    What you re really asking is how to bulk while maintaining a realatively low body fat. As long as you don't eat too much above the muscle growth threshold, you re not going to slap on 10 pounds of fat on the cycle, and you ll be able to see your abdominal wall still. Even when your ab muscles are swollen during a cycle, just like every skeletal muscle iin your body, they re still going to be visible.

    The thing is, if you get too worried about keeping calories low while bulking, you may lose out on some growth opportunity. It's a fine line to tread, between keeping added fat managable and maximizing your bulking cycle. Personally, I try not to dwell too much on my abs while bulking. Save that for when you re ready to cut, and make the most of your bulking while you re doing it. The end result will make it worth the short term sacrafice.

    If you desire to maintain abdominal definition then 'bulking' is not what you want to be doing. Attention to nutrition macronutrition and timing and the addition of post training and or seperate cardio sessions can also stave off excessive fat gain while trying to provide sufficient caloric surplus for LMB.
    We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.
