Questions and Answers
I want to gain a ton of muscle over the Summer, but as you can see im already a pretty advanced weightlifter. Should I start lifting super heavy with low reps or normal weight with 10-12 reps?What should I eat to gain more muscle but not get fat?
No, you can not gain 50 lbs of muscle.
I am ….. Lets say a much more advanced weight lifter. I am a bit older than you and have taken 5 cycles, yes of gear….
Lets say you have 3 months of summer. Legit without any illegal activities, I would say you could pack no more than 6 pounds of solid muscle on you.
Judging from your picture/question you are in high school and unless you started to lift when you first hit puberty, you have taken gear. For a high school kid you should not have that much muscle unless you have 6-10 years of lifting under your belt.
Now, if you want to experiment with steroids you could gain and keep about 20 pounds of muscle; assuming that you would start on a typical beginner cycle. If you want to take that route contact me first….. Please contact me….. I don’t want you to fuck up your body or your chance of becoming what you could become.

Back to your question.
“What should I eat to gain more muscle but not get fat?”
Protein, Creatine, Amino Acids… Especially BCAA’s, Fish Oil, multi vitamin if you’re not already. These are the standard supplements every builder should be on.
Eat big and healthy. You know what is healthy. I bet your parents have told you this for years.
let me phrase it this way, lets say i do everything right in gym what’s the most gain i can make with just 50grams of protein per day.
A person needs to increase calories in all macronutrients in order to see muscle gain, not just protein. A good starting point is a hypercaloric diet consisting of 50% complex carbs, 30% lean proteins and 20% healthy fats over 5-6+ meals per day. Foods should primarily come from whole healthy unprocessed sources that must be prepared at home.
As far as how many calories to consume, a good rule of thumb is to determine the BMR (basal metabolic rate) and multiply that by 2. So, if his BMR comes out to be 1900 cals/day, 1900×2 = 3800 cals/day. If this still isn’t enough, he should increase the caloric intake by 10% each week until he starts gaining.
Anyone can gain muscle with the correct diet and training program. Most people vastly underestimate or totally neglect the diet. His best bet is to become educated in nutrition; the most successful bodybuilders, powerlifters and other strength athletes are diet and nutrition experts and have learned how to manipulate the endocrine system through diet and training.
