I row competitively and I'm wanting to lose some body fat, and I currently sit at 28%, weigh 169, and am 5'10 female. However, my coach told me that she doesn't want me to lose weight. She wants me to gain muscle and told me that the best rowers weigh close to 200lbs. My concern is that she wants me to eat a surplus of calories, but I know my body well enough to understand that it will just store everything as fat. Therefore making it much more difficult to actually gain muscle without gaining fat. It's the beginning of race season, and I fear that cutting calories will decrease energy or even cause muscle loss. I'm wanting to know if I should proceed with the bulking or cut calories first? Thanks

you can't half rep a deadlift.
you can't bounce a deadlift.
you can't arch to get an easier deadlift.
you won't have a spotter to help the hard part of a deadlift.
there's just you, some heavy ass weight, and your b!tch ass having to pick it up.
