    Question lean bulking on 5/3/1 help


    I'm following the 5/3/1 routine to the tee and am most interested in strength gains but I'm also interested in leaning out my gut and gaining size in the right places. What diet should I be following? I've already cut down to 4000 calories from 5000 and 400+ grams of protein. Any ideas?

    Follow whatever diet you'll stick with for an extended period of time.

    Then you're eating too much. It's not that complicated.

    Getting fat? Eat less.
    Want more mass? Eat more

    The macros are something that you'll have to play with and they vary from person to person due to genetics, lifestyle, training, etc. If you want to cut some weight, then buy a Prowler and use it 3x/week.

    I recentl read that its better to go lighter on cals protein and carbs on ur off days. Is this true? For example can I do 4000 cals, 400+ protein on workout days. And then on off days cut to 3500-3800 cals and 350-400 pro? And is it ok to use this template for lean bulk.

    Experiment dude. Like he stated before, it's all relative to the individual.
