I was trying to google the information but nothing really showed up for my exact question. I'm trying to bulk from 5'7 (or 5'8?) to 230lbs (205 would be ideal just as a realistic goal for now). I'm not really worried about not having a 6 pack or any of that definition. My end result is to look something similar to: I understand the eating aspect would be lots of calories, proteins, good fats etc. but looking at his arms, shoulders etc would that require a lot of weight lifting or would bodyweight exercises be sufficient enough with a high caloric diet? I made a thread awhile ago about trying out this GOMAD stint, true to it's word I've gained 4lbs since I've been doing it and I have another month and a bit to go but I just want to make sure that I'm not going about this all wrong. Can I naturally get thicker by incorporating bodyweight exercises with my current diet that I'm using for bulking or will I have to do weight lifting as well? The reason I'm asking this is because I keep hearing this 'skinny fat' term being thrown around and when I think of that I think of Jon Dore: Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated, and I couldn't find this exact question in the FAQ or any of the stickies. Unless I'm completely blind.
