Get your Bulk on

So to bulk you need to increase your food intake. Is this increase above the extra calories you use lifting? For example, if I don’t exercise, I burn 2400 cals a day. If I do exercise, I burn 3000 cals per day. When bulking, do I increase my food from 2400 to 3000 or do I increase from 2400 to...
