    Hi guys.

    Im trying to get a bit of guidance into how everyone sets up the nutrition side of their programming.
    I know that there probably wont be a general rule to cover everyone, but I’m trying to get a bit of insight into how long people generally spend in muscle building and then going to Recomp – and how you set your targets.
    I’ve been in Recomp for a little while – managed to drop from 103kg to about 93kg without losing any strength, but now I think it’s time to go to building muscle.
    What would be the main factor for determining how long to stay in Muscle Building before going back to Recomp/fat lose:

    – Specific timescale
    – Hitting a certain Kg weight
    – until you’re happy you look like you’ve build enough muscle

    Finally, would you use 1 of these for determining how long you then go back into Recomp/fat lose?
