View Full Version : Nutrition while injured.

So I just injured my lower back while squatting. I had been bulking for about a month, having started at about 15% body fat, about 15.5% or so at the moment.

Since I won't be doing any proper lifting for a while, would cutting right now be a terrible choice? Meaning would I lose a significant amount of muscle compared to what I'd lose if I were to eat at maintenance until I started training again?

Considering you only bulked for a month, you did not gain much muscle mass, so i would recommend you eat at maintenance and get all your macros in check.
When you get back to lifting, continue bulking

One can do a significant amount of training without stressing a lower back injury. Just don't perform movements that hurt it, such as with the stabilization of machines or seated exercises.
