    Am I hitting my genetic limit when bulking?

    I am coming towards the end of my cut and I am starting to think about my bulking strategy for this winter. I have bulked up twice already in the past and both times I stopped bulking between 220-230lb. During both of those bulking sessions my intentions were to bulk up more but I ended them early because I stopped seeing strength increases. Up until 220ish I see good progress on my lifts as my bodyweight increased. However beyond 220 my bodyweight was going up but my lifts were not improving.

    I am training naturally so the thought came that maybe my body just doesnt have the hormone levels to support more lean mass. Could this be the case or was my training strategy simply not working anymore? I was training a fairly standard 5 day split focusing on the big compounds and simply adding weight progressively.
