You could do a carb up once a week if you want to give it a shot....or every workout (which would have to be smaller meals and I wouldn't advise as I think you get more bang for the buck with 1-2 loads, like a body opus approach, as you can still keep lean). However I would watch how often and how much you do....as you can lower sensitivity if done too much every week. Strength reps can be done on almost ketogenic diets.
Play around...see what happens. Best case you learn something more about how you respond to different protocols and eating....worst case you take no action and learn nothing. There are many ways to get strong and size.....and none of them start with "more research". You have a good base of knowledge, now time to apply and adjust....you may discover your own way that works.
