    2. Yes, I understand. I didn't include enough info in my original post. What I meant was that SLDLs allow for rounding the back, but the weight is a lot lower. I am more comfortable with this because...

    Fierce 5 Novice Exercise Questions

    I did a search for the keywords in my questions and couldn't find answers some of these, or I was unclear about the answers.

    But I'm about to start fierce 5. I will begin my bulk cycle and fierce...

    Do you usually get salads or something at these restaurants? Every time I go to a restaurant, I'm pretty sure I get over 1500 calories per meal, easily.
  • ah I see. I guess when I was referring to...

    ah I see. I guess when I was referring to lowering protein, I was envisioning something along the lines of 200g to 150g where my minimum is about 110g.
  • Well, let's see... First you answered "Yes" to...

    Well, let's see...

    First you answered "Yes" to "Is it still recommended that protein intake increases when cutting?"

    Then you stated "No. The only benefit would be carbs or calories.
    " to...
  • These answers seem inconsistent to me? why...

    These answers seem inconsistent to me?

    why would the body be “used” to a higher protein intake if excess protein is used like carbs?

    If it’s all based on minimums then my intuition tells me...
  • Is it still recommended that protein intake increases when cutting?

    Provided that I’m eating above the minimum recommended protein intake, is there any benefit to upping protein intake when cutting?

    I’ve actually done the opposite when going from bulking to...
  • It sounds a lot because I get around 20g or less...

    It sounds a lot because I get around 20g or less a day.

    But anyways, is he saying that those 100 calories aren't absorbed after they're consumed, thereby making them pretty much useless as if...

    Jesus 75-100g of fiber. How many carbs do you typically eat a day? And do you eat a lot of veggies?
  • Is progressive overloading really necessary to build muscle?

    If I am eating in a caloric surplus, is progressive overloading really necessary to build muscle?

    Or in other words, if I'm bulking, and say my strength gains have plateaued and I'm lifting the...

    I don't mean to highjack the thread, but I have a question regarding what you just said. Shouldn't the net outcome be similar if you cut on a small deficit vs. the larger deficit? Sure, you may lose...

    Where did the 0.4g/lb and 0.7g/lb mins for fats and protein, respectively, daily intake come from?

    Why are these numbers a function of total mass and not lean body mass? I didn't do the...
  • I was referring to over 1lb/week as...

    I was referring to over 1lb/week as "astronomical." I honestly don't know how much those restaurant meals totaled in calories, but I suspect Chinese and Indian food to each be over 1000 calories for...

    Hmm the problem is my bulk is going to start in a couple of weeks when I will be eating out daily at various restaurants that do not provide calorie and macro breakdowns. I won't have access to a...
  • I'm too good with gaining weight though, leading...

    I'm too good with gaining weight though, leading to exponential increases in body fat % when I bulk. But that's my fault because when I bulked in the past I operated under the thought that "I'm gonna...

    I guess I am neither. I can get weight easily. Super easily. I love food. People often think I have an unlimited appetite.

    I can also lose weight easily if I'm really dedicated. But it's much...

    Should I expect to gain strength faster at a 200-300 calorie surplus as opposed to 100-200?

    Are you trying to say that you lost 2% in body fat in a week, making you 2% leaner (and not 2% muscle - I don't even know what yo mean by this)?
