Hi, I would like to first of all thank anyone willing to help me out! I need some help deciding what to do for my next training Phase. I was thinking of doing a bulk for explosion and strength in the early/mid off season (now) then go on a cut in the late off season and go for lean strength in the season.
A little about me and my experience with lifting:
I am 16 years and 11 months old, 5' 11" and 145 pounds. I don't know what type of body I have but I gain and lose fat easily. I do the 300 hurdles and 400 meter in Track. I have just completed P90X with very mixed results. Week 7 I was about 140 pounds, and 9% body fat. I was feeling very light but the diet eventually screwed me up as I was taking in 1800 calories a day. After week 7 I couldn't control my eating and now I'm at 15% body fat (somehow basically all on my stomach and some of my upper legs). I have gone from doing 0 pull ups to 12 in 12 weeks so I would say that p90x was definitely good for me as a beginning to lifting though. Since I just did a cutting phase, albeit not too successfully, my question is should I go through a clean bulk even at 15% body fat? I have a workout buddy who is bulking so I would be lifting heavy weights now unless I decide that cutting would be better. I definitely need more muscle mass in my opinion as I am not as fast/strong as I would like to be.
My ultimate goal would be to be the best I can be for track. For that to happen, I know I need more muscle.
What would you guys suggest? Thanks again!
