Bulking | Cutting | The Truth!!

  • Put the science back in strength - http://athleanx.com/x/science Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW Bulking and cutting is one of the most popular methods of adding muscle fast, but does it work the way you hope it would? In this video, I’m going to show you how you can actually build muscle and burn fat at the same time and significantly change the look of your body by doing so. I will also cover some of the potential pitfalls on the way to the perfect bulk and cut that could be undercutting your end result. To start, it helps to discuss what the theory behind bulking and cutting is for putting on muscle. That discussion needs to start with a determination of what you ultimately want to look like at the end of your bulk and cut. If your goal is to wind up with nothing but pure lean muscle gain then you will have to identify that and understand that your cut is going to have to be precise and must be able to last for the duration. In other words, you will have to cut until every bit of excess body fat that you put on is no longer there, while making sure not to compromise any of the lean muscle mass you added in the process. If on the other hand you simply want to add “size”, for lack of a better term (meaning pack on partial amounts of lean muscle and body fat) then your goals and the practicality of the process would become much simpler to adhere to. For the purposes of this video and channel however, we are assuming that the end product of your bulk and cut would be to add pure lean muscle gains without body fat hiding what you have done. With this said, I argue that this whole process does not have to be segmented into a bulking phase and a cutting phase but rather can be achieved at once (with a significant impact on how you look and feel at the end). By being hypo caloric and maintaining a positive nitrogen balance you can definitely add muscle and burn fat at the same time, albeit at a slightly slower but much more consistent and maintainable rate. When the longevity of your appearance and gains is what is paramount, the alternative of spending half the year fat and a few months comfortable enough with your physique to take off your shirt is not an option. When you bulk and cut at the same time you can walk around 365 days a year looking your best while steadily accruing lean muscle year over year. The risk of bulking and then cutting is often that the adaptation to going into a sustainable hypo caloric diet becomes daunting and as soon as it cannot be maintained, the results are lost. Many people will enter into a bulk and never fully come out of it. There are many a gym filled with guys spending hours each week on cardio trying to reverse the effects of a long ago bulk gone wrong. If instead you focused on staying slightly hypocaloric while increasing your protein intake to support positive nitrogen balance needed to keep a net protein synthesis, you would find that you could add pure lean muscle more consistently. Now, this process will be a slightly slower one than trying to force your body to grow more quickly but the end result will be more sustainable and consistent.

    I'm very confused here. I need some good suggestions. I was 28 percent bf when I started lifting weights and I have cut down to 20 percent now. But my gym trainer is advising me to cut down to 15 percent at least and then do bulk. I have been in calorie deficit for like 8 months now while my protein intake has been good. So it's basically what Jeff said here. Calorie deficit + high protein. I understand that my trainer wants me to lose fat first and then work on muscle gain. But losing more fat is making me look weak bcoz I didn't already have good muscle mass. Nor I have not built any good visible muscle in 8 months. And I'm losing a lot of mass from my shoulders and arms which is making me look smaller by the day. I'm looking weak and smaller and I'm not liking it. My main intention was to build muscle with of course low fat.

    What should I do?
    Should I keep cutting to 15 percent bf at least and then bulk? Or

    Should I start bulking now and then may be do a quick cut for some fat that I might end up gaining?

    Quite honestly I don't think body recomposition is working for me. I'd really want to pack some muscle. I'm losing the motivation now.

    What do you think about being at a caloric surplus on lifting days and caloric deficit on cardio days?

    Hi Jeff, could you do a video with an example diet (or your own), or a nutritional plan (8 weeks or so) detailing how to make sure you're in a positive nitrogen balance as you go further into a caloric deficit? Anyway man, absolutely killing it and I'm loving the videos!!

    in the wise words of bro science life: if you're not looking cut, tell them you're bulking. if you're not looking bulky, tell them you're cutting. if you're neither, then you're fucked

    I dont know what people don't understand about this channel. Jeff has said he doesn't train bodybuilders and people come here looking for bodybuilder advice and saying that anything that doesn't fit their own opinion is "beginner shit". Well yeah congrats man you right this is beginners shit. 99% of the world aren't elite bodybuilders that need to put on dozens of pounds of muscle for a show. They're regular 9-5 workers or busy small business owners trying to take care of their health. You're really gonna try to hate on that because its not you? This is high quality information for those people who don't need the unnecessary complications of macros, calorie counting energy expenditure tracking and all that shit. No regular working person with a family has the time or energy to do any of that. Unless you're a bodybuilder of course then thats your job and you have every incentive and all the time to do all of that. Every damn day fitness has a quote of something like "90% of these fitness youtubers lives don't relate to you and most of you will never look like them" which is true. So if you're here trying to hate on people for trying to encourage other regular people to take care of their health 24/7 365. Without the unnecessary things that might discourage them. You need to ask yourself why you're so self conscious about your life choices that you want to hate on people for trying to be better.
