    week 1: 135
    week 2: 170
    week 3: 200
    week 4: 225
    week 5: 240
    week 6: 245

    then repeat the cycle this time you would do something like
    week 1: 145
    week 2: 180
    week 3: 210
    week 4: 235
    week 5: 250
    week 6: 255

    etc etc etc

    This has always worked for me and kept me maintaining consistant progress

    what is the rep range you working in the beginning weeks?
    something like that? also are you doing multiple sets or is that your only working set?

    week1: 10
    week2: 8
    week3: 6
    week4: 4
    weel5: 2
    weel6: 1

    • Hey Layne, I was wondering when you are bulking do you eat carbs with every meal. I usually have breakfast, train 90 minutes later, have a shake with whey and waximaize postworkout, eat a whole food meal an hour later and then still eat 3 or 4 more times throughout the day. Would you suggest having carbs with every one of those meals and even the shake right before bed or would you say to cut them out of the last 1-2 meals when I am just basically just sitting around on the computer.
      Thanks for your time!

          nope rep range stays the same. i know it seems dumb to do that light of weight to start but trust me... powerlifters use this with GREAT success. you cannot constantly train to failure; you will plateau quickly

            i have the majority of my carbs within the 8 hours pre/post workout but i still have carbs at every meal. no need to taper carbs either. nothing about night time changes the laws of thermodynamics

                Layne,

                I've heard you say this before. I agree that if you do evening training or cardio (HIIT esp) you need to replenish the glycogen with some carbs. My question is though if you do no training in the evening, wouldn't you want to minimize the carbs (veggies at best)? My thoughts are to keep insulin levels low during this time period. Granted, if I worked out in the evening I would take in carbs up until bedtime. This is in the cutting phase verses the bulk phase. Bulk phase, carbs all day baby!

                Thanks for your time and please let me know your thoughts!

                  • I agree with Dedicate92, however it is difficult to decipher between no carbs after 5 P.M. and just lower total daily carbs. I definately feel that bodyfat gets drastically reduced when I eliminate late day carbs. This is totally anecdotal, not based on science.

                          yes but by that same token if you train at night, i would minimize carbs earlier in the day... it has nothing to do with the time of day.

                              What about if you train first thing in the morning? should you have carbs the night before??
