Gaining & Losing Weight : How to Gain 5 Pounds in 1 Week


How to gain 5 pounds in a week? Not too many
people ask that question, usually people need to lose it. But I know for those of you, who
are really working out hard, maybe have a fitness competition coming up, you’d like
to put that solid weight on, and that’s what we’re going to talk about today. Hi, my name
is Jani Roberts, and I’m a Nationally Certified Personal Trainer, and a graduate of the American
Academy of Nutrition. When you’re looking at gaining weight, the most important thing
to remember is, muscle requires protein. The only way that you’re really going to build
that muscle quickly, is to make sure that you get that protein carbohydrate ratio in,
right in that 15 minute window after training. So, for example, lets say you do a heavy leg
workout on Tuesday, you train, from say, 10 to 11:30 in the morning. Right at the end
of that workout, between 11:30 and 11:45, it’s imperative that you take in a protein
carbohydrate ratio immediately, preferably in a liquid form, so that your body can break
it down very quickly, and utilize it. Remember, whenever you’re working out, you’re actually
tearing the muscle down. When you weight train, you’re breaking the muscle down. So right
after that workout, you got to put the protein back, so that the muscle can rehabilitate
as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you will over train, and the muscles will just get
smaller. We want the weight gain to come on, in muscle, right? Not fat, I’m sure of that.
So, make sure that you’re making wise choices with the food, quality carbohydrates, nothing
processed, whole grains; nuts, seeds, those types of things. With the protein, if you
can do a balance, lets say, between animal and plant, so maybe some whey and some soy,
that balance is going to be even better. This will keep your body more alkaline, versus
acidic, you’re going to have more energy, and you’re just going to feel better all the
way around. How to gain 5 pounds in a week? No problem. This is Jani Roberts, thanks for
joining.
