EI dosing water changes and rest days

When do you guys do your waterchanges in relation to your rest day.

I do W/C on sunday.


Trying to decide if I should dose saturdays, do WC on sunday and have sunday also be my rest day.

Or

Not dose saturday to let plants soak up a bunch of stuff all day, Do WC sunday and then dose right after.


What do you guys do, and do any of you know what classic EI calls for?

rest, wc, dose.

That way the plants can use some of the leftovers on saturday. The other way leaves them starving on sunday.
