Bulking refers to the practice of eating excess calories in order to build muscle. Bulking is very popular among bodybuilders. Competitors go through a bulking phase, followed by a cutting phase in order to lose excess fat and reveal newly gained muscles.
There are two main methods to bulk:
Clean bulk refers to eating enough healthy food to maintain a surplus in calories. Clean bulks are focused on nutrients that will help you grow muscle and maintain your overall health. This is a popular method for bulking that athletes can afford.
A clean bulking diet is one that combines moderate fat and moderate to high amounts of carbs and protein. In many ways, a clean bulking diet is similar to a cutting diet. You will gain weight by eating a surplus of 5-15% calories, rather than losing it.
A dirty bulk is when there is a caloric surplus of foods you don’t normally eat during a cut. Dirty bulks can be used to justify eating high-calorie foods like ice cream, cakes, and alcohol. This could have serious health consequences.
If done correctly, a dirt bulk can provide all the nutrients necessary for growth and the incentive to be more flexible with your food choices. A dirty bulk will undoubtedly result in more fat than a clean bulk.
You must provide your body with more energy (calories) to increase your weight. To provide the necessary amino acids for muscle growth, approximately 25-40% must be from protein. To promote muscle growth, you will need to use weight training or progressive overload.
Muscle hypertrophy is the result of combining energy, protein, and overload. Also known as gains. If you eat in excess calories without doing the required resistance training, then the extra calories will be stored as a fat. You should aim to reduce the amount of fat that you gain from bulking. The less fat you have, the more time you will need to cut and that is where our products comes in to help you achieve that.
