    Default Best way to bulk

    am on a standard dose of 300ml of T with Arimidex each week. I know that this is not a large dose, but it is what I have access to. I competed as a natural for 15 years after training for 10 years prior (Iím in my late 40ís). I made my best gains post competing when I started my current dosage. Soon I am able To train and eat as I like with no work or interruptions for two months. I am wondering what people would suggest for making gains in this 8 week period in terms of food and training. Currently 235lbs at around 18% BF and eating only slightly clean. Training 4 days a week with a modified dog crap style. Wanting to try and make some gains above and beyond during this rare 8 week break where I have few distractions. Thoughts on what has worked best for you? I am limited in what I have access to for gear but able to train balls to the wall. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks! 🙏

    Hello Sir,
    you already have a training plan set up so I am wondering do you need advice in the regard just with the nutrition part?
    Also what specifically you want to know as far as bulking goes?

    Sorry, was on the road. What I am wondering is what others have had success with for making gains in terms of diet and training methods. I have a rare 8 week window to train balls to the wall. I currently use what I can best describe as a combo of doggcrapp and FST7. Iím planning on upping my protein and addingtwo shake meals a day and probably adding a training day (from 4 to 5) if my body can take it.

    Just St wanted to hear what others have had success with.

    As you probably understand bodybuilding is a long term process and you can only build so much muscle in few months.

    Obviously you can put a lot of weight by eating like a maniac but how much is that going to yield "quality gains" is the next question. And probably not very reasonable from health perspective either.

    For maximum muscle gains I still wouldn't go all out with the caloric intake unless you don't care about putting a lot of other mess as well.

    As far as training goes try to train each body parts as often as your recovery abilities allows. Keep in mind that the more often you train the more careful you need to be with your overall volume.

    In case you need more in-depth guidance for training programming and nutrition hit me up, I'd be happy to help you.

    Wtf do I know? Nothing. But one man I respect is John Meadows. I would seek out his YouTube channel and his training recommendations.

    I have to second John Meadows as a resource. Iíve used his Mountaindog Training program multiple times and with phenomenal results! I will say part of the success I had was each time I started the program I was either stage lean or pretty close to it, so I was freaky anabolic out of the starting gate. I set it up for 6 days a week and I went lights-out intensity for a solid 20 weeks because Iím a sicko volume-intensity junkie.

    If youíre already doing DC and FST 7 youíll enjoy the intensity he throws in for the last few weeks. Itís a 12 week program but you can customize it any way you like. Depending on how much volume you already do, you might want to just skip Phase 1 and jump straight into Phase 2. The T-Nation website has all of Johnís articles on the program for free. Just get on the site and search him as the author.

    As far as diet, I just stopped all cardio and ate my precontest diet and grew like a weed. Done right, youíre doing so much work that you wonít need much cardio if any.

    I also used EAAs intra-workout. The brand I used 10 years ago doesnít exist anymore. For several years now Iíve been using Granite Keto Factor (Granite is John Meadowsí company btw) and I canít say enough great things about the products, especially Keto Factor.

    Hope that helps!

    Keep us posted on what program and diet you decide to follow.
