Well I’m at a crossroads then. I really love the idea of the pulse feast. What program of yours would you run with it?
Or do you have a good strategy with just a few meals where I can utilize Mag10.and Plasma on a mass gain protocol.
From your posts I get the feeling that what you are after is a combination of plenty of muscle gain AND plenty of fat loss.
Honestly this rarely happens.
I’d like to tell you that it does but in really unless you are a beginner, someone getting back to training, a genetic freak or using performance-enhancing drugs it’s not likely to happen.
Well in some people it can… mostly people who eat a crappy diet (i.e. mostly junk) and who switch to a solid diet. But even that doesn’t last forever.
Gain a lot of muscle mass while accepting a small to moderate amount of fat gain
Gain a significant amount of muscle while maintaining body fat levels or accepting a small gain in fat.
Gain some muscle while losing some fat
Lose a significant amount of fat gradually while maintaining muscle mass
Lose a lot of fat fast while accepting a small amount of muscle loss
YES there are exceptions. But I prefer to base an advice/recommendation/strategy based on the majority not on a few exceptions.
If you try to lose a lot of fat AND gain plenty of muscle at the same time you are doomed to fail and end up frustrated.
The physiological states to gain maximum muscle and to lose a lot of fat are drastically different.
So really what you should ask yourself right now is which of the 5 categories above do you belong to at the moment. That would determine which strategy you should use.
I know that changing your body is an emotional issue. You don’t like what you see, you want more muscle and you want to be leaner… and you want it NOW. But in most cases if you chases two rabbits at once you might end up empty handed.[/quote]
I would say 3 would be what I’m after. For the last 5 years I always was around 175ish because I had to make 165 for amtuer boxing. I’m done with that so I really did my first REAL bulk the last 8 months and am now around 195-200. I was always ripped so I had to get used to putting on some fat and losing definition. I still have good definition but I’d really love to bring out some more and create the illusion if being bigger. The reason pulse feast is intriguing is because I basically was eating 1-2 big meals a day but only using 6g Peptopro intra in some Gatorade. And I really LOVE your programs and techniques for training so I wanted to use one of them as well. I’ve looked at The Layer, Indigo Project, I, Bodybuilder and some other favorites are Leo Costas programs from the 90s. But then also I realize I could be missing out big time on muscle gain by not eating a typical BB style diet. So that’s why ive come to you
