Gain Weight and Strength
Gaining weight is easy, gaining muscle is not so easy. At Reflex Nutrition we’ve been working with bodybuilders for the best part of 15 years now, it’s fair to say we have a very good idea of what works and what doesn’t. Follow our beginner’s quick guide below and you’ll see results in as little as two weeks. And if you are serious about gaining weight, by weight we’re talking about muscle not fat, you’ll need to concentrate on getting a serious amount of protein into your diet.
Step 1: Train 3-4 times a week with weights and limit cardiovascular work. The weight training program will need to focus on the larger movements like Bench Press, Squat, Deadlifts and Bent Over Rows as these exercises stimulate the fastest growth and strength.
Step 2: Eat 6 meals a day which are high in protein, in fact we recommend that you ingest 2 grams of protein for every kg. e.g if you weigh 75kgs you need to consume 150grams of protein every day. Ensure each meal contains healthy whole grain carbohydrates. Absolutely ensure that each meal provides healthy fats. The simplest way to do this is ensure you eat your 3 square meals each day, Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Then supplement the remaining 3 meals with products like Instant Mass, One Stop and Instant Whey, it’s very easy.
Step 3: Prime your body for your training. Arguably the most potent supplement on the market today, we highly recommend using Performance Matrix prior to training. It’s a product that’s completely based on science that will increase your strength, encourage new muscle and make your workouts something to remember.
Step 4: Never miss the “Golden Window of Opportunity”. This is the time frame immediately after your workout that science says is without doubt the best time, the golden opportunity, to take one of the following supplements, Growth Matrix or Instant Mass.
Step 5: Guarantee your body a daily supply of essential vitamins, minerals and fats. These are not always easy to obtain from your diet unless you really are eating your 5-6 portions of fresh fruit & vegetables. Even then there are no guarantees. Therefore we absolutely recommend the use of our state of the art multi vitamin called Nexgen. After which we recommend that you ensure you’re eating some fish a few times a week or supplement with our high quality Krill Oil to ensure your body receives a first class source of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Why not take advantage of one of our product stacks to give your routine a kick start.
Our Perform and Grow stack will cover your pre and post workout requirements. To add more calories to your diet, we would recommend Instant Mass or our Progen meal replacement product. Both contain an organic source of low GI carbohydrate.
