    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). Anyways, I was just wondering what I should do with my carbs?


    Here is my basic diet info:

    -Wake-

    Carb/Pro (Breakfast)

    Fat/Pro

    Fat/Pro

    Fat/Pro (Dinner)

    -Weights-

    PWO (carb/pro)

    PPWO (carb/pro)

    Pro/Fat

    -Bed-

    This is a basic example of my diet.

    This breaks down to be about 3500 cals a day.
    And my macros are:
    45 - 25 - 30
    pro- fat – carb

    Oh yeah and
    230lbs
    6’4”
    10% b.f.

    So I am wondering if I should increase my carbs on my intense days? Should I eat my fat/pro through the day and once the day is over eat some complex carbs and protein? Should I eat them more constantly throughout the day (but not increase my total for the day)? Should I keep my diet the same?


    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.

    Thanks.

    Oh, and my 3500 cals breaks down to be:

    394g protein
    97g fat
    263g carbs

    But if I bumped it up to 4000 cals then it would be:

    450g protein
    110g fat
    300g carbs

    should I rearrange my micros maybe (on my intense days)?

    Like 40-20-40 (pro-fat-carbs)

    So 3500 cals breaking down to:

    350g pro
    78g fat
    350g carbs

    or 4000 cals breaking down to:

    400g pro
    89g fat
    400g carbs
