Recently Added Mixing Up Diet to Overcome Plateaus Cut Body Fat in Half Three Years of Progress More Than Halfway to Goal Weight Loss Goal Achieved in 3 Years Calorie Counting Basics Wearing Shorts with Confidence! A) Any time a person tries to add a significant amount of muscle to their frame, they’ll always gain some additional body fat with it.
B) Any time a person tries to lose a significant amount of body fat, they won’t be able to build much if any muscle during that time.
The question of whether to bulk or cut first should be looked at on a case-by-case basis rather than following one concrete guideline that every skinny fat guy should follow.
Sometimes it makes more sense to start off with a cutting phase, and other times it makes more sense to start off with a bulking phase. This is just the way it is, and it’s important to think longer term and realize that the initial physique you achieve is nothing more than a temporary stepping stone to your ideal body. Ultimately, this just comes down to assessing your current physique and then combining it with the approach that you believe will keep you most motivated moving forward, whether it’s to lean down first or gain more size first. In this case you’ll want to get yourself into a proper calorie deficit (around 500 calories below your maintenance level), combine that with some weight training and cardio, and focus on dropping around 1-2 pounds per week. Once you’ve gotten yourself down to a good lean base (roughly around the 12% body fat range), you can then shift into a controlled lean bulk and focus on adding muscle size. If your current physique is more along these lines, then focus on building up a solid foundation of muscle size and strength first, and you can then shift into a fat loss phase later on once you’ve gained some reasonable mass.

Just make sure to take things very slowly and to focus on building muscle in a controlled and gradual manner.
Put yourself onto a small calorie surplus of around 200-300 calories above your maintenance level, and keep the weight gain limited to around 2-3 pounds per month at the most. However, given the choice between the two, if someone is fairly skinny and not carrying that much fat, I would generally recommend concentrating on gaining overall muscle first. Either approach is ultimately okay in the big picture, so the most important thing of all is that you simply make a decision, take action and stick with it.
Just remember that this stuff takes time and patience, and whatever initial body you achieve after your first bulk or cut is just a temporary phase on the road to your ideal body.

Just curious what my bf looks like, cause I aim to get to 7-8%, and I have 4 weeks to get it done. Your be very surprised how low somebody?s BF% can actually be before they can see their abs when non flexing. And since you’re only carrying a minimal amount of muscle to begin with, starting with a cutting phase could simply leave you looking overly thin and weak.

In this case you’d probably be best going straight into a clean bulk in order to fill your body out first.
