Eat a ton of protein...you will need it! I noticed my best gains in muscle and leaning out when I was doing less volume (not this program), Mon-Fri IF and eating a crap load of protein. Of course if you really want to pack on glycogen loads on the weekends with minimal pwo carb meals that should also add to muscle "size".

An interesting variation I played with was strength workouts Mon-Wed (split upper/lower compounds) w/ small pwo carb/protein and Fri full body complete depletion (glycogen) with high volume....and then a night of margheritas and steak, plus higher carb meals weekend lower protein (Basically a spin off Body Opus stuff). It worked pretty well....minus the hangovers and the $200 I spent at the strip club after the margheritas.

hey, so did this actually work for you? and could you be a bit more specific on what you ate, how you ate? it's a bit vague

How long ago was this thread? Shesh. Yes I could be specific....but I guess that's all you get for free.

I can't remember anything specific and probably eventually dropped all the metcons as I was burning out....but I think once I did that and got my pwo eating down to gluttony of carbs while protein/fat the other days...the gains were steady (I think it was like 10lbs in a month). I've since dropped my workout load since and leaned out more now. But if I was to go back, I'd just hit the weights 2x week with a mix of 5x5 to start and finish 3x10s with tons of pwo carbs (no sugars just food). Otherdays do lower intensity cardio/activity and IF with more protein/low carb and higher fats.
