There's a shit ton to f very successful bbers who don't use traditional bulk/cut cycles as well though.

Edit: nvm that's just semantics. They still gain/cut and fluctuate in weight.

Yeah I don't think it's really possible to do a clean bulk from 4% bf

I'm definitely bigger than i was now at the lower range of BF% when i cut down the first couple times. I'm now about 164ish at 11ish percent when i was previously around 155 and 160. 5 lbs isn't super drastic but i also was never truly "bulking" in as much as "eating a lot and going to the gym".

Dramatic weight fluctuations such as typical cutting and bulking cycles is not good for your health.

Additionally, gaining significant amount of fat as you do in a normal bulk (where approx. half of gains are fat) makes it easier for you to gain fat in the future. You basically increase the amount of fat cells in your body so your body easier store fat.

Of course you can still cut and bulk effectively. Its just good to be aware of what it does to your body.

I drank away all my gains.

Time to hit it hard between now and reunion. Let's see what happens.

Do you think it is healthy to force the body to gain weight with fat gains along with it, that is what bulking essentially means? 

Do you think it is healthy for the average person to be in such caloric deficit that they reach 8-10% bf, that is what cutting usually is and what it mans to be "cut"? 

 

The latter can be done with good health if you train so much that you can still eat normal amounts of food. Most people can't sustain a sub 10% bf without constantly starving. If you train in a way that you can maintain that leanness (cardio) then its not necessarily unhealthy.

 

Edit: I refer to cutting and bulking in the traditional sense, with bf % fluctuations ranging from ~6-8% to over 20%. Just being in those end ranges is not healthy.

 

I should probably try to find that study when they checked the health markers of a bodybuilder from start of cut to competition.

I don't think it's unhealthy at all.

IIRC he is right that you "grow" fat cells that don't really go away (they just shrink., which make it easy to gain weight once you've been fat. That's the real downside to dreamer bulks.

As to being lean all the time being unhealthy, i'm not sure what that's about.

Being a fat shit is obviously unhealthy. Having some muscle doesn't mean you aren't a fat shit if you're carrying 20% bf.

I don't think 20%bf is that fat. Chubby, sure, but not fat. Especially for women (physiologically speaking, of course).

Martin Berkhan is a great example of this.
I like being slimmer and look better slimmer. Plus it's easier to dress and all that. Im only 5' 9", I would be happy to never be heavier than 185, maybe 190 max.

O yea, closed on the house today icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
