Just lokoing for any personal success with either diet or workout

On your bulking phase, try to space the meals out as evenly, throughout the day, as possible. You can still eat the same amount of calories, it's just that your body will utilize your nutrition more efficiently. When you eat a massive amount of food in a few settings, your stomach will distend. Your body won't be able to utilize the massive amounts of macronutrients and the excess will be stored as bodyfat. Very common with college athletes that eat on campus. With more portions throughout the day, your stomach will not distend as much and your body will utilize the macronutrients more efficiently.

For hip flexor work, the Power Wheel II is my personal favorite. DB side bends and russian twists are for the obliques. I like using the heavy db crunch on the stability ball as my staple ab exercise. Make sure you get a good pre-stretch in the abs. Have double the weight anchoring your feet that you are crunching with.

Try a cleaner bulk, or list your diet and we might be able to help more. If you have excess fat, stop bulking and cut your bf down and start it up again. If you not an ecto, it's hard to bulk continiously. Some people use the term bulk as an excuse to eat bad.

For some a taper is easier than others, it's genetic to a point as well.
Some people have a blocky straight waist that makes it harder, while others have a small waist that makes it easier.

You need to decide what your goal is. Bulk or cut, you have already gained almost 20lbs, some of which is water weight. You stated this is for future reference, so after your bulk is over, ditch your current diet and go to one that is more for fatloss and preserving muscle. btw, you don't eat enough fat in your diet. unsat that is. Also how much water do you consume/day.

Edit: what kind of diet is best for fat loss and preserving muscle. can you show me like a example or like a break down of meals, and protein, fats, carbs per day?

I find it HILARIOUS when I see people (women mostly) grabbing 20 lb. d-bells and doing these "side bends" as if they are going to magically work off the fat that is there, when they should have their fat ass on the treadmill.
I feel like saying, "Hey, all you are doing is making your waist THICKER", which is exactly what they are doing, but alas I don't have time to tell each person this. They are building their waist thicker and doing nothing to burn off the fat, which will in turn push the fat out FURTHER making their waist even bigger.
Ugggh, some people.

If u have a naturally large or blocky waist, there isnt much u can do about it, except to get as much fat off as u can and try and create the illusion of a small waist, by widening ur delts, lats and building up ur outer thigh sweep. Train abs hard, especially the lower abs and dont train obliques!!
