BB type routine for a few months should take care of that. Are you still going to be eating at a deficit while doing this?

Nope, done with diet. Been a steady 175. I'm going to do this for 8-12 months, will start on a slight caloric surplus.

45 mins of cardio everyday makes it not a BB routine, no?

Ah yes, that's the one thing I sorta second guessed in the program. I did ask for an old school bodybuilding program though and they did a shit ton of slow steady state cardio.

IIRC you're a bit shorter with roughly the same muscle mass so you're maintenance should be lower than mine. 2200-2300 is about 500 calorie deficit or slightly more if so, and thats not a huge deficit. Anyway, I don't think you should go down to 2000 or below.

 

Nice with the sumo DLs, btw.

Just make sure you don't round your lower back at the start. I'm very strong off the floor with a rounded back sumo (can easily pull my conventional 1RM for reps) but it puts too much stress on the back. Sumos are tricky in that way since they can feel right when your form is terrible. You won't notice until you see it on film. Its a technically much harder lift than conventional DLs. Just a word of caution.

 

I can chime in with my view:

 

People with shorter limbs and/or longer torso will be in a better pulling position with sumo.

Sumo also puts less strain on the low back as the torso is more vertical and you use more quad strength than lower back in comparison to a conventional deadlift. Same thing as front squats versus back squats.

 

For those reasons, sumo tends to work better than conventionals if you have lower back problems. 

 

 

Ok, thanks, I felt as though my back was straight but I'll take a video to check.  @fuji - I might alternate between them every couple months or start doing both later, but my lower back has been bothering me so I am trying to be careful for now.  My hips/glutes need more work at the moment anyway.

All you guys with your fancy calorie counting. The only difference between eating while "bulking" and cutting for me is how much junk food I eat. Bulking = candy with lunch, candy after workout, and ice cream after dinner. Cutting = candy after workout only.

Decided to go rock climbing followed by a jog so I could eat more food.

Skip to about the 17:30 mark. Obviously the guy in the middle won.
