what I assume he meant by a "bit more detail" is that you have to be a bit more restrained in your eating, hence being on a cut. His rant against avoiding the "paralysis by analysis" trap remains true... I've been plenty guilty of it myself.

The only difference in my mind between a cut and a bulk is total calorie intake. The workout & clean food should remain the same, you just eat a little less so your body can focus on fat burning and muscle retention versus muscle building & fat retention.

How much less? The tool I linked to in my thread can provide that answer, or you can go with the wait and see approach. As long as you are consistently managing the basics and monitoring progress properly (which is part of the basics imo).

^ Thanks, numbers I used from the tool in your thread needs to be taken with a grain of salt. It did not work for me without some tweaks. But it's a good start. I think wait and see approach is needed in addition to the tool.

of course, if you had an accurate DEXA scan of your BF% or even someone very skilled with calipers it would give pretty realistic numbers I think. Definitely gives a ballpark to shoot for

I have calipers at home. What do you need? I'm curious to have a better estimate of my BF and needed calories.

well you can't caliper yourself accurately I believe... I've had some trainers give me caliper results and they were terrible. You'd really need to trust the person was an expert, and get a 7 skin fold test when you weren't pumped.

The calculator has a section where you can input your BF%, and it more accurately predicts TDEE from that. I still think activity multiplier is the single biggest contributor to error, people really overestimate calories burned from exercise.

exactly this.

If I benched for 10 years with a 4x6 rep scheme, a 3x5 or 3x10 I would most likely look exactly the same. Every day I read something new and say ohhh I want to try that and then I have to say shut up and stick to the program.

It's really very simple. You make it much harder than what it truly is.

the fact that some of the most simple minded, non fitness educated people that I know personally (and in some cases uneducated in general) can get to the strength/fitness levels they are at speaks volume about how really simple it all is. The one common denominator is consistency... a consistently inefficient plan is better than a non consistent efficient one over time.

Thanks for sharing this.
Everybody, behave and stop bickering. This is about inspiring more people to get into fitness. I've never understood people who argue constantly about who is wrong and who is right in fitness, because the fact is, there are many "right" answers, especially for people just starting out.
Do you think Sergio Oliva and I did the same thing? No. In fact, you could walk into Gold's and watch the 5 best guys and see 5 completely different routines. And you know what? We didn't argue.
Do me a favor. Try to focus more on expanding the fitness community as a whole than protecting your little corner of it.
