Weight Gain Tips

Many people seek to gain weight, because doing so improves their power and sports prowess. If you don't get the connection here, think of why boxers and wrestlers are must stay within weight ranges when competing. Or imagine that 300lb football guard landing on top of that 180lb quarterback. Size matters.

Unfortunately, many people fail to understand that weight alone is far less valuable than lean weight. And weight alone can actually cost you, in terms of performance and health.

So the key here is to gain lean weight. Here are some tips for you to do just that:

  1. Train hard. Intensity is key. No pain, no gain. Muscles grow only to the extent you challenge them.
     
  2. Train smart. See our article on building muscle.
     
  3. Get adequate rest. Muscles grow during the resting phase, only. When you have inadequate rest, you get inadequate growth.
     
  4. Don't deliberately eat toxins. Eliminate refined "foods" from your diet, and do not drink "soft drinks" (osteoporosis, fat gain, and esophageal cancer in a can) at all.
     
  5. Engage in an intelligent program of nutrition. Ignore the fads. Eat more leafy green vegetables, and you automatically increase nutrient density while lowering caloric density. See our many diet articles on this site.
     
  6. Engage in an intelligent program of supplementation. At the very least, get  a good meal replacement powder (MRP). Use this for foundational nutrition three times a day (eat 3 small "whole food meals" and three small MRP shakes, and watch your Adonis body emerge).

 

 

Article Authorship

The articles on this site are authoritative, because:

  • Every contributor is an expert in his or her field.
  • The articles comply with the accepted principles of the bodybuilder literature.
  • The articles comply with the teachings of such luminaries as 8-time Mr. Olympia Lee Haney.

 Where an article is not bylined with a specific author's name, it was written by Mark Lamendola (see photos on home page and elsewhere on this site). Mark is a 4th degree blackbelt, has not been sick since 1971, and has not missed a workout since 1977. Just an example of how Mark knows what he's talking about: In his early 50s, Mark demonstrated a biceps curl using half his body weight. That's a Jack LaLanne level stunt. Few people can even come close. If you want to know how to build a strong, beautiful body, read the articles here.
