if i following the carb cycling program of HI, MED, & NO carbs, could i do cardio in the morning on empty stomach on the NO CARB day if i follow it with a hearty protein shake as well as protein throughout the day.
No, you absolutely can't do that. Rick James will come back to life and slap you if you do.
u can have a pro/fat meal 30min after cardio and meal2 2.5-3hr later pro/carbs
u need some carbs bro to restore energy. u can go low 30-45g carbs in that dayjust one pro/carb meal and u`ll be fine
Hehehe... Short answer. Yes...Originally Posted by Blown
That would be counter productive IMO. Cardio has the same effect of increased insulin sensitivity as strength training does. If I had one meal a day to eat carbs and it was a cardio only day, I would definitely have it after cardio.Originally Posted by cyflex
i agree bro.. i know that lipolisis continue after stop cardio for 30-45min and slowly decreased by time after..if i`m wrong correct me, so thats the point of the pro/fat meal after cardio and restore the energy laterOriginally Posted by Lean One
Maybe I went against the grain, but I did a Low, Med, Hi carb cycle for 15weeks and cut from 18% BF to 9-10% with little loss in muscle. I DID do cardio (lower intensity) on Low carb day figuring that it would speed up fat burning. But then again my low carb day was 100-150 carbs...so not low-low...but that gradual cut was how I was able to keep most of my lean mass.
Well...just finished cutting...be kind.
