View Full Version : First time bulking question

Tomorrow is going to be the first day of my bulk.. I was wondering how many calories over my tdee will I have to eat to gain muscle with little fat gains. I'm 123 lbs at 5"9 if that helps.

Look at gaining .5 - 1lb per week, so somewhere between ~250 - 500 over TDEE. Better to start low and evaluate over a few weeks.

If you really want to track calories go with 10% - 20% over TDEE.

However, at your age it's not necessary nor recommended.

Just eat a lot, lift as heavy as you can and try to gain 3 - 4 lb per month.

There's no formula for 15 year olds, just eat and stay active. Enjoy the growth spurts.
