Another weight/mass gain thread
This one is post "search function n00b" though. Although...i guess delete it if it's still that bad.
Just thought i'd ask if there were any more specifics.
Currently, i'm 145 pounds/65 kg, and about 187cm, and i'm looking to gain some weight. (Not too much about 5/6 kg), and looking in particular to gain muscle mass, rather than strength. I'm not in a big hurry to gain the weight though, there's no real time limit. (although, obviously the sooner the better).
What i've gotten so far:
1.Gallon of Milk+sqauts!!!!! (or as much milk as you can take)
3.Lots of Protein+carbs
4. Strength training
5. No cardio (or at least very little)
1.High weight low rep, or the opposite? (i know one is supposed to be for size, but i've heard them mixed around so much, i'm not sure which it is.
2. Should i cut out swimming?
3.I do have a gym membership, but i don't get to go there as often as i'd like, are there any particular exercises i can do at home that would suit well. (I only have two 15lb dumbells, and sit ups/push ups at my disposal at the moment really)
4.At the moment i'm drinking "supermilk" (it's a low fat multivitamin with slightly more), is the low fat element a bad thing if i'm trying to gain muscle mass? Or is fat not really related to muscle mass (or does the protein benefit outweight this negative)
5.What's a realistic time goal to set for this gain? (or to see some of this gain). I've read between .25 and 0.5 pounds per week.
6. Any other advice?
