Do you guys think it makes sense to cut down to about 5-6% body fat in hopefully a month or so, than try to slowly bulk up but maintain abs and hopefully 7-8% body fat. (current i have approx 9-10) If so do i go aboutt his by slowly increasing my calories but also maintaining a good amount of cardio?
Yeah if you want your 5 lbs of new mass to come over the next 3 years or more.
The cut, should never be before the bulk…it’s counterproductive.
I lost a good percentage of BF AFTER my 2 year bulk in a matter of a couple of month of restricted calories.
I wouldn’t say NEVER…if you’re a long time fat boy, and at 20% bf you may not want to start bulking…maybe you want to cut to 12 or so.
But come on, you’re starting at 9%?? Bulk, baby, bulk. End when you gain 20-25 lb.
