Thread: non-lift days

quick question for u bros...
i noticed for me that if i ever break down on my diet, its on the few days that i do not lift, because i cycle my carbs, and i want to prevent that. i'm gonna make a quick outline below, and tell me if you think this sounds alright!
1 hour am cardio 7 days week
mon-weds no lift
thurs chest tri back
sat shoulders, neck traps
sun back biceps
now normally i never have a carb breakfast, only pwo and ppwo, but its killing me on the non lift days though, cause my pwo shake is gone. would it be alright on mon-weds(no lift) if i made these changes
meal 1:carb/pro------normally pro/fat
--------------------normally where pwo is
does this look alright if the macros were in check? i knwo hwo much food i need calorie wise, etc., but just want some input if the bros here think the extra carbs in the morning would be beneficial? i think the would help keep me on track, and smash all the cravings for fried dough and pancakes i been havin lately!

I wouldn't be training 4 consecutive days in a row in the first place. That combined w/cardio everyday is going to eventually catch up to you in a negative manner.

i plan on changing that anyway, but my real concern was the diet question i posted. my new lifting routine starts in 3 weeks and is going to be:
Sun chest tri abs
mon just cardio
weds just cardio
thurs shoulders traps neck
fri just cardio
saturday back biceps
but my question is stillt he same. on non-lifting days would the carbohydrate change be beneficial, or would it slow cutting progress too much?

Try both methods, that's the only way you can tell how you respond. I find I can have carbs in meal 1 while cutting, but I also have learned what else I have to do in order to include them.
I understood your question no problem, I was just pointing out what WOULD slow the cutting process in your plan of attack, much more-so than the decision you are facing. That being over-training and CNS damage.
Why wait 3 weeks?

dont train 4 days in a row? i thought the majority trains 1 body part per week and usually m-f w/ cardio in the mornings? everyday it seems like i dont know m,y as* from my elbow with BB.

bump. i'd like to know your reasoning on the cns damage SC. Nobody else has mentioned this to me. If the 4 days in a row is too much, would you personally think the new routine i'm starting is an improvement, or no? just want your .02
