i want to start bulking but i have a couple of questions.

if i were to gain alot of weight say 10kg+ would this be all fat and would i loose all the toned muscle i have now?

and would it take a long time to get cut again, and would me trying to make my self look cut make me loose weight and be bak where i started?

If you're working out, it won't ALL be fat. If you bulk properly, very little of it will be fat.

oh dude..

lol u get your definitions mixed up..
here are some BBing terms explained in laymans terms.

cutting: to loose bodyfat so that your muscles will show more

toned muscles: really no such thing, but just regular muscle that is showing b/c you have little body fat between the skin and muscle.

bulking: gaining more muscle (itll show more if u have more of it!!!)

ppl who BB tend to gain a bit of fat, not like a lot, mabye 5-6 lbs at the end of a bulking session. But theyll end up gainined mabye 7-10 lbs of muscle, on top of the 5-6 lbs of fat (even if that).

how long should a bulking session go for. and should i be working out as normal?

You do it for as long as you like. Personally, that is until my bodyfat gets too high.

What is a "normal" workout?

just like the normal split you did before you started bulking.

For me it's 1-1.5 month bulk, then 1 month cut. I'm getting ready to start cutting in 2 weeks. I can't wait, I've gained a little unwanted bodyfat, my fault.

For gaining a maximum amount of size, focus on compound lifts for your whole body. Your workout should be based on these: bench presses, pullups, rows, military press, squats, deadlifts.

yeah while you bulk though, just watch the fat, since even high intensity interval training (HIIT) doesnt burn that many calories.

Just make sure you dont giveyourself 2 many cheat days.

id bulk till i found i was getting a bit fat.

How did you start bulking and how did u start eating enough cals to put on weight? do you have shakes or do you just eat heaps?

Unless your calorie needs exceed 5000 you should be eating most of the calories.(unless you work alot or do work&school)
