Just want to get an idea of how everyone else bulks. So....

1) How long do you usually bulk for? (weeks, months, etc.)

2) When you are at the end of bulking, what is your waist size usually at?


Yeah yeah, I know everyone is different, different metabolisms, different goals, blah blah blah... just wanna get a general idea.

Thanks.

im currently bulking right now (and if you dont mind i'dlike to throw out 1 more question since we're on the subject).

about how many inches do you gain on your wasit per pound of weight gained? like for example - 1 inch gain on wasit with a 15 pound weight gain?

I bulked for 7 months. Put on a little over 40lbs, BF from about 10-11 to about 16:eek: , waist from about 31 to a loose 34 (mainly from glute size increase :D). Needless to say it's wasn't a wonderfully planned bulk, but I put on a lot of muscle so... you live, you learn, then you get Luvs (TM).

My last bulk was about 3 months long. My waist size went from 31" to 33". My weight went from 170 lbs. to 190 lbs. I've been cutting for about 2 months now. I can almost get back into my 31" pants again. It's good to be trim again, but it gets expensive buying all these different size pants.

My last bulk cycle I went from approx 150lb's to 230lb's in about 8 months.Needless to say I took it a bit too far.I dropped back down to 210,and i levelled off there for a while.Im now going to cut to a lowish bodyfat % for a while,so Ill probably go down to approx 180,and see how I look.I probably should have stopped bulking at about 210lbs,but once you have that momentum going,it is quite easy to not realise that you are becomoing a fatass.

My last bulk lasted for 2 months, and went to a 33'' waist size.

I think I gained a pants size at about 10lbs. Personally I having trouble letting myself get fat in order to look good. I am cutting again. I am gonna try alot slower bulk next time. I love the wos and strength gains while bulking but I spend so much time getting rid of the fat I gained I am not sure if its worth it.

Exactly my thoughts. I don't look good with extra fat either and I'm currently cutting.

I went from 170 to 215. A lot of muscle gain. From waist 33 to 36. Over the winter I got lazy and started eating crap while dropping my routine and went to 205 with a fat increase. Now I'm cutting to get rid of the gut

I am not willing to get fat in order to get buff

I went from roughly a 29 inch waist to about a 33 inch waist gaining roughly 40lbs. I plan on gaining another 15-20lbs before I cut again, hopefully I won't become too much of a fat ass.

this might be a tand OT, but how do you guys measure your waist? like where? ive heard at the navel, ust above the navel, the skinniest part of the wasit. which do you guys consider the "waist measurment"

I go through the navel. Measure in the morning before a meal, I've noticed I can balloon all the way up to 34 inches during the day, but I'm about 32.5-33 in the morning.
