Hi Andy! Wondering if the 1:1 gain for muscle:fat is reasonable to expect for women? My thoughts are that it’s probably less with the lower levels of T, but not sure how much to expect.

I know women are outside your coaching realm, but wanted your trusted input!
Thanks so much!

So useful andy thanks! Your bulking article (plural now) have been so informative for me over the last month or so of transitioning to a bulk.

Hey Andy, do you have any guidelines on how tape measurements should change over time when bulking? Should I even be doing measurements while bulking? I know this is a big factor in adjusting when cutting, but I haven’t seen you talk about it when bulking.

I’ve been bulking for 11 weeks and have seen my weight go up, although not as fast as I was aiming for. My chest, arm, and leg measurements are going up too, though pretty gradually. Of course all of this is complicated by not having access to a gym because of COVID-19, so I’m trying to make do using banded squats and DLs, pushups, jumps, sprints, and various bodyweight squats.

Thanks!

Hi Andy,

Due to my work schedule every few weeks or so I have to put most of my training sessions back to back (training days: M, F, S, S). I figure it’s not ideal, but better than missing sessions. At the moment I keep my calories constant (i.e same daily surplus across the week) for that run of three rest days in the middle of the week, but it feels counter-intuitive to be in a hypercaloric state when Monday’s training stimulus must have ‘worn-off’ by Thursday. Would it be best to continue as I am and keep calories constant, or would there be a benefit (i.e. less fat gain) dropping calories slightly on, say, Wednesday and Thursday.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Andy – you mentioned in one of your emails that you’re going to be releasing an updated Bulking Guide on ‘The Last Shred’ book. Any update on when that will be out? I just moved from Shredding down to 150lbs at 12% BF (5’7”) and moved to the ‘bulk’ mode for 3 month bulk and 1 month shred so 3 cycles in 2020.
