Im currently about 178lbs, 5'9". been lifting for about 2 and a half years doing mostly fitness and gpp type routines. i decided to shift gears about a month or so ago and start focusing on bulking and building. whats a good bodyweight/time goal to set for myself? thanks guys
I say just bulk until you're no longer happy with your bodyfat percentage and then cut.
I can remember being 72kg (159lb) and thinking I'd be happy if I could ever get to 87kg (192lb). I'm now 101kg (223lb)and dont think I will cut until I get to atleast 108kg (238lb).
As for a timeline, a slower, more careful bulk is the way to go in my opinion. 2-3 lbs a month would be good progress.

6'2 - 105kg (231lb)
It is possible to gain more if you are simply looking for overall size and are willing to compromise a bit with regard to body composition.
