View Full Version : cardio and bulking question
07-09-2007, 01:51 PM
at the moment i am slow bulking on 3300 calories a day and weigh about 162 at around 10%bf. I'm not doing any cardio at the moment but want to start playing tennis once a week for about 1.5/2 hours. If i were to start this how many calories would this burn and how much should i increase my caloric intake by? also, should i only increase the calories for the day i'm playing and keep the rest of the week at 3300? (i think not). thanks in advance

You won't be burning that many calories. I don't know the number, but even if I did it wouldn't be very accurate. Try eating an extra 200 calories and see if you keep gaining. If you don't then eat a little more.
You can easily get away with only eating it when you play tennis - drink a bottle or two of gatorade while you play and you're set. It's called carb cycling :)
