    Expected Fat and Muscle% Gain on Bulk

    I am currently trying to bulk, although I use the term somewhat loosely, (more just shifting my workout focus from cardio/plyo to weight training and eating more in the hopes of putting back on the 5-10 lbs too many I lost from doing too much cardio/plyo.)

    I just want to know if there is any sort of "expected" percentage of fat vs. muscle gain when bulking, or what people's experiences have been when they've bulked. I realize there are a lot of factors that contribute to this (intensity/type/frequency of workouts, size/configuration/timing of diet) but I just want a general idea of a range so that as notice the fat gain, I can gauge whether its a reasonable/inevitable amount, or if its maybe higher than average and I could be making some adjustments.

    To be specific (and superficial ), am I going to, for instance, just lose some of my ab definition or completely develop a tummy? or will it just not look different? I just want to prepare myself. I feel as though if I know what to expect, I'll be more likely to stick with it as I notice the muffin top starting to form...hehe.

    Thanks!

    There is no "expected" fat gain. As you said, there are too many factors to take into account to give an answer. At 92 lbs, I wouldn't worry to much about your abs as you are underweight. Unless you grossly misjudge your caloric intake and slack on the workouts, you're a long way from a muffin top.
