How to bulk without counting calories

One of the hardest things that people come across when it comes to weight training, is eating properly. I have already spoken on how important nutrition is, whether it is for bulking or cutting. Certain things you should try to focus on accomplishing no matter what, although there are debates on whether to be sticklers about it or not. Either way, that’s not the topic for today. Today I want to focus on eating for a bulk, but not really focusing on counting calories. The best way to eat on a bulk, without counting calories is the most logical thing; use one day out of the whole week and count them damn calories! But if you want some more suggestions instead of that obvious one, then continue reading!

Weight Lifting and Women

I just want to settle something once and for all, because it’s a huge misconception and falsehood that I am a little irritated by. I think women should know exactly what they are getting into, when it comes to weight training. They have a warped sense of what can happen once they pick up a dumbbell and I think men have it also. When it comes to weight training and women, the woman needs to know what kind of physique she wants. She’s not going to suddenly turn into a shehulk, if she starts lifting weights. I see girls avoiding weights like it’s the plague because they have a misconception yet again, on what they will look like. You will not look like me, if you’re curling 10 lb weights, or squatting in the 50s. I see them using just the bars, and doing deadlifts and so forth. Fine, that’s cool but you’re not going to get huge like a man, if you lift weights. Yet, there’s guys who think that if a woman lift weights, she’s going to only start looking like a fitness model. How naive of them to assume just because females have a lower set of testosterone surging through their body, that they wouldn’t have a physique nearly as equal to them? If you have a goal, to look muscular, nearly as much as some dudes, as a female, YOU CAN DO IT! You can also do it, without the assistance of anabolic substances. All you[…]

No room for intimidation

“Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but don’t nobody want to lift no heavy-ass weights.” – Ronnie Coleman, IFBB Mr. Olympia 8 times in a row from 1998 to 2005. I couldn’t have said it any better than him. Everyone wants to build muscle but don’t no one want to actually lift heavy to do so. You can’t expect to stay at 25lbs with your bicep curls, and expect to gain any significant mass. Not only that but compound workouts are very good for building overall mass also; military press, squats, bench press, bent over rows. All these help with overall mass gains. But, you also have to go heavy. A lot are afraid to go heavy on the bench press exercise and this is with reason. Why remain intimidated, when you could be pushing more than you’re currently lifting?

How to eat while bulking

One of the hardest things to do, for many interested in gaining muscle mass, is eating. They tell you this time and time again that the only way to gain muscle, is to eat in excess. We already went through how much you’re suppose to eat over and that’s just the easy part. Once you’re at least consuming 500 calories over your maintenance, you will gain muscle mass. Of course you have to consume your 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, and 2 to 2.5 grams of carbohydrates per pound of body weight. But you already knew this, right? 🙂 If you want to learn how to eat to bulk, I suggest you keep reading.
