    Quick question about non-workout days


    Do you generally consume ~400-500 less calories on non-workout days since those extra calories aren't being burned from exercise?

    Yes, but I think of it differently. I consume 400 calories MORE on workout days. I eat the same meal schedule as my non-workout days, except I throw in an additional post work out Whey+Dextrose(Powerade) shake, which comes to around 400 calories.

    Wouldnt you need the calories just as much on non workout days to repair and rebuild the muscle.

    This assumes that you are already eating Maintenance + 500 calories on off days also. (during a slow bulk)

    For example: I need 2700 calories to maintain my mass. I usually eat 3200 calories a day during a bulk, and I add an additonal 400 calories on my workout days as a post workout shake.
