How To Gain Weight And Muscle

By

Vince Del Monte, WBFF Pro Fitness Model, Certified Fitness Trainer
and Nutritionist and author of No Nonsense Muscle
Building.

I just got back from Chapters book store and was flipping through MuscleMag International and Muscular Development, two hardcore bodybuilding magazines and thought, “The drug use among these guys is horrendous – they look like freaks. What have they done to their bodies?”

Maybe you agree, maybe not.

In my opinion, they’ve gotten grotesquely big in their arms and legs, and their waistlines, swollen with massive does of steroids and growth hormone, resulting in 40 inch waists!

Then I went on to read about these bodybuilders double-day split routines, extended sets, and hour after hour of training.

Flipping through those magazines reminds me when I was 22, just after I packed on 41 pounds of drug free lean muscle training the complete opposite way.

I told a buddy of mine, “I’m going to write a book on how I transformed my body because i think it’s a shame that very few people understand how to build muscle naturally.”

My buddy said, “You should get busy and start writing.”

So that’s what I did and the rest is history. In the past 2 years I’ve helped over 20,000 skinny guys (and gals) gain slabs or rock-hard muscle doing it the natural way.

I know my website is quite long, so I did a quick video of my transformation – the music is dramatic because this WAS one of the most dramatic events in my life – no longer being skinny.

I truly believe that if you’re training drug free, you need to take advice from someone who is doing the same.

You wouldn’t take money advice from a friend born into wealth, would you?

So why take bodybuilding advice from a source who was given muscle friendly genetics at birth?

I put together a 21-day $19.95 trial offer of my program – I know there a lot of scams and sheisters on the Internet and I am not one of them. Here’s how I can prove it to you…

Look forward to hearing about your transformation,

    Hi, Vince, thank you for your articles, are very interesting; Vince, I work and study. I want to buy the products; but, I think, when I can to read them, because is a huge information, numerous books, diets, etc, I am feeling as a boy in a chocolate factory: in shock. Can you give me any idea, I hope that you understand my position. Thank you.

    • Hernan,

      It’s quite simple.

      1. Download my program
      2. Read the book
      3. Watch the DVD
      4. Print off a meal plan
      5. start training.

      a little prep work but then you’ll be on your way – in the right direction.

  2. hey um, no one has been able to answer this question. does having sex, well alot of sex why lie? affect weight training? seriously if your an athlete and then lift heavy weights for muscle, does having sex take away energy only or does it have a more hardcore affect? I understand boxers and stuff, but what about weight training? or masturbating, i know it sounds ridiculous but I have not found a well backed up answer from no one.

  4. Vince,

    I appreciate your emails and the great information you provide. However, in a recent email addressing muscle soreness you stated: “You will find the best sore muscle treatment is to perform
    your next workout with lighter weights and higher repetitions
    to flush the lactic acid, a by-product making the muscles
    sore.”

    While I agree with your comments on how to get rid of soreness, lactic acid is not the cause of soreness. I refer you to a couple of articles that I have posted on my website (www.intervaltrainingguide.com/blog) that were written by highly respected exercise physiologists and biochemists, Robert Robergs and George Brooks.

    I think this is a common error in the way we speak in the fitness world about the term “lactic acid.” Whether it be out of simple ignorance or habit, I think we need to clarify the true benefits that “lactic acid’ provides in buffering H+ build up and providing substrate to continue with the glycolytic process.

    Thanks again for all the information

    Best Regards,

    Aaron Ivey MS, ATC, CSCS

  10. I thought I would share an article that supports what you say about cardio:

    The Low-Intensity Cardio Lie
    By Craig Ballantyne

    Once in a while, a study comes along that surprises me. For instance, I recently found one showing that cardio works for fat loss – as long as it is high-intensity cardio.
    Researchers at the University of Virginia assigned 27 obese women (average age 51) to one of three groups…

    1. The control group did no exercise training.
    2. The second group did five days per week of low-intensity exercise (LIE). (Gotta love that acronym… truly represents the “slow cardio lie.”)
    3. The third group did three days per week of high-intensity cardio exercise (HIC) plus two days per week of LIE.

    Instead of exercising for a specific length of time in every session – LIE or HIC – the subjects exercised long enough to burn 400 calories. So no group burned more calories than the others, though the third group burned the 400 calories faster in their three HIC workouts each week.

    And HIC kicked LIE’s butt! The study found that the subjects in the low-intensity exercise group did not lose fat. On the other hand, the subjects in the high-intensity cardio group lost a significant amount of abdominal fat.

    So, once again, research has shown that…

    • Exercising harder results in more fat loss in less time.
    • Only hard exercise burns belly fat.
    • Low-intensity cardio won’t help you lose fat.
    I prefer interval training to cardio for my clients who are on a fat-loss program. But the results of this study have influenced me to make a slight change in my recommendations.

    I now occasionally throw in some high-intensity cardio for my clients, usually as a 20- or 30-minute session done at a pace they can barely maintain for that length of time. They don’t like it, but it works. (Most of them prefer the interval training.)

    If you are interested in trying this, you can add HIC to your program up to three times per week. Just remember to self-monitor your body for any symptoms of overuse injuries – and, as always, TRAIN SAFE.

    I’ll give the last word to the University of Virginia researchers who stated, “The present data indicate that body composition changes are affected by the intensity of exercise training with HIC more effectively for reducing total abdominal fat and subcutaneous abdominal fat in obese women.”
