I thought it was interesting what Greg had to say about carbs in the Weightlifting Nutrition article in this months PM. From what I can gather there isn't much need for a PWO carb spike because of the insignificant muscle glycogen demand. This of course is in regards to weightlifting where the sets rarely exceed 3 reps.

My question is; where does that demand becomes significant? I'm currently training SS and have started to drop the PWO carbs for just lean protein and copious amounts of veggies. My Pre-WO fast ending meal is pretty huge and is the main source of my caloric intake. Because of the digestive nature of fats and proteins I can only assume that my body is still digesting and absorbing the food I ate as far as 2 hours earlier, which in turn would help with recovery from the demands I put on it during my workout...
Healthy body sick mind...
