Concerning your Recent Training and Diet article, you seemed, on the 2nd phase, to back load some carbs? Was this only on training days? Do you feel this is more important to do the night after hard training (for recovery purposes), or the night prior to hard training (to fuel the next days workout), or both? Thoughts? If one were on a low carb diet, but wanted to add in some to better allow for strength gains, which scenario would you recommend? Thanks.

I would eat the carbs only post training because that is when the insulin sensitivity of the muscle cells is highest. You will have plenty of glycogen stores still remaining for whatever training you are doing. It takes much more than a day or so of low/no carbs to deplete your glycogen stores.
