Back in November I was full swing on my bulk. So if you’ve watched my more recent videos, you know that I’m currently cutting. But before all the intermittent fasting, apple cider vinegar, fasted cardio and 1500 calorie deficit, I was Bulking.
The Bulk: A period of time when the primary goal is building muscle, gaining weight, increasing strength, or all of the above. Calorie intake is increased so a caloric surplus is present. The Cut: A period of time when the primary goal is losing fat, losing weight, getting leaner, or all of the above.
My food consumption is generally between 4000 and 4200 calories a day, cut cardio and increase the amount of weight and reps that I lift. I eat 3 large meals with snacks and protein shakes and protein bars in between.
I usually conduct my bulk workouts in a H.I.I.T. fashion since I cut out running from my daily routine.
For example; a routine would consist of a major muscle group I would like to hit (chest) and I would superset that with a secondary muscle group I would like to work (shoulders) After conducting a set of each I would rest 60 seconds before starting the next set and complete those workouts with 4 sets. Then move on to the next 2 exercises.
Check out one of my daily routines from my most recent bulk. Warning I swear a lot in this video.
