Do I start to look at anabolics as my next step? At the moment I'm mainly looking at cutting, but will eventually be looking for a bulk cycle possibly as well.
A little backround-
Been heavy on the grind for dropping to a low bf% for roughly 3 years now, with a minor 4 month bulk cycle somewhere in between. I'm not quite sure I'm at my "genetic limit" yet if there is one....I've been in Afghanistan for those 3 years and food options are not always the best out here, although I do quite well in my opinion. Started this journey at 230 pounds( 6'2). At the lowest I got to 170 with the help of a typical deficit, carb cycling, keto, refeeds, heavy lifting and cardio, at which point I bulked for those few months.
Bulked up to 210, and have been cutting since(now back at 180), which has roughly been the last 3.5 months. Not weighing my food here as thats not really an option at the buffet style DFACS, I know once I get home and can cut while super accurately tracking my macros/intake I'll be better off than I am here. My macros and food measurements seem to be pretty damn close with my eating, but it's also a bit frustrating trying to get to 10% and thinking it may not be genetically possible.
So...long story short, when do I maybe look for a little extra assistance?
Any help and or feedback is greatly appreciated.
