    confused on BMR

    Ok so I read the thread on bulking cycle
    and got to step two
    it says
    If you are Sedentary - little or no exercise
    Calorie-Calculation = BMR X 1.2
    - If you are Lightly Active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week)
    Calorie-Calculation = BMR X 1.375
    - If you are Moderately Active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week)
    Calorie-Calculation = BMR X 1.55
    - If you are Very Active = BMR X 1.725 (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days/week)
    Calorie-Calculation = BMR X 1.725
    - If you are Extra Active (very hard daily exercise/sports & physical job or 2X day training)
    Calorie-Calculation = BMR X 1.9

    I work out 5 times in eight days ( id ont like to limit myself to work out on certain days)
    I do
    Day 1
    chest calves
    day 2
    back traps
    day3
    shoulders abs
    day 4
    arms
    day 5
    upper legs, abs
    usually about
    16 sets per body part

    rest 3 days
    I dont do much cardio to speak of
    I dont have a physical job
    so which calculation should I use

    I would go with Moderately Active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week)
    Calorie-Calculation = BMR X 1.55.
    Then add about 250 kcal for bulking and make adjustments from there.

    i agree go with moderate, but add 500 a day for bulking, not 250

    If you're working out 5 times a week, I'd go with Active. I feel moderate would apply more to a casual workout type person. That's just my opinion.
