My first response was a bit over simplified, but the main three factors in gaining solid mass are your diet, your workout, and rest. Slack on any of those three and your progress will stagnate. Your diet should be rich in protien with atleast one shake a day (directly after your workout), and maybe another one or two if you are finding it difficult to eat enough lean protiens. "Eating like an s.o.b." isn't gonna provide the nutrition you need to grow if you are talking about fast food that's loaded with saturated fats, snacks full of processed carbs and refined sugar, the empty calories in soft drinks, and the testosterone suppressing effects of converting alcohol into sugar. Your calories need to come from wholesome sources like chicken, tuna, lean red meat, pasta, oatmeal, fruits, and vegetables. Keep your sugar intake limited as well, too much will negatively affect your insulin response, keeping your body from processing the calories as effectivley.GARS02GSTA said:WTF !!
I eat like a s.o.b. and cant gain shit....Im the same weight. My workouts are very intense.....Im not getting fatter but Im not getting much bigger either.....what do you guys ea to gain weight ? Foods in particular and how much ?? how often ??
unfortunately its also loaded with sugar, which is counterproductive. Like he said, pure, wholesome foods. Almost any kind of processed food is bad. Go to the store and buy some steaks, chicken breasts, fish, sausage, beef jerky, etc... Stay away from a lot of carbs, its ok to eat some but don't load up on them. Its better to eat protein than carbs.GARS02GSTA said:OK.
What about Peanut Butter ??.....I heard that was a good source of protein.
You need a few carbs for energy and a few basic functions, but protiens are the building blocks of the human body. Fats and protiens can be burned as energy, but your muscles will shrink and catabolize without sufficient protien in your diet (i.e. high carb diet).AL P said:You are.
16 to 20 set's of 10!?AL P said:
Make sure and get plenty of rest. Workout and eat like a fucking animal!! You should be doing 16 to 20 sets per body part with lots of weight, never more than 10 reps, your last set should take help on that 6th rep.
