I’ve been bulking for the last 3 months and wanted some 2nd opinions if I was gaining to much fat during it. I started off with the following #'s at 6 ft tall: (bf measure by omron impedance based device)
190 lbs 14%bf
210 lbs 18%bf
I lost some definition and haven’t been eating as clean as I could’ve. I couldn’t get past 195lbs when I was eating super clean. So I made it my goal to get 4000 calories and 300 grams of protein. Some of the non-clean foods during this period were Wendy’s double stacks, chocolate milk, white bread, chicken or meatball parm sandwiches and pizza.
My goal is to get to 230lbs before cutting and hopefully be a solid 205-210 lbs when I’m done. I’ve gotten some comments from people I haven’t seen in a while that I’m bigger, but they only see me with the shirt on or tank top. They don’t see the extra flab I put on my belly. You can’t really tell the size difference from the pictures below, but the measurements above show this.
What I’d like to know is if I should clean up the diet based on the pictures below or continue gaining with the “dirty bulk”. Another important thing is to mention I didn’t do any cardio. This is because I had a hard enough time gaining weight without it.
at 6ft 190lbs
after bulk 210 lbs
