Thanks for the great info. The goal is to actually lean muscle mass, and eventually bridge into a cutting phase later in the program.
Here are my current stats.
Training Experience: 4 years on and off. Mainly powerlifting, squats, and deads.
Front Squat: 235
Increase weight to 185lbs
Decrease body fat% from 10-7%
Develop better physique symmentry
I will start this program monday. I will also begin with this supplement regime monday also.

The main problem is I’m still on the fence on what diet to use. I would like to stay lean, so I really don’t want to get on the “Massive Eating series diet”, and I really don’t need a huge fat-loss diet too. Especially if I only want to drop 3-4% in body fat.
I will look into the Velocity or T-Dawg diet. And see if any of those would be better.
Any more recommendations would be welcomed!
On the fence is the key word. Exactly how long are you looking to do this program. If your talking about several months to a year then I would say do a somewhat slow bulk, slightly increase your calories every week.Once you feel that your at the weight you wanna be at,start decreasing your calories.
The thing is that your talking about gaining 12 pounds and losing 3% body fat pretty much at the same time. Unless your a complete newbie and by your post I assume your not then I wouldn’t think the T-Dawg is gonna put on much weight at all.
