3k ... 3.5k ?


13% bf, 178lbs.

My maintinence calories is around 3000 with excersize.

I'd say more like 2750 to 3000.

Anywhere from 3000-4000 depending on your metabolism.

I hate sounding like I'm flaming because I'm not, but I'm just not a fan of the term "clean bulk" because the two words are self-defeating in my opinion when it comes to bodybuilding. Just add a healthy balance of calories to your current diet while avoiding the sugars and saturated fats. Unless your genetics are perfect (and there are some out there), you're bound to put some fat on if you're going to do a good bulk.

Here's some more "food for thought" and keep in mind that I'm not flaming. Take the opposite of "clean bulk" and you get "dirty cut". I don't think I've heard anyone use that term yet but it makes about as much sense as "clean bulk". Eat big to lift big.

Start at 500 above maintenance. Then trial and error once you get the scales moving. Keep an eye on the mirror to avoid excessive fat accumulation.
Good luck..
