It's a special technique in which you taper your training one or more days before a race, whilst increasing your intake of carbohydrates.
In the week prior to your event consume a high-carbohydrate intake with a reduced training volume. This strategy helps you maximise your energy stores before the competition. This is between 8g and 10g of carbohydrates per kg of bodyweight.
Glycogen is stored in the muscles together with water. So if you've effectively compensated your glycogen stores you'll naturally be a bit heavier because of the extra water you're carrying.
