Gymchat 239 - How to Get HUGE! (Craig Bongelli)

Ready to pack on some serious muscle?


Whether it's for strength, competition or aesthetics, how do you go about packing on a serious amount of muscle mass? Is it just a matter of 'eating everything in sight' and training hard?
This week we'll be discussing this area in detail, explaining exactly how to tackle your hypertrophy goals. What's possible, how long it takes and a whole lot more. Taking us through the entire process is Strongman and Strength Coach Craig Bongelli, together with Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.

NB : We'd love to hear your questions and comments. If there's a particular subject you'd like Craig and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat (during the discussion itself) and jump in the Q&A.

And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
