"How do I add muscle and lose body fat?" Everyone is seeking an answer to this magic question. In his latest article, John Jewett shares some ways we can operate a proper off-season that will keep body fat in check while adding a substantial amount of tissue.
There is often a great deal of confusion surrounding how to approach the process of getting in shape. Whether you’re starting preparations for a contest or want to get yourself in shape, the most challenging part is simply getting started. An evolving approach is best. Just as you wouldn’t go from being single to completely changing your life by moving in with someone you don’t know, I think it’s foolish to make grandiose plans to commit to a diet that is a huge departure from what you currently follow. What if that diet is just not right for you? To go from a diet that you have been following for a significant period of time, regardless of how good or bad it may seem, to one that is radically different is usually a mistake.
The off-season allows you to be a bit more flexible with your eating compared to pre-contest. This does not mean it's a free-for-all, but there are ways to incorporate variety to break up the monotony of a bodybuilding diet. John Jewett explains in his latest article how to properly execute a flexible dieting strategy.
