Recomp - calorie intake opinions

  1. Recomp - calorie intake opinions

    3years training experience, began at 155lbs.

    Training 3x per week with one of Rippetoe's intermediate programs. I've been eating 3000kcal on 'rest' days & 3500kcal on 'lift' days. This eating schedule has netted me an average weight gain of 1.6lbs every 2 weeks (for the past 10 weeks).

    I would now like to shift my intake more toward recomp. Deficit on rest days, Surplus on lift days, etc... attempt to simultaneously burn fat/build muscle. You know the drill.

    Looking for advice on setting my daily intakes.

    I'd say dropping by 400 cals both days will probably get you right about there

  4. i came off a bulk and am moving toward recomp.

    i started at 3500 and dropped 100 cals a week. i'm at 2900 this week, next week will be 2700-2800 and i'm thinking about doing a pyramid every few days, or weekly
