6 Ways of Gaining Muscles and Putting On Weight

6 Ways of Gaining Muscles and Putting On Weight Different people have different kinds of bodies, and if you are naturally skinny, you might find it hard to bulk up and transform your body. Even though it is not easy, there is no reason why you can’t put on some weight and gain the kind of muscles you want. All it takes is the right diet, the willingness to work hard and a positive attitude.

Here are 6 simple methods that are sure to help you bulk up and get the body shape you want.

Eat 5 to 6 meals a day

To gain weight, you will need to start eating a lot of food. However, trying to eat it all at once could cause indigestion and your body might not be able to absorb all the calories. You may not be able to eat again 2-3 hours after breakfast or lunch. But, eat anyway, and you will notice a gradual rise in appetite. It is a good idea to consult a dietician to find out what kind of foods you need to consume.

Weight train at least thrice a week

Training with weights goes a long way in making your muscles grow.  Gradually increase the weights you are training with for best results. As you train, your strength will increase, making it easier to use greater weights. If you start with a heavy load, you could end up hurting your body.

Consume more calories than necessary

If you want to stop being skinny, it is important to make sure that you consume more calories than you burn. Eating at least 500 calories more over a whole day ought to produce noticeable changes. A dietician will tell you how much food you should eat every day.

Workout your entire body

A mistake that many people make is to exercise only their upper body, when at the gym. Concentrating just on your shoulders, arms, chest and abs will result in a disproportionate body shape which isn’t too appealing. Moreover, it also makes you more injury-prone. Therefore, make it a point to work your entire body, including the back and leg muscles.

Try and eat fast

The human body takes some time to signal satiety. It is because of this reason that people looking to lose weight are advised to eat slowly. By eating fast, you will be able to consume more calories. The extra calories will not be used by the body and will be stored away as fat. This will increase your body mass, and by working out regularly, you will be able to convert the fat into muscles. Be careful to not overdo it and choke on the food you are eating.

Be realistic

Different people have different physiques, and if you don’t notice any immediate weight gain, there is no need to feel discouraged. Hoping to gain weight quickly without compromising on health is pretty unrealistic. Even if you are not noticing any major changes within a few weeks, don’t give up and stick to your health regime. With a positive attitude, you will eventually gain weight and become much stronger than earlier.
