The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Bulking w/o losing or gaining fat.

    In the last few months I have been gaining a little bodyfat while bulking, but recently I have stopped gaining fat. I'm assuming this is because my extra new muscle has raised my daily calorie maintenance level so that I am neither gaining or losing fat. My question is, should I look to increase my calorie intake so that I continue to gain a little bodyfat as I was before? I'm worried that by not gaining a little bodyfat, my muscle gains might be restricted.
    Or does it not matter to muscle gains?
    Thanks.

    I would use your bodyweight as a guide - if it is increasing, your fine. If it is stalling, then add 100-200 calories a day. I wouldn't complain if you weren't gaining fat while bulking
