Bulk Question:

I started my first bulk last month, and I gained 5lbs. I feel like it was probably 1lb of muscle. I feel like cutting right now, the excess fat is a lot.

Did I bulk long enough? Should I cut now or wait longer? I think another lb of muscle will come with like 10lbs of fat overall.

    >one month bulk
    >already thinking of cutting
    homie if you're doing anything fitness wise you NEED to follow through 100%
    bulking? set yourself a set date to start cutting, and a weight goal
    cutting? same shit
    programming? same shit

    stop pussying about and TRUST THE PROCESS

      How long should a bulk be? I’m not a power lifter, I don’t want to be ugly for months on end. I though 2 weeks was a good time scale

        You thought wrong. It should be months but you don't need to and shouldn't get overly fat to bulk. You might cover your abs but you shouldn't look like the OP pictures.

        no but seriously, just slowly (over several months) gain mass and then slowly cut homie no need to become a fat prick

      THIS

      Don't try and do two things at once with bulking and cutting, just pick one and stick to it. That's the only way you see any results
      1 month bulk and then cut, then repeat yields no gains. You end up in skinnyfat noob purgatory forever

      Either bulk or cut and stick to that for at least 6 months. Don't try and do both or you get none

    You bulked too hard. Unless you are a complete n00b, you should be bulking at 0.5 lbs per week or less.
    Your bulks should be 3+ months, the body puts on muscle best when it is in a long term surplus
    Cutting should be at a rate of <= 1% bodyweight per week, more than that [without steroids] will lead to muscle loss

    5 lbs in a month is way too much. Aim for half that. Your TDEE is guesswork, if you're gaining too much weight on 3000 kcal a day you reduce it to 2800. 200-300 excess kcals a day is what you want.

    It is not even a pound of muscle, which shows how you played yourself.

    maybe 2lbs of that is made up of water and all the extra food you are eating still inside your guts. did you count calories? calculate your tdee? or just gorge yourself like a moron?

    Most people DO NOT need to bulk

    Unless you are already lean (like visible abs year round lean) you ALREADY HAVE fat on your body that can be "converted" into muscle

    If you eat the same amount you've been eating, your body will naturally reacclimate and become leaner and bigger on its own

    do NOT bulk unless you are already an experienced (at least intermediate) lifter

        why? think about it, fat is stored when you eat a surplus of calories

        so if you have fat on your body, that means you are eating at a maintenance number that is above a number required to be lean at your current amount of muscle

        if you eat the same amount and lift, your amount of muscle will go up, raising your BMR causing your body to consume more calories over time and reducing the surplus of fat you've stored on your body

        the people that need to bulk are either totally skelly to the point where they DO NOT have that surplus to exhaust or guys that are already lean and shredded and also don't have it

    if you aren't ripped you have no business bulking
    if you don't have a six pack you have no business bulking
    if you don't have veins running down your arms and lats you have no business bulking
