I'm coming off my first bulk, the details of which can be found here.
I was running on about 3,750-4,250 calories towards the end of my bulk, which was giving me diminishing returns. To be honest, I wasn't doing the best job in tracking. This is costing me a bit now as I'm not quite sure where to set my cals to start my cut. Using the 'better safe that sorry' approach I'm going to go for 3,000/day with about 100g fat/200-250g protein. We'll see where this leaves me after a few weeks and adjustments may be necessary.
Current Weight: 219-224 range
I'll be updating my weight and measurements every 2 weeks.
I'd put myself at 17% to 18% bf at the moment.
My main goal by year end is to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 230 lbs/13% bf, which would be an increase of about 18-20 pounds LBM from now. It's a lofty goal but that's why it's there.
Enough blabber. I have some entries to catch up on!
