For seasoned gym rats, knowing when to cut or bulk is pretty well understood, but for newbies, knowing when it’s time to start a cut can be a bit challenging, if not downright confusing, especially when you’re living the perma-bulk lifestyle.
Here are 4 tell tale signs it’s that time to start a cut:
#1 Your Cardio Is Noticeably Worse
We can talk about losing abs or surpassing a certain body fat percentage, but one of the biggest telltale signs that it’s time to end the bulk and start a cut is if your cardio is worsening, or if cardio training is nonexistent in your program. It’s time to start leaning down if you’re afraid of the treadmill or worse, get winded walking up a flight of stairs.
#2 Your Form Is Starting To Get Effected
On the quest to grow, you’re going to put on weight (both muscle and fat). This is completely natural, and necessary, if you really want to make some impressive gains.
But, over gaining can be most noticeable in loss of range of motion. If you’ve gained so much weight that you can’t perform a deep back squat with good form. Then, it’s time to start a cut.
#3 Muscle Pumps Just Aren’t What They Used To Be
One of the less intuitive signs that you've gone overboard with your bulk is if you’re noticing that your pumps just aren’t as full as they used to be. This could be a sign of mild insulin resistance affecting nitric oxide production. This happens when caloric intake is far over what is needed for muscle recovery and growth. If the pump has faded, its time to cut back the calories.
#4 The Thought of Eating Food Makes You Queasy
Building muscle requires crushing your workouts as well as crushing some serious calories. But there comes a time when even the most arduous gym rats can't bear to stomach another plate of food for the sake of #gainz.
If you’ve been bulking for some time and just flat out tired of always cramming food down and feeling bloated, then it’s time to start a cut.
