You have to eat big to get big. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM https://iamalpham.com/ AaronMarino https://aaronmarino.com/ Pete & Pedro https://peteandpedro.com/ Tiege Hanley https://www.tiege.com/and ENEMY https://enemy.com/ is NOT taking you to McDonald’s! Dirty bulking does not work. The calories are way above where they need to be to pack on muscle — you’ll get fat, unhealthy, and be lifelong chubby. To create muscle, you need to break down your muscle fiber from lifting weights and increase calories — BUT the calories need to be healthy with proper supplementation.
When you add lean muscle to a lean physique (keeping your fat in a reasonable zone), you will look a lot bigger. For example, Alpha is proportionate with a low body fat at only 150 pounds.
Alpha emphasizes that he has never used steroids — he has lived a lifestyle of health and fitness. Gains from natural ways will stay with you. Don’t do it because you see others using it — it’s about health and longevity. If you work hard, supplement, and eat right, you can look amazing. Here’s how:
Pack on Lean Massive Muscle
- Take a picture without your shirt, take your current weight, have your body fat tested, take the Denim Test
- Calculate Your Basal Metabolic Rate (‘Maintenance’) with Alpha’s calculator then change to ‘Muscle Gainz’ to assess your specific needs. Increase your daily calories by 500. Alpha demonstrates his entries and explains how to increase the calories in a healthy way such as using the Signature Series Whey Protein that he uses. He also loves the Signature Series protein bars because they are delicious, convenient, easy, and portable. A trick he uses at night is taking a casein protein (slower digesting) shake using water or almond milk. Check all of these powders and bars here Protein Powder & Bars
- After 4-weeks, repeat step #1 and be honest with how your jeans fit. If you have gained less than 5 pounds, increase by additional 500 calories per day. Now you’re up 1,000 from where you started. Repeat as needed and keep monitor your progress systematically.
- Creatine Monohydrate is the real deal, helping to increase muscle strength, stamina, and size.
