I’ve been bulking for about 15 weeks using Waterbury’s Huge in a Hurry program (the Get Big phase). I’ve gained almost 30 lbs on this bulk (I’m around 245 lbs now) and was not “lean” when I started the bulk.
I’m not sure how much of the weight gain is fat, but it could be a large portion of it. I’m fine with that as long as it comes off in my cut which starts in about two weeks.
Which leads to my question: Should I go immediately from a bulk (when I consumed about 17 cals/lb) to a severe diet such as the V-Diet or should I just follow Waterbury’s Get Lean phase (3 whole body workouts per week + three HIIT per week) and slowly reduce calories as needed to maintain consistent weight loss? If I follow the second path, I would probably need to resort to the V-diet after 2-3 mos in order to continue to drop fat.
What do you guys recommend?
