The traditional methods of bulking and cutting are far from optimal for aesthetic-minded bros over 40 who have years of lifting under their belt.

In this episode of the Physique Mastery Podcast coaches Bryan Krahn and Scott Tousignant discuss:

* How lean you should get before entering a muscle building phase and why you should use caution when attempting to get super lean.

* The increased importance of taking a slow and steady approach to building muscle over 40.

* Why you should spend as little time in a deficit as possible.

* Setting different goals other than scale weight.

* Why progress doesn’t mean you need to continue gaining weight year after year.

* The importance of sticking with a structured nutrition plan when going off a diet.

* How we’re always learning through experience.
