I am currently trying to bulk and gain some weight and had a question about how many calories i should take in. I work outside all day doing landscaping and construction and know that it takes a lot of calories doing that and was wondering how many calories i shoukld consume a day.

start with 15 cals per pound of bodyweight and work up from there if your not gaining......i personally dont count calories while bulking just eat a boat load of protein and throw in enough healthy carbs to fuel my workouts and gain solid weight...good luck with the bulking

I'd say your near 2700-3000 for maintenance.

3200-3500 for bulking. Everyone's different tho, you should find your maintenance level first.

Hows your metabolism?

For me my maintenance is around 2300, and i'm not that big or too active.
