Cut or Bulk?

Currently I weigh 177lbs with about 10-11% bf. I can’t decide whether if I should keep on bulking or cut a little first.

My long term goals are:
weight- 220
body fat- 8%

Suggestions?

how tall are you? Scratch that, just bulk up man. You think you’re going to reach those goals by cutting weight??

I’d keep bulking until you are 12-14%. Then cut back. Berardi recommends cutting fat before bulking if you’re over 12%.
