    What is a recomp, compared to a bulk

    I've recently posted a thread on if i should bulk for 2months most members said i should try recomping. i know very little on this and I've looked on google and such and havnt seen much on it either, could someone give me how to make a diet plan for recomping for the 1month i will be doing it...

    stats
    currently
    2000 calories a day 500-600 defecit
    been cutting for 15months
    6,1 195lbs
    I believe my maintenance is right around 2300-2500
    Most of defecit is made from weight lifting and on off days i just eat 500 less...

    Recomping is essentially eating at maintenance. Bodyweight stays the same, body composition (hopefully) gradually changes.

    Some people prefer to fluctuate intake so that you eat more on training days and less on rest days but you can also just intake at maintenance daily.

    One very important thing to note is that recomping is very slow. For most people its spinning wheels and not getting anything done. Its significantly faster to bulk then cut than recomping. Recomps are more for people at low BFs who really just want to "tone" their current physique and/or fill out slightly while they do it. It also requires a very accurate diet. I would just bulk/cut unless you are pretty close to your ideal weight/physique.

    Yes. Clean bulking is bulking with controlled calories, limiting fat gain. You are still gaining weight. Recomping is keeping the same weight, but training in a way where hopefully you lose a little fat and gain a little bit of muscle.

    just to add, recomping is likely going to be a painfully long process. this is why most ppl will either cut or bulk, yes more muscle will be lost or fat gained, respectively with the two. but they are more time efficient

    Sounds like a good plan. Learning to maintain weight porperly is just as critical as learning to lose weight.

    That's been a long cut for you. How much did you lose?
    A diet isn't punishment. A diet is a way to reward your body with the wholesome, nutritious food that it needs. Your body composition is a direct reflection of what you put in your mouth.

    i lost about 95lbs total but the majority of my weight feel off from april 2011-september 2011 about 65lbs... Every day during the summer was
    3hrs b ball
    1hour weight lift
    75min bike ride (25-35k a day)

    but now since winter is here I've only managed to lose 12-15lbs since september which is very disappointing, due to not being able to go outside and exercise because to cold and i got a job in september so I havnt been going to the gym the days i work...and i still gotta lose 20-30lbs because I'm still chubby unfortunately..
