3 Critical “Bulking” MISTAKES Keeping You Weak & Skinny

How To Get BIGGER, Leaner & Stronger By Packing On 4-6 lbs of Muscle EVERY Month …

By Luke Logan

Is you’re metabolism like a raging furnace?

Are you struggling to put any mass onto your skinny frame?

You are?

I too used to be the skinny ectomorph that struggled to gain mass.

I gained weight … and so can you.

For the last 4 months, I’ve been able to put on 4 lbs of muscle EVERY month … and I believe anyone can do the same if they follow the principles I’ve laid out on this website.

With that said, here are the bulking mistakes I see people making OVER … and OVER again.

1. Not eating enough calories

If you not eating a surplus of calories than your body needs to maintain its size, then you will NOT gain any weight or muscle.

You see ….

Everyone has a basal metabolic rate, which determines how many calories your body needs to maintain its size.

… and you need to eat 200-300 calories more than this to start gaining weight.

Personally, I just manipulate my carbohydrate intake when I’m bulking and I recommend you do the same.

When I’m cutting, I typically have carbohydrates with 2 of my 6 daily meals … and when I’m bulking, I’ll eat carbs at all 6 meals and sometimes have a double serving with my breakfast.

This is the EASIEST way to ensure you get the required calories. You can use a calculator to find your basal metabolic rate, but everyone’s body will be different.

You just need to listen to your body, watch the scales and measure your body fat to see how you respond.

This is the best way.

If your not gaining any mass, increase your carbohydrate intake by another 50-100 calories.

Remember though … you should be having protein at EVERY meal working on the calculation of 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight.

So if you weigh 150lbs you should be getting at least 25g of protein at EVERY meal (6 meals per day).

But understand this. Calories are not created equal and although getting enough calories is required to grow, you still need to eat the right ones …

2. Eating the wrong kind of calories

Just because your bulking, it does not mean you can eat whatever you like.

Eating pizza, ice cream and sodas is going to do nothing but leave you fat.

Eating simple, refined sugars limits your GH response, which is required to build muscle.

It also releases an excess of insulin into your bloodstream and although insulin is required to build muscle …

… too much of it, will cause your body to store fat.

You need to ensure you are eating the right kinds of calories, not only from carbohydrates, but also lean proteins and GOOD fats.

And remember to LIMIT your intake of sugar as much as possible.

The great thing about limiting sugar intake and eating complex carbohydrates is that your blood sugar levels will be stable and this reduces your cravings for junk food.

The other mistake I see people making is not being organised with meal preparation.

…and this leads to…

3. Skipping meals

After you hit the gym, your body is in an anabolic mode for 24-48 hours after breaking down muscle.

If your body does not have a steady stream of amino acids during that period, your gains will be limited.

That’s why it is vital that you feed your body with the right amount of macronutrients EVERY 2-3 hours … and ensure you get the right amount of protein, carbs and fats.

Eating 6 times per day requires a lot of discipline … and … preparation.

With the busy lifestyle that the average person leads, it’s impossible to make 6 meals every day on the spot.

Which is why they need to be prepared in bulk either at the weekends, or the night before.

And It’s also the reason that whey protein and MRP (Meal Replacement) shakes are so popular (convenience).

However, 70% of your daily calorie intake should be from SOLID food.

Personally, I never have more than 2 protein shakes in a day.

… The next step to bulking success and building muscle QUICKLY is to “tailor” your nutrition for your particular lifestyle, circumstances and goals.
