MANLY ISSUES: GET BIG WITHOUT GETTING FAT

PROBLEM # 1:  

  • Larry may not be all that muscular but he has a rockin’ set of abs. Understandably, he doesn’t want to lose them. So Lean Larry is basically always on a fat-loss diet. His calories are just way too low to support optimal muscle gains and reap the benefits of all that training.


  • Lean Larry seems to think that the only way to add big muscle is to eat so much that he adds big fat in the form of matching pairs of love handles and “moobs.” Because of this belief, he restricts his diet so much that he can’t put on even marginal amounts of muscle. He’s lean, fit, and healthy — give him credit for that — but he’s also failing to reach his goal of building bigger, stronger, more noticeable muscles.

PROBLEM # 2:

  •  Bart wears an XXL T-shirt, but like Lean Larry, he doesn’t really look like he lifts. He just looks like a fat guy with better than average traps. Sure, there’s muscle under there, but you can’t really see it.


  • Big Bart also thinks the only way to gain muscle is to overeat, so that’s what he does. He’s big and strong, but he’s also fat and unhealthy. And, since bad nutritional habits tend to be addictive, he’s seriously hooked on junk food.


“Both of these guys are stuck on the idea of a dirty bulk — eating a gross excess of calories, many from unhealthy sources, in order to gain muscle. But the dirty bulk is a bad idea, especially now that the experts know a better way to do it.”
