I’m once again hitting what’s got to be my absolutely LEAST favorite part of every body transformation routine I’ve embarked upon.
I had laid out a progression of approximately 10 weeks of bulking, followed by a 6 week CKD, 3 40/30/30 weeks, then another 6 to 8 week CKD (a progression that I have previously used with excellent results).
Anyway, I say it’s my least favorite part because I’m about 4 weeks into my bulking phase, and I look in the mirror and see a really fat MF’er staring back at me, and I’m fighting every urge in my body to just say F the last 6 weeks of bulking, and start the CKD now. I look heavy now, and I can’t imagine what a a fat, slovenly beast i’ll resemble with 6 more weeks of 3,800+ calories.
I’m sure this has to be a very common stage that most people attain at one time or another. What do some of you do to relieve the angst that I’m getting every time I look in the mirror. Do you typically just bite the bullet, and continue bulking as planned for the remaining weeks, or call it quits early and start dieting.
OF course the risk you run with the latter is that you’ll diet down and lament how little mass you seem to have and wish you had just stuck it out another few weeks when you were bulking.
