But I can't.
Most proberly dream of this, but some do have this
problem or think they have. The solution is often always simple, you don't eat
enough. You simply have to train yourself and especialy you stomach to proces
more food. And that food should be rich in energy. Liters of fat free yoghurt or
big salades won't do the job.
Try to eat energy rich foods, don't eat lean
products but choose the more fat variances, and talking about fat, eat more fat!
Before I start a whole story, let's keep it
simple. Eat at least 3 meals a day, if you don't start doing so. And besides
that, take at least 3 times a day something extra inbetween.
Start with this and do that for a week and weigh
yourself and look what it brought you. Did you not gain weight, eat more
every eatingmoment the next week, after a week you again weigh yourself and look
at the result. Keep doing this until you see your weight rising. At that point
your don't increese your foodintake anymore, but keep eating what you
It won't be easy, but keep at it, it is a matter
of training your stomach, so you have to eat!
Next to eating being very active plays a role, if
you are very active and use a lot of energy this way, try to lower that, try to
avoid any unnecessary exercise. Of course you shouldn't exaggerate and only lay
on the couch. But walking, cycling or standing for hours a day should be
avoided, if possible.
For athletes who want to gain weight, often
being fitness and bodybuilding people, there are the socalled hardgainers, in
general what I wrote above does also apply to them to, they simply don't eat
enough. And on top of that they proberly also train to much and do to many sets
and reps in their training.
Training means giving your body an impuls and
after that its needs time and buildingblocks (enough and the right foods) to
process that trainingimpuls.
And by the way, real hardgainers are rare, most
who think they are, have no patience and have the wrong expectations, without
doping you simply can't build mass very rapidly. What we see in fitness
magazines are often users and the stories written next to the pics are mostly
made up nonsens. Pro bodybuilding is knowing how to use the right doping, so as
a non user don't try to follow that. Be realistic.
Trainingwise, forget about isolation exercises,
focus on the base: squats, deadlifts, benchpress, rows, shoulderspresses. Do
exercises at which you use more than 1 joint. After a good warm up do a few
heavy sets, that is enough. Keep the reps low, between 5 and 10 max.
Cardio is fine, but keep it short and don't do it
to often. Do it for fitness reasons.
Foodwise, eat enough and especialy enough
proteine, to grow you body needs aminoassits, take during every eatingmoment a
good proteine sorch. Eat at least 2 grams proteine per kg of bodyweight.
