    I'm Starting A Clean Bulk In The Next Couple Weeks.....

    It will be my first real bulk. I am currently 170 pounds @ around 11-12% BF. I am gonna bulk until I'm at least 190, possibly 200. I will be eating clean but eating a lot. Also I will be using creatine for the first time.

    How much muscle mass should I expect to gain if I handle this bulk right? My arms are currently 14.5 inches. How much could I expect to gain and how terrible should I expect fat gain to be?

    That's a pretty tough question to answer.

    We all gain at different rates, so you'll have to experiment and see what works best for you. There is no way to estimate how fat you will get.

    My best guess is that if you are trying to limit your fat gain, it will take the better part of a year to put on 20 pounds of muscle. If you are willing to gain bodyweight faster (read: get fatter), then you can probably add more muscle faster, but then you'll have to diet to get rid of the bodyfat.

    A solid 20 pounds will take your arm to 15.5 to 16 inches or so.

    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Thanks man. I don't mind putting on some body fat but I don't want to get silly with it. I'm going to be eating very clean, but a lot. Somewhere around 3000-3200 calories everyday. I will probably cheat a little every week or two. But it won't be bad cheating. I'm gonna have to come back and get some more help with this since it's my first real bulk but I was curious as to what I could expect.

    Thanks

    Bulking should involve pizza, beer, and cheeseburgers!

    As long as you want it to. There is not set limit.
    Burritos are the bomb for bulking!
