This book was really informative on muscle growth.


In order to bulk up you will need to eat a lot of protein and run a calorie surplus of good quality foods.

if you are asking if you are eating too little, it probably means you are not sure

in bodybuilding, you should know exactly what and how you are eating as it is the yin to the yang of working out

im not going to explain bodybuilding to you, read this

or go to r/bodybuilding and look at the sidebar

In that case, I honestly wouldn’t recommend any certs. The value prop of a cert is that it gives you a credential to (hopefully) open doors. That’s the biggest reason certs cost a lot more than other educational resources.

tbh, I’ve mostly just stuck with textbooks and original research. Brad Schoenfeld’s textbook would probably be a great one to start with (if you haven’t already read it): https://www.amazon.com/Science-Development-Muscle-Hypertrophy-Schoenfeld/dp/1492597678

Learning from the likes of 3DMJ, Renaissance Periodization, Stronger by Science, and the rest of the evidence based crowd (Brad Schoenfeld, Alan Aragon, James Kreiger, and more) will do an excellent job of teaching you what you need to know. Additionally, you might even consider hiring a bodybuilding coach to obtain firsthand experience with the process. Knowledge is really useful, but experience is even better – and this is coming from a guy with a bachelors in exercise science and a certification from NASM.

Here’s some reading material you might consider,
“The Art and Science of Lifting” – Greg Nuckols and Omar Isuf
“The Muscle and Strength Pyramids” – Eric Helms, Andy Morgan, and Andrea Valdez
“Scientific Principles of Hypertrophy Training” – Mike Israetel, James Hoffman, Melissa Davis, and Jared Feather
“The Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy” – Brad Schoenfeld
