Bulk Cycle Reveal – Winter 2017
Every Winter I reverse diet and taper my calories back up to maintenance (at least) and then decide whether I want to embark on a mass gaining phase or not.
Honestly, if I could have it my way, I would just eat forever in a deficit and stay shredded.
The only issue with that is eventually your Leptin and Ghrelin levels get thrown so out of whack from being in a constant calorie deficiency that cravings and overall energy levels eventually reach an unfavorable point and can no longer be dealt with.
This is why staying very shredded year round is not sustainable.
So, what I do to mitigate this is I have a phase where I eat at maintenance or slightly above maintenance to recalibrate my body to a “normal” amount of food, and to increase my metabolism to prepare my body for the next cut that will start during Spring.
Last year I did a real full blown “bulk” phase and gained a ridiculous amount of weight (60 pounds).
I do not plan on gaining that much weight this time.
At most, I will be shooting for 15-20 pounds of total weight gain over the span of about 12-16 weeks.
At least that is the plan for now; we will see what happens though. Plans can change quickly after all.
If even 4-5 pounds of that 15-20 pounds equates to permanent lean muscle mass after I cut back down and strip the fat and water weight off, I will be extremely satisfied.
I have been training for over 8 years now, so a 4-5 pound muscle gain would be a massive success.
It doesn’t sound like a lot, but 5 pounds of real lean tissue is quite noticeable on the physique.
This is the outline of what I am planning on running right now for my cycle:
Week 1-16: TRT Base
Week 1-16: MK-677 30mg per day
Week 1-16: IGF-1 LR3 4 weeks on 4 weeks off 40mcg shot bi-laterally
Week 1-6: S23 30mg
Week 8-16: LGD-4033 15mg
Week 8-16: RAD140 30 mg
Right now my priorities are more aligned with my work and other aspects of my life, so if I can’t stick to this for the full 16 weeks I won’t be too disappointed, but as of now this is the plan I hope to be able to stick with should nothing interfere with my being able to adhere to it.
I will be updating this log every few weeks monitoring my progress for those who want to follow along.
This is day 1.
