    here we go once again!!!


    hey guys. starting tomorrow, May 5th, i will begin a very clean bulk but also cut fat. i have my diet down, but as far as training i was thinking between 8 to 10 reps but what kind of splits do u guys recommend? i dont like full body splits, never have worked for me. i always lose arm muscle size. anyways, if there is any info u can input on here, it is greatly appreciated. i just bought a jump rope so ima be doing that for a few min every day. i will be taking creatine mono also

    What are your stats and goals? You going for just mass gains, strength, or both?

    my biggest suggestion especially if you want to be natty is to pick either the bulk or the cut and do it 100%. TRying to add muscle mass while losing bodyfat can be done, however it is not easy and relies a lot on genetics. My suggestion is either do a bulk, maintenance then cut or the reverse of that. It will just take a lot longer to achieve what you want if you try to do both at the same time.

    If you think about just physically what you are trying to achieve its really hard to come up with how to do that. Cause basicly u want to gain muscle (gain weight) and at the same time lose fat (lose weight) its hard to gain and lose weight at the same time. Now assuming u are in good shape, which it does sound like u are, that makes it increasingly harder to do both of those, if you where sedentary and never trained much before it would be relatively easy but since u have its going to be a lot harder to achieve both of these at the same time... So again im going to recomend either sticking with a bulk or sticking with a cut.

    And if you do the cut try to shoot for about a 1.5 lb loss a week, that will ensure u keep almost all ur muscle and lose the bf, cause losing weight at a rapid pace will cause some muscle loss and thats something u want to avoid.

    Other than that goodluck and i wish u the best.

    if you want to do something like that i would suggest something like starting strength or the DC program, the last thing u wanna do is something GVT orientated cause ur going to be on a pretty strict diet and the volume may be too much.

    Other than that just do the periodization and new muscle stimulation and keep changing reps up once gains get stale.
