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?

    How long...

    I know normally the pros take 3 day to refeed precomp so that they muscles will not be flat. But how long does it take for glycogen to be fully repleted in someones body. Does a 1 day refeed take care of it or does it have to be carried out for a couple of days like the pros do? When I refeed my muscle look like crap by the next day or 2. lol.

    You should try making your post titles more descriptive, so that those that have more knowledge on the subject are more likely to look at your post, and those of us that dont, wont waste our time on it. An example would be "Replenishing Glycogen" or something like that.
    Thank you

    Assuming full depletion you should be able to refill muscle glycogen up to 100% capacity, that is of course if you take in enough carbs to do so. It is possible to store more larger than normal amounts of glycogen (glycogen supercompensation), but in order to accomplish this you would probably have to go with a 2 day carb load. Although you would want to take in more carbs on the 1st day as compared to the 2nd day.

    Well if you are following a reduced calorie diet after the refeed, you should expect some glycogen depletion. You can't keep that full look while following a reduced cal, lower carb diet.
