For the last 9ish months I’ve been dieting down, went from 288lbs (maybe higher) to currently 215lbs at 6’2". I’m noticing that I don’t have the muscle I thought I had and have also noticed some imbalances as well, specifically my left pec is larger (considerably) than my right and a few others that I badly want to correct.
I’m not as lean as I would like and I know the 4/1 rule when fatties try to add muscle but I’m tired of dieting and am anxious to get bigger/stonger.
My thought is taking 3-4 months and focus on gaining muscle, clean like, then going back to the diet. Basically add in a few carbs in the mornings and PWO throw down a few extra hunks of meat thoughout the day. Ideally gain 10+lbs of muscle then diet off the rest of the fat. Good/bad?
Should I just be paitent and diet down to around 190-200 area or try my idea? I’ve never eaten intentionally to gain so I have nothing to base off of, which is why I ask.
There are pictures in my profile if you wanna check’em out.
Let me know what else you need and I’ll gladly answer.
