I have been bulking up for 2 months and gained 15 pounds from 185 to 200.I am 6'4. How much longer do you think I should bulk?

until you can't stand looking at yourself in the mirror....There is no set limit, each person is completely different and are more self conscious than others. My first bulked way back sucked, cut way down and now I don't bulk higher than 14% or so, or until I feel gross. It also depends if you want to look good or be "big"


EDIT: I also don't bulk with **** food and 10 thousand calories a day. 300 above maintenance is where I feel comfortable. Can put on size, limiting fat

This is my first time bulking. I am eating a little over 3,000 calories. My stomach is getting big and my pants are feeling tight. Is this a sign for me to cut back. How many calories should I eat during my cut?

This ^^^

Do whatever the heck you feel like doing. We don't know your maintenance calorie level, but 3,000 calories ain't that much compared to what a lot of people do. If you still want to eat like that, do some cardio, play basketball on the weekends- just get more active. You can continue to suck down the protein and fuel your body with good calories and not get fat.

You are on the powerlifting section... you can't powerlift without getting big.

Nobody can tell you when to stop bulking, it's a personal preference.

Until you look in the mirror and aren't happy with your body fat level.

At 6'4" until you reach 300lbs
