Ready to cycle?
How do i know when im ready to cycle?
current stats are 68kg, 5'9 20 years old
Deadlifting 125kg x 4-6 reps
Squat 80 kg x 4 reps (just coming out of knee injury, havent been able to squat for 3 months)
Bench 70kg x 4-6 reps
given that these numbers are very average i think i still have a while to go before i should start, the thing i cant gain lean muscle mass, been trying to for so long but the only mass i seem to gain is water and fat. current split for diet is 450c/70p/180p = 3200ish cals

At 150lbs you have quite a bit of growing to go. I personally started at around 200lbs. Use a 60/30/10 split on macros c/p/f bump your calories up 200 then follow your choice of hypertrophy program (it is really personal preference).

I would agree that you're a long way from achieving your maximum natural potential. I am also 5' 9" and, whilst I don't consider myself to be anywhere near my natural potential, I've gone from 54kg and dreaming of the day where I would hit 60kg, to around 80kg when I last stepped on the scales.
It's been a very long time (over 10 years), and I'm sure I could have made more progress if I had sorted out my diet much sooner but you live and learn and I'm quite happy with my achievements so far.
I would say your diet should be closer to:
Supplemental Fats: 51

You won't gain lean mass only if you are trying to bulk, the body doesn't work this way unless you are one of a very few genetically gifted people. Most people will gain fat, some more than others, while bulking. You need to bulk up a good 15-20lbs heavier than where you want to be when you are cut. Wait at least a few years before cycling, your body's test right now is really high and shouldn't start to decline at all until you are at LEAST 24 or 25. Personally I started when I was 24 at about 165lbs(funny because I've been this weight after cutting several times now but much more muscular) but I think I should've waited and done another year natty. Can't change the past though!
"Lifting and Game of Thrones share the same calendar, there's only two seasons: cutting and bulking. And guess what? Winter's comin' so it's time to bulk up!"
