Oh yeah...I gained fat lol. There are pictures in my RMP thread. I'm not saying my results are typical or anything, in fact every other bulk I've done I gained about 10 lbs. of muscle, and 10 lbs. of fat. This one I just went balls to the wall.
I'm never worried about fat gain EVER when bulking. I find cutting easy, and like Orban said, I have more metabolically active tissue, and since the goal is to have as much muscle as possible at the end of the cut, I'd rather start that cut with a ton more muscle on me, even if it means having more fat. Between March 1 and June 1 I went from 231 to about 211...then the bruins went on their playoff run and I drank way too much beer and only lost 3 lbs. the next 3 weeks lol. But still...the point stands.
