Default advice needed for bulking up

i need some advice please
im 5'11" 145lb with 8%bf
i want to add around 15-20lb of quality muscle mass not fat
and still do my boxing training 3-4 days per week (usually 30mins morning runs,3-4 rounds jump rope-5 rounds of heavy bag and finish with circuits of burpees,pullups,push ups etc)..
whats the best thing to do ?..
just eat more?..train 3 days a week with compound moves for weights?..and if i do weights should i still do pullups pushup circuits on non lifting days?..appreciate any advice

Dont waste your time putting on weight if you want to fight 14lbs is a lot of weight and a lot of size in pure muscle but wont help you in the ring but if your not planing on fighting why not get lots of protein down your neck keep the weights heavy and reps low 5-8

The member has a simple request for advice on the above quoted text, keep it simple and not give advice on what weight class he should box at

Yo man if you are looking to gain weight which I highly suggest, seeing that you are 5'11" 145lb with 8%bf, thats pretty skinny? the 8% bf I am skeptical about thats really lean even for your attributes? how did you measure the BF?


any way to gain that weight it might be a little hard seeing that you are naturally genetically slim and lean

1. Change your diet you will need to consume more food per day than you currently are, I suggest 5 to 6 well proportioned meals per day

2. Rest periods needs to be increased greatly, your sleeping period needs to be increased and a nap or 2 daily will also help depending on schedules

3. Resistance training with power lifting techniques in mind, you need to structure your weight trainings with very basic compound exercises and a moderate to low rep scheme

4. the boxing training that you are doing will keep you lean in the mean time, depending on how hard it is for you to gain quality size in a reasonable time? you might want to adjust your cardio works a bit?

5. Do not listen to these internet coaches they do not speak from experience they speak from what they read on forums and their own misguided opinions

I am the exact same as you physically, just an inch shorter and 7% bf, and I have virtually the same routine as you. Why do you want to add on weight? I'm assuming your fast, given your physique, so consistent lifting will eventually slow you down to some degree. The calisthenics you do are the best; endurance is most important. If you want to add on muscle just lift like twice a week, but 15-20 lbs. of pure muscle is a lot, it would probably take 6-9 months to accomplish.

Consistent lifting will not slow him down at all and only lifting twice a week will do very little in terms of muscle building.

For just once I would love to experience the internet without reading stupid ramblings, and idiotic opinions such as the above quoted text
