Look more like 15-20% to me but, if you want to bulk up, I don't think it matters.
A lot of men seem to think that you have to get to 10% or less to bulk but I'm not sure who came up w/that idea.
Anyway, FWIW, all of the muscle mass that I have now came from lifting heavy while UNINTENTIONALLY "bulking" from 160 to 200. When I "cut" back to 160, I had all of these muscles I had never seen b4 and I certainly wasn't at 10% BF either when I started or ended.
So, if you want to bulk up, just do it. Only make sure you're not just sitting on your behind watching TV and eating bon-bons while you do. Lift whatever is heavy for you and keep pushing the wt up progressively until you're ready to cut.
I think you'll be surprised w/what you see after that.
