    Not really bulking or cutting. But is this enough to gain some mass/strength?

    5'8, 155lbs.

    I just realized how noobish this question sounds...guess I've never really been exposed to "barely above maintenance" diets enough to tell if it's enough.

    It's either extreme in most cases...bulking or cutting.

    you are just going to see how your body reacts that that amount of calories. Everybody is different. I Lose weight on 3000 cals a day while some gain on that.

    Try eating 2/3 more calories than that. But do it cleanly, the benefits will be worth it.........

    Choosing an arbitrary number to not bulk or cut most likely won't work. If you start gaining weight on that much then pull it back, or if you lose push it up.

    figure out where you maintain and add another 500 cals to that
