    I use and have had great success with carb backloading for this very reason.

    I think it depends on your genetics. I have a very small frame for being 6'2. I'm under sized for sure. Gaining body weight over 205 doesn't increase my lifts much. A little bit, yes. But I get...

    Wow, that's a big drop. I've never had a drop that big in a week, even if I were to take carbs to zero. Everyone responds so differently to things, which makes this sport so interesting... and...

    If you are even in a slight...
