    Exclamation Does my bulk look successful or is it a failure

    First time posting but here we go.
    I staring bulking from 175 in April 2020 and am now 195 as of July 2020. I do and upper lower split twice a week (up/L/up). I’ve never been this heavy but I’ve also never been this strong, which isn’t too strong compared to most people on this board. (Incline bench press 200x5, squat 225X5, body weight pull ups 15) Anyway, my physique is what I’m more worried about than my numbers. I don’t know if I’m just insecure about being almost 200 pounds for the first time in my life or if I really am packing on a little too much fat while bulking? What should I do? Eat more? Eat less? Keep it the same and stop being a little baby about getting fat? Btw I’m eating at 3000 calories a day. Pretty clean mostly. Cheat a little bit on the weekend.

    Smile My current physique photos are uploaded to my profile

    My images failed to post on my post. I uploaded pictures to my profile of what I currently look like. Can someone one please let me know how I’m doing?

    20 pounds in 3 months. You gained mostly fat. Not the way I'd go, but if you cut down and have more muscle then yes it was successful

    Hey nice to hear your journey so far. I would say 3000 cal is too much, I would cut back to around 2700 and see where you go from there. You want to be gaining 1 pound of bodyweight per week, anymore then it will be mostly fat. Also, the cheating on weekends won't help lol

    1 pound will be mostly fat as well. 0.5lb/wk is generally the accepted natural limit for people without alien genetics

    If you ate clean and can still do 15 reps of a full range of motion pull up, then I'd say you definitely didn't "fail". Could it have been better optimized? Yeah, probably, but it sounds like you didn't go crazy with gaining fat.

    Also hard to say anything since your pics don't work.
