Curious to hear everyone’s opinion on how much protein you need when running cycles. For my first few cycles a few years ago my coach I had was big on pushing protein. I was always over 2g/lb of weight.
Since working with my new coach these last few blasts I’ve been running lower protein. Around 1.5g/lb. I’ve still seen great results and I love carbs so I’ve had no issue.
I’m currently 197lbs and eating just shy of 4800 cals now on this bulk. Around 285-300P (depending which lgb I get at the time 90vs93%), 585C, and 115-122F (again due to lgb I buy).
I’m thinking it’s time to up more cals and in 3 weeks I’ll be dropping my coach to continue on the bulk myself. I’ll hire him again if I decide to compete. But I’m wondering, wth my other macros pretty high… is it time to bump the protein and get that higher closer to 2x my weight or do you think he 1.5x is plenty and keep pushing the carbs?
Figure this would be a good discussion with varying opinions.
