The purpose of this study was to determine the increase in muscle thickness (volume) before the bulking phase to the maximum bulking phase so that the expected muscle thickness corresponds to the criteria in the body contest event. The kind of research was quantitative descriptive using survey methods and test and measurement techniques. The test instrument used was circumference measurements which consist of neck, shoulder, chest, upper arm, and abdominal. Data analysis techniques used percentage analysis. The population in this study was Parahyangan Fitness Club Ciamis. The participants of this study were 10 athletes. The result of the average measurement circumference measurements for neck was 5.64%, shoulder was 4.85%, chest was 7.70%, upper arm was 13.38%, and abdominal was 5.84%. Therefore, it can be concluded that there were the increase in all muscles measured, especially on the arm circumference which has a considerable increase because in every exercise program arms had the active part of the exercise and usually it was done in the last part of the exercise after the other muscle parts had been trained.
