    Bulking at 12%

    I am very strict with my diet and I do not have issues cutting (I compete in BB). My problem is bulking. I want to try and maintain 12% bf when bulking. For some reason, I always go up to about 15%. I usually cycle with dbol , test, and deca . This cycle I switched the dbol for Tbol seeing if that will make a difference. Right now I am at about 12% but I am gaining about .7 kg/ day. I am about 500 cal above TDEE. Do I cut back even though I'm hungry. I normally need to force feed myself to get sufficient calories.
    I am presently 47/43/10 (P/C/F). Carbs play a big part in my weight gain. I am thinking of carb cycling. Any other ideas.
    I want that Scotchguard look while bulking.

    I do 3-4 cardio sessions a week while bulking. That helps keep the metabolism ramped up and keep some of the unwanted flab. However in reality, anytime you're in a calorically positive state you will put on some fat. Unless you are Kel of course.

    I'd prefer a slower bulk, 200cals or thereabouts above maintenance.

    It also seems that whenever I up my carbs, the calories always seem screwed up. Almost like I eat less calories and gain weight.

    I used to, but I felt that it effected leg growth. I am doing LSS 4 days a week for 20 minutes for that very reason. I just am never able to dial it in to a predictable diet. Cutting, I can. It seems like the increase in carbs throws out the linearity in calories to weight gain.
