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 put me in a huge calorie surplus and I gained weight, the problem with this approach however was that I put on a lot of unnecessary fat. Over the years I've learned that a much better approach is to eat at a slight calorie surplus made up of the correct macros (protein, carbs and fats), [...]
