A byproduct of seriously bulking up is usually a gain in bodyfat. If you’re trying to pack on pounds of muscle, you eat more and additional pounds of bodyfat to accompany your muscle is usually tough to avoid. However, there are a number of things you could do to minimize the fat increase by focusing as much on when you are eating as what you are eating.
Bulking up: It’s a scary thought for many guys at the gym because it seems like there’s always a string attached. Everyone wants to add lean mass, but—and it’s a big but—a lot of us don’t like the idea of gaining bodyfat, even as little as a couple of pounds, which is the norm with most mass-gaining meal plans. Seriously, what’s the point of gaining 20 or 30 pounds if a good portion of that is fat? If you can’t see the muscle you’ve added, is it even worth having? In this case, we say no, which is why we provide you with the tools you need to add muscle while maintaining, not increasing, your current level of bodyfat.
