So as of yesterday I offically hit both 190Lbs and 20% BF, well 20.8% to be exact. This is from 3 months ago when I was 166Lbs with a 16% BF.
I have made some good strenght gains in the last 3 months on WS4SB,
my DL had gone from 70KG too 120KG
And my Squat has gone from 0KG too 80KG(No power rack, I have to clean the weight and squat it).
Anyway, at 20% BF im really thinking I should back off now and lose some of the blubber as Im starting to feel pretty shitty day in and day out.
What im worried about is if im falling into the bulk/cut trap when I still have no muscle. I dont want to end right back where I started but I cant really ignore the high bf any longer.
So I want to ask you guys,
Intelligently how would you handle this situation to not spin your wheels?
Would you keep on bulking up and focusing on strenght and nothing else(just like I have/ I aimed for 1-2Lbs a week on the scale while trying to break PR's as often as I could).
Or would you diet down to a reasonable number(10-12%) and then go on a strenght phase again?
I like being lean but I want to be big(think Jim W) much more so I just dont want to end up stuck in the same place for the next year.
Any help would be seriously appreciated guys.
