    gain as much, when this lean???






    as of now, during bulk cycles, I travel between 10% to 12%, then , during cut, go back to 10.

    would i make as good of gains if I stayed leaner, going between 9 and 11? or even 8 and 10?

    Basically I go about 10-12% during bulk and around 5-6% After getting cut. You should only be jumping 2% bodyfat.. Well Not saying you shouldn't I often see a higher bf% whening bulked and a lower bf% when cut. And about the question, I'm sure the few bf% that your talking about will make much difference in your gains although they should be higher. How is your diet when your bulking?

    If you're a natural bodybuilder you will have a very difficult time gaining any LBM without gaining any fat. Keep the fat gain to a minimum, but you will need to gain some fat to gain LBM.

    well, im saying that i will bulk up to 12%bf , as soon as i get this high, i go to my cut cycle, dropping back to 10%. and my diet is just as clean on bulk as it is cut. lots of low gi carbs, good proteins, efas...

    -and yeah, prince, i know, haha, its really easy to get fat if natural. not sayin that i dont expect fat gains.
    ...just trying to figure out exactly how lean i can keep myself without hindering the gains.

    i often hear that between 12 and 14 is optimal... not sure if theres any truth to it though.
