    Does the body put on fat more readily at lower bodyfats?

    I know the body partitions say 200 calories between muscle and fat better at 12% vs 20%. I've read that fat is estrogenic which explains at least a part of that.

    What about when you go lower? I'm a little under 12% now. I can stop at 11%, 10%, 9%. To me it is mostly about

    1) Where I want to be mid-bulk (starting from lower obviously helps with that)
    2) If fat stores more readily at a lower bodyfat, if caloric surplus is the same.

    I'd assume a guy at 6% would put on fat way faster than a guy at 14%. If true does that also mean a guy at 9 or 10% is going to put on fat faster than at 11 or 12%?

    The leaner you get, the harder it is to lose more fat - and the reverse is true, the leaner you are, the easier it is to gain some fat back.

    This is why low single digit body fat is not sustainable and only achieved for stage competition, it's basically impossible to maintain it long-term.

    If you're planning to go straight into a bulk I wouldn't bother cutting super low as it won't last long.

    When switching from a low body fat amount to wanting to add mass the body wants to add fat it’s just how we’re programmed genetically. The key is to not go overboard on calories and understand your maintenance calories are lower than before and go to that amount for awhile and then add a little at a time until you’re a few hundred above maintenance.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
