jenna Posted November 5, 2012 Share Posted November 5, 2012 Hi there, I have the ISWF book and have read the section on athletes. My question is about post workout fueling for strength training only. The chart regarding carbohydrate intake in the book is geared towards high intensity exercise. Some days I do strength training only - for example, tomorrow I have a 5x5 heavy back squat as well as push press, pendlay rows, and jerks. It's not a timed workout, so I don't know if it would qualify as high intensity training. However, anytime there is a 5x5 back squat involved, it really does take a lot out of your body. My question: To add carbs Post workout if only strength training had been done that day? My warm-up always does include about 7 minutes of row "sprints" - not all out but enough to get me sweating and breathing hard, that's for sure. I'm leaning towards adding the carbs as I am relatively lean (~18%bf) though not as lean as I would like BUT I am also battling some self-described "adrenal fatigue" and wanting to keep my carbs up for that. What would you all recommend? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
