    Nutrition and powerlifting


    So nutrition is important all the time but just for curiosity sake. Is it more beneficial to say get all ur nutrition needs the day before a workout which for me is also an off day, or is it more important the day of?

    It's important all the time; I'm not sure I understand the premise of the question. Why would you have to choose a day to eat for your goals?

    Personally, the only difference for me between off day and training day is intra-workout nutrition. My supplementation and eating around my sessions adds ~75g carbs and about 80g protein. That's the only difference for me.

    Try it.

    Honestly, IMHO, the presence and makeup of peri-workout nutrition trumps what you ate the day before.

    Which goes back to my original premise; choose your peri well, eat whatever you want the rest of the time.

    I've used tons of protocols depending on goals; CKD, TKD, carb cycling, carb nite, CBL. I've trained fed, fasted, early AM, late PM. I can tell you that, for me, the most consistently important component for recovery & strength has been peri nutrition.

    I agree with u completely just typically my Preworkout meal consists of what I would normally eat for that day but I have noticed no different in gym performance since I started carb cycling only thing is on fat days I get tired earlier in the day

    I keto diet and it's amazing
    Currently cutting body fat. Eating no more than 1000-1500kcal a day
    4 day CMS Sheiko training is a breeze still

    When I am in meet prep, I'll start lean and increase calories to 4000-5000kcal a day and I do not get fatter at all, just really strong

    I like to look at my eating in relation to my workouts. Since I workout in the AM that means my largest carb meals are the night before and right after I lift (along with some during).

    I should note I train quite frequently and my low carb days aren't very low carb.
