I think I’ve seen you say somewhere that you’ve been cut before. Do you have any pics? Also, what are you going to do in terms of diet/training? Are you going to do IF/feast? Are you going to change your training routine or just add cardio? Lol at the winter coat too! I like to stay a bit more svelt in the winter, b/c in Cali there is no winter…So I do sprints once a week and do some steady state/one pulse fast a week. But great work, awesome strength increases. I can’t wait to BB Row 320 pounds…[/quote]
Yah, I’ve bulked and cut a few times before…I have to replace a hard drive on my computer and most of the pics are on a backup I have. So you’ll have to stomach a ‘hawt abzzzz’ picture. I’m 183 in this one. I respond best to carb cycling. I’m around 5000 calories at the end of the bulk per day. I’m walking it down over the next 6 weeks or so by a few hundred per week. I have a spreadsheet lol. I’ll probably end up around 3200 or so. When I get down to like 3600 cals/day I’m going to start going low carb (around 35 net) on my conditioning day.
As for the routine; cutting or bulking I respond best to an upper/lower heavy/light split. Although honestly during this bulk it became upper/lower heavy/heavier lol. On the light days during the cut I’m going to add some o-lifts in, so snatches, maybe hang cleans. The rest of the routine will remain focused almost entirely on big compound movements.
My conditioning days are usually Tues & Fri. During the bulk it was just one tabata of something like ball slams or KB swings. Maybe a complex here or there. Now it’s going to be a complex on Tuesdays followed by some heavy carries, there was a great article here on carries earlier in February. Friday will be a tabata & some core work. When it thaws out a little bit more I’m going to throw in sprinting on Saturdays over at Harvard’s track since I live a 3 minute walk from it.
Again pardon the red hawt abbbzzzz photo, I’ll have to dig up other post-cut pics
