***PNI'S COACH BROSER "DID YOU KNOW?"***
-That high sugar/high GI carbs can make you feel depressed. They will quickly increase blood sugar and serotonin, giving you a brief "high," but this is rapidly replaced by low energy and a "mood crash."
-That some evidence is beginning to arise linking the skin of an apple to muscle hypertrophy.
-That splashing yourself with very cold water causes your body to release nor-adrenaline, which can lead to increased performance in the gym or on the field.*CEO BROSER BUILT INTERNATIONAL www.broserbuilt.com*WRITER FOR PLANET MUSCLE/IRONMAN.MUSCLEANDFITNESS.COM*NGA PRO BODYBUILDER*PHYSIQUE TRANSFORMATION ARTIST/CONTEST PREP GURU

**PNI'S COACH BROSER'S Q & A!**
Q. I am extremely ectomorphic. My goal is to gain as much bulk as possible, but I don’t want to get too fat. I weigh about 155 and wish to get to about 185 in the next year. Should I be doing cardio along with my weight training?
A. I was in a very similar situation as you when I first started training, although I was even skinnier if you could believe that! I weighed a paltry 125 lbs when I first wrapped my hands around a barbell! So, in other words, I feel your pain, and can fully appreciate your question. As for my response…I would have to say no, you should not do any cardio at this time. As an ectomorph struggling to add muscle and bodyweight the last thing you want to do is burn more calories and further increase your already racing metabolism through cardio. You want every calorie you ingest to be pointed toward muscle repair and growth, even if you store a little added body fat along the way. The best way to avoid adding too much extra adipose tissue while gaining size is to make sure that you are eating a relatively “clean,” high calorie diet. Try to get the bulk of your calories from foods like steak, eggs, milk, chicken, fatty fish, protein powders, rice, pasta, potatoes, whole grain breads, fruits and vegetables. While the occasional pizza, ice cream, burgers and pancakes will not hurt you, make foods like this the exception and not the rule. Another important point about cardio and the ectomorph that I want to make is that in my experience, those with this body type tend to have more limited recovery ability than most - not as much in regards to individual muscles as to systemic recovery. This means that as an ectomorph, overtraining is more of a concern than with other body types. Thus, the addition of cardio on top of weight training is not a good idea for us naturally skinny types (at least in the early bulking stages), as an overabundance of exercise will make too far an inroad into our recovery ability, which will all but bring gains in muscle to a screeching halt! So, my advice to you is to train hard and heavy no more than four days per week, eat at least six clean, high calorie meals per day, utilize reliable supplements like creatine, beta-alanine, bcaa's, glutamine, etc, and sleep 7-9 hours every night. That is your simple and most reliable equation for muscle growth.

I've got one for you Coach.
I have always been skinny, my dad was 6'1" and 170 and I'm about 5'9"-5'10" and about the same weight.
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 distanceOriginally Posted by jimbuick
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!

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! LolOriginally Posted by jimbuick

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.

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.
