    No difference between a carb loaded WO and a keto WO?

    I use a TKD(targeted ketogenic diet) which mean I carb load before my workouts, sometimes up to a day and a half before. I don't carb load before leg days cuz my legs make gains no matter what and are quite thunderous. Anyway, i usually carb load with low GI carbs for a day or so before my upperbody day.
    So yesterday i decided to do an experiment and see what happens if I don't carb load,and..... Nothing was different. I hit the same amount of reps and even increased my reps by one on my skullcrushers and i still had a wicked pump . I hadn't eaten carbs since saturday nite, and had a leg day on monday.
    This makes me wonder if i shoulder bother carbing up at all ever again.
    Perhaps my carb loads were not intense enough. At 163 i load with about 400grams and double creatine before the workout.

    Could i perhaps still have had some glycogen from saturday nite? I had a cheesburger, a double cheesburger, and a side of fries. So figure 60 carbs for the first burger, 90 for the second(3 buns on it) and say another 30 for the fries. So that comes to about 180grams. That still wouldnt be there by wednesday night would it? An remmeber, i did legs on monday, however that might not effect glycogen stores in my upper body.

    Whatcha think?
