comment How much glycogen is burned in weightlifting?
Although not bad, this answer didn't quite cover it for me. I agree that the only real empirical way to get to an answer is through the use of some invasive sampling that I am not interested in undergoing. I also agree there is no need to refuel during workouts, and in all honesty, if I tried to do that I would likely throw-up. What I'm really looking for is a way to estimate the usage so I can make sure I replenish what I use adequately without eating more than I need and thus storing as fat instead of glycogen. My glycogen stores need replenishment but my fat stores are way full already.

@Meade - I read your first link. I'm not convinced that 50-65% of caloric burn rate as glycogen is correct, but only because the article only refers to this in reference to work at a certain heart rate. How do we know this same range applies to weightlifting? - Also, your second link you reference in your comment didn't come through.

So how do you figure out the amount used? If you do a 1.5 hour workout with the majority of the work being 60-90% of 1RM, say 15-20 sets of 1-5 reps mostly and 2-3 minutes rest in between. Talking full body work - mainly snatches, clean & jerks, some variation of squats. Is there a standard way this can be calculated or estimated?

Yes, question is about amount of glycogen burned during. Intend to use as guide to replenishment needs after though.
