  • carb loading ?

    hey guys-
    im competing in july in the super heavy weight class, currently am at 255lbs at 6.9%bf-this is my first show and im clueless how to carb up-im going to be depleting down to 100g of carbs sunday-tuesday then start my carb load weds-fri-with my bodyweight, how many carbs should i load with? i was thinking of going with 600g-100 each meal 6 times a day what do you think? i have read to stick to the same type of carb throughout the load-is that necessary? if so i was going to stick with oatmeal for the entire three days-any input would be greatly appreciated

      What you load with & how much is going to depend on a couple of things. Like; what your carb sources were during the prep, what kind of condion you're in when you start loading, how depleted you are.

      I wouldn't recommend oatmeal for all three days though. Maybe Wednesday through Thursday, then use other options.
