    I don't think I am incapable of putting on weight but my metabolism is faster than most peoples. I eat anywhere from 4-6 times a day and would like to get to around 185-195. My primary goal is athleticism and my training reflects that, this year I would like to get to 175-180 and I have been eating 4000+ calories on days I workout.

    My main problem is that M-F I workout 2x a day. One of which is almost always a distance run. I realize that if I wasn't working out so often I would have much better progress but the morning workouts are mandatory because of my military service.

    Do you have any tips on what I can do to increase my appetite so that I can eat the excess I will require to put on that weight?
    I'm similar to you- best advice I can sY (and I know it's gonna be hard) is replace distance
    CRdio with sprints. I used to be so addicted to running.. Once I stopped distance runningand doing just sprints, bike intervals, and prowler, I gained 10 pounds of muscle (sept-present) maybe more bc I definitely reduced BF as well! It is HARD for me to gain muscle, EASYYYY to get fat.. Skinny fat ecto t a T!

    I can't. The PT is mandatory and I absolutely hate distance running.

    I much prefer sprints and was a sprinter in HS.

    Oh, military? The problem w distance running is it really increases cortisol and lowers T So on top of lifting, potentially bad sleep, and not be able to eat enough, that's a tough battle to fight IMO with ANY body type.. Let alone how we are.. Looking forward to the professionals opinion! Lol

    Its a losing battle.

    And it's rough on the joints to put down the distance we put down every week.

    Yup. I have chronically inflamed SI joint and developed arthritis in my low back after logging 20-30 miles a week from age 18-24(presently but no longer Running lol) Plus heavy lifting, plus sprints, plus 6 years of football in hs/college!

    Its hard to increase appetite. I find it easier to use more liquid meals/caloires and to eat more calorie dense foods. You need to make sure to take in a huge portion of carbs after both of your workouts, along with protein. These are the critical times to feed the system.

    There IS a night time natural GH/IGF-1 -releasing supplement called Sovereign (I think that is how its spelled), that almost all users report makes them starving all day.

    Hmm I guess ill just have to add the liquid meals in between meals. I just wont blend chicken again (that was terrible when I did it)

    I generally eat a ton of carbs (literally a whole ton) but I ha e been having a more protein/fat rich breakfast which is my post run meal and will definitely increase my Carb count with that meal.


    Thanks for everything, I'll look into that product as well.

    I used to be wayyyyyyyyy thinner than you, and it was quality weight gain shakes that got my weight up. I also could only eat so much!

    I believe you! I've come a long way since starting 5 years ago, when I first started I weighed like 115-120.

    Thanks for all the help, hopefully I can make some good progress in 2013.

    Eric, I have alot of trouble developing my lower outer chest. I have looked online and done everything I can find. Do you have any advice on this that could help me out? My father was also a avid bodybuilder back in the day and he had this problem as well.

    I am 24, 12-13% bf, 176lbs at the moment. Been training for 3years. I started out weighing 145 and around 15% bf


    This spring I will be try to cut down as much bf as possible so I feel that will help some. This is the first trimming down I've ever really done.

    I have a question for you my man. When I do incline (doesn't matter if it's bb or db) it hurts in my front dellts. Would it be bad form? I've watched myself in the mirror and everything looks good but it happens every time. I do incline after flat bench so I would assume they should be warmed up.

    Wide dips with elbows out, partial reps of those will stretch the lower and outer pec real nice

    **PNI'S COACH BROSER "DID YOU KNOW" TUESDAY**


    -That a Harvard study shows that one of the many benefits of fish oils is to cut the risk of gum disease.
    -That blocking Myostatin helps increase fat breakdown/use and activates genes controlling brown fat activity. (Note: creatine has been shown to help decrease Myostatin!)
    -That eating broccoli with spicy foods enhances absorption of its main cancer-fighting component, sulforaphane.

    The leaner you get, the better you will see that nice lower/outer pec line - that is for sure.

    The number one exercise for this area is dips. This will nail that spot. Next would be decline flyes. These two make for a nice superset that will just "light up" the lower/outer pecs!

    I would have to see your form to know if something was off. Are you properly positioning your torso on these?

    We must remember that it is impossible to TRULY isolate any one part of a complex muscle since it will contact as a WHOLE no matter what. However, it is my belief that we can "target" specific areas of a muscle somewhat through proper angles, grips, and planes of motion. Top affect motor units in the area of the chest you are asking about your best bets would be:

    -low cable crossovers
    -seated flye machine with elbows held in line with shoulders/upper pecs
    -narrow grip incline presses
    -narrow grip smith press to neck

    I find that in these cases that supersets are the most effective technique - both pre-exhaust and post-activation.

    The number one exercise for this area is dips. This will nail that spot. Next would be decline flyes. These two make for a nice superset that will just "light up" the lower/outer pecs!

    A. Yeah, I know exactly what you mean my friend! No matter how much I have improved my own shoulders over the years I am still fighting at every workout to make my delts look like the “melons” on guys like Dennis Wolf, Kevin Levrone and Phil Heath! I am glad you asked this question, however, because it brings to light the saying: “If you keep doing the same exact things over and over expecting a different result you must be crazy!” Luckily, this is something I figured out pretty early on in my career, but I am continually amazed by how many trainees are willing to keep pounding away on the same exercises week after week, month after month, with little to no results to speak of (or look at). Of course the standard DB, cable and machine side laterals that you have been doing work extremely well at building the side head of the delts for many, but you have recognized that in your case they are not getting the job done (kudos to you). With that said, before I give you a few new movements to sink your teeth into, I must point out that there may be other areas in your overall program that could also be responsible for holding back your gains. First, make sure your nutrition and supplementation are on point and that you are getting adequate rest. Also, check your form. Are you performing laterals correctly and in a way that truly targets the lateral deltoid? I have witnessed some extremely poor execution in my time; with so much swinging involved (to try and move heavier weight of course) that it is the lower back that takes a beating and not the shoulders! In addition, you can also try training shoulders on their own day, switching up rep schemes, lifting tempos, intensity techniques and more.

    Ok, now that my little speech is done, here are a few novel ways you can attack your lateral delts:

    1. Very Wide Grip BB Upright Rows: When most people perform upright rows they so with a narrow grip and bring their hands up to about mouth level, which rather effectively stimulates the mid-traps and front delts. However, if the grip is made very wide, meaning a little wider than the shoulders, and the bar is brought no higher than the level of the upper chest, this will strongly target the lateral delt heads.

    2. Leaning Single Arm DB or Cable Side Laterals: This is not so much a unique exercise as a different method of executing it that will change the resistance curve and thus stimulate somewhat different motor unit pools. The idea here is to grab a single DB or low cable with one hand, and with the other to grasp some type of sturdy support. Position your feet close to the support so that when you allow your non-working arm to straighten, you will be “leaning away” at a significant angle. Performing a side lateral from this position will increase the resistance at the top of the strength curve and force a deeper contraction than basic laterals.

    3. Incline DB Side Laterals: This is another unique form of side lateral that in a way is the opposite of the one right above. Again, you will be altering the resistance curve of the exercise, however, now there will be greater force needed to get the DB moving at the beginning of the movement. The result – a different stress for your CNS and the ability to exhaust even more motor unit pools. To perform this exercise set an incline bench at about 45 degrees. Grab a light DB (yes, I said light, as in 15-20 lbs) and lay down sideways on the bench. Keep the working arm almost completely straight and never let the DB come in contact with your body – think constant tension! Raise the weight slowly until your arm is at a 90 degree angle to your torso, and then fight the DB hard on the way down. Stop when you are about two inches from contacting the side of your thigh/hip.

    Note: An awesome superset that will totally trash your side delts is exercise #3 to failure, followed immediately by exercise #2 to failure (about 10 reps on each).

    DID YOU KNOW?

    *That recent evidence shows that phosphatidic acid can significantly amplify the anabolic effects of weight training through mTOR signaling.
    *That while NSAIDSs can reduce pain they may also interfere with muscle recovery and reduce the adaptations to training that are responsible for muscle growth.
    *That a recent study shows that women treated for cancer had a 50% reduction in relapse risk if they consume five servings or fruits and vegetables per day.

    ***If you find this post valuable please share it on your wall as well as with friends. At PNI we wish to reach as many people as possible to motivate, teach, and inspire towards a healthy, fit and athletic lifestyle! THANK YOU!
