3. Train during periods of carbohydrate restriction
WHAT is becoming clearer, is that when the body is not fully stored with carbohydrates (in the form of glycogen), fat-oxidation increases. On average a boxer will be able to store about 500g of carbs, but once this storage is full, any extra carbs are stored as fat. During periods of training, when this carb storage is sub-optimal (about half-full), fat oxidation increases during training.
