I know I normally post this sort of stuff to my friends on MFP. But I felt, it would be easier to post here and get a collective opinion.
Stats : Male/29/5 FT 6/Weight fluctuates 120IBs-123IBs
Current Goal : Build Muscle
Lifting Experience : Nothing structured from the beginning of August 2019. Lifting started properly and consistentish May onwards.
I won't go into my full beginning history. But this year from March onwards. I sort of took lifting a bit more seriously at home, following a Dumbbell workout Plan for 12 weeks, and then moving onto 'Fierce 5' in a such. Now I spend time at the gym and time at home with dumbbells. I focus mainly on these at the Gym:
Bent Over Row
Calf Machine Raise
at home I focus on 5 Day Split with Dumbbells. All lifts on the above at the gym are up week by week at least. Overhead Press I did stall, but I managed to push through.
Monday - Gym 11AM, At Home DB Chest, Tricep, and Shoulders 3PM

I have attached images of my body so far today of Front, Side, and Back with a pinch test front. Am I bulking too severely? I am not sure if I am gaining too much fat. My weight on the scales didn't really gain much. I have attached the graph. I have been aiming for 0.5IBs per week to lean bulk.
Over the period of time I have been cycling calories ranging from 2200 - 3400. But lately for consistency I have been sticking to 2880 for the last 2-3 weeks. I set MFP to 'Very Active' because of the step count below, workouts and weight wasn't moving much. I can provide more data if needed. Attached also is my weightograph chart
Am I gaining fat too fast guys? According to multiple sites I have calculated my maintenance I think to around 2300-2400 due to working/dog walking which comes to around 12000-20000+ steps a day. I feel if I cut down or even mini cut now, I would just look skinny with no mass again.
So yeah any feedback would be great
