opinons, on abs pushing bellyfat out
i cut to 9% 163 and recently bulked to 170 because my abs blew, now theyre bigger (i feel and see them) but when i sit or am loated on carb up days feels as if my fats being pushed out by my muscles. am i gaining fat or is it the muscles pushing on fat. i.e. i can still pinch the same amount of fat.

If it is Bulking and cutting cycles that you are doing just stop!
Bulking helps you gain fat cells that will never go away!
Find your body type, it may take a while but when you find out your body type
Take a look at what options you have of dieting, because its the food that will be the main part of your transformation, or change of Human body!
Its all about how you wanna look, Muscular big or Lean mass & sharp Physic!
If you grew up thin! I heard Optumim: Serious Mass with Animal Pak from universal nutrition are great together!

bulk then cut

competitive bodybuilders have been 'bulking' and 'cutting' for decades.
however, i've definitely been rethinking the idea.
one thing to keep in mind with the above method, is that while you are cutting off the excess fat you gained during your bulk, you are not bulking.
what i mean is, if you gain a bunch of size during a bulk, then go to cut, A. you are probably going to be losing some muscle during your cut. B if you're not losing your muscle, you're probably cutting slowly with a very modest calorie deficit which will take a while. which brings us to C. during your cutting period you are not gaining muscle. this is time you could be adding muscle, but instead you're possibly losing it.
A. bulk 6 months, cut 3-4 months.
B. recomp for 10 months.
I think with choice B you can enjoy a better body throughout, while still adding the same amount of muscle, plus you won't have to go through the pain of being on a ''cut''.
i like 'B' better, personally.
For me, the action IS the juice.

it was only what I hear from others taking info from nutritionist, they say the fat cells will effect you in the long run, one more thing I had just checked yesterday, always work out, do not get lazy and just quit, that's when you will see the effects

A counter to that would be to slowly try to gain LBM while monitoring your diet more closely. So you're trying to bulk without putting on much fat.

To the OP, yes, you can get bloated without any increase in body fat. This is very likely to occur on carb refeeds if you are lower carb for the majority of the time.
Assuming your skinfold measurement is exactly the same (accurate calipers, not a guesswork pinch grip with fingers) then you are probably suffering from simple abdominal distension from an inflamed GI tract.
It may feel like the muscles are pushing out the fat because it is hard. This is from your organs rather than your muscles.
Nothing to worry about. Potentially digestive disorders or a poor choice of food but it is very common to bloat on carb refeed days.

Adipocyte hyperplasia (the increase in number of fat cells) occurs most frequenty following birth and during adolescence/puberty when energy intake is extremely positive (way over whats used), or due to genetic malfunctions. Adipocyte hyperplasia in adults only occurs when adipocyte hypertrophy is near maxed out. In other words, you have to gain a significant amount of fat before your body starts producing new fat cells.
Your traditional bulk and cuts are made possible mostly via the use of PEDS. You can put on a lot more muscle and you can hang onto it easier while dropping fat faster.
For those of us going about it natural, it only makes sense to find yourset point. For most of us, this will be between 8-12% body fat where we are able to maximize muscle gains while keeping fat gain at a minimum, which goes along with ryino's second statement.
To the original poster, its more than likely bloating and excessive food in the digestive tract that is causing it. It could be (though is less likely) an accumulation of visceral fat.
