    Yes, but if you use terminology properly, one cannot "bulk" and "lean" at the same time. It's quite a paradox.

    This != lose fat and gain muscle, which can be done.

    achieve "bawla" status is the correct terminology.

    Keep it simple. "Get in better shape" is what I'd say.

    Generally bulking means gaining muscle mass (and in many cases some fat) while in a caloric surplus. Getting lean or cutting means losing fat in a caloric deficit (and in many cases lose some muscle as well).

    It's just the terminology and connotation we use. Not be a stickler, just giving the heads up.

    Yet for a new lifter its still very possible to put on some muscle while being a caloric deficit or even lean up by getting the diet in check.
