I just found this website, and it has so much awesome information. I have a few simple questions and was hoping to get some advice.
My current situation I have lifted on and off for 7-8 years doing basic bodybuilding stuff, with my body weight fluctuating.
I’m 5’8 220.2
I recently found the Strongman 5x5 routine and have fallen in love with it and have deiced to continue training in power lifting. When I began the training in January I was 238lbs. As of today I am 220.2 lbs. I had cut my calories to roughly 1200 a day. But now that I’m more into the powerlifting aspect and think its something I’d like to get more into, should I continue to cut weight? Or being to eat more and gain weight? I’m not trying to look all cut.( I understand the common misconception about people thinking powerlifters eat everything all the time.)
So any advice would be greatly appreciated.
