    i put it at +25% of my BMR
    and on non workout days -5%

    does my protein intake seem spot on?

    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...

    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..

    Agree with you, but I'll try it out at -5% and after a week I'll adjust the values.

    Thanks for the input guys, I implemented my original plan, but kept non workout days at +0% after 3 weeks I went from 76.4kg to 77.3kg which is a pretty steady gain to me.
