So i started my bulk on april 17th. I weighed 164 pounds at the time. I didnt get measured but I believe I was about 15% bodyfat, maybe even more Im not sure.
Today I weigh 173 pounds and i got measured at 16.7% bf. Am i putting on too much fat?
My diet has been carb cycling. 147g fat,250g protein, 308g carb on lifting days. 147g fat, 250 g protein, 250 g carb on HIIT days. 147g fat, 250g protein, 185g carb on rest days. Well thats my estimate of rest days, I seemed to always be hitting the buffets on my rest day.
Should i continue the bulk? I am lifting heavier weights every week and my chest and arms look bigger.
How hard will it be for me to get to 10-12% bf?
Btw Im 5'10 and 26 years old.
9 lbs gain in a month will put on some fat for sure, assuming you're natural.
The problem is that you didn't measure your bf% before you started the bulk, so you may have not gained as much fat as you might think.
If you are lifting heavier weights and starting to look bigger, then I'd say keep bulking.
Getting down to 10-12% can be achieved in 3-4 mos, depending on your metabolism and diet/training.

keep bulking until you're at your desired weight. Then worry about a cut.
