Cut or Bulk? The Skinny Fat Dilemma
To Cut Or Not To Cut. To Bulk Or Not To Bulk? That Is The Skinny Fat Question.
Like the Prince (or Princess) Hamlet of Fitness this is a question you’ve pondered for some time. Do you lose the excess body fat first, or dive straight into building muscle? Well it’s time to wonder no more. Here’s your complete guide to whether you should cut or bulk.
As with most questions, the answer to the cut or bulk conundrum starts with two important, yet equally annoying words. ‘It depends’… You see, there’s no definitive answer for everyone. It’s not like a one size fits all poncho from Universal Studios. There’s nuances and circumstances unique to you. Meaning what’s right for you, may be wildly different to the next person.
But that doesn’t really help, does it?
So when deciding whether to cut or bulk, you need some guidelines. A framework. Like the plans to the Death Star.
And I’m going to give you those plans. Trust me, after reading this article sculpting a badass body will feel easier than shooting Womp Rats in your T-16 back home.
Now, these guidelines aren’t just something I threw together in 5 minutes. This is the EXACT process I use with all my clients. And it’s how I determine if it’s first stop fat loss or all aboard the gain train (woo woo).
So wherever you are on your journey to building a lean, strong, healthy, sexy AF body, by the end of this article you’ll know whether it’s time to cut or bulk.
Think of me as your Leia. Thawing you from your cut or bulk carbonite-like paralysis.
