    @watts6151good luck! How long did you bulk for and how much did you gain?

    Just over 4 months, including glycogen and water up 12-13 lb, I expect t drop a few pounds of water when I drop to maintenance. I think/hope I’ve made improvements to my weak points, will be very happy with 1lb of muscle

    @psuLemon you must be close to being able to bulk now? Unless that isn't something you are interested in doing. I am still a bit hesitant, gaining is difficult no matter how many times you've done it :s

    I am getting leaner. I just need to get rid of the lower belly and then i would like to lean bulk. My weight is trending appropriately to hit my goal by Halloween (163). And then ill have a goal is 159 by Thanksgiving. I suspect i need to be around 155 to be lean enough to get rid of my belly bump lol. My ultimate goal is 170 and lean.

    Ok so operation bulk is not going as planned, it is looking more like operation maintenance for now. I am trying but because I've increased my lunches I don't get hungry when I have to eat my next snack. Or maybe it's because I am moving more like a jumping bean. Whatever it is, this is normal for me so I just have to be more mindful of eating.

    I have been there. Bulking for a minute and then maintenance the next. Stay strong

    Appears I’m in the same boat. My weight trend leveled off around 174.5 and has since dipped under 174 over the last two weeks while consistently averaging above what I’ve always observed as TDEE.

    I duno I keep rethinking this bulk. I don't mind the gaining weight part, it's fun, I love it, but I'm so frustrated with my confusion over my goals. I feel like I don't even know what I want anymore and I change my mind everyday.

    I have a feeling this bulk might be a bit of a mess but for me it's better than staying the same.

    Geez @sal10851 are you posting this in every thread in the gaining forum? What are you trying to achieve here? Have you seen some of the physiques of the people around here who have successfully run bulks?

    Old news. He literally says he was convicted on most of his videos. Does not change the information or the knowledge he has.

    Yup.

    Are you a bodybuilder? Do you have experience doing any of the things Greg speaks about? I am just genuinely curious because there is no one size fits all for everyone, different things work for different people.

    That's exactly the point of the video. If you pay attention to the information provided and not jump to conclusions about the person providing it you will see that you can achieve your goals either way. I just want people to understand the dangers of bulking to an unhealthy weight and then cutting back which leads to eating disorders.

    As I mentioned in the other thread, do you think I could have reached my goals starting at almost underweight to get to 135lbs without bulking/gaining weight? I'm not saying recomp doesn't have a place but for certain people bulking is a very helpful and sometimes necessary way of gaining muscle.

    And am I supposed to listen to a non-natural bodybuilder, who has clearly run many bulks over his life, telling me to recomp and not bulk. Ha. I'm confused is all.

    Anyways this is a thread I started to gather people who are bulking. If you want to debate bulking there is a debate section for that

    Thanks.
