I bet 40-50% is diet mode with the rest maintenance.
Does anyone let it all hang out and bulk big time anymore? Who are not genetically gifted or on drugs?
My last time with a big bulk was a couple of years ago. Iím on TRT at around 200mg of test a week and had been for about 2 years before that. I wanted to do a beginner cycle of 500-600mg for about 12 weeks. The brotastic roid boards said I could put on 2+ lbs of muscle a week. So I went all out. I let BF creep up to 20%. Gained a lot of water weight with it and maybe only added .5 of muscle per week at that late intermediate to advanced level. After dieting the BF off I ended up with about 3 extra lbs of muscle. So even with drugs a huge bulk wound up being a bad idea.
