Trying to work this out
 
I know this is in the future, but I just wanted to figure this out and form some guide lines.

The body fat % I want to end up being is 10.
I remember one of you telling me that if I add a significant amount of muscle, my body fat percentage will end up going down.
This makes sense. The amount of body fat would obviously go down when there's more muscle on the body.

Before I started I got into a pretty un-motivating mind set to say the least.
as you know I felt like I couldn't win which ever way I went at it.
I had to bulk to get bigger, which meant gaining some fat, but then I couldn't get rid of that fat for another 5 or so years, because cutting would be detrimental to my growth seen as I'm a teen.
It got to a point where I couldn't be bothered worrying and thinking about it anymore, so I just started and hoped for the best, whilst having faith in what you told me when you said I'd end up looking better, and it wouldn't happen like in the pessimistic way I'd thought.

One thing I'd come to terms with was that i'd end up having to do a cut once I'd stopped growing, but then I remembered what was said about your body fat going down as you gained more muscle.

Could I end up achieving the body I want, without ever doing a cut?
If what you said is right, then I could get to 10% bf, simply by adding more muscle mass.

does anyone know roughly how much muscle I'd need to put on to get to 10%?

I know this is going to be way ahead in the future, but I thought it might get me a little more motivated.

Dude, For the love of Christ - Eat!!! You weigh 120lbs at 5 foot 10 inches ( per your log- In mid to late March) You have soooo many years before you need to worry about cutting. I do not mean to sound rude but you seem obsessed with the minutia as opposed to getting big and strong. Eat 80% clean food and eat as much as you can. Do this and lift heavy weight. When you have done this for at least a year..... THEN worry about "dialing it in"... Best of luck and happy lifting.

I hear you, but that was my point!
That I shouldn't have to end up cutting, and weather I can achieve my goals just purely by bulking, which it seems I can.
I'm not worrying, this was more a realization that got me more motivated.

you are making good progress linden, and you could be one of the lucky ones who can bulk with little fat gain so yeah you could reach your goal and not having to cut.

this is small detail that i wouldn't even think about.
