    could argue you guys said the same thing, Good work, now go eat more (eating more will progress your weight gaining goals)

    sorry to go off topic OP that is really good i remember when i restarted lifting again i was somewhere around that weight and every lb was another notch. I dont know if you are but you might want to keep track of some of your major lifts so you can go back a few months from now and see the progress

    What was wrong with my comment? There was nothing derogatory about it. I doubt he's content at 130, and wants to get bigger...so eating will be part of doing that.

    Anyway... congrats again... and go eat. Just like I'm doing right now, every 3 hours, like clockwork.

    Well done!! It's a very good feeling to hit a goal like that. I can relate.
    I like the photo of the scale. To me, that shows it means something to him.
    I just may have to do that.


    (And I didn't interpret Magnuss's comment as a negative one either, for the record.)

    just can't imagine what it's like to be so excited about gaining 5 lbs to reach a whopping 135lbs!
    sorry guys don't mean to poke fun at the hardgainers out there, but gaining bulk has just never been a prob for me.
    My prob is seeing my abs and some veins.

    It's good you are making forward progress, but on the right diet and program you can gain 5lbs of mass in a week easy. You should be aiming for that unless you are doing a clean bulk.

    Are you drinking whole milk? It's a great way to pump in the calories because it is relatively inexpensive, tastes good, and has a good balance of macronutrients. I'd try to start off trying to put down a half gallon, then work up to a whole gallon per day. It seems like a lot, and it is, but it is definitely manageable.

    How often do you squat and dead?

    Consistently gaining 5lbs a week is a very bad idea. At 130lbs, I wouldn't aim higher than a couple of pounds a week.

    I agree 1-2lbs a week 2lbs only at the beginning is that way to go. Unless you're an athlete and need to put size on for your sport quickly.

    This is somewhat true... It really depends on his goals and height.

    If he is above 6' tall, he needs to gain 5lbs a week until hes at least 160-170lbs. I have no science to back that up, but anyone over 6' foot and under 150lbs is extremely underweight, IMO.

    I don't know anything about his program or his goals. But if it's to get bigger and stronger, what would be wrong with adding 5lbs of mass a week? It will facilitate growth and strength gains.

    He will put on body fat, and if that is something he isn't comfortable with, then he should look to add mass more slowly.

    To be honest, to me he seems like someone with a small appetite, which is also shown by the time it took him to gain 4lbs. For someone like that, gaining 5lbs a week would require such a big calorie surplus that he will probably have to eat untill he gets extremely uncomfortable. That for me, is something im not willing to do. He will also gain unneccassry bodyfat which he will have to cut off later. He might as well take it slow, put on quality mass and enjoy getting bigger slowly.

    We are all going on a lot of unknowns and assumptions...

    Adding calories via whole milk is actually not that hard. Large glasses with each meal and another large glass between meals.

    Lately, I've been doing a half scoop of whey (~10-12g of protein) plus 12 oz of whole milk for a total of ~24g of protein... That's a decent amount of calories/protein you can put down 3-4x a day easy.

    OP, what program are you on and what does your diet look like?

    How old and tall are you? What is your main goal in training?

    Small appetite = small guy.

    If HE is not willing to do something that makes him " uncomfortable" putting on weight will be the least of his problems.

    I agree with your first point, but there is a difference between an appetite for 1-2lbs and 5lbs. Again i agree with your point but im just looking at being uncomfortable towards good gains. If i was very uncomfortable and gaining big amounts of fat i would lower it.

    I just wanted to show the perspective of having to do the extra bit with unnecessary fat gain as a result, which wouldnt make it worth it to me.
