Hi guys, I want to start carb cycling as a strategy to lose fat whilst maintaining as much lean mass as possible (and mitigate the loss of strength). I lift 4x per week (upper/lower) and play indoor soccer 2x per week (constantly moving for 40 minutes with intermittent sprints, lateral movement, shooting etc). My stats are: - 188cm, 93-94kg (roughly 6'2, 205lbs) - Squat 155kg (341lb) - Bench 100kg (220lb) - Deadlift 190kg (418lb) I plan to have: - 3 days of low carb (soccer days, plus my day off) - 4 days of high carb (the 4 lifting days) As lifting is my priority I think this makes sense. Questions: - How should I time my carb intake for soccer days? Game times range from a 6pm to 10:30pm start... Should I have my limited carbs early in the day or save them for late at night before or after the game? - I lift in the early evening. Should I spread my carb intake throughout the day evenly, or dump it right before/after lifting? Thanks for the help, guys.
