    I was considering doing a short 8 week cut in about a month just to get rid of some small fat gain that ive had while bulking. Is it worth cutting for only 8 weeks or should i bulk for longer then do a longer cut?

    probably the first week or two. fat would begin to come off earlier than a month into it

    depends why you want to cut, if its just to lose some fat go for it. Why not do a long cut? If its just for summer go ahead I would say. then start bulking late summer like july/aug?

    whatever happens to his body is based on what he puts into it :dunno:

    you can gain just LBM if you eat and work out correctly but it takes longer for most people.
