So you want to get ripped 6 pack abs and build muscle too, but you’ve been told that you need to bulk and then cut to do it? It’s time to pull up a seat and get ready to hear the truth about getting abs. First, the bulking and cutting myth was originated by guys that were unable to follow a sensible eating regimen consistently enough to be ripped year round. These are the guys that tend to look fat and out of shape half the year and sport abs whenever they want to promote a product or do a photoshoot.
This video is going to expose the myth and show you that in order to get 6 pack abs and build muscle three hundred sixty five days a year you need to do just two things. First, you must be in a hypocaloric state if you are currently overweight and in need of losing weight to reveal your abs. Nutrition is and always will be the key to getting abs. Second, you need to be sure you remain in positive nitrogen balance (particularly as you decrease your calories a bit). This is needed to make sure you can still provide enough substrate necessary to support the lean muscle you have and help to build new muscle.
Protein supplements can come in incredibly handy in this process if the ones you are choosing are free of fillers, empty calories and garbage. They provide you with the protein you need without the excess calories that come from foods associated as high protein but also high fat or carb dense. Now that said, solid food nutrition absolutely must make up the major constituent of your eating plan if you want to build muscle. That said, your protein supplements can support your cause and make the task of getting enough to stay in positive nitrogen balance much more convenient.
The entire myth about bulking and cutting doesn’t just pertain to dirty bulking. In the case of dirty bulking it is complete and utter garbage. I’m also talking about clean bulking as well. There simply is no reason to have to bulk to the point of adding fat in order to add lean muscle. You can steadily add lean muscle, long beyond newbie gains (and at any age) as long as you’re providing your body with the substrate it needs to build new muscle.
