    I'm trying to bulk up a little bit in prep for summer to look a little more muscular. Already being a little defined I don't want to put on weight in order to bulk up only to loose my current definition beneath a layer of fat. How is this avoided? Everywhere you read it says that in order to have a 6 pack there can't be any fat on the stomach otherwise the muscles beneath aren't visible, giving the six pack look.

    Hence, how can I bulk up yet retain muscle definition? I just need a little more fullness in my arms, chest and legs perhaps...

    Well you need to eat a little more protein and work out more. How much to you weight train?

    What's your current lifting plan?

    Some degree of definition loss is prettymuch inevitable if you want to get bigger. If you do a reeeeeal slow clean bulk (eat just a bit over your maintenance + exertion) you could keep it low.

    I'm doing the same thing. Going to HI at the beginning of May. I've started the bulking process and taking a mass gainer. I'm still eating right and hitting the gym 6x a week. By April, I'm thinking of kicking it up a notch and doing more cardio, get off from the mass gainer, and lean out. Good Luck!
