I want to bulk up not in the body builders sense but just to add more muscle in the upper body. The problem is I also like to do a lot of cardio like biking or running so obviously I need some extra protein in my diet if I want to gain muscle.
Here's the situation. I don't like the idea of spending all my time at the gym and doing all the cutting/bulking routine that they spend countless amount of time on. Ive noticed that I bulk up quite readily even when I start doing a lot of pullups,chinups, and pushups on a regular alternating day basis. However, when I am also doing cardio like I am now, I feel as if I dont bulk up as much and I feel weaker, so I am thinking maybe if I add a little bit of whey protein into my normal diet I can see more improvements.
So far it seems as if my "rountine" is giving me results, but I seriously think I am doing something wrong here because I gain and loose muscle mass very quickly. Once I start doing this "routine" I see big improvements but if I falter just a little I loose the hard work really quickly and strength. Is the problem that I simply need more protein?
