    Question Low carb on non-training days myth


    Dedicated to carb cycling for clean bulk or cutting phaze...;

If you follow a high-carb diet and have adequate glycogen stores, you should be able to train harder and longer than when you follow a lower-carb diet
    Thats what i experienced. I totally agree with that.

    So why most of you guys having your low carb days on non-training days?

    nice. of course when you are cutting body fat you have to cut back some..that is why strength/ gym performance goes down.
