    Should I bulk or cut?

    Hello community, I am new to these parts of town and being a novice when it comes to dieting and nutrition I have a couple of questions. I am a 25 male with a height of 6'5 and currently weighs 195 pounds. For most of my life I was I was on the lighter side of weight for my height and mostly weighed around 180 pounds, but after I stopped basketball I gained around 10 pounds and most of my abs went away. My goal is to eventually gain weight and be somewhere between 200-210 pounds but want to make lean gains. I would like to see my abs again and don't know the proper way of achieve to achieve this goal. Should I cut till I get my abs back then lean bulk till I get to 200-210 or should I bulk now and cut later? Also, what exercise are good for building up your chest?

    Thanks

    If you cut now, you won't get all the way to a lean point before looking too skinny. You can do some fat loss... but realise it's just 1 phase out of several you'll have to go through.

    Really, I think mass gain is best next - you don't have to pile on weight, keep calorie surplus small but consistent - gain no more than 1-3lbs a month.

    Fellow 6'5"er here. Yeah at your height you have the distinct advantage of being able to mass gain without looking too fat (at least in clothes) for quite a while. Take the advice above and build (while lifting weights on a proven program) for at least a year. Aim to put on about 25-30 lbs over the next 12 months, then you can switch into a fat loss mode after that and strip away some of the jiggly stuff.

    Nobody gets there in 1 shot, you're probably going to have to do several bulk/cut cycles to get where you want to be.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.
