BF Estimate? Bulk or Cut?

Hi,

At the moment I am not quite sure what to do next. Fact is, I have some bodyfat at my lower abs, but its obviously not too much; anyway here 2 photos, how high is the BF ?
And would you bulk or cut firstly ?

Im 6’2 tall and on the photos about 200pounds heavy

Bulk. 6’2 and 200 is skinny.

You look like you’ve never picked up a weight in your life…bulk time, son

bulk

/thread

Absolutely definitely unquestionably BULK, and ignore anyone who tells you differently.

I would say “gain”. BF I would say 12-15%.

I would say, “why the hell is someone built like this CONFUSED about what to do?”.

i like this guy, agreed.

needs more shoe

Agreed. Absent shoe does not bode well.

Lift.

you look like someone with an 80 lb OHP

(it’s not a good look)

lift hard AND get in an extra 100 grams of protein above what you normally eat.

Good Lord, why do people always act perplexed as to whether they should “cut” or “bulk”. Holy shit, just eat healthy and pick up weights. That simple. And if you really feel like you need to cut or bulk then read some damn articles on here, look at some pictures, and realize that youre not big and if thats your goal is to get big then eat more. Fuck.

lift…eat…watch your body grow. judging by your build you’re definitely a ectomorph (hard gainer) so just eat big and lift big and don’t worry about getting “fat”. good luck.

so i guess you guys would advocate increasing strength first, something like SS instead of a “BB routine” like a 3day split ?

What the fuck??? So we go from juding bf to giving advice on a vague “BB 3-day split”? This is why i hate everybody. Literally. Everybody.

calm down dude, you dont even have to answer if you dont want to.

OP you don’t have to over think things at this point. Start going to the gym regularly and focus on progressing at each session via increased weight, reps, sets, etc. Check out Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1, follow it as written, eat a lot of GOOD quality food, and body comp changes will follow.
