Clean Bulking in Bodybuilding:
- Non-competitive bodybuilders choose not to adopt the conventional strategy, as it often results in significant unwanted fat gain during the "bulking" phase.
- The attempt to increase muscle mass in one's body without any fat gain is called clean bulking.
- Competitive bodybuilders focus their efforts to achieve a peak performance during a brief "competition season", while most people prefer to maintain an attractive physique year-round.
- Anecdotal evidence suggests that a proper weight training & cardio program combined with a modestly hypercaloric diet with proper macronutrient balance can produce steady gains in size and strength, while avoiding significant increase in bodyfat.
