Gaining Weight - How To Gain Weight The Easy Way

Aug 18, 2007
There are many methods of gaining weight and most of them are targeted towards people who find it relatively easy to put on mass as opposed to people who we mainly identify as being hardgainers. If you're a hardgainer yourself, then you should know what I'm talking about, but don't fret, there are things that you can do to build a substantial amount of muscle.

Identifying Yourself

Now if you think you're a hardgainer, but you're not 100% sure of this then there are ways to tell if this is true. Firstly check to see the diameter of your wrists and ankles. Generally hardgainers have very thin wrists and ankles. This means one thing - you have pretty much no chance of becoming a professional bodybuilder!

Don't let this get you down though, you will still be able to create a body that most guys would die for! You see, the majority of hardgainers who have worked hard to build a lot of muscle have been able to sculpt a body that is both athletic and well sort after by the majority of your male counterparts.

Hardgainers have the ability to rip down incredibly quickly, more so than people who find it easy to gain mass. If you ask me what I'd prefer to be then I would definitely choose skinny over fat, wouldn't you? Of course you would!

Gaining Mass For A Hardgainer - Training

All hardgainers have one thing in common when it comes to training - they can only build muscle by lifting heavy weights. This means sets of low repetitions - no higher than 8 reps per set and sometimes as low as 2.

You might think this sounds crazy but let me ask you something - how else are you going to shock your body into thinking it's a lot bigger then what it currently is? Because that's what it's all about, you need to persuade your body to believe it has the potential to grow significantly and lifting heavy weights is the only way when it comes to training.

Gaining Mass For A Hardgainer - Diet

The second thing that most hardgainers have in common is concerning diet. Now most hardgainers are naturally small eaters as their bodies only need a small amount of nutrients to support the required energy output in their body.

Now heavy training would naturally require someone to eat more, but not the hardgainer. They rarely get hungry and are satisfied with 3 meals a day. In order for you to grow, you need to again shock your body into thinking that it needs to grow in order to support the level of training it is now undergoing. So you will need to eat SEVEN big meals everyday!

Sounds like a lot and it will be for the first couple of weeks but eventually something amazing will happen - your stomach will expand, which then intern will create more frequent and painful hunger pains. Soon 7 meals a day will seem like nothing.

Stick to these 2 underlying principles and in a few months time you won't be able to recognize yourself. Oh and one more thing, like everything, the key is consistently, miss a meal and it will escalate, that I promise!
