View Full Version : Bulking with minimal fat gain

10-28-2003, 01:39 PM
What tips would you offer someone wanting to bulk with the least amount of fat gain?

Currently I am neither satisfied with my muscularity nor happy with the waist line...but I would prefer to have other muscles besides abs, thus I bulk, and yet I am concerned that I will not fit in my pants soon....:(

Any advice from your experience?

eeat clean and make sure you gain around 0.5 lb a week, anymore then that and it is likely to be fat IMO.

run a search on clean bulking.

Edit: make sur you also get enough EFA, and i say you still do 2 cardio sessions a week ( i believe this helps with nutrient partitioning, sumone else will have to post about this, bradely.. studies? :) )

yes, clean bulking and cardio 2-3 times a week should help, however, fat gain is just a part of bulking, i too hate it.

A lot of people have success with a high carb, low fat, moderate protein diet. Look up "glucose economy" on google and you'll likely find some information.

A slow bulk is next up on the agenda for me. I've resolved to stay under 15% BF from here on.

What they said, clean eats and some cardio.

This is my goal too. Last bulk I gained to much, was unhappy, then lost to much muscle losing it.
My new theory is its a waste to spend so much time bulking and then cutting. Maybe even out by just staying steady. Either way I am too vain to be fat.

I totally agree with everything you said Berserker, and what the other dudes said too :)

HIIT Cardio, proper nutrition, Nutritional Timing, moderate cardio and heavy lifting. And most importantly do try to be like me and want to gain all the muscle at once.
