Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
First and foremost, you need to map out what your caloric/protein/fat/carbohydrate goals are if you want to bulk the right way. Research different types of diets and find something that you know would work for you. It is a marathon, not a sprint. Very few people can get by on eating whatever they want, however much they want and coast in the gym to achieve awesome results. From the sound of it, you went on something called a "Dreamer Bulk" or a flat out dirty bulk where you ate straight shit the majority of the time and didn't train right to boot. I would definitely start a proper cut to lose the fat, research proper bulking procedures, find out what your nutritional goals are, and then start over. Bulk clean next time and cutting will be a breeze.
A 3 day lifting split is fine if those 3 days are legitimate balls to the wall, drenched in sweat type of training. Fitness is just like everything else in life - you get what you work for.
