    Bulk or cut??


    I have been lifting about 2-3 years now. I'm 18, 6'2 185 lbs as of right now. I have cut down from 205. I am pretty lean, don't know my body fat %. I am just stuck whether to bulk more or cut, I did too dirty of a bulk before summer, that's why I'm cutting now. I was gonna go down to 170-175 lbs just to be shredded for summer but idk if that'll be beneficial or not. I know for my height I'm little, but I was looking for opinions. If I was to go on a bulk it would be extremely lean, like 100 calories over my maintenance.

    When in doubt, recomp. I would go with your planned 100 over and keep it clean. I was maintaining 300 over and taking Forskolin-95 and getting in some HIIT on my off days, lost bodyfat and slight increases on my lifts

    In my opinion it's not a good bulk if you still have a six pack by the end of it unless you're being assisted by anabolics
