Really not much of a difference in exercises. You'd want to keep those the same.
Bulking = building muscle (and gaining some fat) by eating more calories than maintenance and progressively increasing weight lifted the next time you do that exercise. One can supposedly add muscle faster by also letting the body add some fat, due to quirks in the body's endocrinology. This is likely true to a point.
Cutting = maintaining muscle and losing fat. Here, you eat at maintenance, or slightly less, so you will start to lose body weight (fat and muscle). You lift the same amount of weight you left off with, but since you're on less calories, you won't be able to build muscle. But you'll at least be able to maintain it, in theory.
Now some people recommend for a cut to drop the weight and increase the reps. With that, you're trading myofibrillar hypertrophy (80% of size and strength) for sarcoplasmic hypertrophy (only 20% of size and strength). So size and strength will drop.
There's a new school of thought out now about not doing either bulking or cutting, unless one really needs to gain muscle or lose fat (extremely skinny or obese). For example, if you're at your preferred body fat level, you find your maintenance calories, and eat just slightly above that while progressively increasing weights slowly the next time you do that same exercise. That way you pretty much maintain your body fat levels, while increasing your muscle mass. A slow, but "hopefully" sure process.
To lose weight you use a medium amount of resistance (weight) and do 3 – 4 sets of 12 repetitions. To bulk up you use a medium amount of weight, do 1 set of 12 reps, add 5-10 lbs. (depending on the exercise) and do 1 set of 12. And add another 5 – 10 lbs and do another set of 12. This works best once you have done basic exercises and developed some muscle tone first. Either way try to stay away from carbs and increase your protein intake (lean meat) and make sure you drink a lot of water before, during and after you work out. After a good workout let the muscle group rest for 72 hours (3 days) before working them again. Usually you work the upper body one day, the lower body the second day and rest the third. Then restart the cycle again.
yeah what brianna said....... But if u wanted to bulk up u could mabey try weight lifting, and if u want to lose weight than just eat the right portions and eat healthy of course. I'm not sure but I dont think that u can do both at the same time..... mabey try losing weight first than bulking up.
when you are trying to bulk up you would eat the same amount of food or more while excersizing and when you are trying to lose weight you would eat less but still enough to sustain your body
