    Physique review and training program help?

    Body stats:
    5'8
    162 lbs
    Lifts- Squat:275 Deadlift:345 Bench: 250

    I'm currently eating about 2500 calories a day and have gone from 155 to 162 lbs in 2 months. I haven't seen much improvement in terms of physique or strength in that time. I am always torn between either lean bulking or maintaining because my body holds on to a lot of fat when I bulk. I'm probably around 18-20% body fat but I want to get to around 15%. How can I do this while focusing on getting stronger?

    I'd put you over 20% bodyfat, maybe in the 22-23% zone. If I were you I would focus on fat loss vice gaining right now.

    Eat in a calorie deficit, while continuing your lifting program.

    Your bench is abnormally high compared to your other two lifts as well, which suggests possible strength/training imbalances.

    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.
