5 Lean Bulking Breakfast Recipes

5 Lean Bulking Breakfast Recipes

Getting your day started off right is a must if you hope to build lean muscle massand have the energy required to get through your to-do list.

Some trainees make the mistake of thinking that because they’re bulking, they can eat whatever they want for breakfast and feast on foods like bacon and sausage, Pop-Tarts, or pancakes smothered in maple syrup.

That’s one way to get calories in, but it isn’t a healthy one.

Let’s show you five lean bulking breakfast recipes that will provide you with the calories you require while keeping you lean at the same time.
