Hey all you T-people!
Am needing some advice. Am getting ready to head back home for the summer, and will continue my ART therapy there (I am a college student, btw). Anyway, as someone that really cares about nutrition and physique (as I think we all do around here on the T-forums), I was needing some advice. After the long layoff due to my injury, i have lost some mass, and am interested in gaining some of it back. I’m not interested in an all out bulk per se, but perhaps a slow bulk of perhaps .3 to .5 lbs per week. To give an idea, i’m 5’10", about 150 lbs. I’m about 11-12% bf currently. Anyway, here is my dillema. My doc told me i should focus on high rep/low weight for the summer to make sure i’m healed properly. So, herein lies the dillema. With limitations to my set/rep scheme, would it still be advisable to go on a really slow bulk to add some mass (I am still working the muscle to failure or near failure on the high rep scheme). Also, could you help me figure approximately how many cals I should be getting if I decided to slow bulk. Right now, about 1800-1900 maintains my weight given my activity level, which will increase slightly since school is out and i’ll be on my feet more.
Any advice from any PT or licensed Dr’s or practitioners would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all of your help. Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. God Bless!
