By May 23, 2014 November 12th, 2022 Podcast

Tune into episode 21 to learn how to “Bulk the Right Way”! As a perfect companion to our episode “Getting Leaner, Faster,” we discuss how to properly add lean muscle mass and minimize fat gain. Now let’s dive in!  

 Items Mentioned In This Podcast

  • How to know when you can begin a lean bulking phase
  • How to begin
  • The ideal ratio to organize your protein, carbs and fat
  • Workout structure and best supplements to use
  • Harris-Benedict formula to calculate your BMR:

Step 1:
Men – BMR =66.47+ (13.75 x W) + (5.0 x H) – (6.75 x A)
Women – BMR =665.09 + (9.56 x W) + (1.84 x H) – (4.67 x A)
W = weight in kilograms
H = height in centimeters
A = age

Step 2:
Then multiplicate by your activity level:
1.2= Sedentary (little activity, desk job)
1.3-1.4= Light exercise (3-4 days/week )
1.55-1.6=Moderate exercise (3-5 days/week, 60 minutes/session)
1.725= Active (6-7 days/week 60-90 min/session)
1.9= Extremely active individuals such as, heavy manual labor workers,
endurance/athletes on competitive sports teams.

Then you decide if you want to add or reduce your caloric intake depending on your goal.
