Because if it's fructose I don't want to eat much of them. If they aren't, well then I don't care!

09-12-2008, 09:57 PM

So I just did a killer legs workout on thursday, with my carb-up being on wednesday. I am deathly sore right now (saturday). I have been eating a ton of protein, but my recovery time still blows. Does this have to do with having no carbs, or am I doing something wrong?
After my workout on wednesday, this is what my day looked like.
Post-Workout- 1 egg, 1.5 scoops ON Whey in water, 2TBS NPB
1 hour later- 1 can Tuna w/ Mayo a handful of walnuts, and a spinach salad with EVOO
the rest of the day was basically 30-50g protein every 2-3 hours, along with various sources of fat.
I repeated the same thing yesterday with my chest/tricep workout, and my arms feel fine. Why are my legs always still really sore for 2-3 days after i work them?

Can't find any info on dinobites, they usually have a breakdown on Nutritiondata.com of the sucrose, glucose, fructose, etc that a product has. Doesn't even list it for fruity pebbles.
Some people respond badly to alcohol sugars, I just avoid them in general.

How much weight do you guys put on over the weekend from glycogen?
09-16-2008, 09:10 PM
about 4 4.5 lbs. you?
09-16-2008, 09:28 PM
well I didn't work out yesterday but I had practice. I weighed myself mid-day today and there was no difference between today and friday :/
09-16-2008, 09:47 PM
Last week i put on 7.4 lbs. Typical for me is about 5-7lbs.
09-16-2008, 09:48 PM
09-16-2008, 09:57 PM
Even today, i am up 4.6lbs over friday.. I usually baseline around Wed-Thur..
Did you have a weak re-feed? What do you typically gain? Any other changes?
09-16-2008, 10:28 PM
It definitely wasn't weak but it wasn't awesome. I honestly haven't been keeping track of weights after refeed. I thought about it today and couldn't figure out why I haven't been doing it.
I definitely didn't go all out on carbs but it was pretty hefty. Lots of simple carbs with some complex mixed in.

4.5 pounds on a weekend of refeeding? God damn. It is not uncommon for me to wake up Friday morning at 277, low carb until 5pm, have a depletion workout, and then hi carb and go to bed at 290. I normally wake up Monday at 288 or so, and then steadily lose about 2-3 lbs a day during the low carb portion of the diet (eating about 3000 calories a day, with about 40 minutes of fasted, low intensity cardio with BCAAs).
Honestly not sure what it is all about with the huge weight gain/loss. Going to try this next weekend with no sugary start, and just 48 hours of slow carbs (oatmeal, potatoes, whole wheat bread/pasta).
On a side note, overall I am looking better/stronger (most of my lifts has gone up at least 20 lbs) at the same weight, but I've noticed I'm getting stretch marks on my biceps. I'm not sure if its due to the weight flucuation, or the DermaTherm I've been trying recently, but it's kinda confusing
09-17-2008, 05:23 AM
maybe i'll buy a scale. the only scale i use is at the gym so i don't get to weigh myself until about 5:30 at night. either way i'll see what my weight is friday before depletion workout and then monday before workout. what's the rule on working out during carb up? also, its only week three but i think i'm going to change that most of my calories come earlier in the day as opposed to at night.
09-17-2008, 07:55 AM
6-8 normally. Since I started this superdrol cycle its up to like 10-12 a refeed.

The same holds true for those of you who consume MCT's (Medium Chain Triglycerides) such as coconut oil. They have a different structure than other fats that we preferentially consume on this diet and should be avoided for their ability to use a different energy substrate.
