So I'm going to be starting my 8 week cycle with, , , , and / on Monday. will be used for the first 4 weeks switched out with TP the last 4 weeks. VERY excited for this stack! I want to get the most out of these next 8 weeks that I can, so am looking for some advice from the Elite.
My main goal is to shed BF and harden my muscles. I've been using Wendler's 5-3-1 for a couple months now and it seems to be a good program for any goal utilizing heavy weight on main compound exercises and high reps on accessory work. My main question is with my diet. I've stepped my calories down over the last couple weeks from bulking but haven't hit a strict mark yet. I'll follow my diet for 3-4 days getting close to 2000 kcals but the other days I still let myself take in more calories, around maintenance at 2500 kcals. Starting on monday though my diet will strictly be at 1900-2000 calories. I'm just not sure how I should set up my macros. Obviously I'll keep my protein high (over 1g/lb) but I suspect the supps I'm on will increase protein synthesis so should I increase protein even more? Or will it even matter since I'm cutting? And then there's carbs...i know carbs pushing water into the muscle is what gives it that full hard look, but if I want to cut fat then I need to keep carbs low, right? I've read so many conflicting opinions on this, I'd like to hear what the people I trust say about it-that's you guys ;-)
