I'm not a very experienced lifter, I trained for a year but really only was educated for 4 months of it. but lately I've been doing alot of research on bulking due to the fact that generally a small guy weighting at 140 pounds and a height at 6ft. I'm aiming to to put on 40 pounds before next football season, i know its a little unrealistic but bare with me. i'm currently at 8% body fat yeah yeah i got that lean look and a nice set of abs but i lack size and strength. personally i don't care about having abs or a lean look right now i care about becoming a bigger and stronger athlete.
off of what iv seen there is dirty bulking and clean bulking on one side of "dirty bulking" I've heard of people people putting on a mass amount of muscle on and a descent amount of fat and then going and cutting the fat and others putting on mass amount of fat and little muscle even though they've been training there asses off, and when they cut they end up with less weight then when they started out with. but with "clean" i see people with similar results to the first scenario but with a much longer processes.
I've always been told to eat as much as you can and train as hard as you can to see results with weight gain, but people usually like to talk even when they don't know what there talking about. so i'm calling on my iron bothering to show the younin the ropes. if you are an experienced lifter who is educated on the subject please en-lighting me and tell me what worked and didn't work for you, for the next month ill just be getting myself back in shape coming back from a mcl tear i was at 150 pounds four months ago but shit happens. the fact its fully healed and i need to start training again and bulking the right way.
i'm guessing i can put put the ten pounds back on in a 2-3 week time my body has jumped up and down like that before. but I've never weighted over 155 and hope to change that, i'm also looking into trying Alpha Male wile bulking but that's a different subject. the point remains if yoi know how to help please leave me a message so i can get a better idea and better educate myself
