Episode 032: The Lean, Clean Bulk


Episode 032: The Lean, Clean Bulk

Are you wanting to grow muscle and gain some lean mass?

I hear this request a lot from my younger male clients who are looking to improve their performance and put on some size. However, I also hear this from older clients who are just looking to be strong in their later years. Losing lean mass is inevitable as we get older but there are ways to train that will help you build muscle back.

This is something I’ve been personally working on lately. I’ve learned so much through my own experience as well through research and working with various coaches and colleagues. There are ways to put on muscle healthily and that is what I want to share in this episode.

If you’re looking to put on weight specifically through muscle without gaining fat in the process, you’ll want to do what I call a “lean, clean bulk.” Tune into this episode to learn the strategies for how to do this.
