oops! sorry about that! 23
3500 seems like alot but then again i have a low bmr.....
i put it at +25% of my BMR
and on non workout days -5%
does my protein intake seem spot on?
(i was taking 300+g before)
Well 300 is overkill but 230 is fine....i would up carbs on off days because you are still growing/recovering
i had to actually reduce the amount i'm taking, from 4kg breasts a week to only 2kg, easier on the stomach, and the wallet.
then bump t up again on a cut.
I use no more than 200g even in a deficient at 170-180lbs.... At a certain point high amounts of protein wont maintain or build any more muscle than lower amounts, of course this reflects my dieting regiments...
Won't maintain or build any money in your wallet too eh? Hehe how was the muscle gain/retention at that level?
I just have to see and find out then, but the recomp and strength gains on 300 a day were amazing! But I'm slowly realizing how much is wasted..
If you're on a bulk I wouldn't reduce the calories at all
Agree with you, but I'll try it out at -5% and after a week I'll adjust the values.
i tend to eat even more on off days... Makes no sense to me to drop near 1k cals on your off days, but thats just me
