Re: Priming any of you guys do it
Don't know about creating an 'anabolic environment', but he's essentially describing carb loading.
Carb loading doesn't just involve eating lots of carbs. You go low carb for about 2 to 3 days, including a low intensity endurance session to deplete further, then you go high carb (I usually just do one day prior to an event, but some ramp up depending on the duration).
Yes, you feel amazing during and after the load, and you also perform great and lift great and look more defined as your muscle fill up on glycogen and water, but does it improve muscle gain?
