Thread: Gaining weight

  1. #1

    Default Gaining weight

    I have ranged from 145 to 152 in the past couple of years. Currently I am hovering at 155. I really want to make 160 due to the better level of competition in that weight class. I know my technique kicks butt over most of the competition in my area but I need to gain the additional 5 lbs in a way that it will stick. Is my best bet just to focus on building a bit of additional muscle?

    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Yes. Start lifting more. You will also want to pay closer attention to what you're eating... Others on the forum will have a better idea as to the % of each, but this is what I ran across:

    <table width="60%" align="center" border="1" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="content">
    Protein
    </td> <td>
    20-50%
    (1-2 grams per lb. of Bodyweight)
    </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="content">
    Carbohydrates
    </td> <td>
    30-60%
    </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="content">
    Fat
    </td> <td>
    20-30%
    </td></tr></tbody></table>

    Can you win a state championship easily at 145 or 152?

    Couldn't you just make 152 but bump up to 160?

    To gain weight try lifting with heavy squats, with your top sets do enough weight so you can only do 4-6 reps. Make sure you have proper technique and a spotter befoer doing this.

    Eat more...

    I know it sounds overly simplistic but thats really what you've got to do.

    That combined with whatever workout program you're on that combines I assume lifting and wrestling should do you.

    All of you guys/girls that have weight issues gain/lose, should invest in Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook 3rd edition. It is a fantastic guide to teach you how to properly eat to perform.
