Hi guys! I'm back from a shoulder surgery and both knees physical therapy, and during that time I got a little fat (went from 200lbs 15%bf to 208-210lbs godknowswhat% bf). It was advised to me to pack some more muscle to my internal quads and shoulder region but since I'm a bit more fat I'd like to know if how could I pack some more muscle and sheed some fat away? Or should I go straight to a bulk diet or to a cutting diet? I'd like to hear your opinion on this since this is the first time this happens to me (comming back from a surgery not from getting fat lol)
I would cut down first since it sounds like you'd like to lose some fat..bulking will add mass but it will also add more fat on top of what you already want to get rid of.
You could try a recomp but those are a much slower gradual process.
bulk through the holidays dude, its winter. not like youre gonna be wearing t shirts anyways. 15% isnt that fat anywaysOriginally Posted by Broly

I was thinking about carb cycling, high on workout days low on non-workout days to make a lean bulk, what do you think?
