Lots of variables here. Depends on what your goals are, what compounds you're using, what type of training on cycle you're doing, etc.
For example if i was on test and tren, i'd be eating 1k over BMR for a lean bulk; remember without anabolics 500 cals above BMR is considered your basic level for lean gains.

Good point. My goals are adding lean mass and strength. I do a basic bodybuilding split, 5 days/ week, high volume w/2 days hiit cardio. Planning on going on helladrol 6 weeks.Originally Posted by Rhadam

For helladrol i'd eat about 500 cals over BMR. You're on the right track for some nice lean gains. If your already putting on nice lean mass at your current surplus level, maybe even increase that a few hundred cals. It's not a bad idea to see how the first 3 weeks go (should kick in by week 2). Then after the third week check your progress and play with the calories if needed.

Ok, no specific increase in protein? Or is this a compound that will not increase protein synthesis?Originally Posted by Rhadam

Ok, I am at 1.5g/lb protein right now...maybe I will increase to 1.75 on cycle and go from there. That would put me at 600-700 cals over maintenanceOriginally Posted by Rhadam

I haven't kept track of my macros and caloric intake in years. I just eat. When you're experienced enough with your diet then you know what to eat and when to eat it. If you're new to this then keep track of your food intake, adjust when needed, and grow. Everyone is different so you'll have to experiment with what works for you. If I ate 3000-3500cals a day I'd probably starve and lose 60lbs (no joke). What works for others is not what will necessarily work for you and your goals.

I've been doing this for years natty and feel much more comfortable when tracking than not. Last bulk I didn't track and ate way too much and gained too much bf.Originally Posted by TheDeadlifter
