    Looks pretty decent. Only thing I would do, bulking or not, is to not mix fatty meats w/high (or even "low") glycemic carbs, as fat storage is not my ideal scenario on bulking. I'd center more of my carbs before/after working out, and utilize the other parts of the day for fats/proteins. Perhaps some carbs at meal 1 while keeping fat low there would work since u are bulking. Many think carbs are the answer to bulking, but when excess carbs are converted to nothing but fat, that most certainly is NOT the case.

    thanks bro...you think maybe high carb meal 1 and 6, and maybe a few at meal 4 about hour before workout would be enough...then cut from others..?

    Yup! But meal 1 doesn't need to be "high" carb, as there is only so much you'll utilize at that time. Better to have more centered around the workout before/after.

    That's good to know. So if we workout at night we should consume our carbs before and after training and not much else during the day? How long before and after training should we have the carbs?

    Thanks

    You can have some on off days, but you're going to want to have your diet laid out to see how many other macros you are taking in. It'll also depend on the kind of diet you want to run, and how far you are away from your goals.

    Take advantage of certain time slots of the day to have your carbs. The morning is okay since your metabolism is heightened and you spent the last 6 hrs or so fasting. At least an hour before you train is a another good time since most of the carbs will be utilized for energy. The best time is of course is immediately following an intense workout since your glycogen levels are depleted. And lastly, the first and second hour of the 2 hr window of opportunity is important as your body is reved up and ready to restore your muscles. Of course this is all arbituary though as everyone responds differently, so like everything esle in bodybuilding...you need to experiment and see for yourself what works best.
