Hey all - quick question. I've been doing PHUL + a recomp for about 10 weeks now. I'm seeing some changes in muscle definition all over my body which I love.

Help with Bulking & Cutting
Hi All - I introduced lifting into my workout routine in January of this year, using the 5x5 StrongLifts program. I don't have the powerpack yet, but plan to add that in next month.

Fitbit Calories Burned
I have a question about the calories my Fitbit tells me I'm burning. The total calories for the day includes the exercises that I log.
