Protein + Exercise builds muscles.
Carbohydrate + Inactivity builds fat
Both will gain weight but it's the muscle you need to work on

stay away from that weight gain SHIT, puts crap into your system and fucks you up! lol

just EAT more, that's all you need to do, plenty of meat (chicken breast,tuna,mackerel,salmon,haddock, VEGETABLES!!!, wholewheat PASTA) FRUIT etc... it couldn't be simpler really!!!

Rule: eat GOOD food, stay away from BAD food lol it's THAT simple haha

you could try a protein shakes if you don't get enough protein in your diet, but go for maximuscle products if you do, expensive but good!

to be honest, I wouldn't bother training 'specifically' for weight gain, you will pack on muscle when you train anyway, just as long as you eat right and train right!

tab, run, swim, lift weights do circuits eat well drink lots of fluid
you want to be overloading your body do it has a chance to recover and repair its self
if you want to put on lean muscle mass go to the gym 2-3 times a week and do on one day
deadlift
bench press
lat pulls
shoulder press
ab work all five x five reps (make sure the weight is heavy enough to reach voluntary muscler failer at about the 5th rep) except abs do these to failure

and two days later do
press ups
pull ups
sqauts
lat raises
barbell curls
tricep dips
lower back back
and go for 15-20 reps x 4 sets (muscular endurance)
and eat loads of lean meats and high gi carbs spaced over 5-6 meals a day

why you want top put mass on is beyond me though if its for the army just work on cardio and circuits (local muscular endurance) and forget about the body beautefull club its not functional and will weight you down if your all for that then at least wait till you get to battalion then bulk up all you want but for phase 1-2 its the old heart lungs and core your gonna have to work on

If you want to gain a lot of weight then get married... it certainly seems to work well for females.

eat meals of good protein (like suggested before, lean chicken, tuna, eggs and brown rice are all VV good.) Lots of fresh vegetables for the vitamins and fibre.

A protein shake like Maximuscle Promax will help. Take one in the morning and one after training and that should keep you topped up.

Also, consider eating 6 meals a day - smaller portions, mind you rahter than 3 big ones. Worked for me.
 
#14
Find some one twice as big as you with a bit of gym knowledge and work out with them (obviously not using the same weights)
Eat more protein
Add creatine suppliment as this seems to allow you to train a bit harder
Bench/squats/pullups (proper ones) do the business

work hard but rest hard as well

Don't use that weight gain stuff - its crap. Do loads of weight training as muscle is heavier than fat. Use decent Creatine suppliment. A tea spoon of good Creatine in the morning with decaf coffee and spoon of sugar and again in the evening, this is called loading, after a week just take it in the morning but you have to do gym work and weight training with it. Its about £20 a tin but should last a month or so.

Eat lots of protein like egg whites (no yoke), skinless chicken, oiley fish for Omega 3s, brown rice, brown bread etc, decent steak.

Remember you need to do lots of gym work - you just cant take weight gain stuff out of a tin and assume to look good. It never does exactly what it says on the tin - contary to the picture on it. After a while when you start to see progress you'll get addicted to it - I guarantee.

Go to a decent gym which is orientated to weight training. Don't worry what you think you look like before training, there are all shapes, sizes, and ages in the gym and all there for their own style of training and benefits, some may even be for medical reasons. A good gym will be really helpful towards your training and you should get an induction. I'm always helping new people on different machines and apparatus.

Hope this has helped a little.

Your mum and dad when they created you, gave you a genetic base which you are 'stuck' with. Gym Queens and others classify body types into 'endo' 'ecto' and 'meso' with proportions of each.
Stage 1 therefore would be, if you are a serving soldier, go find a PTI. Medics are also a good option as they've had to deal with the side effects of substances 'legally' obtained at the local civvy gym. There's stuff sold in such places for the purposes of physical enhancement, propogated by the Americanos but not accepted by the British Medical Authority. Creatine, the last time I looked was one such product, though you can find it in every 'health' shop in this country.
You haven't chosen to mention your age, height or current body weight, that would help in advising you.

I think you will find the option, on CDT's to, document the fact you have been taking creatine.

Army sports men and women quite frequently use creatine/monohydrate type products to enhance their training capabilities. I think you might find it is acceptable to use certain products.

Creatine 8000 ES is my advice for anyone wanting to use such a product. You can normally get it in the NAAFI.

Does your disability preclude you from coming to a point which has some link to the actual facts

What? You already know this kid's age, height and weight to proffer advice on this topic?

Yup yer right, I'm an ultra conservative, moderated by experience bro. If it's 'creatine' you are obliquely referring to, then fine, I'm out of touch .


I was of a generation that saw the generic use of 'anabolic steroids' originally conceived to put weight on concentration victims, move into the world of 'performancing enhancing' Olympic sport.
I was in circumstances, where feckers debated the 'moral' argument of "it's not performance enhancing, it's merely has a recuperative effect and will repair tissue damage, as a result of intense training, that much better."
I've watched kids, projectile vomit and experience severe diahorrea having only digested fluids as recommended by every 'Olympic' athlete under the sun. Metabolism is a funny old thing, and we're not all structured to the same formula bro.

Advice on push-ups and sit-ups I can live with, even allowing for the 'sports science and I've got a national coaching award in underwater accordion playing brigade' Whatever happened to common-sense and intuition?

The 'body-beautyfull' tribe as they've got older have rarely published their heart attack, stroke, blood transfusion and kidney failure experiences as a result of 'experimenting' with 'weight gain' products, although there's an element out there that feel 'sports science' are now on top of it all.

I'll concede the 'creatine factor' if that what you say. My question really is, "today creatine, what tomorrow?" Be careful of what you advise a client whom you have never met what to 'take' and how to train.

If you are a 'civvy' do your thing my friend.
As a serving soldier, however it pains and upsets the ego, talk to your local PTI or Medic as a startpoint. Guns can be awful items in the hands of over-testostoroned fuelled individuals.
