    Not sure where you started but looking good bud. Keep it up what kind of training are you doing?

    I started at 147 with 12" arms so I've come a long way. As far as my training it's been pretty sparatic the last month with work but I usually like to follow a push, pull, upper, lower routine. My plans were to either cut a bit or just maintain for summer. Any advice for a bulking cycle?

    Look good man.
    Have some size. For summer its really up to you. You can cut using PSMF which is extreme but works.Especially at your leaness,you'll cut up fairly quick.
    Whats your volume/frequency/intensity o your workouts look like?

    I have been following this for the last couple weeks hitting higher reps with less weight. Not my choice for a routine but I've been working out with a buddy and just doing what he dose for the last couple weeks. My overall goal is 200 lbs ~12%bf but my priority is just getting stronger first.

    But what about the volume and intensity? There have been studies where light weight gained just as much muscles.
    But really it's getting the body to adapt to something new.
    As far as the training, I would up the frequency .For example Biceps 2-3 times a week.Same with chest ,legs etc. But keep the volume the same.
    Not much volume is needed really.Just enough.
    And stick with compounds.
    I am assuming you do a lot of iso exercises considering you dedicate a day to just hams and glutes?

    Honestly I cant exactly remember.


    Edit:Found a link that cites several.
    https://builtwithscience.com/light-w...heavy-weights/

    I still believe in progressive overload regardless of the intensity used of course. I never go below 65 percent of my ORM even with sets of 12.

    Like I said Ive just been following what a friend of mine has been doing. Figured it would be a good to take a break from hitting everything 2x a week.

    What would be best to run with test to help with lean muscle gains and have the least side effects?

    Do another blast and add an oral. The rest is up to you. Increase cals to bulk, decrease cals to harden up. Personally, i think everyones first few cycles should be all about adding mass and maintaining a calorie surplus. Cant go wrong with test and dbol

    Why do I feel like OP made this thread hoping someone would tell him to go on a cycle?

    I tried some dbol in my first blast after about a week I stopped because it made me super tired.

    Don't mean to sound rude but you look like you could dial in on your training and diet a bit before jumping on

    Thats stinks. Dbol makes me feel awesome. I guess you could try and experiement with something else. Maybe tbol? Tbol doesnt aromatize which is a plus

    I mean he is on a steroid forum lol. The best we can do is offer our “educated” opinions. I probably should have asked when his last blast was
