View Full Version : When to start bulking

08-21-2003, 07:36 AM
For the last couple of months Ive been cutting and Ive got to the stage where I can start to see my abs.
This is the first time Ive seen them since I started drinking too much beer a couple of years back :D
As part of my cutting I dont drink so I think this has been a big help.
Im 5ft11 and now about 165lb.
What level of body fat do you guys go down to until you start bulking?
Do you think I need to cut for a bit longer?

Sorry for all the questions Im still a :newbie:

For what it's worth, I am also 5'11 and went from 180 to 165.

I am about 13.5% morning/10.5% evening bf according to my Tanita scale and recently started bulking.

I think it's important to establish the confidence that you can without a doubt cut when the bulking is over. This is because as you bulk, you will start to see some fat reappear and it's enough to make you turn around and cut again but short cycles may not be the best way to a better body.

Hope this helps.
