Okay going to make it as simple as possible. Competed in first bodybuilding competition recently, placed 2nd with the notes “Arms are too small, legs are too big, chest needs help”.
Stage Weight: 242
12 Weeks Out Weight: 250
I would like to bulk up considerably for the 2020 season as I will no longer to be able to compete in the Novice Category next year, and since I’m tall it’s almost impossible for me to come in under a weight category so I will have to stand with the big boys.
For the bulk, I don’t mind gaining a bit of fat, I don’t mind a longer cut but since I’m pressed for time I would like to gain the most amount of mass (but with limited fat gain if possible.)
I’ve read some articles on the site
Option A) (Bodyweight x 16) + 20% = 242 x 16 + 20% = 4646.4 Cals
Option B) Lean Weight = 4600 Cals [Was in a Table]
I’ve read the best split being 40/40/20 but I’ve never reacted extremely well to carbs and was wondering if I should stick to this or try 50 P/30 C/20 F?
Training is focused on my weaknesses and in the 6-12 rep range with more frequent chest/arm days.
