28-year-old natural fitness superstar Jeff Seid has established himself as one of the most famous fitness influencers in the world right now; it all started several years ago when he shared pictures of his incredibly aesthetic physique.
Since then, Jeff has continued to work hard and improve his already incredible physique and has achieved the special status of being the youngest IFBB pro that competes in the Olympia.
In recent months Jeff slowed down his posts on Instagram, and people were wondering what happened to the fitness icon.
There is a good reason why Jeff stopped posting, as he is known for his incredibly ripped aesthetic.
When you think about Jeff Seid, you picture a ripped, muscular elite physique that has been shredded all his life.
However, that was not the case recently as Jeff’s physique seriously changed recently.
To the point that he almost became unrecognizable by his fans worldwide.
Jeff did a dirty bulk, and while he packed on serious muscle size, it was also a lot of fat.
Jeff Explains what happened with his physique.
Jeff made a post on his social media page explaining exactly what happened, and here’s what he had to say:
I got fat and the reason why I got fat is because I dirty bulked. Now dirty bulk is when you eat everything in sight to put as much size and weight as possible bu there is one dilemma, you put on a lot of fat and that’s exactly what happened to me. So I bulked for six months, the first four months I was actually pretty clean, I was very strict with the diet I was gradually increasing the calories as my weight was going up and I wasn’t really gaining much fat, I just gained mostly muscle and it was a pretty good time. Eventually I got to 5000 calories per day and that’s what I was eating every single day and then the last two months of the bulk I liked seeing the number just go up and up and up so I decided let’s “f’in” eat everything, let’s get huge, it’s time to dirty bulk baby, I stopped doing cardio and I started eating everything, hey I put on size, I got up to 232 pounds so I actually gained 40 pounds from the beginning of my bulk to the end of my bulk which is actually a lot of size to gain in six months, it’s about 6.6 pounds a month and I’ll be honest with myself I know it was not all muscle that I gained, it was a lot of fat and that brings me to the next part of the dilemma, I had to shred very hard to lose all the fat and unfortunately I also lost a lot of the muscle, the newly build muscle that I gained from the bulk, I lost it from shredding all the fat. The reason why I had to stop the bulk and the number 1 reason I think dirty bulking is not good is that, it is very unhealthy. What happened to me personally is that my blood pressure went through the roof and I decided it’s time to stop the bulk it’s time to stop dirty bulking and its time to shred. My advice to you is to not dirty bulk, you need to bulk responsibly, increase your calories gradually as your weight goes up, keep doing cardio, eat fairly clean most important thing is to keep your calories in a surplus, getting good sleep, getting good rest and rest means not training, you are also gaining muscle when you don’t train, you need to recover, you need to be honest with yourself, evaluate your physique and the progress you are making and look in the mirror, don’t just focus on the scale. Look in the mirror see how much fat you are gaining, if you are gaining too much fat, not as much muscle it might be time for you to start shredding and end the bulk. Would I recommend dirty bulking for you? No I wouldn’t"
