Anyone have any helpful tips for us small guys to gain weight? I'm 6'3" @155. BMR is 1836. I'm having trouble gaining weight. Here is my typical regimen of food. Any tips would help out.
1 yoplait yogurt
1 carnivore mass protein shake.
1 bag of instant pasta
16oz glass of milk.
1 10oz chicken breast
1 cup of vegetables (corn, green beans, or mixed vegetables)
1 serving rice or pasta.
Same goal man. Try to eat 5-6 times a day,like 3-4 hours between meals. Best breakfast is oatmeal with fruits. Eat chicken breast,turkey,tuna,eggs. And the most important thing- train your legs and core. Good luck
Thanks Noel, I'll up my calorie intake a but more and really put some stress on the muscles. I'm currently training in a freerunning gym around town, which is similar to gymnastics, but outdoors. Any other tips let me know, very appreciated.
That is the look im trying to avoid getting at all times. I dont want the bulky almost fat look, i prefer to stay lean and cut all year round if i can. i dont want to get huge or jacked, i just want to appear lean and cut, for my body to be able to do what it was made to do. that is why i prefer my workouts to be calesthenics and plyometrics rather than big bulky weights, i have no need to lift 250lbs over my head. the need i have for my body is all natural movements and motions, due to my freerunning training.
I mean no disrespect and I appreciate all of your help, I really do. I'm just trying to avoid that bulky look at all costs. I don't like it and it doesn't suit me and my dreams for my body.
I'm a bit intrigued exactly how many calories do you consume, and what does your typical workout look like?
Im trying to gain weight to im 165 im trying to get to the 200s im 6 feet tall. Any one of a good weight gainer. I could take or a good workouts i could do
A solid weight gainer is carnivore mass. $50 gets you a week supply and you drink it twice a day at 750 calories a piece. Back in December I was 140 and I've been drinking it since then and have hit 160lbs at highest weight. But I dropped back down after starting a workout regimen.
I try to keep my calorie intake at about 2500 a day. Plus my two carnivore mass shakes for an additional 1500. My workouts up until now have consisted of the following:
Push-ups to failure
30 accordion crunches
Pull ups to failure
30 flutter kicks
Dips to failure
30 accordion crunches.
(3 sets) Monday.
30 hanging crunches
20 calf raises (each side)
30 flutter kicks.
(3 sets) Tuesday.
5 low kicks left
5 low kicks right.
20 straight punches (alternating hands)
5 high kicks left
5 high kicks right
20 hooks (alternating hands)
20 sit up jabs.
Repeat cycle for Thursday thru Saturday.
mind you i only fell back down because i stopped taking it twice a day and started taking it once a day. but im back up to two a day and steadily gaining again. about a pound a week.
Thanks ill try thay.. I qas at 175 but seen a gut and started doing cardio big mistake us skinny guys loose weight fast so i messed up and learned the hard way but its ok im on track now
i would suggest a HIIT schedule. it help with lack of cardio but also builds muscle, or take your cardio down a bit. i've read a few times that to much cardio is bad for you. hence why you see those people at the gym that do nothing but cario, but never lose weight. you should try to limit your cardio to 2 hours a week, unless you're a runner of some sort, you shouldn't need much more than that.
