Cut or bulk?

Hi po sa mga fitness guru dito. Badly need your help.

Nagtetrain po ako for almost 5 months na. 2 months na tinuro nung instructor at almost 3 months sa 5x5.

I used to weigh only 132 lbs and now 154 lbs na ako. I was skinny fat when I started. Wala lang ako picture nung nagstart ako. Hindi ko rin alam yung body fat percentage ko dati. Ngayon BF% ko ay 18%. Gusto ko po yung laki ng katawan ko ngayon. Kaso nung nagbasa ako, dun ko narealize na andaming excess fat pa rin.

May nabasa ako sa fitness group sa fb na mag-bulk muna habang di pa narereach and 1RM. May nabasa rin ako sa bodybuilding.com na dapat nasa 10-15% lang daw BF bago mag-bulk kasi di ko marereach yung optimum muscle mass gains; may napanuod din ako sa youtube na may same claim. Di ko po alam gagawin ko. Hahaha.

Eto po current stats ko sa 5x5 if kailangan:
BP - 120lbs
SQ - 170lbs
DL - 180 lbs
OHP - 80 lbs
Rows - 90 lbs

Sana po may sumagot.

PS
Balak ko na po magpalit ng PHUL na workout and bawasan squats ko kasi medyo sumasakit na yung tuhod ko gawa ng past injury. Sabi ng trainer ko wala naman problem form ko. Okay lang po ba yun kahit ganyan pa lang stats ko sa 5x5?

Thanks po!

    Pic IMO is a better judgement.

    Sa akin lang, and because I'm coming from an aesthetic background.... you should cut down to 10%, bulking up at 18-20%, you gain more fats than muscles. Not only that, your metabolism slows down, and you won't look like aesthetically pleasing. If you just care about lifting heavy weight, based on posting your own lifting stats, then tbt as a different story.

    Pag masakit tuhod mo, may mali sa form mo. Either you have a wrong muscle activation or you need to rehabilitate it with other workout.
