View Full Version : Clean Bulk or Cut - Info and Pictures Included

Hi everyone,

I've taken a couple of mths off the gym due to injuries. I'm planning on going back soon and starting off slowly. I'm just contemplating on whether I should continue to bulk up or possibly cut. My goals are to pack on some mass/size/muscle and lose the fat (primarily in the stomach/love handles region). I was always a toothpick but during my bulking phase, there was a time where I ate junk a couple yrs ago and it caught up to me (sitting in my stomach). I have a really fast metabolism so any junk I eat occasionally doesn't affect me. I'm still skinny and small in many areas and fat in the waist.

I'm thinking about eating a lot (good food) and workout with minor cardio on the side. I would like to maintain my weight..or possibly add to it (my all time goal is 200-210lbs).

Also, is there anything I can do to somewhat straighten the huge curve on my lower back?

Here is how I measure out:

weght: 192lbs
height: 5'-11"
forearms: 11.5"
hips - 39"
waist - 40"
wrist - 7"
arms-relaxed - 14'
thigh - 20.5"
calves - 15"

I'm not sure how accurate this site is (http://www.bmi-calculator.net) but according to it "You have a Body Fat Percentage of 29.08%".

First priority: Watch what you eat. Lift heavy, bench, squat, deadlift. And a bit of cardio. After 6 months you can make the decision what you'd like to do.

Cut down to a lower bodyfat and then do a clean bulk or a slow recomp.

Not very. I just ran mine on there out of curiosity and it said Im at 26%bf. I just did a BodPod eval (http://www.bodpod.com/) and it said Im at 13%. Obviously I trust the BodPod...and I was told that they are sometimes even a tad high.

I'm 31% BMI according to that stupid thing. When right now I can see veins in certain places. Its totally inaccurate when considering active individuals, people that workout or do sports regularly for example. It didn't even take into account your sex!
