‘Tis the season for making gains!! While you don’t have to time “bulking” with the seasons, many people prefer to bulk in the winter months.
With sweaters replacing swimsuits and so many high-calorie gatherings during the holidays, winter is a great time of year to increase your food intake and dedicate time to building as much lean muscle mass as possible.
That said, there is a right and wrong way to go about it.
The goal of bulking is to go hard in the gym and pack on as much muscle as possible without gaining excess body fat.
It’s not difficult, but doing so effectively does require a specific strategy…..
Lift Heavy + Less Cardio + Extra Sleep + Eat More + Proper Supplementation
The first three are pretty self-explanatory; it’s those last two where many people get bulking wrong. We’re here to show you how to bulk up the RIGHT way!!
Eat More Protein
Protein will always be king for muscle growth. Your muscles need protein to grow. Choking down pounds of chicken breast gets old… fast. Not to mention, your muscles need a more fast-acting protein source following a strenuous workout.
Inno Supps Clean Vegan Protein offers 24g of pea protein isolate, the most bioavailable and superior form of plant-based protein; it also contains an organic greens blend, antioxidant blend and digestive enzymes for clean whole body nutrition in every serving.
And unlike other vegan proteins on the market, Clean Vegan Protein tastes amazing and is naturally sweetened with Monk Fruit, not chemicals or artificial sugar.
Supplement With Creatine
Creatine is arguably the most research-tested and proven supplement available for strength and lean muscle gains. It is also crucial for faster recovery, which is needed when lifting heavy during a bulk.
There are many forms of creatine on the market. One of the most popular is a super-concentrated form of creatine called creatine HCI.
Inno Supps Max Strength HCl contains 2,000mg of creatine HCI, plus science-backed ingredients that amplify pumps and supercharge circulation. Max Strength HCI is the perfect supplement to add during bulking to help accelerate your muscle-building power and optimize your recovery so you can max every workout!
Amplify Your Lifts With A Pump + Endurance + Focus Formulated Pre-Workout
You must make the most of every lift during a bulking season. To achieve that, you need a quality pre-workout!
Storm Maker contains a unique blend of natural ingredients that will amplify your workouts by giving you clean, hard-hitting energy (without that horrible post-workout crash), increased blood flow for skin-tearing pumps, laser-focused mental drive for stamina and mind-muscle connection, and more strength and endurance so you can burst through plateaus and crank out reps beyond your previous limits!
If your goal with this off-season bulk is to maximize muscle gain while minimizing fat gain, make sure you’re adding Clean Vegan Protein, Max Strength HCI and Storm Maker to your supplement stack!
We hope you found this winter gains guide helpful! Happy bulking season!
