    Clean vs. dirty doesn't have a well defined meaning.

    Start by adding 300 to that. Allow 1 week for your weight to settle at the new calorie level (you will gain some weight due to extra glycogen, water and food in transit). After that, adjust as...

    Yes. You don't need to pile weight on, go for maybe 1-2lbs a month and focus primarily on progressive overload (increasing number of reps for a give weight - or increasing weight)

    Anything can aggravate a pre-existing condition. I can't say more than that. If you can't recover and start building up like any other novice to weight training then you will have to get advice from...

    I wouldn't bother. You'll notice nothing in that timescale, especially if you've already been training a lot. The most you can do is some high rep pump stuff to increase glycogen retention.

    Keep gaining until you feel uncomfortable with BF levels. Bear in mind you will have clothes pretty much all the time if it's as cold where you are as it is here. You aren't going to stray more than...

    The reason MFP is so far off is because it makes assumptions about people's BF% - so at 270lbs it thinks you have the lean muscle mass of Arnie. Of course your TDEE is nothing like that, probably...

    Whey is from dairy poducts... yogurt contains whey and casein. Casein is a pretty good protein too which of course contains a broads spectrum of amino acids just like whey.

    I ran it recently before messing with a strength routine for a while. I am deloading this week and will run it again after Christmas.

    If the resistance is the same, the risk is the same. If you can do (say) 30 pushups. Then in order to make a comparison, you need a similar exercise like bench pressing - and you need to choose a...

    Are you assuming that muscle damage is the cause of hypertrophy? It is not - and in fact excessive muscle damage may impede hypertrophy.
