Hey Josh,

My question is in regards to putting on muscle.

Currently I'm in a powerlifting block of my year (as I told you in email). I'm eating a LOT, about 90% healthy, with the junk being from bread and cheese sometimes. I have put on some fat, but I feel that with my weight steadily increasing, my lifts will go up simply from the extra leverage, all with the goal of getting super-strong, and then at some point next year shredding down with a more bodybuilding style routine. Do you think putting on the excess weight has diminishing returns, or can it help?


Depends on how important that bodybuilding is to you and how fat we are talking.

If competing in Bodybuilding I recommend visible abs and some veins as a guideline.........most muscular guys aren't afraid to put on fat (but within reason)

If you want to email me a pic, I'll look and give my thoughts.
