The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    How much weight increase each month?

    Morning guys - i was just wondering how much weight seems a decent amount to add each month on a clean bulk for a natural.

    Would you say that adding 1lb each week - so 4lbs per month - is a nice rate to look at for a longer but cleaner bulk?

    I plan to bulk for the next 8 of so months - so if i can gain 4lbs per month for the next 8 months = 32lbs - which i think is a decent amount.

    Just appreciate your views.

    Thanks.

    sounds perfect to me man, you can expect to add alot of LBM that way and less fat then a more traditional faster 2 lb a week bulk, in some cases, some people that have good genetics will add more LBM then others in shorter time. from what i have seen.

    Thanks Stumprrp.

    Yes - i have been training for over a year now - so i think the faster gains have probably slowed down - so i am looking more to the long term and slower and leaner gains so i can actually spend longer bulking.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I gained about 50 pounds in 10 months, and if I could do it again I probably would have shot for 40-45 in that time frame. If you overdo it, cutting isn't all that bad.

    I started my bulk last week and I'm doing 2lbs per week for the first month and than a 1 lb per week for the next few months after that!

    Ive been on a "clean bulk" since the end of football. I actually did the math earlier today before I read this and it came out to exactly 4 pounds per month.

    The more experienced you become, the slower you will have to bulk to minimize fat gain.
