just wanted to ask your opinion. i Started my bulk about 2 months ago at arounf 7% body fat and a weight of about 139. Now, 2 months in, im at % bodyfat, weight is about 151lbs. I have increased my calorie intake by 100kcal just once during the bulk, when my wight stopped increasing. is the fat gain and weight gain too fast…? am i on track to go atleast 5 months on the bulk before i need to start cutting again…? by the way, although i am gaining strength in the gym, it really sucks to see my cuts slowly fade away, specially my abs. you can still see them, but week after week, i feel like they are slowly fading..
i am taking creatine by the way. does that affect the weight gain?
The program has various advantages over other diets, which make it much easier and realistic to follow. Our program offers variation, thus, it won't be boring to follow; it doesn't promote a lifestyle that prevents you from functioning in a social context; it's based on legitimate scientific finding; it's been tested on over 100 Test Subjects; bodybuilders have been exploiting The Anabolic Amplifier Effect for 50 to 60 years now; the "perfect" macronutrient ratios are not as important as the total goal calories in each phase (far easier to tackle); and the program allows you to make changes within the 21-day framework of the diet and training in terms of your individual ambitions and goals.
Speaking of overtraining, lets talk about the other kind of rest, the time between workouts. How much rest you need between workouts depends a lot on your experience level. Beginners can workout every day or every other day where as an advanced bodybuilder would have to wait 3-6 days between workouts. Please note that when I say that an advanced bodybuilder needs 3-6 days between workouts, I mean for a particular bodypart. For example if you are advanced and workout chest on Monday then you shouldnt workout chest again till Thursday at the earliest. Its fine to do legs on Tuesday, back on Wednesday though!
