As there are different takes on this topic my take is this, "Lean Bulking" is a carefully calculated nutritional plan that would be slightly over maitainance (or even carb cycling). The nutritional plan would be very clean, ex. Chicken, whole oats, brown rice, sweet potatoes, leafy greeans etc. NO sodas or sweets. For training you'd wanna stick with a routine that focuses on the big lifts with lower reps and some accessory lifts with a slightly higher rep range.

*EDIT* I would also like to add you will want to shoot for a gain of no more than 1.5lbs per week with 1lb being ideal. Reason for this is to maximize the muscle gain rather than the fat gain that comes along with traditional "Bulking".

Here is a good subject I think a lot more people should understand...

What percentage of size gain is attributed to an increase in muscle mass and then energy storage?

Knowing that you should train for each a little differently, what percentage of your workout should you devote to each?

Sorry it took so long to reply crazy busy, but I'm here.

First question is atough one and I don't think one can acurately measure, correct me if I'm wrong? People train with different intensities, nutrition and programs so size gain could very well be scewed by inflamation or water retention.

Can you clarify your second question?

Sure, no problem. This is a topic that I find interesting.

I've heard it said, and I tend to agree with it, that genetic potential for size gains will partition out to ~75% dry muscle (Myofibrillar) and ~25% energy storage (Sarcoplasmic). So my question is; If these numbers are close to accurate, what percentage of your training should be devoted to each type of hypertrophy?

Training for energy storage (Sarcoplasmic) only accounts for ~25% of your genetic potential, but most bodybuilders put a larger emphasis on high rep "bodybuilder" type training. Does this type of training demand that kind of emphasis?

Training for dry muscle (Myofibrillar) accounts for a much larger percent of your genetic potential, yet bodybuilders seem to do far less of this low rep type training. Is this type of training more economical and therefore requires less overall attention in your routine?

In my experience: (I'm not always right)
Competitive BBer are all about size, separation and symmetry. Size don't always reflect power. ( How many know a twig that is much stronger than he looks).

Higher reps over 7-8 threw 15 has some documentation it cause more fiber recruitment for a great % of people. Thus build size in recovery providing both lifts and nutrition are a true effort.

Lower reps 5 or less have some documentation in a great % of people to build power and raise the need for energy stores. Forcing the fibers you have to produce more and heavy work. ( example would be a farm boy, not necessarily cuts or separation but build like a brick crap house (solid) or a twig that can blow you mind lift a truck to get it unstuck )

I would figure lift and pick rep range by your goals. Lift a ton or have size and separation. Again this would be based also on trial and error. What does your body react to. Log and track I think is a good way to find out. But thats my opinion and I'm not certified in anything.
