Normally after a bulking cycle (especially one involving an androgen) I eat slightly above my [new] maintenance caloric level for at least 3 weeks.
At the 3 week mark I drop calories to maintenance for about 2 weeks, and then start dipping lower as I will begin trying to shed some of the fat I tend to gain when bulking.
My training is maintenance/strength oriented for at least 4 weeks. What happens after that is heavily dependent on the amount of fat I’ve gained. If I’m a super-chunk, I may do something like Meltdown, but if I’m still relatively lean, I just add in some cardio and evaluate my training goals.
After lots of mass lost post-bulking due jumping on the cutting wagon too early, I’ve learned to walk the Path of Patience. Following this method, I am able to have a great bulking cycle and hold onto all of my mass before I start cutting.
Of course, the entire plan would change if you decided to throw in an androgen to help you on your dieting cycle.
