But you've made good progress before and know what you're doing so I'm sure whatever you end up doing will be fine.
I think that's where I'm at..."gaintaining."
I really want to be conservative with my bulking. If I can gain a couple pounds of muscle during my bulking periods that's great.
I've found that if I have an extensive bulking period things tend to spiral out of control. I need to minimize that risk, especially since I'm not at the 10-12% bodyfat range.
