Mass Made Simple

Mass Made Simple… Really?

“If you have to eat a plate of frogs, eat the biggest one first”

I couldn’t think of a more suitable way to start my official blog than to track and document my six week journey into bulking.  Mass Made Simple is a book written by one of my mentors Dan John. It is a very “matter of fact” blue print to building on a serious amount of muscle in 6 weeks.

Putting on muscle is hard. It involves 3 things that I really struggle to do

  1. Sleep for more than 6 hours consistently
  2. Eat consistently throughout the day
  3. Exercise Consistently (around injuries)

Yes, I am a fitness professional and yes I own a gym but for some reason this process has been a struggle for me. Nonetheless I feel emotionally and mentally ready for this ride.

My goals:

  1. Finish the Program
  2. Eat my way into the next weight class (heavier then 185lbs)
