Hey guys this is my first post and im new to this forum. I am 17 years old, have been lifting for 3 years, and my lifts are a 315 lbs bench press, (95 lbs shoulder press 6RM), squat and deadlift idk because of a sprained ankle and torn hip flexor. I weigh around 210 lbs with a decent amount of muscle, but also carry a little more fat than I would like (not a great amount).
My question is I am torn between bulking or cutting. I would like to cut, but the only problem is i head off to university next year, which means I will be eating mainly cafeteria food, making it hard for me to continue to cut). I am also going to be away on vacations during the spring and summer time (over a month), which would also affect my dieting.
Last time i cut i had lost 40 lbs and it took me aorund 6 months, which means i would need roughly the same and i feel like i would not have a lot of time in my situation.
In my case, would you still pursue the time of cutting (on and off), or bulk at a slower rate with eating in moderation and cleaner food sources while still training hard.
I really am having a hard time/dilemma figuring out this situation on my own and it be great to have some of your inputs. Thanks.
