If you are worried about gaining too much fat, bulk at a surplus of about 250 calories and that will put on about 2 pounds in a month.. Bulk for about 6 weeks to put on about 3 pounds, then for 2 weeks you could do a very minimal cut.. Maybe like a 300 calorie deficit. You will lose a little bit of fat that way, and if done right, after those 2 months, your gains SHOULD be 100% lean..

Now realize, this is under optimal conditions.. This does not mean that you will not gain any fat, its just an idea

nothing wrong with it but not going to make a difference if your bulking. If anything its just going to prolong the bulk. You will gain weight regardless of what you do if your bulking its just not worth wasting a week of your bulk by cutting.

but if i cut along side of it, it will avoid waist size gain right?

no it will just prolong it. you will still gain weight over time. If you want to gain muscle you need to be able to put up with some fat gain

orite, so im just better off gaining it all at once then cutting right.

thanks for the help

False..

Look up in the nutrition logs, Feeding The Moose..

He averages about 0.4 pounds of weight gain per week and about 1.5 per month..

With a good amount of protein, fat at 0.45g per pound of bodyweight, and occasional LISS cardio, gains will be as close to 100% lean as possible..

Yes it's ok but :

1. 3-4 weeks won't make a big difference , building muscle takes time

But that slow of a bulk really won't make you fat (like you wanted)
