Hey guys.

I had a dexa scan done about a month or so ago and it states that I am at 19% BF. Now usually I don't like to bulk unless I'm about 15 or lower. But winter is coming... so I must bro down and get swole Tongue. I was quite surprised about my reading.


This photo was taken 3 days ago in Cali on vacation.

Opinions?

Hmm, difficult to tell from just one pic but you don't look 19% to me. I'd go for it.

my experiance would say just up calories a bit so your growing slow and actually growing muscle and not just getting a fatty.

Then when you come to diet you'll have less bother and no loose skin.

I just want to get a little bigger this winter. Maybe gain about 5lbs muscle give or take. I am 195 currently and used to sit at about 215 ripped back in my football days. I like the look a bit better. Plus it'll be nicer for me when I dice up in the summer if I have a few extra pounds of muscle

This. Do a lean bulk and just keep an eye on things

I'm not sure if I'm fat enough to have loose skin at this point. The fact that my abs are still visible leads me to believe that I may have had an inaccurate reading

Currently my carbs mainly consist of oats / sweet potato and brown rice.

What are all of your carbs of choice on a clean bulk?

No such thing as a clean bulk. No food is clean or dirty. It's all about macros, micros and calories

Lean bulk as in 200-300 calories surplus and minimal fat gain

As above, lean bulk seems entirely possible at this point. Dexa scan is supposed to be very accurate, but judging from that pic you don't look 19% to me  Huh
