3 tips on how to gain weight fast
If you’ve ever told someone you were trying to gain weight, I bet you had a really weird reaction. Most of the people you meet are trying to lose weight. So when you mention that you’re trying to gain weight, you might hear, “You can have some of mine” or “Why do you want to gain weight?” You could say, I don’t know, while thinking in your head because I’m tired of spending all my money on food and still being a skinny wimp. You don’t have to be that skinny guy anymore because I have some tips to share with you on how to gain weight fast.
I know it’s frustrating trying to pack on muscle and year after year you give up because you haven’t seen any results. I suggest you don’t give up just yet, the information you are looking for on how to gain muscle is about to be discovered for you. The best thing you can do is keep learning about what you’re trying to accomplish, keep reading, and then put what you’ve learned into practice.
Eat healthy and nutritious food
You are what you eat, this is a truth that many people do not believe. However, it is very true that if you eat junk food all the time, your body and its functions will also become junk. Eating foods that are solid whole foods is very important not only for your long-term health, but also because they are the building blocks of the muscle tissue you are desperately trying to build.
When I say whole foods, I suggest cutting out fast food altogether and minimizing the number of times you eat at other restaurants during the week. If you want to gain weight and muscle, you need to plan ahead. You have to make your meals the night before, prepare them for work, and bring your high-quality meals with you. You can’t rely on an unhealthy restaurant to supply you with the nutrition you need to repair your muscles, because the nutrients are most likely not in your food.
You have to keep track of your calories in the beginning as well. You want to have a pretty good idea of how many calories you consume every day. The reason for this is that if you don’t gain weight, then you need to adjust your calories a bit. However, on the other hand, if you find yourself gaining a lot of fat, you may want to cut back on your calories a bit.
Use only supplements that work
There are some supplements that can help you gain weight a bit. But unless you cut back on your diet and training, you’re wasting your money. I’m not in favor of using a bunch of useless supplements, I see it the way Vince DelMonte sees it. I’m pretty sure he’s against most supplements, except maybe a few.
I find creatine, protein powders, and a good multivitamin to be a good addition to your diet. The reason for the multivitamin is simply to make sure your body has all the vitamins and minerals it needs to repair itself. It’s hard to make sure you’re getting all the vitamins you need from your food, which is why I suggest the multivitamin backup plan, just to cover your butt. I use the opti-men multivitamin, which seems to me to be of good quality and you can space it out throughout the day taking it at breakfast, lunch and dinner. This will provide your body with vitamins and minerals throughout the day.
Activate your muscles to grow with training
Your weightlifting routine will have a big effect on your success in gaining muscle, primarily by causing your muscles to grow. The only weight you’ll gain without doing an exercise program with the other two steps is fat. I’m sure no one is trying to get fat, at least I hope so. This is the step that plants a seed in your body that then asks you to nurture it so it can grow.
Choose a workout that is in the 4-8 rep range and aim to press heavy. This rep range will target your fast twitch muscle fibers and fast twitch deals with strength. It’s best to focus primarily on multi-joint compound exercises like squats, deadlifts, pull-ups, and bench presses. These exercises will give you more value for your money and will also help release large amounts of growth hormones to help you gain that muscle you’re looking to pack on. A side note is; I would be careful doing the bench press. This exercise can do wonders for your chest, but if done incorrectly it can lead to shoulder problems.
If your goal is to gain weight, then you should consider following these 3 tips. You should eat high-quality foods that are preferably organic whole foods, eat enough calories, only use supplements that are proven to work, and run a heavy weight training program. By following these tips, you will be well on your way to getting on the right path to gaining weight.
