Hey guys, let me introduce myself. I've been reading this forum for about a month. I came into this six months ago at 5'9 - 150 pounds, and around 15% body fat.
I've increased my caloric intake pretty drastically (probably to 3800 cal per day) and my weight has shot up to about 190 pounds.
My arms at just below 15 inches flexed, and my waist is at around 39-40 inches (it was probably 35-36 before)
My routine has been:
Wednesday: Shoulders, triceps
Saturday: Biceps, Abs
I used compound movements (dead lifts, squats, bench press, military press) as well as some isolations, 12-15 sets on major muscle groups, 6-8 on minor muscle groups. I kept a good variety throughout.
I'm drinking lots of water, eating every 3 hours, sleeping 8-10 hours, and training until absolute failure in the gym.
The question that's weighing on my mind is whether should I keep bulking or begin to cut down?
On one side, I'm definitely heavy. But at the same time, it's not like I'm concerned about cutting up for a competition here. I see regular posters here such as Professor X reaming guys out for dieting before reaching a significant weight, but I'm wondering if my BF level is simply too high.
Feedback hugely appreciated. Where do I go from here?
