  2. For me a key to getting the calories I need for a serious bulk is getting started early. I can eat none stop after 7 o'clock but i don't have a appetite first thing in the morning. So I have to make my self eat then my appetite takes off for the rest of the day.

    One of the best parts about bulking is that your strength, along with your size, increases dramatically. Really, who doesn't love it when the weights feel like nothing? One potential problem however, is that after a month or so of this, our bodies may start to break down under the unaccustomed loads. The continued strain on our connective tissue can become excessive until, ultimately, something gives.

    Our joints, rather than muscles, are particularly susceptible to injury when bulking because they seem to adapt more slowly. This is likely due to a decreased blood supply to connective tissue, resulting in a longer adaptation period. So while your muscles may be getting bigger and stronger by the week, your tendons and ligaments may be no better off than they were when you started.

    One solution to this problem is to increase rep range as your strength increases. This will help ensure that you're handling a weight that your joints and connective tissue can handle. Take for example, someone who's squatting with a 5-7 rep range and has gone from sets using 400 to sets of 420lbs.

    Rather than jumping to 440, it may serve him better to stay at 420 for a couple of weeks while his body adjusts to the higher load. In order to keep stressing the muscle, a higher rep range is used in subsequent workouts; for example, 420 for sets of 8-10.


    Even if you don't stay at the same weight, which may be overcautious for some, you should at least resist the temptation to drop reps for the sake of increasing poundage. We all want to see how much iron we can throw around, but when we're already stressing our connective tissue the last thing our body's need is a reduction in reps to increase the weight.

    To put it bluntly; if you do this, your body will not like you. If you really need to see how much your 1RM has gone up, or want to train with a 2-3 rep range when bulking, make sure that you're training this way beforeyou bulk.

    If you're bulking and not increasing the amount of weight used at the same rep range, then something is wrong and you need to figure out what it is. Otherwise, you may just fool yourself into thinking that everything is going well by dropping the reps.

    To piggy-back on this thought, a good joint support and the correct multi-vitamins can be a key ingredient to bone, joint, and tendon/ligament health. Obviously the vitamins you can get from your diet should help as well, but during these extreme times it becomes ever more important to supplement as it's just not possible to get everything you need from only whole foods.

    This thread is torture, as I've been dieting for what seems like forever.

  12. One of the most essential bulking food product is meat. ANY good whole, meat. Steak, Chicken, fish or pork. Its got all the fats and protein you need and when pair with a good grain or in a salad-you cant beat that 40/40/20 combo to put on good quality muscle.

    just today I had a whole rotisserie chicken and with a side of mixed veggies (cucumbers, squash, carrots, celery and broccoli-all raw) with a homemade spicy ranch dip made with greek yogurt. Lots of quality protien, moderate fat, which just the right amount of the right carbs to hold me over till my post work out meal!

    eat like this everyday when your on a good solid weight training program and I dont care what kind of ecto you claim to be-you will put on solid, dense, muscle

    Indeed

    Simply eating more food won’t always lead to more muscle growth. Instead it’ll add more weight but in the form of body fat.
    You might be thinking…

    “So what? I’m going to cut the fat later and it’s only on my body for a few months…”
    Here’s a brief summary of the health problems you can’t escape from bulking that results in excessive fat:
    Lee Priest Fat Off Season Shape

    First things first…
    Low insulin resistance is good. Insulin resistance is bad. Low insulin sensitivity is bad. High insulin sensitivity is good.
    Those two terms used to confuse the heck out of me! Better insulin sensitivity is also known as nutrient partioning effect which simply refers to forcing the nutrients you consume get shuttled into your muscle cells and not into your fat cells.
    Your entire nutrition program and training must be designed around shuttling ingested calories away from fat stores, and direct them into muscle. Makes sense, right?

    When you’re in caloric excess, calories can either go into muscle or fat. When dieting, calories can either be pulled out of fat or they can be pulled out of muscle. Someone with good partitioning and a high metabolic rate is easily able to pull and utilize energy from fat, and direct energy into muscle.

  14. Here's a simple tip: Match your training to your diet to maximize your results...
    High carb/calorie day - hard, heavy or long workout day, lagging body parts
    Lower carb/calorie day - lighter workout, body part that doesn't need much attention

    Also, timing is important here as well. It wouldn't do nearly as much good to eat all of your calories in the morning, then workout late in the day, and not eat much after. Timing nutrients around your workout to maximize the anabolic response of your body can lead to significant improvements in not only size but body composition.

    Here is a very overlooked point:

    I recommend a minimum of one gallon of water per day, especially if you are on a cycle of creatine. Water aids the liver and kidneys in the detoxification of poisons and the elimination of wastes from the body. Without sufficient water, we become dehydrated. Our organs, including muscle, liver and kidney do not function optimally without enough water. Optimal kidney function leaves the liver free to perform fat burning. Fluid intake increases urination; it will also decrease overall water retention. Since we do not feel thirsty until we are already in a dehydrated state, it is best to drink water with sufficient frequency to prevent thirst. Gradually work up to a gallon a day, you will reap the benefits of your efforts almost immediately. In fact, drinking water below your body temperature can actually help you to lose weight. A hydrated individual will have greater endurance to complete those high intensity hardcore workouts.

    Great tip here... easy to forget to drink when you're bulking since you're not just hungry all the time.

    . I know people do the BCAA thing in a gallon, but I know Layne has also shown how doing that also is not beneficial for MPS and is harmful due to always spiking protein levels and never allowing them to reach baseline or refractory periods before being spiked again!

    IMO if you can't drink your water without flavoring you're destined to lose your mind anyways while dieting.
