>attempt first bulk ever
>gain 20lbs in 2 months
bros, is this too much? what do I do. help
>beginner lifter. >attempt first bulk ever. >gain 20lbs in 2 months
Definitely too much
You can gain roughly 1, MAYBE 2 pounds of muscle mass per month
Eat less or move more
>Definitely too much
How do I save myself? Do I need to cut or recomp?
>he fell for the bulking meme
Then we can talk
2 months of lifting:
Bench: 1RM 170
Squat (BACK): 155 x 8 (idk 1RM)
Deadlift: 225 x 5 (idk 1 RM)
OHP: 70x5 (idk 1RM)
My goal is hypertrophy
Good lifts for being this new. Also don't worry about 1rm if the goal is hypertrophy. Worry about your 10rm and how much work you can output instead
Complete meme if you're not chasing strength
Way too aggressive. You should be aiming for like 1/2 a pound a week. That's only a 200-300 calorie surplus. Calm it down dude
>Calm it down dude
What can I do to salvage any progress that I have made? Do I need to mini cut now? Or should I just eat at maintenance?
Just eat at maintenance for a while and recomp. If you're making shit progress just cut a little and maintain your performance in the gym so you can start over properly
>Just eat at maintenance for a while and recomp
sounds good. going to look into it.
Jus eat less, you shouldn't gain more than 1lb a week, anything more and you are just getting fatter for no benefit, long term .5lb is more sustainable and cutting is easier
Do I cut now? Eat at maintenance?
You can go for maintenance recomp because you're new. But a 20lbs increase from 120lbs is way too much for 2 months. Maybe cut - you'll still gain strength/muscle because of the newbie gains
>retard natty does a roider brosplit made for roidtrannies with increased metabolism and 500% increase in fat burn and muscle gain
>ends up DYEL and fat
Tale as old as time itself.
I will never let drugs touch my blood.
Then stop training 6 days a week and "bulking".
> 6 days a week
I do 3.
Come back in 5 years of lifting then.
how? is 5/3/1 a meme then?
Yet you are retarded enough to not know what to do when bulling.
>do when bulling.
So? I'm a newbie. Now I know what to do. Go cope drug user.
>Do lifting for some months
>weigth is about 110kg when I started
>I get stronger, after 6 months I am almost at 2pl8 bench, 2.5pl8 squats and 3pl8 deadlifts
>started from only bar bench, 1/2 pl8 squats (10kg) and 1/2 pl8 deadlifts (10kg)
>losing no weigth, still 110kg
No clue if I do everything correctly or wrong since I want to lose some fat as well and not only become stronger.
