I'm 5'8" 140 lbs currently. basketball player but want to regain the 15 lbs I lost since summer. Maintain 7% bodyfat consistantly but can't play any basketball if I want to weigh more than 140 lbs. Ectomorphic bodytype I guess.
8" x 4" hands
size 11 feet
6' 2" wingspan
20 years old
ectomorphic body type
parents are both 5' 8"
I'm projected to grow to 5'10 or 5'11" by doctors. Dad didn't grow to full height until age 24.
That might have something to do with my inability to put on weight. In a couple of years when I'm physically matured I figure it should be easier to gain weight.
As for right now should I be gaining weight if I'm eating enough good, clean food and training with this workout 3-4 times per week?
I want to figure out if my workout consistancy or my diet is the problem right now. As I've been eating more with this workout and haven't gained any weight. It's been about 2 or 3 weeks now so I figure I should be seeing some gains.
it won't let me post the link but
google: skinny bastards workout it's the first result
If you want to gain weight eat more. I am 5'8 150 but about 3 months ago I was 135. Eat more and lift heavy. If you are playing basketball you need to make up for the calories you burn by eating more. Go to Fitday.com and track your daily intake. You want about 200g of protein a day. Find your calorie maintenance level and then add on about 500 cals to start gaining some weight.
Lifting weights will make you stronger.
Eating will make you bigger.
Take randy's advice, start tracking calories and eating more.
