Gymchat 268 - Bulking on a Budget (Adam Klymkiw)

Get big without breaking the bank.


How do you pack on a bit of mass without spending a lot of money? Is it realistic to do so, and to what extent?

This week we'll be examining this area in detail; looking at what to get, when, why and how much it's all going to cost. Tackling it is Personal Trainer Adam Klymkiw, joined by 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 Adam and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and leave a comment or jump in the Hangout and ask it directly.

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.
