Originally I just wanted to be huge-- I didn't care much about fat. But then I started having a lil extra chub and I don't like it anymore :(

My goal is to be 180 at 8-10%.




Even though I'd get alot stronger and bigger, sometimes girls would say, "so do you still work out?? you lost your abs!" :(









Please excuse the pictures I tried to get as close to the same poses as I could.

My question is, should I try and cut down to 8% and do a VERY slow(years) bulk? Or should I continue bulking/cutting?


Edit:
oh ya stats

arms: 32.5cm -> 34.5cm
bench- 135 x5 to 175x3
squat - 155x5 -> 195-5x5
deadlift - only started doing deadlift while bulking. it slowly went up (265x1)

at what point were you chubby? i'm assuming you're talking about the middle picture and if that's the case you look like a healthy lifter. You have a good base to work with, do not cut and lose what you already have because you no longer have abbs.

your squat looks low compared to your bench. i'm sure you're like everyone else…my self included in that bench is important, that's fine just remember that squatting and deadlifting is just as important. How tall are you?

I'm going to guess around 5'8, 5'9. If you're able to cut as easily as it sounds, get to 180 then reevaluate the situation.

It's like, when you're skinny, at least you have the 6 pack right, but when you're huge, doesn't matter if you have a 6 pack. But it's the inbetween part where you're most insecure :P (not huge, not skinny, no 6 pack)

Alright bulking it is! thanks guys :)

You have a good frame, just continue to bulk, dude. I was much skinnier when I first started lifting (6'2" 160-170 lbs) and also freaked when I first put on a little "chub". Then I realized it was silly to worry about, continued to bulk, and now am a nice, lean 205.

Who cares if girls notice your abs? Good arms, a broad back, a defined chest, and bad ass legs are way better than a 6 pack any day.

My goal is to be really cut and semi-big(lol) I think at 180-190 at 5'10" it should be decent size?
I don't really plan to compete. I'd understand bulking huge and cutting for you competitive guys.

Btw thanks alot for the advice guys I'm continuing my bulk.

I am 177-178cm ish? so about 5'10"

Slow bulk. I am currently moving up in all my lifts, and decreasing my bf% at the same time. It's nice getting back that definition while still adding muscle. And to me, it's worth it not feeling fat. But that's just me.

Eatz moer prot33n!

But no, man you look like you're on your way up, keep up the gewd work. In a year or two's time you'll be pushing 270x5 and you'll be ripped, and all the girls will love you and all the guys will be scared of you, so keep up tha' fiiiiine work!
