Can I gain 6 lbs a month??
 

 
Is it possible to healthily gain 6 pounds a month?? I feel that I am very under weight due to my rediculous metabolism and I really want to gain 30-35 lbs. by the end of the year... It doesn't need to be 100% muscles gains because I'm not worried about being completely ripped right now... I just want to put on some weight and be healthy...

I think reasonable amount of muscle gain over a week is something like 1-1.5 lbs for a mesomorph (someone put puts on muscle easy, has a muscular frame) and maybe some drugs on the side. Thats lean... of course, I put on 15 lbs a month for like 3 months straight in 2003, but most of it was fat.

tsk tsk.....dont do what this guy did and workout upper and lower body everyday. make a workout schedule like Monday - back and shoulders, Tuesday - chest and arms etc etc and stick to it. but dont do your workout routine the same way all the time. like on tuesday dont work out your chest and then arms. switch it back and forth arms/chest, chest/arms. if you work out the same way all the time your muscles get use to the routine and makes your workouts less effective.

a workout routine that im trying and its been goin good is this. when you do a workout put it to the most weight that will allow you to do 6-8 reps, 3 sets. this helps add mass/muscle to you. i've gone from 175 -> 195 doing this routine.

Lol at you I was saying one muscle in the upper body and one muscle group in the lower body, and who said I did the same routine...I didn't specify anything...and you are telling him to do a workout routine you made up..isn't that same thing u told him about not following me...I do the same routine you do..I wasn't saying 2 upper body workouts the same day..lmao..be easy kid.

Take away the drugs on the side, and I think even that is a lot... That's 50-75 pounds of lean muscle in one year... I just don't see that being done naturally...

Of course, if you fu*k wit your hormone levels, anything goes...

6 pounds in a month shouldn't be a problem... just eat enough (and then some) and lift heavy and you won't have any trouble...

15 pounds in 3 weeks is possible too, but that was mostly fat... I'd hate to eat what you ate in that period...

from may 17th to july 5th, i gained 15 poundz, and its not fat. i just ate like 3 egg sandwichs a day, ate pasta like i came straight out of italy, and my home-made "weight gainer shakes" :D i would drink 3 at a time, that would make up for a meal and a half, or maybe more. i went from 105-120.
note: i am only 14, and i just began lifting, in the beginning of june.

Ah'ight cool... Now can someone help me put together a workout?? I've read that since I'm a hardgainer trying to gain weight, that I need to shock my muscles... How exactly do I do this?? I've read in certain places you should only do 3 sets of 6 reps and a heavy weight, but I've also read I should do 5 sets of 8 reps... I've tried to workout on my own before, but I was completely clueless on how to approach everything thing so I crashed and burned... I'm completely new to weight-lifting and was hoping is y'all could help point in the right direction on how to get started...

this should be very simple...... :

Workout

Bench : 4-5 sets of 10,8,6,4,2

Squat : 4-5 sets of 12,10,8,6,6

If you wanna do power cleans, do 4 sets of 10, 8, 6, 6

Those are core workouts. For other "complementary" workouts just do like 2 to 3 sets of 10, 8, and 6. Remember to leave a day off, Wednesday is recommended. Also, do weight that you can handle, don't put 225lbs on bench if you know that you can barely do 135lbs. Also, most people don't like doing powerclean or hang cleans because they're hard as hell but it works your body fully, even your abs. Give it a try!

Sure it was fat... That's 2 pounds a week, obviously it's not all muscle...

Either way Sk9, a starter workout should base itself around basic mass building core movements... The Bench Press, Squat and Deadlift should be at the center of one day each, then you fill in additional exercises later... Say you split your workout like this:

Monday: Chest / Biceps / Abs (Bench press, Incline bench, Decline Bench, Barbell Curls, Dumbbell Curls, Crunches, Reverse Crunches)

Wednesday: Legs / Shoulders (Squats, Calf Raises, Straight-Legged Deadlifts, Leg Press, Military Press, Upright Rows)

Friday: Back / Triceps / Neck (Deadlift, Pull-Ups, Barbell Rows, Dips, Skullcrushers, Shrugs, Jaster Shrugs)

Just basic sh*t... How many sets you do is determined by your recovery speed, which varies from person to person, but I suggest you don't do more than 10 sets total for any single large muscle (i.e Chest, Quads) and no more than 6 for smaller muscles (like Biceps, Triceps)... Then you can try increasing or lowering the total volume as you get more familiar wit how your body responds to the training...

Stick wit heavy weights that you can only lift for 4-8 reps wit good form to activate muscle fibers wit lots of growth potential...

Now, if you're completely new to weightlifting, how do you know you're a hardgainer...?

I've read a few weight-lifting magazines from when I was trying to get into it a while back and they defined a hardgainer as someone with a very high metabolism and has a hard time gaining weight... From your reaction, I'm guessing I'm wrong??

Basically, you won't know whether you're a hardgainer or not till you been lifting for a minute... Obviously, there are certain traits that are typical for different body types and if you're a skinny cat wit high metabolism and long, slender arms and legs you're prolly Ectomorphic, which is often referred to as 'hardgainers'... You could still posess several MESOmorphic traits tho, which will make the whole ordeal of packing on muscle a lot easier... Point being, you can't know for sure till you have SOME experience...

It's not really that important tho... The basics of weightlifting are the same... Ectomorphs just have to eat more (LOTS of protein) and carefully watch their volume so they don't overtrain, whereas Mesomorphs can do pretty much whatever they feel like and still get bigger (like my man Freed who gets giant lats from doing dips!!!)... I'm 100% ectomorph myself... It just means you gotta be ready to work harder than others...

So yea, don't worry bout all that complicated stuff for now... Just get the diet on point and start lifting heavy-ass weights, monitoring results as you go along...
