View Full Version : Chance of losing bf during clean bulk?

09-28-2005, 09:15 AM
I started out in mid-June at 5'11'' 208lbs. at roughly 25% bodyfat...right now I'm approx. 162lbs. at 14%...been cutting all summer...never worked out before then...I'm just as strong now as I was when I first started, lost quite a bit of muscle, then put some on, it's about even right now...

My goal right now is 6-7%, at 155lbs-160lbs...

Is there any chance in lowering my bodyfat % during a clean bulk right now, I'm still relatively new to working out, i should still be getting some newbie gains, or should I continue cutting until i get my bodyfat % down to the single digits, then do small bulks and small cuts...

and is there anything wrong with eating the same thing everyday except cheat days?

If your weight/body fat numbers are correct, you lost about 16lbs of LBM. I personally think you could have done better if you went slower, but too late now. If you're relatively new to the game, you could probably pull off a successful recomposition if you play your cards right. Look into UD2.0.

yeah...i didn't know as much as i do now and i wasn't lifting hard and doing way too much cardio at the beginning of the cut...
