Right now I'm 5'10 and 167lbs. I want to lose some fat and put on some muscle (for vanity really).

Should I focus on losing the fat first, then bulking? Or would it be more efficient to bulk up then lose fat?

What is your current workout, and how long have you been working out?

419 - What is your current workout, and how long have you been working out?

Just the basic compound lifts, Squat, Chest Press, Shoulder Press, Row, and Pull downs. 2 sets of 5, then max out on the last set. I've been doing that for strength maintenance, but have seen an increase in my reps on all my lifts.

I was going to start the 531 Boring but Big routine for bulking.

As you know, it's easier for a new lifter to concurrently build muscle and lose fat. You don't sound like a new lifter, so the standard advice is to bulk then cut. Of course, nutrition is important and bulking doesn't require obesity.

Yeah, I'm not trying to do a dirty bulk. Mainly getting my "extra calories" from peanut butter, avocado, and other healthy fats. Plus eating a ton of meat and veggies. Thanks for the advice!
