I'm doing a leangains cut atm, and have been doing so for about 17 weeks.
It's gotten me from pretty fat to what you can see in the pictures.
Been training the whole time, RPT style and first off only doing squats, deadlifts and bench press. Recently added the press and inverse rows. I did SS before an injury and vacation "took me out" for 3 months, so i know the lifts. SS got me fat though, as i followed the crazy 5000 kcal pr. day, even though i wasn't skinny at the beginning.
Squat up to 107.5 kg, DL 127.5 kg and my BP is a bitch at about 60 kg. Squat and DL have been moving up 5 kg pr. week consistently, but the BP is simply stuck there :/
Anyway.. I've always been fattish or skinny-fat, so i really wanna lose those "love handles" and get a six-pack - but reading other posts i've started to consider what i'd really look like if i lost more fat.
I must admit, it doesn't look like i have a ton of muscle mass. And also with clothes on, it doesn't really look like i train.
Which is why i was wondering if it would be better for aesthetics (and obviously strength) if i switched to a slow bulk (like 200-300 kcal surplus)?
Guess it's either that, or keep going a bit longer and try to get to maybe 10% bodyfat before starting a bulk.
Waist circumference: 85 cm
Bodyfat % (navy method): 15%
Calibers: 11.5% (probably me who isn't doing it right, but also use it mainly to track progress)
What would you do?
