    Transition from cut to bulk

    In another 2 or 3 weeks - I'll be ending my cut and starting a bulk. Is there a proper way to transition to eating more. Should I eat regular for a week before I start eating like a madman? How long does it take before my lifts start increasing (assuming I lift hard 3 to 5 times a week) and eat enough? Will it happen right away - 1 week - 2 weeks???

    Thanks for the replies!

    Cut out cardio gradually, and possibly think twice about "eating like a madman."

    Not sure what kind of cut you're using, but when coming off a CKD cut I sloooooooowwwwwwwwwly raise carbs and drop fat for the first 2 weeks off of it until I'm at my regular maintenance ratios.

    Then I start raising cals for my bulk.
