    Im 5'10 165 pounds. I am currently bulking right now. Couple days ago a personal trainer offered to measure my body fat. My body fat % turned out to be 17.7%. Before I bulked two years ago, I was around 135 lbs at 12% bodyfat. Does that seem pretty normal or did I gain way too much fat and not enough muscle mass? Should I make my diet a little bit more clean and incorporate some cardio into my workout? (I dont cardio at all)

    how did he check you bf first of all, second 17% at that weight and height is near impossible...just doesnt add up.

    30 pounds and 5.7% fat....ya thats not good imo..you could have stayed at 12-13 easily and still gained the weight. 12% bf is good for a weight of 210-220 at your height

    This is all speculation without a pic though

    Hm.. damn. He used body fat calipers with the measuring tape. I'll try and get pics later to be more accurate.
