      I've been doing all pro's beginner routine for a small amount of time now, and only needing to go to the gym 3 days a week is fine, but coming up next week, I'll have access to a gym every day or whenever I need it, so would switching to a split be a good idea?

      also on bulking.


      I'm eating 3200 calories a day, when my maintenance is probably around 2600-2750 (used 3 calculators, all of them said numbers in that region)

      Is this too much calories per day?

      I haven't been lifting long enough to know a whole lot about cutting, since i haven't actually had to do it yet, just that you continue your routine, but eating less calories than you need.

      I'm pretty lean right now, with about 10% body fat, Should I just continue eating 3,200 and trying to bulk up as quick as possible?

      If your still making progress, no need to switch.

      Play around with your calories.

      Don't try and bulk up as quick as possible, you'll regret it / spend more time cutting later. Eat around a 250-300 surplus. If you do decide to do a different routine, you might need to recalculate how much you need to eat, due to more days working out.

      I can definitely see I'm making progress in my strength, but i don't want to eat too much and look fat while bulking

      yeah that's what I've been thinking.
      I see these threads people talk about bulking too quick and cutting too slow.

      I'm gonna switch over to 3000 cals for now.

      And if i switched to a routine where i trained every day, with a rest day, like a 3 day split, would i need to add more calories?

      I'm actually 154lbs now, in 2 weeks, that's why I'm thinking I'm eating too much and wondering if i should drop it

      don't do splits i wasted 12 months on that and i bet you anything you will like ss 3x5 better

      eat a 1k calorie surplus like me and watch your squat go up 90 lbs in 2 weeks lol (went from 135 to 225)

      I don't really like the looks of ss, i don't see the point in going to the gym if you're barely going to do 3 exercises, just doesn't seem any more beneficial over all pro's beginner routine.

      but if I'm wrong, could you please tell me what makes ss better? I'd like to know.
