View Full Version : Should I go on a cut diet for a little while now?

10-28-2005, 11:59 AM
Im 6'2'' and weigh about 210 right now. My goal is to be a trim 210 by summer. Right now I could stand to lose 10 or so lbs.

Anyway should I just keep bulking till I hit 220 and then go on a cut or should I try a mini cut out now?

Bulk to 230. And then cut to the BF% you want. If you want to see your abs, it will be around 10% BF.

Is it possible to hit a weight plataue?

I started at 170. Im now 210. I cant imagine putting on 20 more lbs without it being mostly fat.

Your maximum muscle size is dictated by genetics, if anything, but I don't think you're going to hit it by 230 at 6'1.

I would just try and maintain for a few weeks and see how that goes

If you want to be a trim 210 and youre 210 right now I would def. gain a good 15lb+ first

If you want to be ripped to shreds at 210 you would have to be at least 235-245 I would think.

What's your current bodyfat percentage? Not quite sure we can just give you a weight you need to be in order to start cutting and end up at a ripped 210 unless we know your bodyfat percentage (and that is assuming you keep that bf% as you bulk).

How can you figure out your bf %?

How can you figure out your bf %?

Their are a couple ways. Most common ways are by bodyfat calipers. Most accurate way is hydrostatic weighing. Check out, http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/magazine/ultimatebodyfattestingguide.htm it has some good information about different methods etc.
