Hi everybody. This is Kiefer from DangerouslyHardcore.com.

And today’s tip about Carb Back-Loading or Carb Nite for that matter really has to deal with HIIT Training and HIIT Intervals. And this is for women. How women should use HIIT. One huge question that comes along is particularly with Carb Nite – Can you do HIIT every night?

There is people out there who are pretending to be experts, saying that you should only do HITT if for the day after your Carb Nite or two days after. And that’s true for men. Men – If you are going to do a HIIT cycle, you should save it for Sunday and Monday if you’re Carb Back-Loading on Saturday.

For women though, you have the strange system that I don’t really fully understand yet neither do science – but you tend to hold on to your glycogen stores. So, you can do HIIT every day of the week if you feel like it until you feel like absolute dirt. When you get on that bike and you get through your second or third HIIT Cycle, and you’re just totally wiped out and dead, and you feel like you can’t go on, that’s when you should stop doing your HIIT during the week. It doesn’t matter what time of the day: First thing in the morning is best. Before your workout session is also excellent. Even after your workout session with Carb Nite.

Carb Back-Loading, you want to try to implement that before your training session. That will help stimulate mTOR receptors and spark muscle growth or prevent you from losing muscle as you lean down.

Alright, that’s the first thing as quick tips, leading us to Christmas. And, I’ll be back later today with another one for men.
