Michael Holding is a Legend, however he made a small, but significant error regarding what causes people to put on bulk. You do not becoming bulky by lifting 500 pounds for 2 reps. The more repetitions you do the more bulky you become. If you lift a heavy weights and do few reps you do not become bulky at all, but just strong. That is the reason why bodybuilders spend more hours in the gym than strength athletes, like for example power lifters etc. Time under tension (more reps) = bulk. Heavier weights with few reps= strength with lean muscle mass.
