I'm not a big fan of splitting your cycle up like this. Do you really think that you can get in teh shape you want to be in, with only 6 wks to grow, then 6 wls to cut. Look at this from a nautral perspective. Do you think that you could cut in 6 wks? Of course not.So my suggestion would be to pick a direction and go with it. If you feel you need to get bigger, splend this ccycle fofucisng on more food. If you want to make this one a cut, ok, that works too. I just find that too often, I see guys that have tried to do this and end up pretty close to where they started.
