In the Hardgainer Training article I wrote the other day I talked a fair bit about how to gain weight for the true hardgainer. Here I want to do a much more thorough job of explaining just how to put on weight if you are naturally all skin and bones just like I was. This article should be read in conjunction with the newer how to gain weight fast article.
Before I start I want to get one thing straight. If you are not going to put in some hard work along with the eating regime then you can bugger off now. If you do not perform high intensity bodybuilding along with the eating regime then you will simply turn in to a fat f**k and look just a bloody awful as you would have done if you simply hadn’t bothered and stayed skinny. That is unless you have a medical condition or an eating disorder ans simply want to get to a more balanced weight in which case I apologize.
If you want to know how to put on weight quickly, and learn how to build muscle, but look good and get much bigger muscles then I welcome you to stay and have a read before you go and get yourself a barbell kit and transform your body so that you will have loads more confidence and have women (or men) swooning at your feet (although I never did get that result somehow)!
How To Gain Weight Without Being Fat
If you are a true ectomorph, i.e Skinny and without much in the way of muscle and extra weight then for a while you will have no problem with the issue of getting fat, at least at first. By simply following the eating regime you will gain weight and it will be some time before you have an issue with fat.
Trust me though, even the skinniest of guys and gals will eventually have the problem of fat, even though you may not believe it in your current condition. What I am going to outline is how you can absolutely, no questions asked, gain a lot of weight in a short period of time. To gain weight without getting fat you MUST exercise and to look the best your body should be trained with heavy weights Men and Women) unless you have a specific sport orientated goal in mind.
We will go in to more specifics in a while but at the heart of gaining weight is simply ingesting a lot more calories. You may think that you eat an awful lot at the moment but if you are healthy and have no medical problems but cannot gain weight then trust me, you simply are not eating enough. Let’s take a look at the magic potion that will be at the heart of learning how to put on weight fast and turn our bodies in to temples of desire for whatever members of the human race you wish to attract:
How To Make Weight Gain Shakes
As I stated in my previous article you need a cheap food processor. You can get them from like thirty bucks or so so get one here on Amazon now. Don’t wait until the next day or the day after etc. Read this article and then buy a blender, you are going to need it. Or juicers are great as well. You can make lots of great protein drinks for gaining weight fast. I like the Breville BJE200XL. Take a look at it and see what you think. There is a great juicer reviews site that covers it in detail, see the Breville BJE200XL review site for more information.
For the person wishing to gain quality weight and muscle mass in a hurry then you are going to have a real hard time consuming enough calories in the form of eating meals. You should ditch many of the drinks that you currently take and replace them with a high quality shake. Weight gain shakes are invaluable and you should buy a thermos to carry it around in wherever you go. Sip on it through the day and you will be adding a shed load of calories each and every day.
My Weight Gain Shake Recipe
This is by no means set in stone. Use your imagination a little but here is a recipe I used back in the day to very good effect as a super skinny youngster who wanted to be HUGE like yesterday.
- 1 blender
- 1pint of full fat milk
- a weight gain formula
- a few spoons of powdered milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 banana
- chocolate flavoring (optional, see how it tastes)
And the desire to get it down your neck at least once a day if not twice. In reality you will gain much quicker if you buy a quality weight gain formula like the one on the sidebar but if you don’t want to then just increase the amount of powdered milk and see how it goes. Try to sip on these weight gain shakes throughout the day and maybe make one up specifically as a meal between your regular meals
How To Gain Muscle Weight Quickly

I am serious guys and gals you need to seriously get motivated to turn yourself in to a crazed eating machine. I turned from a very seriously skinny dude in to a guy who got his lady by having what was quoted as “A lovely Bum” by putting on a few stone in a seriously short space of time. If all I had done is eat and drink my shakes it would have been rather wobbly I can tell you.

How Many Calories Do I Need To Gain Weight
Impossible to say. As you begin your body transformation you will need to think for yourself and see how many calories you need. Are you gaining weight? If not add more. Just add and add until you get he desired weight gain.
For some it will be more than others, just see how it goes. Don’t go for too much too quickly as you do not want to look flabby. You need a good set of scales and you should ensure that you do not put on more than a pound or two a week. After a while you will need to make some serious adjustments to ensure that you do not get fat. This will simply be down to your body and how successful you are with your bodybuilding routine for gaining weight quickly.

If you want to bulk up and gain weight quickly then you must accept a bit of fat as well. For super skinny dudes this will be welcome anyway.
How To Gain Weight And Muscle
Knowing how to gain weight and muscle fast is really as basic as I have outlined it. Eat, drink and work out like a demon. Put your heart and soul in to it. Live it, breathe it and most importantly love it.
Anyone can totally transform their body to look better than almost 99% of the population. It takes bodybuilding exercises where you test your resolve and your wish to succeed and the dedication to consume huge amounts of extra calories with a muscle gain formula or a lot of less than optimal powdered link. I would get the weight gain formula and also add what I told you about in the weight gain shake.
Train hard, but train sensibly. I wrote about the trap bar and how much I believe in it so don’t ever risk using bad exercise form. You will be stopped dead in your tracks if you exercise badly and hear the dreaded “ping” as your lower back collapses and you cry just trying to get out of bed or take a pee. I am serious here, never perform an exercise unless you know how to do it impeccably, you are asking for trouble even if it is a few years down the line.
How To Gain Weight With A Fast Metabolism
My metabolism was so fast it was crazy. Just follow the directions and you will gain quality muscle mass in no time. I am not saying that you will be huge in a few months but you will look totally different. You will look like a new improved you with more confidence and a much better physique.
Train hard, train sensibly and eat like your life depended on it and you will accomplish your goals a lot quicker than you could have ever imagined.
How To Gain Weight Fast
What, that wasn’t fast enough for you?
Okay, then you will definitely need a weight gain formula. The best one is on the sidebar so go get it. Still add all the extras though and build up to very intense workouts as quickly as your body can get used to it. Train two to three times a week depending on your age and how well you recover. Your aim is to add weight to the bar each and every session.
To do this you will need to put all other physical activity on hold (well, most) and save all of your energy for eating and training and sleeping for as much time as you possibly can. You only gain muscle after your body has recovered from its workout and begins to grow to cope better with the demands you are placing on it. If you cannot add weight to the bar at least once a week then you are either training too much or you are not getting sufficient recuperation.
How To Gain Weight For Women
I have not left you until last ladies, the fact of the matter is that this was not written for men. It applies equally to everyone who wants to gain muscle and body weight quickly. There is no difference in what you have to do so get to it.
I hope that his has inspired you to get going. Stay motivated, eat like it was an Olympic competition and train like a demon. Any questions please feel free to ask away.
