I’m on TRT and I’ll be starting a blast of 500mg test c/wk for 12 weeks and I need some advice with regard to calorie intake for the blast.
Cals - Training day - 3500
Rest day - 3000
Carbs - 350-380
Pro - 280-300
Fat - 95-120
*the above is an average taken from training days
I finished a successful 10 week diet about 7 weeks ago where I got to about 8% bf (I don’t like to put a number to it but I’d say I was about 8 weeks out from contest leanness) I have since been reverse dieting gradually adding calories and getting the metabolism back to where it needs to be. In doing so I feel I’ve put myself into a good position for some ‘lean gains’ in the following 12 weeks.
What I would like to know is; how many calories would you add and when? What would this look like in terms of macros?
I was originally thinking to start at 3800 TD, 3300 Rest day from week 1. Since protein is probably at its limit for me I was planning on making these up with added carbs, thoughts?
My dilemma is that I want to make the most from the blast but I would also like to avoid unnecessary fat gain. Some of which, I’m sure, is inevitable.
Any insight is welcomed.
