Slow down your calories! No need to gain 48 lbs in 6 months. Keep it up like that and you will be a sad man when the cutting phase comes around. Aim for about 100-300 grams increase in body weight pr week. Which equals 100-300 calories surplus pr day. Excessive eating will only make you fat and won't help you build any more muscle. Your bf is probably around 20-25 in the last pic. Personally I would aim for a recomp over 1-2 months, and then continue bulking

recomp? Explain...and yeah I gained 40 of those pounds too fast but I've been clean bulking for the past month and the weight gain has been much slower.

Recomping has you eating at maintenance, not at a bulking kcal amount and continue to lift heavy. It's a tediously slow process, but would be effective for you to allow you to maintain muscle while losing fat and not lose LBM. -3X
