Piling on mass...

  1. Piling on mass...


    Weight 180. Height 5-11. Age 34. Lost about 30 pounds of body fat. Much more leaner but lost muscle bulk. Train 3-4 x weekly. Different training systems. Compound movements. Split sets etc. looking to pile on more muscle mass. Any tips ?? Increased protein intake ...?! Increased carbs perhaps ?? Have a healthy diet. Eating is balanced and drink water regularly. Blood sugars usually always stable. Minimal sugar and fat intake. High fibre. Do hit training ... Perhaps cut down on it ??


  2. what do your macros look like?

    you're low fat AND low carb??

  3. Minimal fat intake is a mistake since hormones all are synthesized from fats/cholesterol.

    This is wrong , while on a bulk you should look to at least .5g of fat per LB of BW , since the calorical needs go up on a bulk and so do hormone regulation by the body. Furthermore fats not only aid in hormone production and synthesis but in recovery and joint help. High fat intake is ideal while on a bulk the reason why they are cut down a bit on a cut is because of their vast calorical weight which is 1g of fat= 9kCals , hence its easier to make it a HIGH Protein diet (shooting for about 2g of protein per LB of BW) and cutting carbs to a minimum which is below 100 but not to low below 50, thus its easier to keep macros in check and not have spillover calories when you are on a plan that looks to have a caloric deficit.

    your post makes no sense regarding what i said.i said that if you eat more fats you wont have more testosterone being produced.what you said is correct about caloric goals and dieting etc.but it doesnt matter if your cutting or bulking,there is a certain threshold whereby only a certain amount of fats are needed to produce the sex hormones.layne norton has debunked it

    It seems you either didn't properly write your first post , or simply meant something else and I did not understand it. What I understood from your first post was that ONLY a little amount of fats a day was needed MERELY because of the hormonal entertainment of the body , thought you meant that you did NOT need more fats for any other porpoise.
