Please, don't kill me, I used search, but couldnt find a definitve answer, so I was wondering if someone could clear. I understand what bulking and cutting are, I was jsut wondering if you guys could provide and example or something like between person A who is cutting and person B who is bulking, in terms of thier workouts and diet. Thanks in advance.
bulking you take in more cals then your body uses
cutting you use more cals then you take in
workouts don't have to vary at all
PRs: 655/525/645 = 1825 Total
Meet PRs: Bench Only 525
Deadlifts bring people together. It's a fact. - Chris Rodgers
it's not necessary to change what you eat...
one just changes the number of calories they take in
during a bulk, you're in a caloric surplus
...it's a deficit during a cut
so person A eats 2500 calories per day 30/40/30 during a bulk
person A eats just 2000 calories per day 30/40/30 during a cut.... same diet, smaller portions

A bulk is when you are in a calorie surplus by any amounts ranging from a couple of hundred upwards. you bulk to gain muscle/weight and depending on the amount of th surplus will depends on the rate of the gain. a cut is when you are in a calorie deficit and is used to loose weight. again depending on the deficit will depend on the rate of weight loss and the amount of lean body mass kept
weight 202 - (bf around 14%)
Bench - 286
deadlift - new pr on the 23/12/06 190 kilo (430 pound)
squat - 264 ATF
200 pound at 10% bf by next summer
Nice read. Excellent.

Actually when cutting you should lower the volume of your workout just a little from when you are bulking, but not by much, say 20% less.

It's all been stated.
Bulking - more calories eaten than burned in a day.
Cutting - more calories burned than eaten in a day.

I'd disagree a little with the routine change. A little more volume when there is plenty of nutrients in the system is always a good thing in my mind.
