    Drop some fat? Or keep bulking? Pics inside

    Went from 167 to 183 over a long period. Didnt really experience the gains i thought i would. Almost thinking every bit of that weight went to my stomach. Plan was to continue bulking until january or so but im getting a bit frustrated with my physique at the moment. What would u guys do? Mini cut or cut or continue bulking and try to add a few more pounds?

    This sentence means you should start cutting. Once you lose some fat, those new muscles will show better. That and the fact that you are up 16 lbs. Also, you don't look fat, but probably look to be at a good point to cut in my opinion.

    ETA: You could try maintenance for a little bit if you wanted.
    Back at it again after being away from the forums for a few years. Was 280+ at the beginning of the year (290 on Dec 13, 2018).

    If you eat at maintenance/slightly below, lift with good form meaning mind muscle connection + time under tension you will look shredded in no time.



    If you want an example, watch this and follow the tempo closely: youtu.be/vd2vkCjIYNw?t=235
    Thanks for the feedback. So youre saying just eat at maintenance? Ive really barely eaten over maintenance its taken me a year to put on the 15 lbs i did it so slow and was so paranoid about fat gain. I think i shoulda got leaner before the bulk tho

    I think that message from 11num was removed as spam?

    If it has been a year then I would cut. You look to me to be where most on here recommend a cut to show off the gains. Maintenance for a couple weeks is a possibility, but not needed before a cut (recommended before a bulk though). Why wait? There is nothing special about Jan 1st other than all the noobs at the gym. Besides, if you start now then your holiday photos will look better xD I really think you will be happy with how you look after a couple months of cutting.

    True. One thing tho is im going on a weeklong family vacation next month and wont be training. Would that mess me up any? Being in a deficit and not training for maybe a week and a half. Thinking maybe stay in slight surplus til i get back from vacation then jump into the cut

    Sounds like a plan. Gotta enjoy vacations. Plus you are gaining so slow that a pound or two won't make a difference.
