The main purpose of bodybuilding for most guys is to gain muscular bodyweight. However, during the process of bulking up and trying to build muscle one common problem that often comes up is guys end up gaining too much bodyfat in the process.
When you get fat from bulking it’s usually because you are trying to gain weight too quickly by eating as much food as you can slam into your stomach and doing as little activity as possible, with the exception of your weight training workouts.
But a better approach for “clean bulking” is to treat your bulking program with the same mentality that you would a fat loss cutting program, but the only difference is that you’re going to be in a slight caloric surplus for growth.
When people cut for fat loss, especially competitive bodybuilders, they are very meticulous with following a strict regime of training, nutrition, and lifestyle. They are consistent with their workouts, consistent with their cardio, and they are eating their preplanned meals like clock work. And that’s why among all dieters – competitive bodybuilders are by far the most successful in getting results.
If you take that same approach to your bulking program you can make lean muscle gains and keep the bodyfat gains to a minimum. So pre plan your meals in advance and stick to a strict eating schedule, no more of this “see food eat food” dirty bulking.
Keep consistent with your weight training workouts and include cardio as part of your bulking program. One of the biggest mistakes that bodybuilders make is avoiding cardio while bulking.
But doing moderate cardio can help you make leaner gains and speed up your recovery from weight training. Cardio will make you feel better, you’ll have more energy, and you’ll be a lot healthier overall as well.
