Weight gain.

#1
Hi all,
I've decided it's about time that I put a bit of weight on, I've got such a hyperactive metabolism that no matter how much I eat it just won't happen.
I don't, however, want to turn into a blubbery store goblin.
I'm not shy where it comes to fitness, but short of runs/tabs in my own time I'm a bit of a novice about what else to do.
Any suggestions?

How much exercise do you do daily/weekly?

What is your objective? Ifyou currently do a half marathon everyday then pretty much you will get thinner and lose weight, irrespective of what you eat, unless its six bags of 2kg Sugar

A good way to slow down a metabolism is eat foods that are high in fibre. In this case specifically salads, leaves, grains and breads etc.

Now to gain weight is a bit more difficult. To do it healthily your body needs a physiological reason and means to do it. So what you can do is try body building; a particular disciple mind you.

Try natural* BB with a high weight or resistance, that you can only achieve a few repetitions with. This will cause micro tears in the muscle tissue being exerted.

Using protein from meats and other poultry in your diet. Your body will repair your muscle, whilst gaining useful weight.

You will see effective weight gains after a month, though they'll be in the pounds (lbs)

Though there is more I can say on the subject I'll end it here.

Hope I can help

I do whatever the PTI tells me.

In all seriousness, I do company fitness on the days that it's in the program, when left alone I'll do somewhere between 2 and 6 mile runs, or tabbing. When doing tabs I try to mix it up with mileage, weight and just doing hill reps.

My objective(s) are pretty simple, get to a decent healthy weight, build up some muscle and 'healthy fat' that I can rely on to get me through Herrick a bit easier than the last one (I came back just under 9 stone) etc etc.

And on a scale of 1 - 10 how legal is the above list?

Legal to posess for own use, illegal to supply then its classed as a class C drug with up to 2 years in nick, I contacted customs before going to Thailand working and they told me I could bring back up to 3 months supply for my own personal use as long as it was declared to them upon arrival in the U.K. , I would'nt know how the army would treat it though but it was pretty rife with 2 REP.

Class C is still a no no...

As as a scientist, after reading the above bullshit above. I am fairly convinced I will never try anything like it.

It makes statements contradictig sound science without providing evidence or anything to support itself.

Just to back this up, the main factor in gaining muscle weight is diet. Eat plenty of lean protein (1.5-2g per kg of bodyweight), and good, clean carbs post workout (wholewheat pasta, veg etc) to use for energy in the muscle-building process.

protein could come from those shakes right? Of course this is assuming they actually work.

No and yes. The protein found in shakes is intended for power athletes. A soldier is an endurance athlete. The total opposite, unless your a Nigerian or Ethiopian soldier.

The protein in the shakes is synthesised. Not the natural sort found in meat products. The protein is a composition that is intended for high energy demanding activities that are anaerobic. Like sprinting, powerlifting and maximum exertion efforts. The muscles needed in such activities are fast twitch.

As a soldier, full body strength and endurance is necessary for Bergen work, TABs/ Yomps (If your RM) etc.

These activities are aerobic by nature due to a demand for energy over a long period of time. The muscles needed for this are slow twitch in particular, along with cardio and skeletal muscles.

All rounded, I would say stay off the shakes if you can help it. A single shake is not a problem because that one shake does not compromise on your endurance, it will just have a very minor effect on power.

I hope I helped
