This is the easiest step of how to gain weight, but also the step that is so easy to get wrong. You must, you must, you MUST get plenty of rest. Listen, you spent all that time working out and tearing down your muscles, building up lactic acid. Now it’s gonna take allot of rest to repair all that damage and build up some muscle on top of it. Think about it. The more you do, the more calories you burn. Your trying to conserve calories so they can be used for repairing and building muscle. Rest is part of how to gain weight.
How much rest do you need? My good friend “Tiny”, who is actually the opposite of tiny and is an expert on how to gain weight, says never run when you can walk, never walk when you can stand, never stand when you can sit, never sit when you can lay down. Get the picture? You can use that as a guide line.
So, get your 8 hours of sleep every night and try to conserve your energy. All of this sounds opposite to what health guru’s are saying. But we have a high metabolism. That’s why we are skinny. If we’re going to gain muscle mass , we have to try a slow it down. So, get plently of rest and move to a slow beat and that’s how to gain weight.
