A 6 pack on a starving guy weighing 100lbs is not cool other than in concentration camp and we dont want that, do we?
You need to eat to build muscle, and you need to eat alot more than you think. The "added weight" you spot in the mirror is probably just waterbloat and a full stomac from just eating. Its mostly a mental "feeling" of fatness youre experiencing - ignore it.
Eat, lift and dominate. Dont bother about cutting or bulking, focus on getting stronger and work your ass off, not missing a single day of lifting. On vacation? You have a lil brother or a dog or something? Press him overhead for reps whenever youre away from the barbell!
Dont worry about calories, macros or supplements! Just enjoy training and bust your ass.
Sound advice, thanks.
Its just that I want to see good results this year, and I feel as because you cant even see my abs already, How will I ever see them if I dont cut?
I thought the only way to do it was cut then bulk.
