With temperatures dropping and leaves turning golden, summer is well and truly over and for many of us that means one thing… bulking season. But if you want to stay looking buff rather than bloated we’ve got 5 essential tips to keep you on track.
Eat the good kind of fat.
We’re talking peanut butter, avocados, fish, nuts i.e. the polyunsaturated and monounsaturated kind here. These types of fats are excellent for helping you bulk up and build muscle
without compromising on your health.
Eat little and often.
For those of us wanting to bulk up quickly its tempting to want to eat as much as possible all at once to see results fast, but this will cause you put on excessive fat rather than muscle. To put on steady weight and get you looking buff you want to eat regularly, up to 6 meals per day and in small quantities. This will help keep your metabolism
in check and provide your body with constant fuel. Fusion Protein makes an excellent meal replacement and helps to get your protein fix even when you’re on a busy schedule.
Ease up on the cardio.
Typically we would always recommend a combination of both weight training and high intensity cardio to help you build muscle and look shredded. However, if you’re looking to bulk up you want to minimize your cardio and double your effort on the weights, that way when you come to shredding
season you’ll have packed on a whole lot of muscle.
Increase your protein.
You need to try to pack protein
into every single one of your meals. Especially if your going hard on the weights as protein will help to both build and maintain muscle mass.
Even with all the best diets tips and workout routines we all need that little something extra, by adding supplements into your diet this will give you that extra edge and push you to the next level. We recommend Fusion Protein to be used as a meal replacement in up to 2 of your 6 meals per day and Refuel our complete BCAA and glutamine formula to help you recover faster.
