carbs and cardio

Postby admin » Mon Jul 09, 2018 12:54 pm

So how many carbs you guys consuming daily at the moment?
and how much cardio are you doing?

Im now down to 250gram of carbs per day and averaging 1000 calorie of cardio per day on the bike.
i dont count the calories burnt in the gym tbh.

280 at the moment, not bulking or cutting just trying to keep fit and maintain a bit of shape

Oh and zero cardio :lol:
Massive, Ripped, Natural <<<< Pick two

No amount of fat burners will substitute a calorie deficit :-)

Just spent two weeks in Italy, so nearly zero protein, and heaps of carbs. Naples is the place for pizza after all. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I'm trying a low carb bulk at the moment, 126g on training days and 16g on a rest day (training is DC MWF with very low effort cardio TTS)

Carbs are sub 100g each days fats are high though 50% of diet.

Cardio has tapered down thia week to 6 hrs from 20hrs zone 2 a week.

Bit of trivia for those who are interested.

As I said been in Italy for two weeks, no training and only really been eating pasta and pizza.

Sunday is our weigh in day for the lads and I. We measure BF, Muscle % and so on. Now you would think that pigging on pasta and pizza everyday I would have piled the pounds on... Right?

Er no. Lost 5 pounds in body mass, and 2% of muscle mass. Simply because no gym and not eating right. BF dropped too, I guess because of the change in diet causing metabolism to have to adjust to the different food.

Certainly would have liked to have kept the muscle mass on :lol: :lol:

But yeah, just shows that mixing things up diet wise is a good thing. Same as we should mix it up in the gym with how we train. Keep the body guessing... :ugeek:
