Need help with my goals
Now I need to accelerate my results. I started diet 2 weeks ago and I was about 181 pounds, I'm now at 176.5. I weigh myself in the morning after I wake up and go to the bathroom. I want to be at 155 by the end of Januiary because I want to be able to bulk and cut again in time for this summer.
So I want to know what is the best way to go about this cut, bulk, cut cycle with my goal of looking ripped by summer?
Here I am:
Lifting weights M/W/F
Daily calories 1720
P/C/F ratio 40/40/20
Goal: establish a base for a bodybuilding body, be done cutting, bulking and cutting by summer.

No B.S. approach
If you bulk by today's means of bulking your just going to get fatter more so than bigger. Modify your diet so that your maintaining body weight and just train your butt off for the winter. Its not so much how you way but how you look anyhow. If you want to gain some weight don't gain more than 5lbs at a time. However you much better off taking the time to put some serious training in.
Without and even with the use of anabolic steroids it takes years of hard work and training to become a bodybuilder, and to build such an remarkable physique.Bodybuilding is a life style.
The easiest way to do that is focus one month on gaining weight and lifting heavier for mass and size, then the next month losing that weight focusing on conditioning, cardio and strength endurance. That way you gained some muscle, and some fat, then lost that fat. Another thing is don't really reduce your calories as much as change the foods you get your calories from.
If you need to consume 2500 calories a day, when "cutting" make sure it is from lean meats such as chicken, fish and good carbs such as quinoa, oatmeal, yams and when "bulking" instead eat steak, pork, baked potatoes, rice,pasta etc...
I only suggest bulking for strength athletes who need more size to handle heavier poundages, grow bigger stronger tendons and consume more calories to keep up with high intensity training that is demanding on the central nervous system.
I suggest cutting when that same person gets too large to the point it is effecting their lifting and overall lifestyle to which they should focus on speed and endurance strength until they reached target range of weight and general physical preparedness.

Great advice given here....
I agree that you dont need to 'bulk and cut' You can get gains in muscle and reduce some fat at the same time, providing your diet is spot on. I love the idea of doing a month strength/edurance/fitness then a month of trying to grow. Excellent advice
