cut, then bulk?
Just wanted some opinions guys, I've been dieting with cardio 4x a week for about a week now. Is this enough to loose sufficient weight. Also, should I continue to cut, before bulking up? or bulk up to my goal, then focus on cutting. I'm just curious what you guys all think. I'm currently about 240 w/ about 20% bf, i want to be a solid 240 w/ about 12-15% bf, any suggestions?

how tall are you? 240 12% is pretty big imo

before useing AAS most try to get BF% around 10-15%...i aim for around 12%...so i can put on lean muscle and try to avoid putting on more fat

I would think it would make sense to bulk then cut......whats the point of working so hard for a firm cut body if your just gonna cover it all up and then have to do it all over again?

six three and a half. i used to weigh about 280 as the stretch marks around my waist speak for that. i was fat and not muscular at all. My senior year i became obssessed w/ running, got down to 180 pounds, and looked like a skeleton. i had zero muscle. In the four years since then, I averaged out at about 225, since starting lifting last year, I've worked my way to the present weight. I don't think 240 12-15% is entirely unrealistic, maybe i'm wrong.

I would get the bf down before you started thinking about bulking. What kind of cardio are you doing, and for how long?

no not at all for being 6'3" I would drop a little fat but i wouldnt worry about getting below 12%, then start bulkin, cuz like dalton5 said when you bulk odds are you'll put some fat back on which will be a little discouraging

Yeah....but I have never been a big fan of the eliptical machines though. I prefer the stairmaster.

I don't really like too much either, but my fat ass gets tired to quick on the treadmill, maybe I'll give the stairmaster a try. Thanks again.
