If your goal is to put on quality muscle, this is the program that will help you do it. The off season is typically the period of time after an athlete competes where the calories are higher but is not limited to only competitors. This program is designed for any level of fitness and includes everything that you would get from the Contest Prep or Lifestyle program, the only difference would be in the process itself. Putting on lean muscle takes time and calories. You can't just bump the calories up for a month or two at a time and expect to really grow. You should be prepared to be in a caloric surplus for a minimum of 12 weeks, giving yourself enough time to start building muscle properly. This programs is almost exactly the opposite of the fat loss programs being that we are growing now instead of stripping down tissue. You can expect the calories to be much higher, and while this sounds easy, keep in mind that, the calories must progress as your body will adapt just like when it plateaus in fat loss. You will not be doing as much cardio, but some is still necessary for growth. The training will be more directly focused towards specific muscle groups to illicit the most damage and growth rather than splitting up and hitting numerous body parts at a time, which is good for overall calorie burn. When you put on muscle, you are going to put on a little fat in the process and you'll be retaining a lot of water, this is inevitable and typically the reason why most never really spend the time needed to grow. If you want to be successful in regards to gaining mass, you must let go of the idea that you can be shredded year round, and for this period of time you're going to be a little fuller. If done correctly however the amount of fat you put depends on quality of the program and how well you follow it.
