The latest program from Vince Delmonte and Lee Hayward, called 21 Day Fast Mass Building, claims to help folks gain anywhere from 5 pounds to 20 pounds in lean muscle in just 3 weeks. It is based around the idea that traditional bulking programs make us gain unnecessary and unhealthy excess body fat…so the 21 Day program aims to shorten the bulking phase, meaning we gain muscle without the extra body fat.
Now, at first glance, it sounds pretty unreasonable to gain significant muscle in such a short space of time. I would normally expect growth to occur over a period of months, unless you are a complete beginner of course, in which case you’d typically see a massive growth spurt at the start and then it tails off.
What Makes The 21 Day Program Different?
The 21 Day Fast Mass Building program differs from traditional workout and training routines in 3 main ways:
- – Shorter bulking and cutting phases – 2 weeks bulking and 1 week cutting
- – Calorie cycling
- – Nutrient timing
The shorter bulking and cutting phases enable your body to get a high dose of quality calories in the bulking phase without overdoing it. Long drawn out bulking stages not only make you sick of eating but can also add on extra fat pounds and make your body less effective.
The short cutting stage helps you to stay lean without the possibility of losing any hard-won muscle mass, which can often happens during a long cutting phase.
Calorie cycling and nutrient timing is all about making your diet and nutrition plan as effective as possible. To gain muscle you need to eat the right calorie-rich foods AND eat them at the right time. It’s no good eating your calories when your body can not make use of them…this will lead to unwanted fat gain and stunted muscle growth.
