carb up.

    so according to the plan..

    i am in ketosis monday through friday... and carb ups are on saturday/sunday.

    i perform the depletion workout on friday, consuming about 50 grams of carbs before the workout.

    My question is... do i start the carb up immediately after the workout on friday.. or do i start it on saturday morning?

    The CKD Workout Routine
    With the above estimations for sets and reps having been made, we can develop a sample workout routine. The format for the CKD week is:

    Day Workout type Diet

    Sunday: 30'+ of low intensity cardio in Ketogenic

    morning to establish ketosis

    Monday: Tension weight training workout Ketogenic

    Tuesday: Tension weight training workout Ketogenic

    Wed/Thu: cardio optional for fat loss Ketogenic

    Fri: Full body workout Ketogenic prior to workout

    Begin carb-load after

    workout

    Saturday: No workout Carb load
