    That's exactly what I'm starting to do right now. We can compare notes

    I tried that last 3 months, I thought it was a bit of a dissapointment to see all the weight I gained lost so quickly. Kinda hard on the motivation. But I did like to get in some cardio (which I like), and got a pause in the large amounts of food I have to eat (which I find hard). Overall the pause did me well and I think I will repeat it (but after summer, now it's about proper cut-time.)

    I think ideal bulk and cuts are around 12 weeks.

    I have a related question, although not exactly the same. I have heard that bulking too long is a bad idea because your body will adapt to the excess calories at some point. I was bulking for about a year until recently I learned that this was the case, then I began to cut.

    I know it is hard to say exactly because of different genetics and such, but about how long is too long to be bulking?
