Starting Cycle soon, bulk or cut before?

I hope this is in the right board. I'm going to be starting a P-Mag cycle soon and looking to bulk up as much as possible whilst on it. When entering into the cycle, is it best to go in 'lean' after a cut (ie begin the cycle at the start of a bulk) or just continue from a bulk in progress? My bodyfat is 16%, and if I was to cut I would look to do so fairly soon so I can bulk again in a few months, or begin the cycle soon and cut over the Summer. Thanks in advance.

    If you think you have bf to lose then do so before the cycle - a cycle is a waste imo if not trying to add size and strength and if you are not happy with the quality of your size now then this is likely to also be the case after a cycle and you will probably start cutting not too long after potentially losing strength you gained.

    Like jw said. Try to lose some body fat before you are doing your cycle!

    Thanks for all your replies. How low do you think is good to go to on the bodyfat % stakes? Another question around this subject, once cut down and going into the cycle, is it best to do a traditional 'bulk' (eat what you like within reason, just get those calories in, then cut after) or would I still see decent mass gains by doing a lean bulk, plenty of clean calories, thus avoiding having to do a 'cut' later on? I don't want to waste the cycle by not going to excess on the diet. Hope that makes sense, it sort of does in my head!

    i would just see whats possible with minimal risk of muscle loss. the way i see it is that when you bulk on a cycle no matter how lean you try to do it you will gain fat and at around 16% its a good time to reign it in, you also don't want to be risking your new gains trying to lose fat post cycle . as far as how you should bulk its up to you , you should know best how your body responds .
