Tell me what your cutting calories, maintenance and bulking calories are
How long you bulk for
How much weight you gain
And if you know how much is LBM
I ask because I'm just starting bulking.
My cutting calories are <2100 at which I'll lose 1 lb a week
I seem to be able to maintain at about 2250-2350
now I'm bulking and hitting an avg of 2600 this week, but I'm not sure its enough and if not how high I should go, 3500+ seems excessive (and almost impossible if your eating clean, unless your a competitor)
I get tons of protein, in 2500 calories I can easily get 220g of protein, 75g of fat and about 250g of carbs, should this be adjusted at all? (more fat, less carbs?)
For supps I just take protein/carb shakes, fat, and have some glutamine I'm finishing up (dont think I'll use it again) and creatine kicks from time to time to get over plateaus
I'm 27 years old, 5'10, 180 and my bf is around 8-10% currently
and have been lifting on and off since I was 17.
I'd consider myself an intermediate to advanced lifter although I've never done any comps.
I have just completed my second WBB#1 schedule, lasted about 10 weeks, and have just started doing HST, this is the second time I've done an HST regime
But I'd like to bulk until late Dec and back on as much LBM as possible, so suggestions would be appreciated (preferably by people 22+ that have been lifting for at least 2 years, no offense to everyone else but I think knowlege comes with experience)
