Meathead tread. All things lifting. *warning broscience* in The Jets Lounge Posted May 23, 2014 Yeah, I'm always lifting. I don't take more than a week or so off at any given time unless I'm injured or something. I'm kind of a bro about it lol. I see what you're saying though; I don't remember offhand how many carbs I was taking in during a typical day (it wasn't super low or anything), but I'd imagine I could stand to up it on training days. There's probably a magic number for me somewhere that would fill me out a little better without kicking me out of ketosis. I'd just have to experiment with it and see what happens. And pee on a lot of sticks. That part's always fun. do you take amino acid supplements? Arginine?....that sht keeps you pumped. I havent taken them in years but i recall the "pumped" feeling it would always give my muscles. The only supplement i take today is BCAA's however. are you or were you doing ketosis 7 days a week or were you carbing up on one or two days? If your hitting the weights all week, like do i, i would suggest having at least a day n half of carbs preferably around your tougher workout days i.e, squats or deadlifts.
