Trying to bulk up?

Want to go from this..
to this...?






Bulking up isn't something that happens over night, you need to plan, deliver, and keep going. Consistency is the key. You can't train for a week give up then start again a few weeks after and expect to get results.

To Bulk up you need to put on weight by upping your calorie intake by at least 500 calories per day, you need to be eating the correct types of food, e.g proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Rather than eating 3 meals a day, try 5.

Along with your new diet you will need a new training programme consisting of effective exercises and adaquate resting times. Do not fall into the habit of,
Monday: chest
Tuesday: back
Wedsnesday: triceps
Thursday: biceps
Friday legs
Saterday: Abs

Training this many times a week is absolutly fine but you are only working each muscle group once in that week when preferably you sholud be working each 2-3 times in a week.

Try
Monday: Chest, Triceps, Abs
Tuesday : Back, Biceps, Legs , Shoulders
Weds: Cardio
Thursday: Chest, Triceps, Abs
Friday: Back, Biceps, Legs, Shoulders
Saturday: Cardio

Or
Monday: Chest, Triceps, Abs
Tuesday: Back, Biceps, Legs, Shoulders
Wednesday: Chest, Triceps, Abs
Thursday: Chest, Triceps, Abs
Friday: Back, Biceps, legs, Shoulders
Saturday: Chest, Triceps, Abs

Both of these programmes provide your muscles with enough time to rest.

Alongside your new diet and new programme try out supplements such as Maximuscle Progain
