View Full Version : Carb cycling plan

If I had time, I would surely do a bulking phase for some months and then cut. But I don't have time. I have only 2 months left. I've been training for 2 months now, and have seen progress. I now have abs and chest muscles, unfortunately, they are not that visible because my body-fat is not low enough. I am at about 15%. My goal is to lose as much while gaining/maintaining muscles. I have no choice but to do carb cycling.

I train 5 days a week. 4 days I lift. 2 from those lifting days are for chest/upper body, and 2 for abs/lower body. I do 5 cardio sessions, out from which 3 are HIIT, and the other 2 are moderate cardio.

So, for the intense days (chest and upper body) it should be high carb, and low carb for abs and lower body. What about my days off? I am also raising my protein intake with chicken, meat, tuna, milk, nuts, etc.. and protein powder.

What should my diet be on rest days? Thank you!!
