Fast Fact: Carb Loading & Saturating Glycogen Stores For Peak Performance

Carb loading is a technique used to enhance muscle glycogen stores before long-term aerobic endurance exercise. The most effective regimen is three days of a high carb diet in conjunction with tapering exercise the week before competition and complete rest the day before the event. 600 grams of carbohydrate per day or 8 to 10 grams per kilogram body weight should increase muscle glycogen stores 20-40% above normal.
