How To Gain Weight And Build Muscle Naturally

Nov 6, 2007
Have you spent a lot of your life being skinny? Are you fed up with it? Do you think you've tried everything there is to gain good amounts of weight and muscle? Well if you answered yes to any of the questions above then you should definitely read on because it's time to change. Whatever it is that your doing now it's not working trust me! If it was working you wouldn't be reading this article now would you? So listen to everything I've got to say on how to gain weight and make sure it registers with you, because if it doesn't your going to carry on being the same weight you have always been, and that is'nt what you want...... right?

First of all, let's get down to the basics. There could be many reasons why you struggle to gain weight, but usually the one that is most apparent in people struggling to gain weight is genetics. This can be the bane of existence for anybody interested in bodybuilding and weight gain, but with the right information on diet and training it doesn't have to be.

Muscle Building and Weight Gain Diet

Like you, I'm a hardgainer so I have to eat more than other genetically gifted people to gain weight and build muscle. People who find it easy to gain weight and muscle have slow metabolisms and don't really need to eat as often or as much as we eat. So, to gain weight and build muscle you should be eating every 2 to 3 hours at least, and this doesn't mean just any food, oh no, there's no fast food, high carb, high sugar food involved, just plain natural-healthy food full of calories, proteins, and essential fats. Get a good diet plan set in stone first of all then you can work from there.

Getting the right diet can depend upon your current weight, height, age, sex, and lifestyle. This is because a rough caloric intake needs to be calculated, so that you can obtain weight gain. It's no good eating all that food for it not to be enough or for it to be to much, this is why it important to calculate your calorie intake compared to your weight, height, sex, as even eating a couple of 100 calories a day can effect the results you get.

The right training program

Training is not the most important aspect of bodybuilding, ask any bodybuilder that. It's your diet plan which is the most important, especially for hardgainers. This does not mean that you should just eat, eat, eat... Oh no, do that and your just going to gain excess fat. You really must get a good training plan set out as well, the usual amount of days training for someone that wants to gain weight and muscle is 1 day on 1 day off, so it's 3 split days training, with 2 days off for resting.

The training programs that hardgainers face have hardly any cardio whatsoever. Usually 5 mins warmup on a bike then some good solid weight training. A usual gym session for me lasts around 40 to 50 mins which is a long time in some peoples standards, some just do 30 mins then they're off. All you need to do is a good solid 30 mins of working to your limit every other day and you will see massive improvements when coupled with the right diet.

A good Bodybuilding Program

Getting the right program for bodybuilding and gaining weight is essential. They give you the information in easy to follow formats that will guide you all the way to your bodybuilding desires. This can serve really well if you are a beginner bodybuilder or if you need a step by step guide to get you on the right track. There are some fantastic programs out there, its' just a matter of finding the right one that will produce results for you.

Bodybuilding programs help you plan your diets and training program to a tee, so that you can reach your goals easier and much faster. There are also some bodybuilding programs that offer coaching programs with there ebooks, which are superb for a beginners in my eyes.
