Bulk or cut first?
I'm aware it is possible to do both on a very strict diet and workout routine but which would be more effective if the end goal is to be bigger with a lower body fat percentage? calories burn quicker with more muscle right? Although a tiny amount more I know but would it be easier to bulk then cut the fat or the other way around? or if you want to do both what would your calorie intake have to be?
...Actually what if you were to have a slight calorie deflict but still consumed about 1.5 g of protein for every pound of bodyweight??
That's not how it works. Eat clean during you're bulking phase and you'll keep your bf% relatively low. Shoot for 40g of protein, 70g of carbs and about 10g of fat per meal 5 - 6 times a day. 30-50-20 macros.
At your size cutting isn't something you're going to have to worry too much about. Eat clean and keep working hard. That's what it takes.
Make sure you're getting quality protein from chicken breast and fish, and rice and potatoes, and nutrient dense veghies. Stay away from crap eating and you can bulk without having to worry about losing that precious 6pac haha. I put on about 40lbs (from 145 - 180) and kept mine throughout the entire time because I busted my ass and kept my crap food to a minimum. "Bulking one day and cutting the next" doesn't even make sense. It's not an exact science, but there are ways the human body work...and ways it just doesn't.
Alright thanks man, very helpful reply and I'll make sure to avoid eating sh*t, don't wanna lose the abs aha
