    Use what you have been eating all the way through the diet as you know how your body reacts.


    If you use complex carbs through your diet then simply increase the amount.

    If you refeed each week using simple carbs then use the same carbs. Know how long it takes for your body to expel the water and look your best for pre-judging.

      The text book answer is that since you are depleted to your lowest point, the muscle is very accepting to insulin at any level but once the glycogen begins to store so will the threshold of insulin need to be lowered. That was your text book answer.

      The right answer is strictly dependant on your situation as Ive been as low as mid 3's in bodyfat to high 5's at some shows over the 23 years.

      The more fat you carry the less insulin you will be able to secrete safely without spilling over as spillover is exactly that. Insulin is attempting to enter the fat cell and not the muscle cell. Those at the peak of their game use a glucometer for 100% accuracy but 99% of guys who compete use the "ROLL THE DICE" protocol.

      Also the simple calculation of each gram of carb consumed will utilize 2.7 grams of water must be taken into account so you will be able to drink more water if theres less sub q fluid/fat on you and less water if there is more sub q fluid/fat.

        This is why we start big time with the white potatos (+GDA) on wednesday and then back them off on Thurs and cut them on Fri, right?

        Do you have/use different formulas for water allowance based on bodyfat % and LBM? If I eat 16x LBM in kilos at 4% vs 7%, what is the difference in water allowance? Does that question make sense?

          The difference is 23 years of experience watching x amount of carbs react a certain way in hundreds of bodybuilders over these years to learn this.

          You spit out #'s and talk as if your now a teacher and prep guru and you have more than a few weeks under this protocol. Stop doing that.

          Thats how the game telephone works. By time it gets down the line it all screwed up.

          Nothing personal.

            I'm looking back through my post--what did I say that implied that I'm a teacher and guru now?

            I am the first to acknowledge that I am VERY young in this sport and don't make any claims of expertise or experience. I was just trying to learn more about the intricacies of the protocol.

            My only use of the numbers in that particular post was to clarify my question (and if I botched the numbers, sorry), not to imply that I'm an exepert or experienced in this protocol.

            I know it's not personal.

                    Keep your friends close to you and your enemies even closer. Thats what I've always been told.

                    Tore a meniscus pretty bad with a complex tear of the posterior horn and body segment of the medial meniscus having both vertical as well as horizontal damage. To add to that had to have some bone shaved to clean things up and I cant even walk 100%, 8 weeks later, let alone train...

                    They found thickening of the Medial Collateral Ligament with adjacent edema consistant with capsular scarring.

                    There were also issues with an impaction injury within the Anteromedial Femoral Condyle with no evidence of a discrete Osteochondral defect.

                    There was a 2cm Popliteal cyst as well as one that had ruptured recently as fluid was noted along the posterior margin of the medial head of the gastrocnemius.


                    Other than that things are just peachy keen!

                          Although I like to take a more conservative approach to the carbing up process...I do agree with Tipsta in that if you're going to use simple or "simpler" carbs, do that early in your carb up process and then utilize complex carbs.

                              Actually not really as Rehab is really just personal training for the injured and I have 100% full range of motion. Rehab is more for people that have not done any muscle building and due to the surgery need to strengthen the surrounding area. I as well as many of us do not fit that bill. However other types of therapy will be important such as Stim/Ultrasound/Vasocompression...etc. as well as deep therapy to break up the surrounding muscle guarding. I have my own therapy machines thanks to a family member who does Rehab for the NHL. My issues are just the bone shaving at this point as its still sore to the touch.
