What are your goals Danpiel? And you're definitely lower than 17% bf.

Unless you have a competition in the next year, get up to 250 before you even think about cutting.

Much easier said than done, and this may not be his goal.

Danpiel, how tall are you? I'd say your legs and back need work. You're doing alright as far as bf is concerned. Honestly if continuing to gain weight is possible for you right now then do it. Cutting is where people tend to f*** up, so be careful. I'm at a similar bf to you but a bit heavier, I plan to continue bulking for a few more months, then try eating at around maintenance for a few months before maybe doing a 4 week cut for the summer. You look naturally lean so I'd imagine losing fat shouldn't be much of an issue.

I was stating with how lean he is now, he can gain a lot before he wants to cut. How much is up to him, but he could get to 250 maintaining most of his leanness in 2-3 years, unless that is he wants to do a body building competition. I can't see why he would want to cut for any other purpose than that. I am VERY impressed with what the OP has done so far and see the potential for serious size if that is what he wants to do.

I see you brought up those legs. Why not cut and see where you are at? Then you can decide if you need to keep bulking after that

I have to agree with this or atleast around this. Plus it's the winter, no need for abs.

No you won't. You just need to methodically increase your calorie intake over a period of time. Training is about adaptation. So is eating. You have tremendous potential

Not at all. It is very easy to do natural.

Well, not necessarily easy, but very possible.

250 lb at 7% BF you might need juice, if you were to do it in 3 months.

250 is definitely possible my friend. do it to it.
