Bulking/Cutting - What are your timelines?
 
Hey guys,

I'm just getting ready to start another cutting cycle, and I started wondering how long you guys bulk for, and how long you cut for throughout the year?

The reason I ask this, is because a lot of my BB friends bulk during the winter and basically start cutting shortly before summer (I guess to get buffed for the beach and stuff). I on the other hand don't really have any particular time of year, so what I tend to do is go by whatever my body is telling me. This last bulking cycle of mine has only been about 3 months long, but I really feel I'm ready to start cutting. I usually wait for a week or so after I start feeling the "need" to change my program, just to ensure it's not on a whim. What do you guys do?

Thanks

Raven

Because I started out light weight and stuff ive been bulking for like 6 months I pretty much just swapped out fat for muscle but now im goin up in weight and size.

I only cut whenever I feel fat, or cant see any ab muscle. Rest of the time, I eat like a yeti and train like a beast. :D

LOL! Thanks
 
That "yeti" comment cracked me up! :D

I'm glad there is atleast one other person that just goes by what their body tells them. Still, some of my friends tell me that I switch from bulking to cutting far too often and that it's very hard on my body. I dunno, I guess I'll just keep doing what I'm doing until I feel it doesn't work anymore.

Thanks for the comments guys!

I bulked since birth ... now i'm cutting till december ... then i'll bulk again. its not so much of a winter summer thing, its just december is how long it will take me to shed this much fat.

U might have some fat on u but 16%(mine) and 18%(yours) are really close and u are way bigger than me. I wont complain if I where u. I wish I looked like a yeti, so that I can scare u all mofo's. :D

During Sept-Jan is my serious all out bulking time of year. Around March I will cut until probably May and then I go into a sort of mini bulk/cut for the remaining months depending on what I am doing at the time. I like to stay lean while still trying to increase muscle.

True, Thats where Im at. Learning how to cut now, I am putting back on a little weight so my body stays happy at the 200 mark. Trying to keep it clean. Then cut again. Then a bulk in nov-dec area.

hahah well my 18% is getting very close to your 16%. My prediction is 222 by weeks end. And I decided to quit drinking, so it will make the cutter so much more effective.

I cant wait to see the low 200's again.
