OFF DAY Nutrition?

  1. OFF DAY Nutrition?


    Ill make it simple as I can, I lift 3x a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Currently bulking, (4500 cals a day).

    Now, this is where im confussed, should I keep the cals that high on OFF days? I hear mixed opinions, some say to LOWER them since your not lifting to help minimize fat gain, while others say keep them HIGH because your growing on off days, and they will help feul your workout days.

    Opinions?

    Depends really if you NEED the fuel to grow or if you have enough with your 4500 on lifting days.
    Are you still making gains?
