    Harris Benedict equation/calculating calories


    What category of the equation would bodybuilding/powerlifting fall under? I am unsure if it qualifies as a sport or what value I should give it when making my maintanence calorie calculations.

    I use 1.55 to calculate my maintenance cals.

    Thats based on real world experience for me--using FITDAY daily and recording my weight a few times per week.
