    I can give you a couple of examples from my last couple of bulks. I'm perhaps a late novice (despite decidedly novice numbers, my days of being able to add weight to the bar every week are well behind me).

    First bulk I went from 155lb and about 14% body fat to 174lb and about 18%.

    More recently I went from 165lb and about 15% to 175lb and about 17%.

    Both times I gained about 2.5-3lb per month and if my bodyfat estimates are accurate, I gained about half fat, half muscle.

    Thor, Brian Shaw, Julius Maddox are probably good examples of that sort of progression.
