I've been thinking a lot about this recently, especially since I've been putting on weight very easily (and quickly). Over the last month I've averaged a weight gain of 2lb/week using Marion's Training for Maximal Size. My gut is a little bigger, but when I flex my abs, they're only SLIGHTLY less visible. I think I've been having a good muscle:fat gain ratio (I think, as I do not have access to calipers). I'm guessing my bf% is around 13-15%.
Here's the thing. This morning I weighed 156lbs. I need to wrestle in the 145lb weight class, which means by mid-December, I have to weigh under 150lbs (so I can cut weight the night before - running in sweatsuits, etc, will drop the last few lbs the night before the meet). I want to be the biggest, most ripped 145 pounder possible, though. So, weighing at 156lbs right now, what would be a good idea for a bulking/cutting schedule?
I was thinking:
Bulk for 1.5 more weeks: End weight = 158-159lbs or so
Lower calories/maintain for one week (take an off week from the gym? I haven't had one in a while, about 10 weeks or so)
Begin cutting using RR&D 2.0 until December 1 (wrestling season), when I will have to find a new plan to weight tain, b/c I'll be wrestling 6 days/week.
Sound good? More or less? If I can do this right, I should be able to lower my bf% from the 13-15% range down to 8-9% in 2 months or so. Does this sound feasible?
Would any of you guys reccomend a different schedule to achieve my goals?
Thank you, you're a ton of help.
