glycogen depleting exercises
 
Just read the article about holiday weight gain.

Can I do interval cardio instead of weights to help me deplete glycogen for Thanksgiving? I am limited in time and have cardio eqipment at home

yes, the longer the interval the more glycogen demanding it will be. 1' on/1' off would be killer.

Yeah, but it will be mostly leg glycogen depletion, unless you have some cool piece of cardio that allows you to brutally tax your upper and lower body simultaneously. Don't think one exists.

how about cardio and 100 pushups?

also the calories burned will just allow you to eat that much more

do some crossfit bullI need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post. where you do a 400M SPRINT ~ max RPE (not jog) then 100 pushups/situps/bw squats repeated 6 times. you will deplete glycogen quickly

depends on the workout, depends on your goals, depends on how much you refeed on thanksgiving, depends on when your next workout is.........i guess it depends...........i mean you CAN, but you can certainly deplete through lifting alone

What is your workout? If you're going to the gym and busting your I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post. with squats, pulls, lunges, whatever for the lower body, it doesn't make much sense to go back out the next day and sprint as hard as you can, especially a 400, which is probably the most demanding distance

When exactly do you plan on recovering if you're giving 100% effort every day? Just because it's not lifting weights doesn't mean it's not hard on your body.
