I'm coming to the end of my first cycle of HST and have made some good gains. My question concerns the inevitable fat gains during a bulking cycle. Starting at 77kg at 11% bf I'm now sitting at 83kg and 14% bf I have made gains of 1cm on upper arms, 1cm on forearms, 0.5cm on calves, 2.5cm on legs, 2cm on chest and 2cm on shoulders. However.... I have gained 2.5cm around my waist! Starting at 3000 cals with good macros I didn't start putting on weight until 4000 cals! High for 77kg yes? My question is did I go too high therefore gaining considerable fat? Should I reduce calories slightly to slow fat accumulation? Thanks for any help.
