I need some advice on bulking. I averaged my ratios over a week and i was coming in about 3500 cal/day. 1900 = my maintence caloric intake.

53% protein
27% complex carbs
20% fats

Is this in the ballpark for a clean bulk? Obviously again, this is very unscientific, as am I.

thx for the input peeps.

totally dependent on what you respond to. that setup may keep one person lean and might make another a little chunky. i'd say it's a good start though.

for a regimented approach, you can check out the mass gain article in PM issue 17:

Greg, might this be as good a place as any to start posting comments/concerns with the Pmenu mass gaining program? I'm wondering if anyone else has attempted implementing it, and what kind of success they've had.

good links guys...appreciate it. And I do realize everything I typed above is subjective. "clean" bulk.

Is there a baseline for how many calories over maintenance one should consume? Obviously it probably depends on individuals size.

I'm 6'1' 167, around 6 - 7% BF. I'd like to get to 180.

My "bodybuilder" friends tell me at leat 1000 to 1500 extra calories per day in a 50p/40c/10 ratio. These seems kind of bogus to me.

Jesse, I know, I've already been posting questions there, but I was looking for a place for people who have/are attempting the program to post progress notes, modifications, etc.

aka I'm looking for an outlet to vent/brag.

Jay, read the pmenu article about mass gain, most questions can be answered there.

Craig, you should not be permitted to post two messages in a row that let your avatar be on the screen twice. I can't stop laughing.
