Lets see your exact training style / routine, exercises and reps, and your daily meal plan and supplementation.

Then we can address this issue

Off the top of my head, it could be fat loss and/or water loss. If your training is really intense this could definitely be happening. When you weigh yourself can have an impact as well.

But yeah, like Carnage said some more info will definitely be helpful. Specifically regarding diet and training.

I think the fact that you are only taking in 3750 cals on your training days and then lowering your carbs on rest days has everythign to do with it. Why are you on a carb cycling diet when your trying to gain weight? Start by adding 500 cals from carbs. When you stop gaining weight add another 500 cals from carbs. Id say your dropping alot of water weight due to the low carbs. Ive never trained for strongman but event training involves alot of cardio and your going to burn alot of calories doing that. Most pro strongman are taking in 8000 plus calories. I Think carnage would like too see all of your meals written out not just your macro breakdown.

It seems as if you are going for the high fat low carb approach. In my personnel opinion this is not the best way to go abotu gaining mass becuase it is carbs that give you energy and convert to glycogen to fill your muscles. Plus you have to rely on carb up days to replenish glycogen levels, and people never seem to get those days right (i am one of them). Id suggest lowering your fat levels and replacing them with carb sources such as yams, rice, whole wheat breads. Dont mix fats and carbs in the same meals and dont take in carbs after 7:00pm. Also make sure you take in carbs pre workout, and take in more carbs post workout. My day tends to look like this:
Protien+carb
Protien +fat
Preeworkout protien and carb
Postworkout protien and carb
protien and veggies
protien and veggies
