Simple post here. I am looking ahead to around November-December to start bulking up. I took my time to do so because I wanted to make sure I was where I wanted to be in terms of being comfortable doing exercises on my weak ass ankle. Now I have come to that point. I am trying to decide if I should just increase my caloric intake by about 200 every week for 2 months or until I reach around 3800-4000 calories, whichever occurs first. I just know I want to gain some weight, I am not looking at a specific number, I just want more. BTW I only weigh approximately 160 lbs., thus the want to bulk up. Afterall winter will be coming along shortly. I do not plan to drop the cardio that I do, seeing as I am helping my ankle. I have felt nothing but better since taking up running with my ankle, so I see no reason to drop it. I currently eat around 2000-2200 calories daily, all good shit. I do have my cheat days to keep me motivated. Does anyone have any clue if a slow and steady increase in calories(good ones) is better for you than a quick and massive amount of calories? About how long should one bulk? I was thinking that after reaching the highest point of caloric intake I would maintain that amount for 3 months. Then I would decrease the same way I increased, reducing the amount of calories by 200 every week or so. Does this seem sound? Thanks in advance for any answers/help.
