Alright, so I’ve been bulking since last June, and so far I’ve put on 35 pounds, going from 195 to about 230 at a height of 6’5", 20 years old. Skinfold tests say I’m 12-13% bodyfat.
I’ve been stuck at this weight for a solid 2 months, even increased my caloric intake to no avail, currently at 4300 on workout days and 4000 on non. I suppose this is my first major plateau. Anyway, I’ve just started doing Hypertrophy 1 from The New Rules of Lifting and hoping to see some progress on this though.
My question is, should I just stay and maintain to get my body used to the current weight, go bulk more, or attempt to drop some of the fat I’ve put on?
I hate asking that last question as much as you probably hate reading it, but I’ve made some decent progress and I have no fear of eating what I need so I thought it might be a bit more legitimate. For the record, here are some current lifts:
Bench: (DB) 90x1
Military Press: 150x1
