    ideal fat percentage for mass bulking during ph cycles...


    during natty test and ph cycles whats your opinion on body fat% levels? whats the ideal % to effectively gain mass without the increased risk of additional body fat? now i understand fat gain will happen naturally based on diet but what are the odds of high test/hormone levels speeding up the process of fat storages. i ask because i will be running 8 weeks of ams's anabolic growth kit along with nocturnabol and am currently 15-16% at 184lbs..

    I guess 14%-15% bf is good While bulking... You can also keep a nice cardio cycle to keep your bf% constant or eve drop it while bulking... It is not necessary to GAIN fat while Bulking... Trust me, I have gained about 4-5%bf, now that I am bulking but I have (about some 2 weeks ago) strated to lose bf as well...

    during my ph bulks i try and drop cardio and utilize every cal i consume...im not against gaining fat just wondering if a higher body fat percentage and the introdutcion of estrogen (if any) is more likely to convert excess cals to fat storages...

    a little, but its pretty hard to get any sort of accurate "optimum" spot. i'd guess between 10-15% is pretty decent, much below that and your body will be more inclined to store fat. Much above that and moreso than anything else, gaining an extra 1-2lbs of fat isn't as visible as it is below that, so accurately shifting diet as you see fat accumulation is harder. I would lean towards anything under 18% probably not making such a huge difference in estrogen levels that its not critical from that aspect.

    it shouldn't have negative effects, just you'll have to watch closely at fat getting added, because 1% more isn't necessarily as obvious as it would be at 11%. Its just in terms of definition, etc that its harder to tell if you gain 2lbs in a week whether it was mostly fat or mostly muscle at higher bf levels

    Estrogen might cause you to retain water, which can lead to temporary weight gain. But I don't think it'll COnVeRT excess cals to fat thou.
