    I've seen posts in the past about how the longer you maintain a weight the harder it is to deviate from that weight. So would it be better to keep bulking for another month or maintain. I figure that some of the LBM I gain in the next month will be more easily lost than what I have right now but I'm just looking to have the most LBM at the end of the cut :hs:

    iirc, you should maintain a little before starting a bulk or cut

    If I take your 80" wingspan into consideration...keep bulking.

    I'm going to cut, that's not the question, it's what to do in the meantime before starting to cut that I'm wondering about.

    You saw the hip flexor pic I posted... visible veins and very visible hip bones. I'm fatter than I'd like to be but nothing to freak out about.

    Good point, it's hard to fill out the arms with such an epic wingspan.

    I've always gotten hot pretty easy though, I'm still wearing tshirts and it's Washington :rofl:

    I'm moving back to CA in March where it will be much warmer. I've always been relatively lean my whole life and now I probably have more bodyfat on me than any time in the past. That and I store almost all of my bodyfat on my stomach so it makes me look fatter than I am :o

    I've never really had specific goals until the last 2-3 months so I'm not sure how this would be accomplished :o

    I'm not even sure exactly how I'm going to do my cut besides just tracking what I eat and making sure it's below maintenance and continuing with weights. Caloric deficit > cardio :o
