    Arrow Opinions on whether to bulk or cut, reps inside

    Hi. Just returned to lifting to accompany my BJJ training.

    Just upped calories a bit to around maintenance or 10% above. Training is Lyle's GBR 3 days a week alternating A/B/A/B/A/B with RPT used for the main lifts.

    BJJ training is every day except Sunday, and i'll also take Friday off if feeling very tired.

    As well as your recommendations on whether to settle in for a long mass gain phase or cut more i'd appreciate any estimates of my BF %.



    Good day

    Yea man you already look fairly lean so i'd focus on mass and strength atm. Bf i would say is maybe 12ish but hard to tell since you don't have much size and you were flexing in the pics

    Thanks for the replies so far, this is very encouraging for me.

    Though i'd have to be closer to 15% than 12% no? I suppose it is difficult to judge from the lighting in those photos.

    I'd say around 12% maybe as high as 14, max. Just bulk man, eat in a slight surplus and gain some weight on the bars .

    That's the plan bro. My weight class atm for competing in bjj is <181lbs so as long as I can stay within a few lbs of that i'll be happy. Though that might involve mini-cuts every so often.

    Any experience with this or advice for it? I'm wary of the potential for wheel spinning so I do plan to bulk for the next 4-6 months at least.

    I'm liking this consensus, almost as much as I like eating.

    I'm 23.

    Just get on a proven program and make some progress, slow and steady. Also keep your protein 0.85/lbs and fat to a minimum og 0.35/lbs, you probably already know this tho. Yea, 2-4 week cuts sounds like a great idea to keep some BF away while bulking.
