Stair step or steady state?
I've recently gone from 165 to 183 (at 5'11") and my target weight is about 200 at 8-10% BF.
Is the best approach to go steady state up to 200 and then work on strength and body comp, or should I stair step it (focus on strength at 185, get the body comp under control -- I'm probably at 15% BF), and then do another push at mass gain?
(Besides, I'm sick of eating so much :-)
I would recommend getting leaner at your current BW, and then go from there. I personally prefer to stay 10-12% even when trying to gain weight.
Get under 10-8% BF first. Realize what allen mentioned above about your LBM and how many lbs you are really trying for. Plus you are more anabolically primed hormonally at a lower BF vs a higher BF will probably give you more fat than muscle in a gain cycle.
