What's your tendency for weight gain?
Do you gain weight like a field mouse? ie none. Or like a Fat sloth-like couch potato? ie alot? Or somewhere in between?
Best thing to do would be to try it and see what works the best.
An excess of calories will lead to increase weight gain, short term, but will go a long way towards developing massive muscles mass.
It really depends on how easily you can gain and get rid of excess weight.
Don't be such a Nancy Boy. Adapt and change. You'll succeed.
