If you are looking to be succesful in reaching kings squad, 'bulking' is not what i would recommend, unless you are below the 65KG minimum weight. Getting stronger, is though. This doesn't mean that you will build muscle, infact, you can loose muscle and still gain strength by doing bodyweight/crossfit exercises, which will be much more beneficial to you. You dont want to be carrying all that extra weight (muscle) around with you in RT because it will weigh you down when it comes to your running.
I dont mean that to sound like a lecture, you probs know all that already.
hi mate i increased my body weight by doing a combination of strength weight training , ie. heavy weight up to eight reps and supper setting 2-3 times a week , and doing my body weight /cross fit training , 4-5 times a week . when i first went to the afco 2 years ago i was just over 67kg , had to stop my app due to an injury but now back on the app and got a prmc in April and weighing 80 kg but still strong and i think fairly quick , its just finding the right balance mate and your bulk up and get strong whilst remaining light on your feet .
I'm having the opposite issue. I'm 6' 3" and a naturally broad build so have always been quite heavy in RM terms. I'm currently at 84kg and its going up weekly now that I'm throwing in strength work again. I stay away from weights and strictly stick to body weight. I'm also swimming five times a week (nothing strenuous, just gentle recovery stuff) and running three-four times a week. I think just before the medical and POC I'm going to have to go on a massive effort to drop weight and muscle if I keep gaining at this weight.
If you're a racing snake, I suggest you do everything you can to stay that way. Lugging extra bulk around really isn't fun!
Thanks for your advice. I dont want to bulk up like putting lodes of weight on. I am trying to build up my upper body muscle and around my shoulders and arms. Do you have facebook cat chat on there.
Thanks and im sure you will lose weight
