    How long should a bulking phase last?

    How long should a bulking phase last before moving to a cutting phase. Likewise, how long should a cutting phase last?

    it depends on what ur goal is, set a weight that u would like to get up to and bulk up untill u reach that goal, same for cutting. setting goals will allow u plan out what u want to accomplish and how long it will take.

    Basically I have four months in which to complete a bulk/cut cycle before I leave for South America. By then I want to be as cut and fit as possible. Should I just do two months of each? or a month of bulking and one of cutting?

    Well, I started lifting three years ago, and I've been bulking now for around three years. Can't be ****ed cutting - eating anything you want and bulking is far easier than trying to cut when you have the dedication I do

    As simple as that..

    IMO, for sure you should be trying to gain as little fat as possible when you bulk, but chances are good that if you don't gain some fat you're not gaining muscle as fast as you could.

    Remember also that short-term cuts work very well.

    I do about 2 weeks of cut every about 3 months or so.

    You should do either one until you feel that you are big or ripped enough, then do the other. Dont put a limit on it.
