I've read somewhere about a study that shows the lower your bodyfat is before you bulk, the more favorable the muscle:fat gain ratio becomes. I can't recall where, but just take it for what it is worth.

Yeah It depends on how lean you want to get.

I think I remember reading that too... In any case, the lower the bf%, the more you'll see your gains week-to-week, regardless if that study is true or not. Being really lean is a perfect way to start a bulk.

This article says to cut if you already have a good bit of BF. http://www.t-mag.com/articles/199ess.html
