1) What sort of partitioning ratio does a genetically average male, age 30 and ~15% bodyfat have? In other words, suppose my maintenance calories (factoring in HST lifting) is 2200 calories and I add 500 calories to gain weight, so I eat 2700 calories per day. Over the course of 1 week, I will have overeaten by 500 x 7 days = 3,500 calories which is 1 lb of bodyweight. Of this 1 lb of bodyweight, how much can I hope to see go into muscle? and into fat? is is 70% muscle / 30% fat? better? worse?

2) I realize that factors affecting the p-ratio have been somewhat covered in the books but if you could just simplify things a bit for me and highlight the 3 or 5 most important things to do in order to maximize my p-ratio, what would you say they are?

Thanks again.
