    How long to bulk?






    I've been on a bulking diet for 4 weeks (I'm on a 1-AD cycle,too). I am eating very clean, so my body fat is about the same as before - 12.5%. I also didn't up my calories to 4-5k like I've seen some ppl here doing, and kept it to 3.3k/day.
    My weight went from 158lbs to 167.5 lbs in that period, and I happy with the results so far. I still got 2 more weeks on 1-AD and another 4 weeks during PCT. My goal for this year is 180lbs @ 7-8%BF. Should I keep bulking until I get to 185-190 and then cut or should I start cutting 2 weeks after my PCT (which will be a total of 12 weeks on a bulking diet) with whatever weight I get to and then start bulking again until I get to my goal?

    You can bulk however long you feel comfortable bulking Depends on how big you want to be, how much bodyfat you are comfortable carryin etc. While you are on PCT I wouldn't start cutting Keep your cals up at maintenance. You can start cutting after PCT when you are ready.

    Thanx, Jodi. Yeah, that's why I said I still have another 4 weeks to keep my kal up, because of the PCT period.

    If you want to be Jay big, then you'll probably want to keep bulking for awhile

    is it common to see BF% increase during pct due to the low nat test levels, reduced training volume/frequency and above maintenance cals?

    I would bulk until either you reach your goal weight in LBM or your body fat gets out of control. IMO, for a male that's around a max of 18%.
