Weight advice

#1
Hi, I've done my BARB test and am currently training to get ready for RSC. I weigh 9 stone, which meets the requirements based on my height (5'9"), but i want to put on some more weight.
Does anyone have any tips on good ways to put on weight (aside from just eating more obviously) in a healthy way?
Thanks

carbs - eg pasta....and protein eg lean red meat (steaks etc....) and fish / chicken

try to avoid fats (sweets and cakes etc) - you want to put on muscle mass and not fatty tissue.

try weight and strength training - these will bulk you up with heavy muscle and build body mass

for my money, 9 stone at 5'9" isnt bad...try working out your 'body mass index' BMI:

i think its

height in meters/weight in kilos squared (may b wrong? Ask a PTI bod.....).

.......you want a result betwwn 20-25 unless (you're really muscley- i which case it'll be higher!)

cheers

YOU BASTARD...... I hate people who try to put weight on, wait till you become a wrac-arrse and try shifting weight off. no-one will help you then , they'll just laugh and make fun of you. Well, I would anyway.

BMI does not take fat/muscle ratio into consideration hence you can be the same height and weight (thus the same BMI) as a Premiership footballer but be a couch potato and have nowhere near the same level of fitness and I think you'll find that a lot of Guinness Premiership Rugby players would be classed as clinically obese. Its not a very accurate way of gauging your muscle density. In fact, it doesn't measure it at all. There are 3 types of bodies-endo, ecto and mesomorphic (I think) which is (don't know in what order) tall skinny string of p1ss, average joe, and short stocky tw@t. The BMI test does not allow for this.

so supposing your one of those tall skinny strings of piss with a BMI of 19.3, bearing in mind i have a month till PCB and 4 months till sandhurst am i gonna be in trouble? Any suggestions...creatine etc?....

Depends what sort of creatine you're taking. Most of it is impure shite to be honest. www.bio-synergy.co.uk is a good company-all their stuff is outstanding but is a tad bit expensive. They'll sort you out. You get what you pay for. You won't get in trouble with a bmi of that but it all depends on why you want to bulk up. Have a look at that company I mentioned. Of course, you could eat 2 jars of mayo followed by a litre of clotted cream 3 times a day but I don't think you'd be alive in 3 months time.
