Weight Gain Tips
The basic principle of weight gain is, you need to consume more calories than you expend.To gain weight and bulk up, you have to do whatever it takes, and work as hard as necessary and you have to be consistent. Follow these tips for a healthy weight gain:

Exercise and Weight Lifting
Proper eating is of highest importance if you want to gain weight, but if you do not balance eating with weightlifting, all that gained weight will be fat – not muscle.
try working out 3-4 times a week. Your exercise should consist of muscle building exercises as well as fat burning activities.
Focus on the big exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bent-over rows, chin-ups, bench press, & military press. These are the exercises that will turn those extra calories into muscle and therefore help you gain weight.
Patience is a virtue , What you want is to see 1 or 2 pound gains at the end of the week. It may not seem like a lot but add it up. You easily gain weight at the rate of 5-8 pounds a month!
Sooner or later you will stop gaining weight and it is now that you should concentrate on eating even more. So, when you stop gaining for at least 2 weeks, start eating an extra 250 calories a day. Every time you see you haven’t gained weight for at least 2 weeks, add an extra 250 calories.
