Welcome to Mesocycle 2 (Cycle 2) of Project Mass. It's time to up the ante and kick your growth into high gear! From here, each microcycle will get progressively more difficult. You can expect the next four microcycles to be even harder than the previous four. But don't worry; you'll support your tough workouts with some extra calories. In general, you'll eat about 100 more calories per day than you did throughout Mesocycle 1.
One major variation between Cycles 1 and 2 is exercise selection. Some of the lifts you'll be doing in this cycle may be unfamiliar to you. If that's the case, be sure to watch the how-to video guides attached to each exercise. These new lifts will challenge your body with a new stimulus, spurring additional adaptation.

In Cycle 2, aim to eat roughly 100 more calories per day than you did in Cycle 1. In the first microcycle, a 180-pound guy should target roughly 2,700 calories, 70 grams of fat, 300 grams of carbs, and at least 225 grams of protein in per day.
