In the beginning of my fitness journey I thought that the quicker I could gain weight, the more muscle I would build. But unfortunately, it didn't really turn out that way. In fact, most of the weight I gained was fat and not muscle. The bottom line is that how fast you choose to gain weight dictates how much of the weight you gain on a bulk is fat or [...]

This should then be cycled overtime. But, is this type of "yoyo" dieting really necessary? And more importantly, will it lead to a quicker [...]
