    My gym has both a Smith and a regular bench but the regular bench goes unused most of the time.

    I disagree.

    You DO want to add calories but you'll have to cut for a longer period of time if you eat a lot of fat.

    They had the opposite effect on me. They always gave me the runs. Now, boot camp food is another story. I had to go to medical because I couldn't poop for 1.5 weeks.
