When bulking is it best to do a lean bulk and eat 200 calories over maintainence and slowly increase cals or put on muscle and fat in a dirty bulk then cut for a few months.
eagermuscle saidClean or dirty bulk; that's always a good question.
I'm still trying to figure out if I don't have what it takes to get BIG because I was fat, and don't want to be fat again, so I just completed my first bulk, a clean one, going at about 6' from 185 lbs to 200 lbs. That doesn't sound like a lot but while I'm going to look at lot different at 185 than the last time I was at that weight in my current profile picture wearing the Superman tank (same 32" waist but very noticeably bigger lats, traps, delts, quads and calves), I've been very uncomfortable during the bulk having my waist and butt balloon up. Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels, but I've yet to guess how lean big and JACKED feels to determine whether really fattening up with a dirtier bulk is worth it.
