    Trouble areas after cut

    Are your trouble areas the first places you gain fat after a cut? For me its lower back near the sides and the area from my nipple into my armpit. Im worried all this cutting will be for nothing if i look like crap when i start to bulk

    If that's what you mean by trouble areas, then yeah...usually for guys the lower stomach/love handles are the first to gain and last to lose.

    Unfortunately that's also the nature of bulking, even a lean bulk will result in some fat gain...ideally you manage it by not bulking past a certain body fat level. Ultimately when you are more or less happy with your progress, you maintain and keep lifting and hopefully make incremental improvements from there without ever going into beast bulk again.

    For me it's my belly and love handles and yes, they start to grow as soon as I start bulking. I think the key is not to get discouraged and accept that fat gain is part of the bulking process, while remembering that fat loss is a faster process and you can just cut (while lifting) later.
