The bulk just seemed sloppy and half assed to me. You didn’t eat right, you didn’t notice improvement in strengths, a 13lbs gain on a bulk is below average, but you should have noticed a good improvement. especially the bench which is usually tied to your bodyweight a little bit more. If your numbers didnt improve much if at all this is a bad sign.
You really should just focus on building strength, eating clean and eating the right amounts. One of the reasons I think you should keep bulking is I prefer the more steady clean bulk not the dirty bulk that the article rights about. As long as you keep getting stronger, adding volume or whatever your program is based on, eat at a slight surplus, I do not think you will get fat. I would do a 12 month good clean strength bulk and gain about 15 more lbs.
This is just my opinion. Its your ideal body, not mine. I just don’t want you cut to early in the game and realize you are to skinny, or don’t like the way you look, which is what i think is gonna happen and why we are saying to continue bulking
If you want to cut really focus on maintaining strength levels, do not let the dip much if at all so keep track of your numbers better. [/quote]
I will start saying thank you because I really liked the way you expressed yourself,really nicely! The thing is that when I was in 171 I “looked good”,I looked a lot better with the abs,because I have such wide waist and narrow shoulders(It sucks so much) so from the moment I gain a little bit of weight,all the fat goes to he obliques and it doenst look good.
I really dont know how that happened(the numbers),I moved to another country and was hard at the begining cause I didnt have money for the food so I ate shit(worked at MC Donalds for those 6 months) and not even close the protein I needed for maybe 3-4 months of those 6. Still trained my ass off and recover some of the gains, and maybe from the moment I start taking more protein,eating better(Around January).
Thanks for the feedback,but I will be cuting anyway,I will post pictures in 2 weeks or so,lets see how it goes. Thanks again!
