    Cut or Bulk-Main Thread (Post your Cut/Bulk Questions here!)

    No spamming, your question will be answered, be polite, and try to multi quote instead of posting quotes individually.


    Do not be unable to take Harsh criticism if you post in this thread asking for advice!!


    I see threads daily asking ”should I cut or bulk?” To cut down on all these threads (no pun intended) , post your questions/pictures into this thread.

    When posting remember to:
    1) Post Bodyweight
    2) Height
    3) Progress Pictures (if able to)
    4) Your own Body fat Estimate
    5) Current Lifts
    6) Goals (Lift-wise, Body fat wise, Lifting wise-Strength, Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, etc)
    7) Current Routine
    8) Questions about diet (links below will provide many answers-please read them)

    Links for further help and aid:

    Skinny Fat Help Video Thread

    Newbies Guide to Basic Nutritional Knowledge

    Calculating Calories and Macro Nutrients

    Research and Extra sites for Nutrition


    Hoping this helps some people out, and provides a source for Cut and Bulk threads, and keeps them together so new lifters can compare their results with other new lifters!

    Anybody can help answer these questions, do not let this thread be entitled to me. This is just a help for the community!

    Good thread. So I started my bulk yesterday I checked out the calculate your cals/macro link before. I came to the conclusion since I maintain around 2300 cals I could bulk at 2800 calories.

    Well my fullbody workout yesterday that Derek posted on here that was created by RegPark took 2 hours. I ate 2820 cals. Today I woke up and lost 1.5 lbs. how much should I be eating per day to gain 1 lb a week? 20x my bodyweight? I see in the link 20x ur bodyweight I for people who train 20+ hrs a week. Im only gonna be lifting 6 hours a week and walking 2 miles on off days.
    Lifetime PR's

    Squat 445 w/ wraps (405 raw no wraps)
    Competition Bench 275
    Deadlift 435

    Walking 2 miles, won't really be a factor. You are currently eating, 2800, and your maintain at 2300?

    You must have weighted yourself in the morning when you weigh lighter (less bloat). Really, the best way to find out how much you need to eat is trail and error, so i suggest bumping it up to 3000, and see how that works for you. If you still are losing, bump it up by another 200-300 calories

    Well, you are doing cardio on those days, so keep the calories at the same height. If too much fat starts getting on lower it a tad, but if you lsoe weight just raise it.
