    I'm currently 155 pounds, my basal is 1,800 (23 years old, moderate activity during the day)

    I do about 45 minutes to 1 hour (sometimes 1.5 hours) of cardio (160 bpm) 6 days a week.

    im probably going to do a 30 30 40 pfc split with protein being 1.2 g x 155.

    my bf% is around 10-11% estimate. i want to bulk to hit 160-165 as cleanly as possible with gaining minimal bf.

    i was told 3,000 - 3,500 cals? does this sound correct?

    depends on how quickly you want to bulk.

    how tall are you?

    i really like to run plus right now im cutting and i eat a lot of cals so i make up for it by running a lot. plus i am really building up my endurance.







    edit: should i stop or lower my cardio during bulking? i guess i could just eat more right?

    that much cardio is going to make it harder to bulk
