How Much Carbs....Do I Increase?
Here's the deal. I am doing forestry bridge maintenance. That means that I repair/maintain and install bridges. The work can vary from just doing minor repairs (mild intensity) to ripping up the whole wood deck (which is held down by 8 inch spikes) and replacing and respiking the whole deck manually (which is hard work 8-10 hours long).

I am trying to put on some lean mass, so I was thinking more carbs during the intense work days might help me keep the weight on. Oh, and I'll probably increas my cals to about 4000 on my intense days.
Not too sure, just need some advice. Any would be great.

should I rearrange my micros maybe (on my intense days)?
Like 40-20-40 (pro-fat-carbs)
So 3500 cals breaking down to:
