Hey all, i have 5 months to train in any way i want, with unlimited access to the gym 24/7 (military base) before i leave my current residence.....currently i am 18yrs old, 5'9" tall, 180lbs at around 15-16% BF...my ultimate goal is to be big AND cut, not just skinny ripped....so would you say i should bulk until i leave and then cut when i get to my new place....or should i start cutting now, be done cutting by the time i leave, and start a slow clean bulk when i get to my new residence.....
also, as far as calories, on a bulk i would eat around 4000, on a cut around 2500...do these numbers sound about right for my stats?...(btw i lift 5 days a week, and on a cut i would add in cardio at least 4-5 days a week as well....)

I think you should cut. "Short" people look awful when they're bodyfat gets too high and 15-16%BF is about as high as I think you'd ever want to go.
hey, hey. he's not short. I think 5' 9" is average!!!

6'0" is average...and I'm definitely far below that. But I'm usually the tallest one laying down *cough, cough*...so I'm good

6 feet! I've only got about 6 inches!
if u still have to go through bootcamp i think u'd be better off bulking now and then when bootcamp comes around that'll be good for ur cut.. both my bro and cousin lost a lot of fat from bootcamp and maintained a lot of their size..
