Background: I have a bad case of skinny-fatness. I have skinny arms, a thin frame, skinny legs, and a bit of a gut/back fat/flabby chest. Now this was worse a few months ago, but I went on a diet and shed around 15 pounds over the summer. But still, it’s pretty bad.
So I’m looking to bulk up to get some muscle on my frame because losing the fat first is becoming extremely frustrating, and I’m still gonna look pretty terrible after the fat is all off. But I’m very nervous about starting a mass phase because I’m an ectomorph who packs fat on easy. So here’s a bulking plan I was considering doing:
Basically I’m planning switching off with high calories/carbs days and low calories/low carb days. The high calories/carb days would be the days that I lift while the low carb/cal days would be either rest or cardio. So it would look something like this:
Monday: Low Cals/Carbs + Rest
Tuesday: High Cals/Carbs + Lifting
Wednesday:Low Cals/Carbs + Cardio
Thursday:High Cals/Carbs + Lifting
Friday:Low Cals/Carbs + Cardio
Saturday:High Cals/Carbs + Lifting
Sunday:High Cals/Carbs + Lifting
Would be this a plausible way of doing things? Perhaps going +500 maintenance on lifting days and -500 on rest/cardio days? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
