Bulking is 85% nutrition, 15% training, you can train with this program as vigorously as you'd like, but without a SURPLUS of calories influencing overall weight gain you will gain a very minimal amount of weight. It all depends how long you plan on bulking for?, what is you're current nutritional caloric intake per day? (protein wise etc), all these are important in establishing a very usefull and safe bulking routine that will account for a large amount of gains if done correctly.

Yes, but what is youre body structure and caloric maintenance level?, a recommended bulking nutritional routine specifs that a person must create a caloric surplus, usually around 500 calories, and should gain about 1 pound per week.

If you are eating adequately then you should bulk no problem, if theres some nutritional flaws and you are not recording/ training at a high level of intensity the results might be impacted in a negative way.

Hope this helps

Couldn't agree more! Properly knowing your caloric baseline is essential. 500cal could make a world of difference in weight gain. Something I learned later than I should have!
