Hey guys, so I have decided to begin Starting Strength in addition to BJJ practice with IIFYM. My problem is I do not know how many calories to consume to make strength gains. A surplus I know, but I am unsure on how to calculate SS calories, and BJJ calories accurately. I am 21, 170 lbs, 10% bf and tried using a caloric calculator. (www.iifym.com) The website says my BMR is 1872 and my TDEE 3230, (with intense exercise or twice a day.) I am trying to find a more accurate way to calculate my TDEE and then whatever I need extra. My schedule (proposed): Monday: Morning BJJ 90 minutes / Evening SS - Tuesday: Morning BJJ 90 minutes / Afternoon BJJ 90 minutes / Evening BJJ (2 classes continuous) 180 minutes - Total 6 hours Wednesday: Morning BJJ 90 minutes/ Evening BJJ 180 minutes Thursday: Morning BJJ 90 minutes / Afternoon BJJ 90 minutes / SS Friday: Morning BJJ 90 minutes / Evening Open mat ~120 minutes Saturday: SS Sunday: Typically rest Total: 17 hours of BJJ a week I have been doing this for a month now, I recover well, take supplements and foam roll pretty much after every class and my body is holding up well. Are there more accurate ways to measure calories burned from BJJ practice? Obviously, I am not going hard at BJJ 24/7. Thanks.
