    what's best for the hardgainer?

    the way i'm working out is heavy as i can handle, LOW reps (4-6)
    30-60 second rest in between sets, 3 sets.

    i learned this from my pops, he's HUGE! i wanna squat 600 lbs too! hahaha

    he also said HEAVY squats and deadlifts are what will bulk me up the quickest but i don't have the equipment for squats! what other excersises can i do besides squats that will do the same thing?

    i'm a hardgainer because my body adapts quickly , thus it is hard for me to gain muscle. i guess i just gotta get a rack for squatting and keep deadlifting!!! iv'e been gaining weight, but only about a pound a week. last season i was packing on 2 pounds a week without deadlifts or squats!

    If you have put on 2 lbs a week at times and now 1 lb a week, you my friend are no hardgainer.


    Do try and get a power rack for squatting though.
