Alright, i want to start bulking up.
I have a 36 inch vertical leap
i run a 4.5 40 yard dash
Im 6’1 205
I want to get around 225, but if i start bulking will i lose my athleticism, and thats something i’ve worked so very hard on and i dont want to lose it.
I’ve read dave’s bulking tips, but im just concerned about my gaining this weight and my athletic ability.[/quote]
Adding quality muscle mass does not inherently suggest loss of athleticism.
if you want to add 20 lbs in a month expect a good portion of that to be fat.
What are your goals and why is your vert. and 40 times applicable.
It would stand to reason that as you get heavier it will be increasingly difficult to keep these times and heights, UNLESS, you train very specifically for this.
Maybe need a little more info to fully answer your question vs. goals.
