I have used MAG-10 with good success in the past but can’t seem to hang on to the gains for long. I have used M and Tribex as suggested but never hold the gains. What techniques have you guys used to maintain you gains?
Keep eating big for a couple weeks. Not as much as when on but above main. k/cals. Then atleast a few more at your new main. k/cals. Remember that u need to adjust main. K/cals after gains. That is what has worked for me. I am 1 month out of Mag 10 cycle and havent lost gains and have added more since. So it has worked for me. jst my $0.02.
- Recalculate maintenance calories based on your newly acquired LBM.
- Eat about 300 or so calories above maintenance. You cannot eat as much as when you were on.
- Up your dietary fat and lower your carbs. This assumes however, that you dropped fat, and upped carbs while on. Try to get approximately equals amounts of polys/monos/sats.
- Lower your training volume and train HEAVY. Something like Ripped, Rugged, and Dense would be a good idea.
do you still calculate maintenance calories as 15*LBM?
