    How long is your bulk/cut cylce?






    5' 10" - 180 lbs.
    37 years old.

    Since it is winter, I am bulking now. I am ignoring the pocket of fat I still have around the middle knowing I need to grow overall before I cut again.

    How long is your typical bulk, then cut cycle?
    My plan was to bulk two months / cut one. And repeat.

    That just depends on you, I believe. Usually I like to put a pretty large maintenance cycle in-between a cut and bulk cycle.

    Absolutely, you never want to immediately follow a bulk cycle with a cut cycle. You will lose a lot of that hard earned mass. A maintenance cycle allows your body to get used to the extra weight and this will help to preserve mass during the cutting phase. I usually do 8-12 weeks on a bulk...then ride the maintenance wave for at least that long, then cut. Works for me anyway.

    Thanks.
    New to bulking (intentionally, anyway). Never knew the pattern.
