PAboy05 asked:

I love to lift weights and I get stronger but I never seem to get bigger. I eat a lot and I still don’t get bigger. Can someone give me a workout they feel would work or a diet they feel would work for a hard gainer. Please help.

Building Muscle

Need a Muscle Growth Spurt?

Try this simple program for boosting your muscle-growth.

For 3 weeks, do nothing but Squats on Day 1 and Day 3, Bench Presses on Day 3 and 5, and Lat Pull-downs on Day 1 and Day 5.

First week, do 6-8 reps per set, for 3 sets.
Second week, do 8-12 reps per set, for 4 sets.
Third week, do 12-15 reps per set, for 5 sets.
Fourth week, do your “normal” routine (whatever that is).

For the nutrition side, take heavy doses of weight-gain powder 3 days in a row. On Day 4, take no supplements. In other words, heavy supplements ON three consecutive days, OFF one day.

Supplements to consider:

  1. Weight Gain powder
  2. Creatine
  3. BCAAs
  4. Liver tablets

Along with these supplements, eat plenty of eggs and milk.

This is a time-honored weight-gain program that goes back to the ’50s. Muscle builders have been using it for decades with great success.
