Is there a reason it's not very frequently discussed on here?
I'm guessing it's because the people who want to gain lean mass are struggling to hit their daily macros without having the added inconvenience of only being able to eat carbs at a certain time.
My training split currently looks like this:
Monday at 17:45 - Workout A
Tuesday at 20:00 - Tag Rugby (30 minutes of quite intense sprinting)
Wednesday at 17:45 - Workout B
Thursday at 20:00 - Tag Rugby (30 minutes of quite intense sprinting)
Friday at 17:15 - Workout A
Saturday - Rest
Sunday - Rest
Then repeat, switching A and B.
I backload every day and follow the Carb Backloading diet (density bulking) to the letter.
Have always been up and down in weight due to a lack of strict monitoring of calories/macros - and also my habit of jumping on a plane to mainland Europe and spending a long weekend without really eating a lot...
Hoping that the structure of Carb Backloading, along with Starting Strength helps me to put on some good lean muscle.
Another little question I have is if the likelihood of newbie gains (ie... Linear Progression for quite a while) is hindered by me having trained on-and-off for a few years?
I'm not particularly strong - 5 rep max: bench = 65KG / squat = 75kg / Press = 42.5kg I can roll out an excuse ... I have very long arms which seems to mess with my bench press. The heaviest I have ever done is 80kg for 1 or 2 reps.
Bit of a mixed bag of a post... Sorry about that!
