Im bulking but I can tell the weight is going elsewhere too, like around my stomach and stuff, any way to prevent this?..

I was thinking about taking a break from bulking and running for a while.

If you don't want to gain fat, then don't eat as much. That might result in slower muscle gains though. I guess the ratio of muscle to fat gains on a bulk is probably determined mainly by genetics.

Bottom line: if you feel you are gaining too much fat, then reduce your cals. However if reducing cals halts your muscle gains, then you may have to just live with the fact that you are going to gain some fat if you want to gain some muscle.

is your bulk a clean one? If its a dirty bulk, you're bound to get fat, but i've heard stories of people who gain LBM through a clean bulk without too much fat. Its not uncommon.

How long have you been bulking?

Shoot for 500cals over maint (~1lb/wk) and you should do pretty well. Adjust from there to gain slowly. Make sure your workouts are at least consistent and hard/heavy effort.

Control your diet better. Gaining too much fat? Ease back the calories and settle for gaining weight very slowly. That, or somehow magically obtain better genetics.

Your diet is more important than your "running for a few weeks". You're assuming that general cardio will just burn fat. It is a way to up your activity level and burn more calories, which does not necessarily mean fat stores. There are methods of cardio to free up and burn off bodyfat, but in the end, you would still need to be dieting to see any significant fat loss. If you're constantly bulking, then cutting after a short time, you may negate your gains. I would just get your diet dialed in perfectly and concentrate on gaining slowly.
