Post-Workout Carb Relativity
Does anyone else taper their post-workout carb amounts based on the muscle you train? In other words, do you drop the amount of dextrose you add to your post-workout shake if you have a lighter training session such as arms?
I recently started doing this myself. If I train arms, I only have about 50 grams of carbs in my post-workout shake. Whereas, if I train legs, I'd bump my carbs up to 100 grams.
Haven't been doing this long enough to really measuse its effects, but curious to know if anyone else has tried this for an extended period of time (say at least 2 months)? Notice any difference?

if i've been training legs i often throw in an extra pro/carb meal after my PPWO Meal
other than that i keep it pretty much the same
although i dont use dex any more

Best thing to do is try to train the same amount of overall muscle mass each session.

i usually match up my smaller muscles w/the larger ones so i dont end up with a weak day. but sometimes i will change it up and do shoulders and abs or something. those days i have whole food carbs instead of dex.

I pretty much stay the same no matter what group i am training, might look into switching it a bit later.
