I know I “should” bulk for another year or two but I need a break from it. With my metabolism it’s just not a pleasant way to live because it requires constantly stuffing myself with more food than I’d ever want to eat, minimizing fruits and vegetables etc.
So… should I maintain weight for a while and work on getting stronger and a bit leaner, or should I cut to my “untrained” level of bodyfat? Which would be more productive in the long term?
I’ve never measured my bodyfat levels but I’m naturally very lean - I had six-pack abs all my adult life with no exercise and a desk job. I’d guesstimate I’ve gained 10-12 kilos of fat on this bulk.
