    calories needed to bulk

    6'3"
    180lbs
    25 yrs old
    first test cycle (see signature)

    I need 2.8K-3K calories/day to maintain what I have.

    How many calories am I going to need to eat with my cycle?

    I have read as little at 3.5K and as much as 5K.

    Just looking to dial it in a little. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Deopends on how much fat your willing to gain with the muscle. I hate adding fat when bulking so I bulk at about 3700-4000(I'm 5'9 209 @ 10%) I could gain a lot more muscle with 5000, but fat would pile on as well.

    If, your looking for lean bulk, then I'd go with 500 cals above maintenance and increase the cals by 250 with every 10Lbs you put on.

    Pheedno- Helpful as always. Now I know why you are a "vet". That's an easy formula to follow. I'm less than 10%bf now, and I want to keep it that way!

    Thanks Bro
