    you can go 2lbs but you will need a 1000 calorie surplus everyday and could lead to fat gain vs muscle gain, you can bulk for however long you want, nobody can tell you when to stop but if you start gaining excess fat the drop your calories down or decide if its time to cut

    I already have exsessive fat. Should I just keep bulking at 1lb-1.5lb till 180 and then cut to 170-175? Oh and IF or just regualar meals

    Aim for 2-2.5 lbs a month IMO. IF protocol is what I follow, increase cals slowly, bulk until you are happy. Don't let someone tell you how to tune your body, we all do this because we love what we do, we love to mold and shape our bodys and watch it change. Train for your goals, research how to diet and train correctly, you're young so it would be great to start now.

    You can only really gain 2 lbs of LBM a month, maybe a little more if you are new to lifting, and even less if you are experienced. Take it slow and good luck.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Totally agreed.
    There's good weight and bad weight....

    w/o "help" (anabolics) people won't "blow up", so though your statements sounds accurate.

    Yeah, anabolics as well all know will speed up the process. He is 16 though, so please don't get any ideas! Lol

    Here is a rationality check - don't ever bulk!

    You are 16. Keep eating right and do not gain fat. Puberty is going to kick in hard real soon. Don't blow it by getting over fattened thinking you are "bulking up".

    Id agree with 1lb or less p/week. Even less would be recommended. Scale weight doesnt reflect body compostition, so dont get fat thinking your getting swole.

    100% agree. Eat clean, lift, sleep, and let it happen. I made the biggest gains from 16-20. It just took patience and consistency.

    At 16 you're probably still in highschool, are you on amy teams? I am a junior in college and have been lifting seriously since I was a sophmore. So I remember how hard it can be to follow a diet, and schedule it in. The first thing I would recommend is shoot for 1lb lean gain a week. Don't get sloppy eating whatever you want, keep it clean and at around 3800 calories, or if youre on a sports team 4500.
    The diet I used and put on decent size was similar to the one Ill lay out. I know it'll be tough to do, but here was my diet off season, and bare in mind I lived alone during my junior and senior years of highschool and cooked all my meals (and you may have to too):
    8:45 five eggs (three whole two white)
    11:00 two pbjs on whole wheat (prepacked)
    1:05 whatever the cafeteria is serving
    2:35 Two turkey sandwiches pre packed.
    5:00 Leftovers from night before
    7:00 Dinner for that night.
    I would go to bed at ten usually.
    PWO whey protein and recon by muscle pharm
    Tips:
    I have always been a heavy eater, but have found out it's easier to eat this way and stay a little hungry after each meal so that by the next one I'm starving.
    DRINK WATER! I mean a gallon a day is what your minimum should be. I mean don't over hydrate just carry a nalgene with you to class and use the water fountains to fill it.
