    Quick help with MACROS for bulking


    Hey fellas I will start my bulk in a little over two months and I'm just trying to get a head start on my diet. I did way 260, yeah 260, but dropped to 190 for a bb comp. For the time being (pre-Nov 1st) I'm going to maintain this current weight 190-195 while trying to add strength. My current macros are P/C/F 314/66/21 @~1500-1700 calories/day. Just wondering what my macros should look like if I am looking to bulk to 220 by March while staying fairly lean. I am just thinking that will do the same thing I am doing just add more carbs. Thanks for the help guys. AM has helped me achieve my goals and even helped me surpass those goals.

    The biggest thing is I want it to be clean. I've ventured down the dirty bulk darkside and it isn't fun. Obviously 30 pounds in ~4 months will be primarily fat when staying natty but I'd like 5-10 lbs muscle.
