PACK ON LEAN MUSCLE
THE BULKING PROTOCOL
Packing on weight can be a serious drag. The Bulking Protocol combines calorie and carb cycling in a multiphase approach. The protocol takes your body type and type of work into account to ensure that we pack on size in the safest, most effective way possible.
PLEASE READ THIS, AND THEN RE-READ!
If you are interested in the bulk you must train hard, eat more than your “usual”, and sleep more than you thought possible. No days off. You need to commit to at least 5 days a week in the weight room, ideally 6. You need to be lifting heavy weight and smashing accessory work for 60 - 120 minutes each session. You can find this type of training in Jacked Street, which pairs great with the Bulking Protocol.
You cannot effectively pack muscle on hitting submaximal loads 3-5 days a week. You need to put in the time, and you need to feed the machine.
We know that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. This is why we’ve developed these adjustable protocols to empower your goals.
IMPORTANT: Microsoft Excel is essential to run these templates. It is not compatible with other spreadsheet software like Mac Numbers, Google Sheets, or Office Online. We also recommend using the MyFitnessPal App to setup your daily calorie and macronutrient goal.
EACH PROTOCOL INCLUDES
– An interactive spreadsheet to set your goals.
– An in-depth video walk-through to show how to set your protocol for success.
– A support ebook to guide you through all stages of the spreadsheet.
– John Welbourn’s expanded “Just Tell Me What To Eat” food guide.
