    Hi,

    I’m just getting in touch and asking for some advice now after I’ve been on a bulk now for almost 6 months. Ive gone from 62KG to now 71kg and I started the Terrance and Joe program in November and carried on and on and keep on track consistency through the weeks and tweaking my food as I go along as I’m weighing myself daily (which I’ve done for the last 6 months) I like to manage that, as well as my food intake where I’m having 5-6 meals a day and have been slowly increasing Cals as the weeks have gone by. Been going gym 5 times a week after work (I work 10-12hrs a day) and have been aiming for a step count of 10k steps a day which I hit everyday. This is pretty much my first bulk and my goal is to get to about 75-maybe 80kg at a push. My macros Cals at the moment are P285 C4-450 F70g
    What do I do training wise when I decide to reduce Cals? I don’t have time to go gym twice for instance do cardio in the AM and weights in the PM like most do. I don’t want to lose a lot of muscle when I decide to cut, do I carry on following the program and still do as much as possible? Or drop the volume etc and do more reps? I’m not gonna like dropping my food because I love my meals so much as well haha. But I suppose we have to go out of our comfort zone to reach our goals, I just want the best strategy for the best results as possible. Any guidance will be helpful. Thank you.

    Thank you Bryce. Brilliant advice and I will take that on board mate. Like I said this is my first proper re-comp (or bulk since losing a lot of weight and surgery etc) so building muscle was my main goal like I said I’ve gone from 62KG to now 72kg within 5 month and I’m gonna push it to 75kg I think before I start to have a cut phase, I just didn’t know how to strategised it all as before hand I implemented a lot of cardio/running and mixed it all together and I lost a lot of muscle and since then I’ve massively improved my in all aspects like training/food in-take as I wasn’t eating enough, and I’m keeping tabs on my stress/sleep/general activity, and recovery. I just didn’t want to ruin any progress and lose the muscle I’ve gained, I want to do it the right way and once I’ve had a little tidy up, I want to go again and build more and keep at it. Hungry for the gains as they say but want to keep that BF in check 😂👍🏽, again thank you for the response and big respect 👌🏽
