    Impossible to critique because what on earth is a lean bulk? Are you trying to gain muscle or lose fat? It's one or the other. You can't do both.

    Lean bulk is a pretty common term, bulking while trying to gain minimal fat.

    1) Cut your protein almost in half or show me any study that much protein has a larger benefit. Granted, you can eat that much protein if you want, just saying I don’t believe it is benefiting you anymore than 175g per day would.

    2) Eating whatever you want and snacking once a week can change 1-2 pounds per month gain into 3-4 pounds per month, meaning not such a lean bulk potentially.

    Lean bulk = a bulk targeting a gain of about 1% bodyweight (about 1-2 lbs for most people) per month in order to minimize onset of too much fat

    The idea being that most people cannot naturally generate more than about 2 lbs of muscle per month at most even with optimal training and nutrition.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Jose Antonio has some valid research, though the outcome is not based towards the general population

    I agree.

    People hold onto the idea of the scales going up as I'm gaining LBM, when realistically without assistance it's a very slow process.
