What is the optimal amount of BF to grow?
Say I want to pack on a good amount of muscle over winter with no consideration of fat and water, what is the best place to be in terms of body fat when trying to grow the most possible muscle?
Before my first cycle my stats were:
180lbs @ 6-7%
After I hit the dbol my bf climbed to about 10% and thats when I seemed to make the most gains. Now it's dropped down again to about 8% in my 9th week of Test. Its not because of diet, I'm eating like a starving cow trapped in a hay silo, I just have a very fast metabolism and I'm an ecto on top of that.
I got a sweet ass deal on a test/tren combo so I went ahead and bought that but seeing how tren will lower my bf further in all likelyhood will that hinder my progress? I can always save it and go for a drol/test/deca cycle but I want to be sure I make the right choice.

For the most part, the heavier you are the more you will be able to lift. This is largly due to the mechnical advantage the additional weight gives you. Having said this, you have two choices. Add weight by adding fat or by adding lean body mass. If your doing a few bulking cycles to get your lean body mass up then I would say go for it. Just remember, ultimately you want to realize your strength goals by achieving the lean body mass necessary, not by simply "bulking up" through increased body fat. Just my .02

I think its pretty individualistic. For some its hard to grow leaner than 10... I grow fairly well at 9.5. But Id like to be leaner... this interests me as well bump!
