    Unhappy Bulk or cut?

    Hi, I'm a 16 yo, I used to be really fat, then I started dieting and became very skinny, now I packed a bit of muscle (especially arms and abs) and I am at 16% body fat, but my physique is strange looking so I don't know if I should cut to 12/11% bf and then lean bulk or lean bulk with a small deficit now then cut all the fat for the next summer (or eventually, if possible, do a body recomp). I'll show photos of my physique for you to understand better my situation. Thanks!

    Edit: I don't know how to attach photos, but I saw in other threads that you can do it

    If you're still newer to lifting and haven't maxed out your beginner gains, eat at maintenance. Your body will pull energy from fat and use that to fuel muscle growth until your body gets used to the new stimulus (Basically a recomp like you said). Do this and then eventually just eat in a slight calorie deficit if your goal is to lose fat. Also "lean bulk with a small deficit" doesn't make any sense, think about it. Do you mean lean bulk with a small surplus?
