    How do you know if you have a fast metabolism?

    As the title says...How do you know if you have a fast metabolism?...I am 145 pounds and have been eating 3300 calories (clean). With this amount I am gaining about .5 pounds per week, Is 3300 alot for my weight? Does this mean that I have a fast metabolism? I read people bulking with way less than 3000 cals and they are taller and heavier than me. How do you know if you have a fast metabolism?

    if you can eat ALOT of anything and not put on weight... that should let you know you have a fast metabolism and 3300 cals for your weight is perfect if your gaining .5 pounds a week..... anyone heavier than you BULKING on under 3000 is not really ideal in most cases im a lil over 150 and am currently bulking on around 4000 with no fat gains so far...

    cardio has nothing to do with it...and is in fact counter productive when you are trying to bulk. (Unless you eat the amount of cals you burned with your cardio session)

    people who start bulking and are lean to begin with tend to have leaner gains

    cardio would burn off some of his extra cals and/or fat..it depends on how much he is actually gaining since none of it is fat

    agreed it can be counterproductive, but not if done in excess. i dont think it will hurt gains too much and will actually help when bulking if you want to keep fat gains minimal. also i think a little cardio is worth it when bulking if you want to keep your cardiovascular system in good shape..also so when it comes time to cut again youre not in as bad shape haha

    I'm trying to figure out my metabolism speed too. I just started bulking at 3k a few days ago. Im just going to measure myself once a week, and adjust calories if i dont see the scale budge (maybe 50-75 calories)

    I guess that explains why I have to eat so much to gain weight. I do HIIT cardio 3 times per week to minimize fat gains

    when you are bulking you are wasting your time if you do cardio whether hiit or liss. Bulking is using excess calories to build muscle...not by reducing calories through cardio (which also works your muscles)

    With all due respect, posts that you make like this one make me question your relationship with food.

    "I do cardio so I can eat more when I'm BULKING."

    See the problem there?

    i don't see the problem with this. cardio, unless really intense, will not do squat for weight loss. doing cardio so one can eat more whether bulking or cutting makes perfect sense.

    If you can do a fullbody five times a week you simply aren't pushing yourself enough in each session in my opinion.

    After my leg day for example I can hardly walk for at least 24 hours.

    Try cutting it down to at MOST 3 times a week. I think a fullbody 2 times a week is optimal.

    More lean muscle tissue=faster metabolic rate, bodyfat % plays a big role as well as genetic factors. I diet for a show on above 3000 kcal, and can't gain weight right now on 5400.

    x2
    full body --> rest days every other day
    If you like working out more, split your workouts into individual body parts so each body part has adequate rest

    No, you aren't wasting your time doing cardio if you're bulking. The benefits of cardio are obvious, and as long as the person who is bulking and doing cardio is replacing the calories they burned with the cardio then they are fine. They can bulk and gain weight yet still reap the benefits of doing cardio.
