Shredded by Summer Day 1

Well, today marks the beginning of my mini bulk. Basically the goal is to take in 3700 calories per day and gain some muscle back since I haven't worked out in months. Muscle memory will serve me well hopefully. I've definitely let myself go over the past couple of months so now it's time to get serious again. Once I get some size back, I'm going to start my 2-3 month cut and be shredded by July. The plan right now is to hit 200lb then cut down to 185 at 8-9% bodyfat.

Please comment with any tips you may have that might make my bulking/cutting easier. Thanks :D

Starting Stats
Weight: 184lbs
Bodyfat: 14% (Caliper measured)
Abs: Upper 2 abs show, but there's still a little bit of stubborn fat over my lower abs.

Those stats are from a few months ago, USF Gym doesn't have the right tools for me to effectively measure myself, however, I can definitely tell that I've let myself go. My upper abs come and go and my arms are barely over 15.5" when they used to be 17" cold. So I've basically gotten smaller and fatter. This is more than enough motivation to get myself back into the gym and come back bigger, stronger, and leaner.

Lifts
Bench: 225x4
Squat: 275x3 ATG
Deadlift: 355 apprx. (I hardly ever do normal deadlifts. I almost always do romanian/straight legged DL's)

Supplements
ON Protein
ON Opti-Men multivitamins

  2. Same goals as you. I'm starting to think that I might just switch to lower carbs instead of keto, but also I've heard that people have actually gained muscle while doing the ckd (which im doing).
