"Carb Loading Alters Carb Storage
Ryan Andrews, Kent State University
Manipulation of carbohydrate intake after an intense exercise session can bring about numerous effects benefiting recovery. But can taking in more carbohydrates influence the amount of carbs you can actually store?
Researchers fed one group 0.7 g/kg carbs (a 176-lb man would get 56 grams) or 10 g/kg (a 176-lb man would get 800 grams) of carbs. This was done for two days following an intense session of training. The high-carb group stored about 300% more glycogen than the low-carb group. This may have been due to the fact that the high-carb group altered the amount of transporters on muscle cells, simply by increasing carb intake. Ahhh, the power of carbs.
thoughts... is this true or anybody experience that? that is a crap load of carbs. would doing this a few times increase your transporters on the muscle cells for good?
