Alright, so let’s talk about what you’ll need to do in order to pack some serious muscle mass onto your skinny body.

Start Eating More Calories Than Your Body Burns (Get On A Weight Gain Diet)[adrotate group=”1″]90% of your weight gain program will be focused on your diet.
And the main principal you need to understand is that your body is burning calories all day long. Whether you’re passed out drunk, walking an old lady across the street, or running from the cops, your body is still burning calories.
So what does this mean for you?
Well, when you eat a meal, your body uses that food for energy to fuel your body and build new muscle tissue.
…But your body will only build new muscle if you’ve done the right exercises to stimulate muscle growth. (We’ll get to that in a second.)
So what happens when your stomach is empty? Well your body has to get energy from somewhere, right? Where do you think it gets energy from?
Your body will get energy from 3 places:
- Glycogen stored in the liver and muscles
- Body fat
- Muscle tissue
Did you see that last one? MUSCLE TISSUE!
Yeah, your body will actually break down muscle tissue to use as energy – keeping you skinny and preventing you from gaining muscle!
When this happens, your body goes into a “catabolic state” and begins eating away at your muscle tissue – making you smaller and smaller. “Catabolic” is basically the opposite of “Anabolic.”
But remember, this only happens if you aren’t eating enough calories.
So what’s the solution? It’s easy. You simply eat more calories than your body burns. This keeps your body in an anabolic, muscle-building state at all times – so your body has the resources it needs to build new muscle tissue.
So How Many Calories Do You Need To Eat To Start Gaining Weight?
There are a few different formulas you can use to figure out how many calories you actually need to eat. A lot of them get very scientific and convoluted.
But the formula I use is much more simple. See, everyone is different. We have different metabolisms, different lifestyles, and different genetics. The best we can do with a calculation like this is get close to the number of calories you’ll need to eat. From there you’ll need to track your progress and adjust accordingly.
So here it is. You’ll simply multiply your body weight by 20. The number you get will represent the daily calories you should start eating each day to put your body into an anabolic state that’s primed for muscle growth.
Lift Heavy Weights – And Give Your Muscles A Reason To Grow
Yep, it’s time to hit the gym and move some iron.
Erase anything from your mind that told you that you could gain weight by “taking this pill” or “drinking this shake” or “taking this new supplement.”
Yeah… that new Hyper-Max-Gainer-Xplode-Mega-Force supplement that just came on the market is complete crap. Don’t waste your money.
Diet and exercise, baby – that’s the secret.
Now don’t get me wrong there are a FEW supplements that can help you along the way. However, no supplement will have any effect whatsoever if you’re not doing these 2 things:
- Eating more calories than your body burns
- Lifting heavy weights
So what kind of weight training do you need to be doing?
A short, intense workout focusing on compound lifts.
What are compound lifts? These are exercises that stimulate muscle fibers in more than one muscle group at a time. They’re also called multi-joint lifts.
So for instance, the deadlift doesn’t just work your legs. It also works your back, glutes, arms, shoulders, and traps.
This stimulates growth all over your entire body!
Now compare that to isolation exercises. These lifts only focus on 1 muscle group at a time. This forces you to lift lighter weights and stimulate less muscle fibers.
Here is a list of great multi-joint mass-building exercises you can start using to start bulking up:
- Barbell Rows
- Military Press
- Bar Dips
Become A LAZY Mofo And Grow Muscle Like A Weed
What if I told you that you could gain muscle in your sleep?
It’s 100% true. In fact that’s how your muscles grow. They don’t grow when you’re in the gym lifting weights. They grow OUTSIDE the gym when you are hanging out resting.
And rest is exactly what you need after doing all that heavy lifting in the gym. Your muscle fibers are broken down and your body is working hard to build new muscle tissue for you – making you bigger and stronger so that next time you go to lift that heavy weight you can do it with ease.
…It’s your body’s natural “defense mechanism.” It adapts to the stress of the heavy weight by saying, “Oh damn you wanna lift heavy stuff? Alright well I’ll build some new muscle for you so you can lift that weight with ease.”
The more rest you get the faster you’ll grow, period. I won’t beat this point to death, I think you get the idea.
So those are the basics… Diet, weight training, and rest. But the rest is in the details. That’s why I’ve created a complete step-by-step weight gain program called Weight Gain Blueprint.
