It all really boils down to individual goals. There is no set time that you should quit bulking and start cutting. Although I would keep in mind that the more bf you accumalate the longer you will have to cut to get back down to a low bf%. Dieting for long periods of time is not really ideal IMO.

I'm 130lb and bulking currently. I'm relatively new to the weightlifting scene and need some advice. I hear that the bulking cycle should last for 6-8 weeks or so. What should I do after that? maintainence or cut? and for how long?
Thanks a lot
