I started my first bulk phase 10 weeks ago and have made some nice gains along the way however my plan was to bulk for the winter and cut in time for summer.
I have recently learned that one needs to "hold on" to new muscle for a certain period of time before the cutting proccess is to commence or run the risk of sacraficing the new muscle during the cutting phase which of course I want to avoid at all costs.
A friend of mine who has some knowledge in BB recommended that forget about cutting for summer and just keep bulking to make the most out of my newbie gains.He's basically saying that I'm growing from week to week so don't fuck it up by dieting to soon.
I don't particularly want to be chubby for summer as I am starting to get a "bulk belly" but on the other hand I don't want to ruin my newbie gains either.
Can I get away with my first bulk lasting 3 1/2 months and cut without losing too much muscle?
More importantly,in doing so, will this sacrafice my newbie gains for my next bulking phase?
