Hi, i was wondering what you guys think will be more beneficial for me when I’m bulking. I am currently 15 years old, 6’2, and I weight 160 pounds (73 kg), I really don’t have a lot of strength or not much muscle because I’m skinny fat, hence why i weight 160 pounds at 6’2 and that I’m not all that strong.
My question was which bulk option should i do, and which one would help me the most overall (short term+long term)
Plan A- Go on a regular bulk (clean), raise 500 calories over maintenance and go on a good routine like Starting Strength or do a 3 day split (I might have to do a split because i have been prescribed accutane and from what Ive heard, people get bad joint pain from lifting heavy weights, its one of the common side effects, so i might not be able to do starting strength because of the demanding weight and compound movements) also add in cardio for minimizing fat gain
Plan B- Go on a SLOW CLEAN bulk to minimize fat gains even more, like raise only about 300 calories but still gain about 2 pounds a muscle a month, i was aiming for this one because I would put on the same amount of muscle with less fat, this one i think would help me out more because I’m skinny fat and i want to gain little fat. I would be looking to gain about 2 pounds a month, about a pound every two weeks?
remember, I’m skinny fat
if i choose a plan B how many calories over maintenance would be considered slow enough to gain muscle with little fat? and would adding cardio be necessary?
