Bulk or Cut?16484

I am 19 years old and am 141.4lbs with 14.1% Body fat. Should I be cutting down to about 10% body fat and then bulk? I just don't know if this is the right move since I am on the smaller side. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hard to tell without a picture and your height.

There is no "should," depends on your goals and the individual. 14% body fat isn't that high, so you should be able to lean bulk and put on some size without putting on much fat. If you don't have much muscle, there might not be anything to cut down to.

I'd keep bulking if I were you, you're still fairly lean. And clean your mirror.

Ok sounds good... Nothing I can do with mirror though - in the low cost dorm. That stuff is caked on there. Thanks for the advice

You need to bulk without a doubt tbh.

Do what you feel like. I would bulk if I were you. And clean that damn mirror, that might be the worst I've seen.

Lean bulk would be what I recommend as well. I think your arms would look much better if there was more muscle on it.

And also can you empty the bin when you are done cleaning the mirror? That is like a germ haven..
