A lot of guys fail at bulking when it comes to their bulking cycles, simply because they don't strategize it the proper way. They just think they could just eat every food they have in sight, as much as, say 5000, 6000 calories, without actually planning everything out.

What's going on brother? My name is Kai, and if you have any questions for me, the best way to reach me is the link to my email.

You could find that link in description, you click on that link, it takes you to a site, you put in your name, your email, any questions you have for me, it's gonna go directly to my proton mail. When it comes to bulking up, a lot of people honestly believe that's the easier route between cutting or bulking. From my perspective man, having to eat a lot of food, to where we actually trying to build new muscle tissue as much as I can.

That is actually the harder route, because you got to think about it, when you're cutting, you pretty much have to meet your macros, but at the same exact time, I'm going to be in a caloric deficit, that's pretty much it. So pretty much eating less food. When it comes to having a bulking cycle, or in a bulking diet, I actually have to go out of my way to eat more food. So from my perspective man, bulking is actually way harder than any of the cycles that I'm looking to do.

Now, to make it easier, because obviously, getting the gains, doing say test, NPP and EQ, it's going to make it a little bit easier when it comes to actually getting jacked and looking good. Now, when it comes to this brisket by the way, I usually get my brisket nice and lean, because I don't want extra fatty in it, even though the fat is not bad when we are bulking up, but my God dude, this place is frickin amazing when it comes to their barbecue.

So in terms of going from say, a cruise or a TRT and going to a blasting cycle, especially when it comes to bulking, there's a lot of strategies to do. One of the main one is this, I can't go from say, maintenance of calories, 2500, 3000 calories, to eating 5000, 6000 calories all within one day. That doesn't happen, I have to slowly build up to 5000, 6000 calories a day. Simply when it comes to hitting my macros. 

For example, if I've never done 250 grams of protein a day, I got to slowly build up to it. There's no way I'm able to do that in a comfortable manner. Now, can I technically do that, really hard will myself into eating 250 grams of protein a day, 6000 calories a day?

When it comes to the actual image of it, the aesthetics of it, even though it's a bulking agent, it doesn't aromatize, but I'll get to that in a minute when it comes to the post cycle therapy stuff, it doesn't aromatize.

Sure. But if I were to attack it blindly, without strategizing it, I'm gonna burn myself out, I'm gonna find myself hating food, hating having to have my next meal again.

complaining about oh my God, I have to eat another meal here and there every two and a half hours or so. So when it comes to the strategy behind it, I'm going to increase my caloric intake in a slow way, I cannot go from 2500, 3000 calories to 6000 all within one day. I'm going to slowly increase it week per week, a 1000 calories every single week. Because again, can I technically go from 3000 to 6000 all within one day?

Sure I can. But that's going to be one of the fastest burnout rate ever, because I've done that before and I hated food ever since after that. Now the other strategy of it is this, when it comes to the types of food that we're going to be eating. I usually reserve, now obviously I'm not following up my bulking strategy right now, but the type of foods I am gonna eat throughout the day will be lighter types of protein. 

I'm gonna have my white meat, as in my ground turkey, my tilapia, my salmon, easily digestible proteins to where I'm going to save the harder digestible proteins for later on in the evening. My steak, my bison, my chicken as well, because here's the thing, as I'm going throughout the day, I'm trying to fit more meals in, if it's harder to digest, how am I going to have another meal two and a half hours later. 

If that last meal I had is still sitting within my stomach. We got to strategize this out. We can't just think ok, let me just have another thing with chicken, let me have another chicken breast, let me have this and that. Can that work for some people? Sure. But there's just much easier ways to do this. Like imagine, check this out, say if I just have eggs in my first and second breakfast.

That's easier to digest than say having a thing of like chicken breast and broccoli, that is so much harder to digest because it's heavy, it's sitting in my stomach, so the type of protein I'm gonna have to meet my protein macros, I'm gonna have the lighter ones at the end of my day, compared to say later on in the evening. And then when I'm done with my day, right? 

I'm not at work, I don't have any meetings, I'm not the office, I'm not doing a lot of stuff to where I can only just need to concentrate on the meals that I'm having, then I'm gonna have my bison, then I'm gonna have my steak, then I am gonna have my ribeye, because it doesn't matter if it's sitting in my stomach, I'm not going anywhere. My only mission, my only task for that evening is to have that meat into my stomach. 

Another strategy that I do when it comes to being on a bulking cycle, your typical test, NPP, EQ, because that's pretty much the bread and butter when it comes to say, a bulking cycle, right? The other thing that I do when I'm done eating, especially later on the evenings, or lunchtime, I go on a very quick, very light cardio, pretty much what I would call a list cardio, like light intensity type of cardio.

Now, I'm not doing that for the sake of burning fat, that'd be stupid thing to do, because it's not going to do anything at all. The reason why I would walk after a meal - because it speeds up my metabolism. So that way, I'm gonna be more hungry again for my next meal after that. If you could walk at least once every single day, 15, 20 minutes, that's actually gonna help you out when it comes to speeding up your metabolism as well to fit more meals in. I had to do this a long time ago, but now I'm able to fit in more food. 

I'm going to do what I need to do, right? There isn't going to be any excuses either, because I hear a lot of guys saying, you know, I'm eating so much, I'm eating everything in sight. It doesn't matter if you're eating everything in sight. Are you actually hitting your caloric intake you need to do? Are you actually hitting the protein macros that you need to hit? So it doesn't matter what a lot is for your perspective, it's all a matter of numbers. That is it. Am I actually hitting 6500 calories every single day? 

Am I actually hitting 250 grams of protein every single day? Because that's what it comes down to, anything else is just excuses. And I get it man, it sucks, I get it, it's hard, you're sitting there, I can't finish another meal. I've gotten to the point of desperation where I tried blending up my meal. I literally put water into a blender with my tilapia and rice and I tried to drink that because I was that desperate.

It was late at night, I didn't want to eat anymore, but that's what I have to do. Other strategies, wake up at four o'clock in the morning, have a meal there, wake up at two o'clock in the morning, have my protein shake there. There's so many strategies out there that it's practically impossible to not hit my caloric intake or my protein macros. The only reason why I wouldn't be able to hit it, because I'm just making excuses.

The other thing that I do want to address is the top of compounds that I'm going to be on. My strategy of test, NPP and EQ when I'm doing that type of bulking cycle, it comes with a benefit that for some odd reason some guys see it as a negative. Anytime I do a test, NPP and EQ cycle, I'm going to be a lot more hungry. My appetite is going to surge like crazy. 

Some guys are thinking, oh my God, I'm eating too much, is there any way I can suppress my appetite? Are you kidding me? You don't want to suppress your appetite, you need that appetite surge in order for me to hit my macros, and my caloric intake. For the guys who are complaining about having a surge of appetite, simply because they have no discipline sticking within their diet.

Those are the only guys who complain about the huge appetite surge that they would get on a bulking cycle, because it doesn't make sense. I mean, why would I want to suppress my appetite by taking an appetite suppressant, if I'm trying to bulk up? And even on a cutting cycle, say I were to add, I do a cycle of test, Tren, EQ. The EQ is going to make me eat more, it's going to want to make me eat more. 

Even though I'm going on a cutting cycle, I wouldn't want to suppress that. Why would I want to suppress that? To make it harder for me to eat my 250 grams of protein a day? No, that is the terrible wrong way to do it. And again, the only people who complain about their appetites going out of control are the guys who have no discipline sticking within a diet that they need to do, because I see that as a huge benefit. 

Are you kidding me? A compound that is gonna want to make the eat more, that is a huge benefit more than anything else. The last curveball that I'm gonna throw you at this is this, right, because anytime on a bulking cycle, some guys are really prone when it comes to getting night sweats. It doesn't just happen with Tren by the way, it could happen to a simple testosterone cycle, especially on a bulking one.

If I am prone to night sweats, then that would mean I need to cut out my carbs four, five hours before that. So that means I need to wake up a lot earlier to take in most of my calories, so that way I need to avoid having that night sweat before I go to bed about four or five hours beforehand. So during this entire time, when I'm bulking up, I'm eating a lot of calories throughout my bulking cycle. 

If I need to wake up earlier to avoid the night sweats because I need to cut out the carbs about five hours before I go to sleep, then I need to do that as well. Do you see now how difficult a bulking cycle is, especially when I have to time my meals, meet my macros, meet my intake of my calories and everything like that, and then also timing of it as well. Yeah, it's much more difficult. 

But again, the guys who actually get this done are the guys who get rewarded for it, because either we're getting it done, I'm hitting my calories, I'm hitting my macros or again, some of these excuses are justifiable. I have work, I have my meetings, I was too busy, this, that. I get it. That's the reason why man, it all ties into it. When I go on a cruise I completely disconnect because once I go on a cycle.

I'm going to put in as much effort to a 100% so I could get that cycle done the right way. Not let me dabble around with a little bit of Deca on my cruise so that I could have a half-assed job on blast cycle. No, I use my cruise as a downtime, to where once I'm on a bulking cycle, I'm going to go a 100%, I'm going to eat everything in sight. Here's that thing too, lastly, ok, some guys are going to get a little bit of fat retention from bulking cycle, but who cares? 

That's part of it, that's part of bulking. Do I really need to worry about fat accumulation when I have Tren and T3 waiting for me when I'm done with the bulking cycle? No. I need to fully dedicate, I can't go mid cycle, oh my God, I'm starting to gain a little bit of fat, let me slow down. There is no such thing as slowing down when it comes to a bulking cycle. 100% pure bulking cycle needs to happen. Here I go, 5, 4, 3, 2. 

One more thing I do want to address, I'm sure you've heard a lot of guys on, you know, either in forums or YouTube channels talking about you don't need to bulk, you just need to do a decent cycle. Those guys are already big. Those guys have already done multiple cycles to where they could afford to not do a bulking cycles, because I've heard this before, what's the point of doing a bulking cycle when you have to cut?

Ok, what if that person is 160 pounds? Does that mean he doesn't need to bulk? No, it depends on our situation. So from my personal belief, a bulking cycle to where we are eating everything actually needs to happen. in order for me to hit my goals a lot faster. So this whole notion thing of there's no need to do a bulking cycle is just BS.

Of course unless I want to take my sweet ass time getting to 220 or 225, then sure maybe. But again, my philosophy of this lifestyle cycling is a 100% pure dedication or not. We either commit to it or we don't. That's how we view any type of blasting cycle. I need to 100% commit to it. 

But anyways boys, that's my personal strategies when it comes to bulking cycles. I know right now, a lot of guys are jumping on to test, NPP, EQ, Anadrol, all that fun stuff to bulk up. This is probably one of the best ways to approach it mentally as well when it comes to any bulking cycle. Anyways, email right in the description. Other than that boys, Kai here, out. Take care.
