Loose Skin & Should I Bulk, or Keep Up the Cut?


#1

currently lost on what to do for my body next, ive been on a cut for song long down to 163 at 6’1 and not sure whether to bulk and fill up my frame/get rid of loose skin or keep up the cut for a more lean look, just can’t seem to get rid of the last lower chest flab and the spare tire belly, any advice is appreciated.


#2

I would focus on being active and eating well, veggies, meat, and some starches around your workout


#3

Tbh i already do that, im just not sure whether to eat at a caloric surplus to start building mass or continue my deficit to cut down more fat


#4

We don’t know what your goals are.


#5

Up your calories to maintenance/very small surplus even and do a program from this site with a good amount of metabolic work as below…


#6

I agree with rampant, I think a very very very small surplus would be good. Just don’t over due it like most guys do. Adding a lot of fat to a not very lean frame can make gaining muscle even harder


#7

Would like to put on size on to develop my core and get a crease in my chest but hesitant due to the fact that it may still be too soon and I’ll just be putting fat on top of fat


#8

Is my “not very lean” frame due to lack of muscle and/excess body fat? Or because of loose skin?
