from bulking to cutting

  1. from bulking to cutting


    Ive gained about ten pounds so far I'm 6' and 187 from 165 in the past two month, bodyfat has been jumpin from 12 to 14 and back, but when should I stop bulking? And after I'm done should I maintain my weight for a certain amount of time before I cut down?

    yeah, i think I'm gonna go with that, because i'm starting to loose flexibility

  7. i cut down to 10-12% then start a lean bulk

  8. Had the same question a few Months ago and some Friends Amateur Bodybuilders ( In Europe, Austria ) told me its absolutely fine to jump after your bulk diet to a cut diet! I think after my Current Cut diet I will try 2weeks Bulk 2weeks Cut for a whole year to be in "shape" all year long and my 2weeks of bulk would absolutely clean food and the other 2 weeks of cut im just gonna change the Carbohydrate Protein Ratio but cardio all year round try it and gain your own experiences life's short train hard and good luck!

  10. I walk already around 20 mins to my Gym and 20mins Back haha but normally I keep it low when I Bulk up : 30-45mins after a Leg Day, 30-45 mins rowing after my back day and another 30-45mins on bike. But when I cut I will have 4-5 days in the week cardio on empty stomach depends from 30mins to 1hour and 2-3 times 30-45mins cardio after my workout and when i cut down i cut my carb intake after the last cardio session! But the most important thing no matter is you have to eat clean all year round

  13. Once you reach 15% begin a cut down to between 8% and 6%. If you are happy with your appearance then you can maintain this for a while. If you prefer to gain weight, gain 1 pound a week until you reach 15% and cut back down to 8-6%.

    As far a recomp is concerned I would advise you not to listen. People who are accustomed to stalled progress feel comfortable hovering around 15% bodyfat and tend to notice small changes in muscularity and call this progress "recomposition".

    Aim for low body fat and when you gain weight do so carefully not to lose control and become a fat person focused on getting muscular.

  15. Personally I recommend intermittent fasting for weight loss. Simply not eating for 2-3 days each week is the simplest weight loss plan and provided you don't over eat on the non-fasting days works very effectively.

    If you prefer conventional dieting then a standard low calorie diet should prove effective. Aim for 1200 calories divided into 3 meals. Ensure you consume at least 70g of protein and 15g of fibre (aim for 30g of fibre). Foods like tuna, chicken, ham, lentils, rice, pasta, bread and vegetables are ideal foods to incorporate into your diet.
