I had been extremely apprehensive about gaining more weight since I had lost a ton, but I finally did and sure enough two weeks into it I go up about 10 lbs on my bench press where I had been stalled for months. Is there a certain amount of time this works best for or should I just go for the most acceptable strength level/body shape I can all at once? I mean, I guess there's going to be a point where it equalizes no matter what I do when muscle mass grows and I'd have to eat more, but is there any benefit to the bulk/cut process other than looking good?...
