Probably the biggest fear with regards to “bulking” is that you will put on extra fat along with the extra muscle.
It is a legitimate problem and, in the minds of many, the fat gains are a necessary evil. However, more and more bodybuilders are “cycling” their diets in an effort to not only reduce the fat gains but increase the muscle gains.
A cycled diet is the base for Vince Delmonte and Lee Haywards’ “21 Day Fast Muscle Building” program.
For the most part, the program seems to be written by Hayward with Delmonte providing some oomph with his personal results while training on the program.
The approach the program advocates isn’t complicated. It is actually a pretty simple cycled diet (different calorie and nutrient intakes) over a three week period. And then you repeat.
Simple is good. In my experience, simple beats complex more often than not (maybe that makes me a simpleton?).
The main ebook with this program is a decent read. After reading it, however, I struggled to come up with a decent list of things I’d learned. It seemed to me that the main tenets of the entire program could be adequately summed up in a short article.
All the extra words seemed to be a bit fluffy and forced to get it to a respectable length. There was a lot of general theory on why this is an effective mass gain plan. And then some stuff on why some trainers succeed when others don’t. None of it jumped out at me.
Don’t get me wrong, I do believe in the approach presented in 21 Days Fast Mass Building. I’ve experienced good results with very similar approaches. I also have a lot of respect for both Hayward and Delmonte.
I’m just not sure that there is enough here to call it a program by itself. I’m not sure that the basic approach is supported by enough solid guidance on the critical details that can mean the difference between average and great results.
And I’m not sure the basic concept presented is unique enough or strong enough to stand on its own (in terms of value).
The workout section is a collection of routines designed for various goals (mass gain, fitness model, etc.). I didn’t really get much from it. It just seemed to be some routines thrown together without any real direction.
The passion and detail that both authors display in what I feel to be there signature offerings, Delmonte’s “NoNonsense Muscle Building” and Hayward’s “Blast Your Biceps”, seems to be missing.
Maybe that got lost in the collaboration?
It should be noted that I didn’t have access to the video content that is now being offered with the program. Both authors really do well on video and I’m sure there is some added value there.
This program does cover a great approach to mass gain. It just doesn’t “detail” that great approach to mass gain. And, for that reason, I was disappointed.
