I've been bulking. However, I'm not not quite sure how fast I should be gaining weight. Is there a rule of thumb for this? Is gaining too fast otr too slow considered bad?

I'm also curious, when bulking, should there should be a limit to the either the amount of time spent bulking or the amount of weight gained during the bulking period?

Thanks.

I've read on this board and various other ones that 1 lb per week is good.

keep bulking until you are not happy with the amount of fat you have then cut.

Or set a goal weight and date.

I was also curious about this. I wanted to get to 210 before I began my cut. I am 6 ft exactly and 20 years old and currently weigh in at around 183 lbs...

What do you think? I usually put on about 1 to 2 lbs a week.

Go for it. Unless you start feeling too fat, don't stop. There are no rules set in stone. Find out what works for you.

I am actually doing the exact same thing. I'm 19, 6'1'', and I started at approx. 180 (currently 195) and am bulking until 210 (hopefully by Christmas).

i reckon your goal should be to put on more LBM than fat. i'm currently doing a slow bulk to get from 121 to 132lb. no time limit for me but i hope i can get there by october. but once i reach 25% BF, i'll start cutting regardless.
