    Q: at what do you determine that you should stop bulking-up and eating bigger meals for mass, and start cutting?
    A: once i ran out of dumbells and all the olympic bars were all bent up i was like well might as well start cutting

    just get back in the gym and keep lifting.
    come on now... with the lifts in your signature, you certainly are no stranger to the iron game - this is something you should already know....

    Usually when I get sick, I'll drop anywhere from 5-8lbs of bodyweight depending on how sick I am. It will usually take me about a month to recover and get back where I was. Fortunately, I don't get sick very often.
