- See how to gain weight with a fast metabolism. You'll get 5 easy steps to follow so you can start making faster muscle gains.
This is part of the Weight Gain Network Expert Video Series. If you're a skinny guy who struggles to put on muscle weight because you seem to burn off all the calories you eat, then this video is for you so pay close attention.
#1 - Keep Your Workout Volume Low
As a skinny guy you already have a slightly lower than average recovery ability... so you don't want extra-long workouts to aggravate this problem even further. Your fast metabolism is hard at work burning calories all day long. If you want to gain weight then you need to be strategic about your workouts.
#2 - Lift Heavy Weights Using Low Reps.
You should do sets of 3-4 reps and 8 reps should be your max. Anything over this and you'll be training less for muscle growth and more for endurance.
#3 - Focus On Calorie Dense Foods
These are foods that have a high calorie payoff, but don't fill you up as quickly. These are things like nuts, fruit, salmon, whole eggs, oats, avocados, and whole grains. These types of foods will give you the biggest "bang for your buck" as far as healthy calories are concerned.
#4 - Use Weight Gain Shakes To Add More Calories
Weight gain shakes are fantastic for guys who don't have a lot of time on their hands (which is most people these days.) These will help you get enough calories in your body each day without taking as much time to prepare and eat. These can also be good for when you're away from home and need to get a quick meal in.
#5 - Rest Your Muscles At All Other Times
This is where most guys drop the ball. They work out so hard in the gym, and they think if they KEEP working out every day they'll get even faster gains. Wrong. You need to give your muscles a chance to grow. And in order to do that they need rest.
Gaining weight with a fast metabolism isn't impossible, especially with the right diet plan and workout plan (See Jeff Masterson's Weight Gain Blueprint program.)
