I want to bulk, but I'm scared of gaining fat, what do I do?

Hi, I'm a 20 year old Male. I'm 5'11 and 155 lbs. My body fat is 12.5 percent. I want to build muscle, but I'm scared of gaining too much fat whether it's a clean or dirty bulk. What should I do here? Thanks!

    Maybe you should recomp. Maintain your weight, eat plenty of protein and lift weights to lose fat and build muscle at the same time. The downside is that its a slow process (even slower than bulking and cutting cycles).

    Heavy weight 5 sets of 5, and burn out afterwards. Eat more proteins and also take some magnesium supplements to fuel your energy. You’re young now but if not too careful you’ll burn it out your body and stop progressing.

    Increase protein intake.
