    OFF day and NUTRITION

    How much do you typically reduce your cals/carbs on OFF days? Granted, the PW shake is removed, but aside from that, evening carbs or carbs in general removed?

    What if you did a cardio seesion in the am, and then the rest of the day was off? Carbs in first meal only?

    Does anyone do any core strength training on their off days in the PM? Maybe light cardio, followed by swiss ball exercises, bridges, abs, calves, etc in the PM, still have a good carb meal post?

    Much thanks to all.

    Why would carbs be bad on an off day? Your muscles take longer than 24hr to repair and cabrs help repair. Just make sure your cals are lower so that your 500 below maintenance.

    Ummm, I believe you have help here already and you have another thread a few pages long in which you had it all ironed out, correct?

    In addition, the stickies atop the page SHOW one how to distribute carbs on "off" days whether you are bulking or cutting, and if I remember correctly you used those to base your approach on.

    I'm a bit busy at the moment, thank you.

    The man does "sell" diets for a living. Don't see how he's feed his kids if just gave them out!

    I don't mind helping out, no, but man his OCD is full swing these days. Same questions, many forums, repetitive stuff, etc. If he took time to read/research he'd find all his answers. If he wants to pay someone for all the guesswork to be taken out, whether it's me or not, that is an option of course.

    However, I am currently full as of now.
