    Year round recomp?


    I have read about doing a year round recomp as opposed to a bulk/cut cycle. Could someone please tell me how nutrition/training/supplementation is different when doing a recomp? What kind of gains could I see from doing this?

    you would stay around maintenance calories...a little above for slow lean gains, or a little below for slow cutting. over a year i'm sure you could get some pretty good results.

    I see. It seems that nutrition would have to be spot on because too many or too few calories would erase several days of correct calories. How does supplementation change while doing a recomp?

    supplementation really doesn't impact it all that significantly, neither does particulars of workout so far as i'm concerned. effectively what you'll be doing is a slow lean bulk. not sure what your "normal" bodyfat level is, but you will have a pretty hard time getting it more than 1 or 2 percent lower even over the span of a year if you are trying to add muscle too.

    yea when I say slow....the only time you should really look in the mirror is day 1 and day 365 to see what happened over a year. which is why most guys do a hardcore bulk...and then a hardcore cut.
