Dirty Bulking WARNING: I WILL NEVER DIRTY BULK AGAIN (Bear Mode Isn’t Worth It) 2019


hey there my name is Anthony Romano and in this video I’m gonna tell you why you absolutely should not dirty bulk or do any bulking or muscle building methods that allow you to go crazy and I’ll explain why with my own experience after a romancer [Music] so I’ve dirty bulked in the past I’ve had friends who dirty bald I’ve helped people who have dirty bulked and who have clean bulked and my own personal experience isn’t that well it’s exactly what you’d expect with the dirty bulk actually but this one you why you shouldn’t dirty bulk beyond just my own experience so what is dirty bulk dirty bulk is eating any calories no restrictions whatever you want so that you can jam-packed your calories high along with getting the appropriate protein and training so that you can build as much muscle as you possibly can at the same time it’s comes with this acceptance of the fact that you’re gonna add fat that’s what I call it bear mode like preparing for hibernation type things so what is the alternative to dirty dirty bulking well it could be clean bulking or any sort of semi any sort of space between dirty and clean and a lot of people have this conception of clean bulking that it’s you know brown rice chicken breast and salad all day long and that’s what you eat to hit a thousand calorie surplus right first thing I’m gonna say is that clean eating isn’t what you think it is but that doesn’t necessarily mean that a clean bulk is going to be more effective so right away when it comes to effectiveness even if you have the cleanest bulk by the definitions I’m about to explain compared to a dirty bulk there’s always this calculation in your head where you’re trying to say okay if I add an extra 10 pounds of fat I need a little bit more time to cut so that I can lose that extra 10 pounds right there’s always that calculus that you’re going through where you’re basically considering the ratio of fat gained to the amount of time you have to lose that fat so it’s basically the fat loss ability to fat gain potential calculation here so of course the premise with that’s implied with clean bulking is that you’re not going to add as much fat right now how do you do that well what clean eating is going to do is not going to come from brown rice exactly from Whole Grains it’s not going to come from all the stuff that people commonly associate with the body build their bulk so one of the things that I preached for in my page is I do many types of bulking methods I do Kido bulking I do carb bulking at times in the past and I help people with any method they choose but when it comes to a clean bulk what’s gonna be important here is that you’re not jacking the calories up too high because I always talk about insulin sensitivity and essentially how effective your body is going to be at using insulin this is key for muscle building as well and of course there are different areas in your body that are more sensitive to insulin the point is when you’re jacking your calories up to 5,000 calories a day and you have 700 grams of carbs in there I don’t know if the math adds up on that but you know when you have that high of an amount of carb in that high of an amount of calories your insulin sensitivity is going to drop that is just a fact you can look it up that’s the dynamic of insulin if somebody were to eat that much with that much sugar they would absolutely gain more fat and that would be partly a result of how resistant they are to insulin so now how many people know that the flip side of the coin of insulin sensitivity is that it helps you build muscle more effectively right because if you’re less sensitive to insulin what’s going to happen is you’re gonna be more likely to put on fat every time you eat carbs or a certain amount of calories that are just going to trigger a higher insulin response so clean eating doesn’t necessarily have to be brown rice it doesn’t necessarily have to be any sort of whole-grain if you’re choosing to include carbs of course because when you have these brown or whole-grain sources of wheat what’s going to happen is it’s filled with a protein called wheat germ agglutinin so typically the more whole-grain a product is the more lectin content it’s going to have so lectins basically will make it harder for your body to digest because their plant proteins some of them are actually defense mechanisms from the plant so that example seeds can pass through your digestion other things like that because plants want to procreate as well and this is commonly found in grains it can be found in certain clean vegetables because some people will say just eat chicken or rice all day that’s the typical bodybuilder diet meanwhile if we look back to the 70s and 80s and the golden era of bulking methods even beyond that 60s and 50s all the bodybuilders never seem to go into this bear mode you know where they’re adding fat just as much as they’re adding muscle they actually seem to be very lean and this will tie into a lot of the keto bulking videos I’ve made because news you know spoiler alert the bulking methods of those older generation of bodybuilders had a higher emphasis on fat and protein intake rather than carb intake there weren’t any the golden era guys weren’t jamming and extra five bowls of oatmeal every day what they were prioritizing was clean fats and clean proteins and then strategically maybe they throw in a carb source they actually were more afraid of carbs than people are now because they thought that it would make them fat for a lot of these guys at least so they would pack on the fat calories and the protein calories but of course from appropriate sources what do I mean by appropriate sources clean healthily raised animal products rather than you know Walmart dozen eggs you know I’m saying so they would have cleaner healthier animal sources for their animal sourced foods and at the same time their vegetables probably would have been less exposed to pesticides and all the sort but mainly they were focusing on the macro that everybody ignores when they’re clean bulking which is basically fat and a lot of people focus on the carp macronutrient when they’re dirty bulking so if you’re trying to bulk don’t focus on the carbs necessarily because again not all calories are the same that’s another premise I want to break here that’s another belief I want to destroy here for you not all calories are the same now people say there’s studies where you have people with different macro ratios and calories were the determiner of fat loss right that is true calories are the primary determiner of fat loss but we know that example protein has a higher metabolic load with it basically you have to increase your body temperature more to digest protein it’s the most thermogenic of all the proteins or of all the macronutrients father so theoretically if you were to have somebody who just ate protein all day long at 2,000 calories and you had somebody who ate a mix of macros at 2,000 calories I mean even though the person who ate protein all day would probably be taxing certain organs in their body that person should theoretically be in a greater calorie deficit as a result of eating the same amount of calories so of course you can google these things I’m just synthesizing the principles and mechanisms from all the books that I’ve read in studies that I’ve consulted so basically not all calories are the same and many of you know about the thermogenic effect of protein and if you think about it it makes logical sense so if we know that not all calories are the same that should mean that there’s not a linear relationship while that could imply there’s not a linear relationship with calories and size gained right and again spoiler alert there isn’t a linear relationship between muscle mass built and count total calorie intake there are plenty of studies out there where you could look up how people at an extra 2,000 calorie surplus didn’t gain significantly more muscle than people who had just the 1000 calorie surplus but what they would gain would be more fat and this draws us back to insulin sensitivity again because when you have a greater insulin sensitivity meaning that your body is more sensitive to insulin because you’re not Jam jamming your throat filled with sugar all day and excessive calories so when you’re more sensitive to insulin your body will be better at making lean gains rather than fatty gains and the higher your calories go there’s going to be a drop in the anticipated muscle gain because there’s going to be a disproportionately larger amount of fat gained rather than simply more calories equals more muscle and at that point there’s going to be a certain this means that a certain point of Calvary increase you’re going to hit a point where the returns start to diminish you’re going to hit a point where the fat gain potential is so much greater than the muscle gain potential that it’s actually going to ruin you for your cut now that’s a common concern we have with the cut as I said before the calculation between how much fat can I lose with the amount of time and how much muscle can I gain but realistically unless you’re somebody who’s just completely yoked already and you just need to force calories that is the only exception but you’re probably going to be just as responsive at that point to any sort of bulking method because you’ve probably added most of the muscle mass your genetic potential allows for at that point last thing I got to say which is actually very very complex and you’re gonna want to say and hear it because it requires a lot of breaking down is the mTOR pathway in your body so mTOR is the master of muscle building pathway in your body and in order to stimulate it you need a certain amount of insulin and leucine is the only protein that’s capable of stimulating em toward so what this means is calories is not necessarily the stimulator of the main muscle building pathway in your body maybe indirectly the insulin response that a certain amount of calories will create can stimulate mTOR perhaps but this means that you simply need an effective response of insulin right going back to the insulin sensitivity which your body can get that effective instant response from protein not necessarily just all the sugar in the world or all the calories in the world but you need an appropriate amount of insulin and appropriate mount of leucine or proteins in general but lucy and comes with an insulin response at the same time so basically you need an appropriate amount of protein and appropriate amount of calories to trigger the appropriate insulin response in the right quantity and Tour itself can also be influenced by fasting for example so if you were to fast the one meal a day a lot of people anecdotally will claim that they gained more muscle that way it checks out logically because what’s going to happen is you’re gonna not be hitting the mTOR button all day long right if you’re eating five meals a day your insulin and leucine or whatever protein content you’re taking are gonna be pressing the mTOR button right and your body’s going to be getting so used to have in that pathway activated that it’s going to be less sensitive to it this is how it is for a lot of functions in the body they again sensitivity if you aren’t you know stimulating them all the time so with mTOR it’s almost like this stretching expansion that when you’re fasting all day long and you’re not activating mTOR right because there’s no calories coming in you’re going to create a larger mTOR response with the same amount of insulin and protein right this is common with the research on my so does that necessarily mean you have to fast every day to get better mTOR responses not necessarily but it just means that mTOR is the key here not simply you know jack up the calories jack up the carbs and protein the only requirement to build muscle is adequate training stimulus and protein and decent amount of energy because at a certain point your body’s not going to prioritize looking aesthetic as hell but it’s going to prioritize whether or not your livers functioning so training is ultimately the key here we know that calories matter we know that you need an adequate amount of protein we know that carbs can be strategically used if you choose to but getting a healthy amount of fats which are going to be key for you know cholesterol production which is the precursor to any hormone in your body which ideally will be the precursor to testosterone in this case if you’re trying to build muscle whether you’re a man or a woman and overall it will prevent you from building more fat than muscle so hopefully this video has taught you that not all calories are the same and I’ll even throw in the little bit here that not all carbs the same – because a lot of people will jack up the fruit smoothies and stuff and high fructose which real funny enough is the sweetener for Pepsi and coca-cola high fructose corn syrup is going to jam-pack your liver with carbs rather than your muscles and fructose is also the sweetest carb so even though indirectly they may have the same thermogenic effect for carb to carb but where this carbon gets transported to and what it does in your body is a different story with fructose sugar and you know simple starches simple sugars so the last thing I’ll say actually because I’m just on a good little train of thought here is it’s very hard to avoid kryptonite on dirty bulks what I mean by kryptonite is as I was saying before the foods that you think are clean are not necessarily clean wheat germ agglutinin and other lectins in foods anything planted really but lightens can be in even animal products that have been fed you know certain GMOs or other plants opposed to their natural diet of grass dirty bulking essentially can do nothing to protect you from kryptonite and GMOs you know soy phytoestrogens lectins anti-nutrients anything that is doesn’t exclude you know certain processed foods or it doesn’t care about food quality is going to leave you prone to additives and things you don’t want even msg is commonly put in all the sweet delicious snacks that come very popularly on dirty Volks so msg for example is thrown in to make foods taste better than they are and it makes you hungrier so it makes you more inclined to eat more calories and thus probably add more fat but when you’re not using the plan that doesn’t eliminate MSG or other excitatory neurotransmitter so that you find them tasting better and that what they actually do as well is they make it harder for you to get the same amount of excitement from a certain food with other foods basically so you can only the Cheez Whiz which I know has msg basically is going to taste as good to you compared to other foods and you’re gonna keep going back to those certain foods that are undoubtedly filled with trash you don’t want to put in your body which again can do a variety of things things that will contradict your bulking goals because perhaps they’ll make you add more fat things that might mess with you on a hormonal level right if you’re not if you’re getting things with artificial dyes and then red food coloring those things even estrogenic compounds what they’ll do is they will make you more likely to add fat right which we already already established is not good for your bulking goals but they could make you store toxins in your flesh right these things could be filled with anti nutrients and those things are more commonly associated with dirty foods where you have no restrictions and you know you’re eating things that with no regard to if they have artificial dyes aspartame any carcinogenic sweeteners anything like that so at the end of the day the point with the Kryptonite is not only might it mess up your digestion and make the experience of bulking unpredictable and shitty pun heavily intended but what it will do is it can mess with your body on levels that you can’t even anticipate because you’re simply eating everything in sight so again this can be as simple as things that make certain foods taste better but it can also be as complex as things that you know will store in bury themselves in your fat cells and you won’t know about them until 2030 years down the line so that is my rant against dirty bulking I have never had a good dirty bulk experience of course I’ve had you know mixed results since it’s muscle gain plus fat gain but I will absolutely preach for cleaner bulking methods what I mean by this is you can do keto bulk so you could do carb bulks but whatever you do keep the dirty part to a minimum or at least have some discretion my ideal bulk is I do some keto bulking I do some card bulking at the end of the day you want to keep a baseline and have you know strategic amounts of you have a dirty day here and there a cheat day type thing but of course with good discretion hopefully this video has educated you on dirty bulking what you should absolutely not do it it is not worth it it has never been shown to add more muscle it’s simply been shown to add more fat and if you’re somebody who’s never cut before it’s also going to be a problem because it’s gonna make you more likely to gain fat and harder to lose fat little citing it again because the insulin sensitivity when it comes to jacking up your calories to 5000 a day from trash down the line you’re going to be insulin resistance so it’s gonna be harder for you to lose weight at first anyways this has been a long but hopefully educational video for you leave me some comments about dirty bulking clean bulking anything of your liking and I will answer you thank you for watching this video go to my website Vermont Aikido comm for Aikido coaching and programs very soon thanks [Music] [Applause] you [Music]
