    i think it depends on your definition of extra calories. if you define your daily calorific requirements as maintanece calories plus calories required to build muscle/workout, then any calories on top of this would be "extra calories" and hence stored as fat.

    when on a bulk not all extra cals are building muscle. that is why some do a "clean bulk" to keep the fat gain to a minimum.

    you have 3 threads with the same question running.

    Muscles need calories to regrow and not die. Your body will eat your muscles before it eats your fat. Just like I would eat a side of beef before I would eat a side of fat. jk

    Actually it does make sense think about it! building muscle increases your weight. most people will gain body fat on a bulk - obviously .when bulking its better to eat slightly too many calories than too few.

    its not rocket science you know
