have this kind of short term bulk and cut cycle alternation given results? and what kinds of results compared to slow steady long term bulk followed by cut?
What i would do nutrition wise, is, with my maintenance at rest days at approximately 2850, i would eat around 3150 trying to stay around 200-250 calories above maintenance. Which is enough to make great progress for me.
i would do this for 2 weeks, while hitting the gym super hard, 2+ hour session drops sets, forced reps, whatever to put in work. i train 5 times a week hitting every muscle twice. then when the cutting week comes i would drop my calories to 900 below maintenance keeping protein high, and cut volume in the gym to around 50% while keeping the weights the same. hopefully make some gains from supercompensation or atleast keep the gains made in the previus 2 week
My goal is strength and size while dropping fat over the long term to 10%.
I think this can work, i remember hearing about the body hormones and processes in relation to building muscle and fat oxidation takes around 5-7 days to respond significantly to calorie reduction and increase. so you stop your cut at the 7 day mark and keep the bulk going for longer than 7 days. anyone pitch in with whatever you have please.
