I am new to the game. Have been around weights for years ( football, track, basketball) but have always trained for performance. Recently ( 6 months )have made some very nice gains, going from 165 to 190. I have gained a little fat, lost my abs, but am still fairly lean.
Diet is on point, very organic, high calories and protein, 5-8 small meals a day.
Traning is based around compounds Squats, Deads, bench, Power clean, followed by high rep iso movements.
My questions… Will cutting for 2 weeks, then going back to bulking increase gains due to muscle memory?
Should i just ignore the cutting aspect until i’m the weight i want? ( 200lbs).
I also think i’ve plateued, can anyone recommend a training article on here that will make gains?
Thanks, feel free to be assholes I just want some good advice.
stats: 20 yrs, 190lbs, 5’10
Any help is greatly appreciated.
