I know I could search the archives (and the whole internet) for this, but I am wondering what tips people have for those who either used to be chubby or are predisposed to getting chubby, who want to bulk up. Basically, I have always had a much easier time gaining muscle than loosing fat, and while I have managed to bulk from 175 to 200 without gaining much fat, I am now at 205, and it seems like the last five pounds have been pure fat (this also is probably related to my lack of sleep and shitty-ass training of late).
I suspect, that as far as genes go, I am doing better than many on this cite, as far as not putting on too much fat, and I therefore suspect that as much as I would like some tips on bulking for the chubby, others would like them even more. This (bulking for the chubby) seems like one of the major problems that bodybuilding trainers, who are working with people who want to go beyond just being trim and “healthy”, must face. Even C.T., while his “mutation” is incredibly impressive and a huge testament to his abillities as a trainer, does not seem to be able to bulk himself up to the weight he was when he started, while remaining lean. (Perhaps I have not been fullowing his progress closely enough, so please correct me if I am wrong).
