im bulking for 3 months now and gained about 5 1/2 kg (12lbs). Whats your opinion about it? I really cant see any visible progress. Where are the 12lbs?
Before: 66kg (145lbs) and 12% BF
Now: 72kg /158lbs) and 14,6% BF
I measured BF with a caliper but what would you guys say how much bf do i have?
Here are my current pics: (Check my before pics on my bodyspace pls, cant add more pics)
I workout 3-4times a week and i cant train my legs cause i got an injury
Last workout i tried is Kris Gethins DTP program and i liked it, but i didnt gain any extra weight during this time.
Im taking about 3000kcal a day and supporting my nutrition with a massgainer cause it is hard for me to get those 3000kcal.
I want to bulk until March and gain another 2-3kg and then i want to get ready for summer. But i fear i will be as skinny as i started before bulking.
Advice or any sort of help/opinion would be nice sirs!

14/15% seems right! If you had some before pics it would be easier to see where you gaining mass! I personally would stick to a five day split focused on heavy compound lifts!Fight Club was the beginning, now it's moved out of the basement, it's called Project Mayhem. -Tyler Durden.
There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there. - Patrick Bateman

hell no, you just began lifting
in your position i would do heavy compound lifts and isolations (freeweights and machines) and a push/pull routine (msg me if you dont have a idea for a fitting routine). you will have to spend around 1,5h for each day
also id suggest swimming besides lifting
-you have to invest much time in it but it will pay off
in terms of nutrition, you should eat much (calorie wise), but healthy (and tons of protein for sure)
when you do swimming besides lifting and eat healthy you will hardly gain fatWere all gonna make it

Then you would say 3-4 times a week will be enough?
Already doing compound lifts and isolations at the end of my workout. I began lifting srsly in april 2012 so it is a long way to go until i reach my goal! (Physics like you have would be nice! no homo :P)
Swimming is a good idea. Thx for this! Cause other cardio wont be good for my leg
Im taking about 3000kcal on training days and 2600 on off days. 400g of carbs, 200g of protein and 70g of fat.
Can you tell where i added some mass? I just see some gains around my belly but not on muscle

You should hit each bodypart 2 times a week imo, so it depends on your routine how often you have to lift a week
You asked about Chest, you should definately add Benchpress to your routine since its a must have for building strengh (and strengh leads to more mass at the end even if its due to more weight for the isolations)
You got broader delts, gained some lattisimusWere all gonna make it
