      So here's my situation.
      I've been lifting for a while and I'm not sure if I should cut or bulk ( the classic )
      My stats :
      Bench ; 240
      Squat : 260
      DL : 345
      5'11
      217 lbs


      I really love working on getting my lifts up and getting bigger ( used to be a football player so Bf didn't matter much to me.
      Although, I'm starting to dislike the fat I have around my waist.
      But before trying to cut, I'd like to know if it would be worth it. I don't want to cut to 15%-10% ish bf and look skinny.
      I know alot about nutrition and I'm always spot on with my diets so cutting would not be a problem with me.
      I think that cutting to 10%-15% bf would be good because I could bulk easier after.
      But like I said, I'm afraid that I dont have enough mass. ( My arms mesurements ; 15' :/ )

      So please help me decide what to do.
      I really need advices on what to do.

      ** Pics were taken after a big supper full of carbs so I look bigger ( belly ) than I normaly am.

      Cut, you're looking too soft to be bulking.

      Normally id say cut at your size, but if you cut now youre gonna be lean and wanna bulk right before summer and screw everything up.
      Bulk for winter, keep up the work lookin big man

      Thanks, I appreciate it. Quality of pics is bad imo.
      I don't want abs for summer, if I'm close to 15% I'd be fine with it.
      I would probably bulk through summer, would have no problem with that ( if I get rid of my belly ).
      Do you guys think I have enough LBM to have great results from cutting ?

      Close call, you're looking pretty thick on the fat content.

      Regardless, do it anyways, you need to cut.

      Edit: Don't take that the wrong way, you have more LBM than the average person I'd say but you're probably overestimating how much you have.

      In fact, I don't want to bulk and get more fat. Don't want to have a longer " clean up " job to do.
      Would probably have to do a quick cut before bulking again.

      Thanks for taking time to answer.

      If you dont care about getting lean for summer id say bulk until you have the amount of lbm you want. Maybe slow the bulk down a little bit if its gonna be a long one. Id say maybe do a short cut now just so you dont get stuck cutting forever in the future

      I'd say you need to cut to 170-180 to get lean(not a quick cut).

      Why you're telling this guy to bulk when he's 20+% BF blows my mind. Seasonal or not.

      He's cutting now so he can bulk longer later. Either approach will net the same result however if he follows your advice he'd be a fat fuk in no time and left with 50 pounds to lose.

      Edit: If I was OP I'd cut to concentration camp status and do a small surplus lean bulk to infinity and beyond.
