The Best Way To Gain Weight For Skinny Guys - 3 Important Tips -? Discover How To Gain Weight Fast! In this video I talk about the best way to gain weight. Some guys ask the question, "What is the best way to gain weight, is there a certain supplement I should take... is there a certain food I should eat...? And you can ask these questions independently and get an answer... but the truth is, I always like to tell people, it's a combination of things. There's no one supplement that you're going to take - or even a combination of supplements that's just going to magically help you gain weight. There's no one food that's going to make you gain weight either. It's going to be a combination your diet, your workout program, and a lot of other little things that go in between. So it really is a combination of things that work synergistically together that help your body put on muscle mass. Let's talk about some of those things. So obviously you're going to need to hit the gym. If you want to gain weight, gaining weight means gaining muscle mass, and that means lifting heavy weights. Specifically you want to do compound exercises that involve more than one muscle group. So things like the bench press, squats, stiff legged deadliest, barbell rows, things like that - that involve more than one muscle group is going to stimulate a lot of muscle fiber, increase growth hormone, testosterone, and get your hormones really pumping. So that's big tip number one, if you're not already using compound lifts in the gym, focus mostly on compound lifts and it'll play a big part in helping you gain weight. Number two is going to be your diet. Obviously everyone is different. Everyone has a different metabolism, resting metabolic rate, and all these things, so if you're a skinny guy (which I'm assuming you are if you're watching this video) then a good starting point with your diet is to take your bodyweight times twenty... And whatever you get, that's how many calories per day you should start eating. Now that's not an exact science, it's just a good starting point. If you take your bodyweight x 20 whatever number you get, say it's 3,000 - then you're going to eat 3,000 calories per day. Start there. Start doing the compound exercises, start eating enough calories, and weigh yourself a week later and see if you've made any gains. And if you haven't then you need to bump up your calories, or tweak your workout... maybe you're not really doing the workouts you're supposed to be doing... One more thing I want to let you know about the workouts is that more is not always better. Some people believe that the more workouts you get in the more muscle you're going to grow... Well that's wrong. That's not always the case. Guys who are on steroids can go in the gym 6 days a week for 2 hours at a time, or whatever they do, and they can get away with that. ...But for naturally skinny guys with average genetics or below average genetics, you're going to want to start working out 3 days a week tops. Split up your workout into 3 days. Stop trying to work out 5 days a week. So those are 3 good tips that I can give you right now, but if you want to get more tips on how to gain weight and build muscle, meet me over at and I'll see you there! -Jeff Masterson
