Have to cut, I'm not pretty enough yet
But honestly, if strength is secondary, you'd be better off staying lean and taking longer to work your way up to 190 than just try to get there through bulking. You're going to be like 210+ before you have enough LBM to cut down to that.
I'm perfectly fine with that. For one period in my life i'll totally be all power gut heavy, it's going to be awesome while it lasts. I was even thinking of going as heavy as 225.
I do think you're absolutely incorrect though, 10 months of eating at a heavy surplus, working out hard as fuck 5 days a week, then cutting for 2-4 months will get me where I want aesthetically much, much faster than if I dieted down to 8% BF, then did a "slow, controlled bulk" up to my goal weight, after which i'd still need to cut for at least a month or two.
