As you can see I'm on the heavy side.
I'm training to meet the fitness standards of the Navy so I have to loose body fat but I also want to get big to.
So if I bulk Ill gain weight but I dont want that.
Whats a way I can approach this?

Just eat at maitenance calories. figure out what those are google online calorie calculator. You can eat at like up to 200-300 cals below maitenance but don't eat any lower because it will be hard to gain muscle/strength
Do rippetoe's starting strength routine Workout A and workout B going to the gym every other day. This routine is in a sticky thread at the top of this forum.
You will need to learn to do squats, deadlifts and presses right here is a channel by Rippetoe himself where he explains how to do these very well: (really you need to watch these vids they are very hard excercises to learn/master, especially squats)

Anyways, Haunt, I'd figure out your maintenance calories either using the freedieting.com calorie calculator or mifflin st. jeor calculator (both can be found through a simple google search). Start tracking your macros (macronutrients) and either attempt to eat at maintenance calories or go into a slight caloric deficit (between 100-300 calories). I'm training for the Army/Navy fitness standards too Good luck broEat like an animal
