Weight Gain Tips

Michael D.

I was never really skinny, I was always just Average or something about there. I was about 170 at 5'11" when I started 2 months ago. I am now 183 lbs. but even more impressive is that my body fat has gone down from 16% to 13.5% which means my gains are all muscle. People are starting to notice, expecially people i haven't seen in a while.

I had started weight lifting programs several times but always gave up because I never saw any improvements. Looking back, I now know that the reason I wasn't seeing results was because I wasn't eating right and because I was probably training too much. The funny thing is that I spend much less time lifting now and my results are incredible. I truly wish this site had been here about 5 years ago and pounded some sense into my head.


My Routine is really basic. I do a full body routine MWF, doing 2 sets of 6-8 reps of each of the following exercises, modified from one of the sample routines.

straight leg deadlifts
calf raises
Bench press
bench dips
military press
bicep curls
crunches (with added weight)

That usually takes me just a little bit over an hour to do. Pretty soon I plan to switch to a split routine but I will continue this way as long as I see results. The only supplements i use are whey protein and creatine. I make sure I get at least one gram of protein for every pound every day and I make sure I eat at least 3,300 calories a day. That's it.

My tips for others are to read this site. This site is about getting good results for the Average Guy. As an average guy you need to have a good diet, you need to train right and you need to rest. Trying to do those routines in the magazines won't work and taking a million supplements won't work. I've been there and done that. if there is one thing I would say you should pay special attention to it is the dieting. Doing the workouts was never hard for me but keeping to the diet was. I started out trying to eat 3000 calories a day and at first I had trouble getting there. But I stayed at it and it got easier. Once you start eating more, you start getting hungry more. Don't give up too quick.
