    Question Cut/Bulk Query

    Hi all,

    So my question is, ‘with the below routine, will my muscles grow, whilst keeping lean?’

    Nutrition
    - I eat at 500 cal deficit 5 days a week (on lifting days)
    - I eat at 500/750 cal surplus 2 days a week (on non-lifting days)

    Lifting
    - I always progressive overload, despite being at a calorie deficit for the week
    - I believe I am getting stronger

    My hope:
    - That the 2 days at cal surplus grows my muscles (even though they're on non-lifting days).
    - The 5 days in cal deficit will keep the fat level low

    Thanks in advance

    Josh

    No, it's been tried a gazllion times. The problem is that the energy reserves in the body are larger than you think - so you can't get into an efficient fat burning mode in just a few hours or even days.

    The overall effect is similar to if you ate the same average calories per day.

    Muscle gain does happen in a mild deficit - but it's easy for it to stop happening and for you to spin your wheels. Better to be certain and focus on one goal at a time. This will actually be fast IMO compared to trying to do both at the same time.

    How come I can keep lifting more then despite being at an overall deficit (I think)? I think I'm getting a bit bigger.
