Lose fat first or bulk first?

Hi first post, looking for some advice: whats best to bulk up first and then lose any excess fat or lose the fat first?

Iv'e just bought some creatine and lean system 7 to accompany protein.... are these counteracting each other taking a fat burner and protein / creatine at the same time?

Cheers in advance Ewan

    Well first of all...welcome to MT

    Secondly...it's up to you what you're comfortable with and what level you're at now.

    I'm gunna disagree with the masses here i think, i cut first and then bulk, although it might not make sense to a lot, you can notice your gains a lot more with a lower bodyfat and see how you body is changing.

    horses for courses IMO. bulk and you'll gain some fat which may not be pleasing, cut and you may not have much mass and look real skinny.

    So it depends on where you are now, if fairly lean then bulk, if overweight (fat wise) then cut.

    Lean I consider under about 15% BF give or take.

    Winter is a good time for a bulk IMO as no one will notice if you gain a little fat as you'll have more clothes on like jumpers and such like.

    I'd say it depends on your starting BF.

    If you're 12% then don't cut first, best to bulk up then cut back
    If you're 19% then bulking would be a bad idea as you'd get fat, cut down then bulk afterwards.

    I was 19% decided to cut (now 15.5% couple of months later). Hoping to get to 14-15%, then no idea what I'll do.

    All depends on your target BF and weight etc
