Carb-Back Loading has been just the thing I needed to break my training plateau.
Originally, i was a carbo-phobe, and would stay away from any high-glycemic carbohydrates at all costs. I read carb-backloading on Elite FTS, but didn't start it until it was re-posted as an Elite FTS classic. I decided to give it a try and was shocked at how it jump started my training.
I was in a bit of a rut, and my bodyweight and lifts hadn't changed much in the past six months. As soon as I started back-loading my carbs I jumped from 240 to 250ish but looked more vascular and could see my abs better than I could the last time I cut down to 230. Also, my weighted chin up went from bw+60lbs for 5 reps to bw+90 for 5. I figured that there was no way my weighted chins would go up if i was getting fat, so i started eating as much as I could in the post workout hours before bed.
Now backloading is comfortable to me, I drink protein shakes at work and have a lean lunch consisting mainly of lean meat and veggies, as well as avocado for the fat and fiber. Before I work out I have some coconut oil, and I have more energy than when i used to take pre workout stimulants. Its as if the low carbs throughout the day let me be more alert and full of energy. Since backloading I have set pr's in all my lifts, and look the best I ever have at this bodyweight.
I look forwards to the book, and have been enjoying the new content (on t-nation?!?! really come a long way since logic does not apply)
