    How often should I carb up?


    Hey guys I'm currently in the 2nd to last week of my cut, show day is 27th December. I began carb depleting 60g a day on the 10th. What days do I need to carb up, and by how much?

    Why are you depleting so early?
    What is your daily carb level at normally?

    2 days before if you're a slow loader, 1 day if you can load hard & fast & don't bloat.

    A lot of people are different

    Need to get as lean as possible in 14 days so I thought it'd be wise to. Usually about 100g on a cut, 230g on maintenance and 375g on bulk
