I'm a little confused by that also Jason.

It seems that the part you quoted applied to endurance athletes (makes sense), but then moves into recommendations for resistance training with no actual figures given.

~198 lbs = 90 kg. 720 grams of CHO/day = 2880 calories. Maintenance calories assuming 1 hour of exercise/day would be somewhere around 15*198= 2970 cal/day. You're right. At the bottom end of that you'd be at approx 97% carbohydrate diet. Which makes no sense what so ever.
