i know this subject has probably been beaten to death but i wanted to see if yall could offer some tips. i am 20 years old 6' and i am usually between 145-150, in my eyes that really too skinny for someone of my height. i am looking to get around 160-165, i train monday through thursday 2 hours a night and i was wondering if all the cardio in the training is hurting me or what and also i am a student in college so the food selection we have isn't that great, the food is usually bad and they don't give you a lot of it to start out with, so i can only eat but so much food from there, i have been taking muscle milk regularly and that has helped out some but i feel i have hit a wall with that also because i am seeing no more gains from it. i need some advice, what should i do??
Being that I am a college student as well, with a similar build, perhaps I can help you out. If you use meal plans and are on a budget for food, I can help. A great way to "trick" you body to building more wieght is to throw in an extra workout or skip one. Your body will actually get used to a steady workout schedule and thus, you run into a wall. Fooling your body might just give you that extra progress. Also, eat a high carb mean for breakfast. In simplest form, this sets your body up in the morning to run on carbs, and does promote fat build up. Since you will be working out, this fat will help your body recover and build muscle. If your budget allows, have a snack immediatly before bed, like a cookie, as this will be turned into fat overnight, again helping your body to recover from a workout.
These are just some cheap or free tips, I hope they are of some use to you
