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 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?
The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
