    im just curious how long people stay on a bulking diet.
    do you set a time limit, weight goal/limit or something else.

    When you start getting beyond your safe feeling, and start feeling to fat. For me this is generally around 12-15%ish, at that time I think I might have gained lots of muscle, but really I’m lying at myself and most of its fat.

    So, I turn around and race off the other way, until I get below 10% and feel better. DA

    I went from 1996 to 2002 without cutting but I didn’t get fat either so it might not count.

    I think it depends how hard you want to bulk. If you are getting fat then you need to stop at some point otherwise just soldier on.

    wow bull your diet must have been spot on to do it for that long.

    Different strokes for different folks! Ecto’ types prefer to feel thinner. DA

    Why is it us ‘ectos’ get the nerdyest sounding body type? ‘Endos’ and ‘mesos’ sound so much cooler……….Why cant we be ‘gnarlyomophs’ or ‘badassomorphs’???? I guess it’s something only an ectomorph would get pent up about!

    Dorian Yates was one, he just got pent up enough to change himself. So nows the time- Go Like Bloody Hell- at the weights. DA

    I’m giving it all she’s got captain!!
    I tell you who is one pent up dude – Dorians training partner in his blood and guts video…..yikes. Sorry I’ve taken this a bit off topic πŸ˜€

    May be thats the missing element.

    We just need someone screamin at us.

    If Flex Wheeler, Frank Zane and Larry Scott can overcome skinnyitis then so can we.

    Ecto no mo!

    July 13, 2006 at 9:28 am #2789

    My old lady screams at me all the time! Just seems to make me skinnier!! In all seriousness though I think you are right Dr J, having a training partner pushing you makes a huge difference.

    Flex was an ecto? Wonder if guys used to kick sand in his face and call him ‘Flecto’?

    July 14, 2006 at 5:41 am #2790

    i think im more of an endo. but is it possible for peoples body type to change. when i was still in primary school im sure i was an ecto. is it possible to change as you get older?

    Quite the opposite mate. My only diet knowledge was eat heaps of meat and not much junk. I’m not naturally a huge eater and I don’t like getting fat so I just floated along.

    Almost everything that I know about diet (which is not a lot) I have learned here and other forums over the last few years.

    The mirror is the only tool that you need when it comes to bodyfat.
