hi, this is my first time posting but ive being lurking for awhile now. First an introduction. I am an 18 year old student from the sun cancer capital of the world, Queensland, Australia. I have being wieght training for sports on and off for since i was 13 (typical huh) but recently became near obsessed with lifting.For the last 10 weeks i have being following the T-Dawg 2.0 diet and have made excellent progess. I have lost 30lbs, and am now floating around 10%bf.
On to the question. I know weigh 176lbs, and want to gain some serious mass and was wondering if i should just jump straight into a hypocaloric diet (like Massive Eating) or should i slowy up the calories each week until i get to the required amount.
Also i was reading an old Appetite For Construction, and JB (am i allowed to do that??) refers to some research that basically states the leaner you are the more muscle you will gain compared to fat on a hypocaloric diet. So should i continue dieting and get to 8% bf then start gaining to optimise this effect or just start now. Thanks in advance.
