So I had my BF taken recently and I am about 11% 145LBM 5'11" 165lbs.

My question is this, I have planned to bulk to around 180lbs and cut to 10%BF, so will my BF go up as I am bulking? But will I be getting fat?

Yes. you will gain muscle and fat when you are bulking. Try to include some cardio and watch those extra calories to avoid excess fat.

Depending on how much you are over maintanance on your bulk will depepnd on how quickly you gain weight and how much the muscle to fat ratio is.

for example if you are say 300-500 cals over maintanance you will gain muscle with less fat but it will take a loon time time to gain X amount of muscle

if you are 500-1000 cals over maintanance you will gain X amount of muscle quicker but with more fat gains.

Some people prefer to do the first option and slow bulk for a long time while others choose the second option and cut afterwards then repeat.
