Hey everyone, I was curious to see if anyone had any experience with an idea I had thought up. Im a 5"11 143 pound male, training 4x a week doing gymnastic work and light leg work. On top of that I do acrobatics 3 times a week, which is usually light or moderate intensity, each class is an hour long and done in groups. On top of that I do my own movement work and generally just keep active each day, and I am looking to increase my movement work using principals from ido portal and movnat. I am not looking to "bulk" up but I definitely want to fuel for performance and also make sure I have enough calories coming in that my body can put on mass. Ive been trying to get in 4000 calories a day. The problem is that with the way my schedule is realistically ill eat 3 solid meals, and my acrobatics classes are in the evening so I have to finish my meals by max 5. By the time im home its way too late and I cant reasonably eat else id finish right before bed time and eating before sleep screws up my sleep hard. Eating so much in 3 meals really knocks me out, it can fatigue me quite a lot making it hard for me to even want to move. So the idea I had was to eat more reasonably on the days I have acrobatics classes, eat a bit more on the days I don't have classes, and then on weekends make up the calorie difference by eating very large amounts such as 5500-6000 calories. In my mind the excess energy that's not being used on that day would go towards fat stores, which I would then tap into during the week due to the lower calorie consumption, creating a nice cycle which in my head kind of would be what our ancestors did also....a lot of activity with little food followed by a kill and eating a large amount of food. Thoughts?
