My question is I went from 175 lbs to 196 lbs recently (hdrol cycle). Started my pct and not sure if I should cut or continue to and pack on muscle. When I try and cut I think I get too skinny. Maybe I cut too fast and burn a lot of muscle. I have put on some fat recently around my waist. I know this is to be expected but I not sure if I where to go from here.
My goal is 185 lbs around 10-12% bodyfat.
Thanks in advance for your help.
