    Post Been cutting now started bulking

    Hey everyone, so i started lifting from December to July ( 7 months) eating on a deficit cause i was skinny fat, went from 73 kg/161 lbs to 60 kg/132 lbs and height 178 cm/ 5' 10. Now I'm eating on a surplus for about a month and went to 64 kg/141 lbs, i know its a bit too much gain for a month but after the cut a felt like i was starving and had crazy cravings which i couldn't control. Should i keep bulking for like a year straight and force myself on a 200-300 calorie surplus? Also what is my bodyfat approximately? Here are some photos of me now:

    I have also noticed that the left side of my body is more protruding that the right ( bigger left shoulder, bigger waist on the left , even my jawline is better and wider on the left) . Its really bothering me cause I'm way better looking from my left angle and my right chest looks awful cause of that. Can't recall an injury, can it be cause of the way i used to sleep as a child?

    I wouldn't worry too much about a little asymmetry at this stage. Just make sure you're on a well-designed program and doing your core compound lifts. As far as bulking for an entire year, that really depends on how disciplined you think you are, because you're going to have to diet all that extra fat off at the end of your bulk. When you gain a lot of fat it kind of hides your muscles and it can be discouraging. I didn't start seeing my actual progress until I was well within my cutting cycle.
    Progress from February to August 2022

    1RM's @170 lbs.:
    Bench - 160 to 220
    Squat - 195 to 285
    Lat Pulldown - 195 to 275
    Overhead Press - 115 to 155
    Rack Pull - 320 to 500
