This path will help get you to your max strength. But because you're lifting more weight during this phase, you're also going to be building more muscle.
The training we're doing is important to building strength and size, but what we're eating is even more important. Don't forget to eat enough calories to support the work you're doing in the gym. This is not a "shred" trainer, so there's no need to act like you're on a diet. If you want gains, you need to eat up!
