Makes perfect sense. In my case I'm mich smaller and more recomping vs bulking so im able to keep carbs lower and I train in the evening but your approach is exactly what I'd doThat was a rough plan I outlined without knowing specifics but for optimal results you would want/need to add a few things in. Obviously no one should just copy it exactly without knowing their body so it should just be used as a guild line and they can add/subtract amounts if needed. If Cinder trained really late for example he wouldn't need any carbs before bed the night before. That was recommended more if he trains earlier on but it wouldn't hurt either way. Obviously fats would be high on Sunday and moderate on T/T/S to compensate for the carb amounts. I gave the 400g amount because Cinder obviously needs a lot of carbs to grow. He has been over 250 before and I believe 5ft 8 but sure I don't know any details so it was just a ballpark figure.
For someone who can take higher carbs 400g is nothing too excessive but sure that could be changed depending upon the person. I would still recommend a decent amount of carbs on those 3 off days for someone really trying to push size. The lantus alone would really help shuttle those high carbs on training days. Anyone who is following such a protocol should be taking insulin sensitizers on well everyday but especially on their moderate and off days. That 1 day off carbs alone (combined with the moderate days and supplementation) would make a massive difference for sensitivity if it's adhered to every week.
I also think for someone who responds well to high carbs they don't have to overdo fats (still have a good amount) so I wouldn't be taking away say 600g carbs (200g total that day) and replacing all of those 2400 calories with fats on 3 lower days. Now that can work for many people but I am going from some of his posts from the past and the fact his carb days are so high but either way could work just fine. I would personally keep carbs moderate on his 3 "off" days and have them low on just 1 day per week. Now for a guy who eats high fats most of the year things would be different and 400g would definitely not be considered moderate for those people but when you are pushing 800g+ carbs 3 days per week backing down to 400g is a big difference. I would also recommend some form of GDA on the moderate days when not using slin and on the 1 higher fat day something to help process all those fats (ox bile through the day for example).
