    Glycobol after a weigh in?


    I just curious as far as how well glycobol would work after a 24 hour weigh in to get water weight back on. Has anyone tried it? What kind of protocol can be used?

    I cannot answer that. Maybe Andrew or Crazyfool will chime in on that.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

    More than likely, water will come from the carbs you eat while taking the glycobol.

    What was ur diet like previously before the weight in?

    For sure it can help with upregulation of glut 4 translocation and with the uptake of carbs and insulin sensitivity in muscle will come water weight and hydration. So ur carb load may help u retain that hydration and extra carbs to fuel your activity

    Sorry I didn't give much info. I was thinking of using glycobol after a 24 hour weigh in for a powerlifting meet. Before the weigh in my diet is high protein, moderate carbs, moderate fat. To make weight I can usually lose about 10 lbs just by cutting water and foods about 16 hours before the weigh in. To replenish weight I usually consume starchy foods, water, pedialyte etc... Just wanted to know if glycobol would be better at getting water and carbs to my muscls instead of just my waistline

    Oh yea absolutly. Have u thought bout slowly lowering carb intake and then by the time ur at the weigh in ur at low carb so u get some sweet supercompensation and insane strength whenu add carbs back in

    And to answer ur question very simply gbol will help replenish glucogen and increase its storage along w that comes water

    Glycobol is great for refeeds, I suggest taking glycobol 30 minutes before eating, but when you eat, POUND the carbs, the glycogen storing capabilites of glycobol are amazing, we constant feedback from people who notice more endurance and increased when cycling glycobol. The fact that you are depleting carbs from your body at the moment, only means more pronounced effects for glycobol to kick in.

    Thanks for the input everyone. Now one last thing I'd like to know is should I stick with normal dosing or should increase it since I will be consuming way more carbs than normal?

    To build tolerance start with one per meal with carbs, if you have no problem such as stomach discomfort, go ahead and take2 with your meals that contain carbs, great stuff, I am an MMA fighter as well as baseball player, so if you have questions in regards to glycobol, diet, and powerlifting, feel free to pm me, its my specialty LOL.

    start 1 pill 2x a day and increase every 3 days until 4 pills are reached stay there for a couple days then you can start trying the dosing of 2 pills for a heavier carb meal

    The best things for after a weigh-in:
    Glucose Partitioner (15 minutes prior)
    32 oz of water with 80g WMS/25g SuperCarb/15g BCAA, 1 B-50 cap, and 1 tsp potassium gluconate

    45 minutes later
    Clean meal of lean protein (4 oz or so) along with a heaping portion of carbs (pasta, rice, potatoes) and 3-4 servings of fruit

    2 hours later
    another of the WMS drink

    After that slow grazing and sipping until 2-3 hours prior to fight. 1 gallon of water is ~8 lbs (or 1 pint/lb), so adjust your consumption as necessary.
