    I have very little muscle mass.

    I'm about 5'10, 19 years old, 157-160 lbs. I have very little muscle mass. I just started lifting using a slightly modified version of WBB #1. Needless to say, I kinda suck and I hope to make some big n00b gains.

    Now, my question is, is it better for me to first increase my muscle mass while maintaining my current weight (so as to reach a healthy level) and THEN consider bulking? Or should I just start bulking right away?

    Bulking IS gaining muscle mass by and large.

    However, if you're a complete beginner, you may be able to get away with just doing WBB1 and still see decent gains.

    We are about the same, I'm also around 157-160 lbs maybe 165 lbs, I'm trying to bulk up to because I have very little muscle mass but decent, but decent is not good enough for me, I want to get huge so the members feedback to this topic could really help me out a lot too because I was thinking about making a topic similar to this one a while back.

    It's as simple as asking yourself 'am I happy with my body fat level'. If you are then bulk and cut down later. If you're not then you might want to cut first. It's all up to you.

    If you want to gain muscle you need to gain weight.

    If you want to gain muscle strength, you dont need to gain weight. But thats if you jus wanted to be rele strong and not just rele big hehe.
