It comes down to: Alternating two-week bulk and cut cycles are optimal for lean muscle gain. http://www.musclemedia.com/training/abcde/v58_abc1.asp Seems an interesting theory. Anyone have any further opinions? The article has a sort of PR-spin tone to it, but all I can see they could be selling is the guy's book - which he hasn't finished writing. I'm keen to try incorporating it into an HST cycle somehow. It would have to be modified, but I haven't figured out how would be best yet. Chris.
