Firstly, amazingly useful site guys. Thanks for putting the time in and posting great articles daily!
I am wondering if I can pick your brains for some advice.
Typically I cut in the summer and do mass gain diets in the winter, just like 90% of the rest of the gym people. This year however I want to play soccer this fall/winter.
I play a forward to I need to have great cardio and be fast. After reading the article "Truth About Bulking" I've decided to switch up my routine to work out in the mornings and eat a calorie positive diet to support muscle development. I'm going to increment by 250cals so that I don't overeat myself as in past gain diets.
Gym- Compound exercises, focusing on cleans, snatches, deads, squats, box squats, bench, military, jump squats etc
Cardio- Games on Sunday and practice on Tues/Wed night
Add a good amount of quality muscle mass, stay in good cardio conditioning, and get stronger
Aside from protein and glutamine are there any supplements worth taking? I don't have much experience with Creatine but would it assist in gaining muscle but not hampering my cardio conditioning?
Body Fat- 7%
Size Ratio- Upper body dominant
I really appreciate any advice you have to offer
