With us just getting into the beginning of bulk season I think now is the perfect time to go over how exactly to bulk up. Although it is important to lift a certain way to gain size, the most important part of bulking is your food intake. Bulking up shouldn't be confused with simply gaining weight. Bulking is the art of increasing size and muscle through a dietary process of loading calories and heavy weight training.
Increasing your calorie intake will propel you in the direction for success. However, it is important not to think all calories are the same. A 1,000 calories of fried greasy fast food and soda does not equal 1,000 calories of home prepared grilled chicken, peanut butter, and milk. The freedom to eat anything is sight might seem great but it will have consequences as excess fat is added. Making the process of bulking without getting fat more difficult than before.
As for the lifting aspect of bulking, lifting heavy is the key. So lower the reps and increase the weight used for each exercise. Also be sure to hit the large muscles first, like the quads, hamstrings, glutes, chest, back, shoulder, triceps and biceps.
