Default Help a skinny boxer out!

Alright guys, I'm a 24yo man that stands 6' and weight 145!! I know it sucks, I'm skinny. Although I am very VERY ripped. I train boxing for 5 days a week. 2000m jogging, 8x100 sprint, stretching and calisthenics for 20 min, rope-skipping, 3min round of shadowboxing, 3 rounds normal bag, 2 rounds heavy bag, and then 3 rounds of sparring. After that about 10 min of brutal ab exercises.

Now being the skinny guy that i am served me well in boxing as my opponents were/are much shorter then me, and me reach advantage is almost unfair to them. But now i want to move up, since it's about time I start gaining weight. And my plan is this:

1/2 GOMAD (Gallon Of Milk A Day) diet, combined with
Day A - Pushup variations, back variations, 3 slow reps, rest 10 second, 3 slow reps, rest 10 sec, etc. for 15 minutes each.
Day B - Leg raises, situps, squats with the same method.

I set myself to do this after more than a week of internet research. I can't lift weights or go full GOMAD since my coaches insist that it will do damage to my speed. Do you guys think it will help me gain weight?

If your goal is just to gain weight, then all you need to do is make sure you eat more calories than you burn off.

Looking at your training schedule it seems to me like you don't need to be doing any more exercise...

Unless you want to change the shape of your body and pack on some muscle, in which case weights is the way to go.

Personally, I don't think intelligent weight training would slow you down.

Eating more calories never did it for me. I eat like a mother*****, and i somehow manage to burn it. I was hoping that i can evade pumping iron and taking supplements with the above-mentioned diet and routine.

Eat more calories, and if that doesn't work then eat more than that.

Gaining weight is all about more calories in than you burn.

When you do pushups, make sure you have a pie-a-la-mode in front of your face, ingest some with each rep.....repeat.

Eat more. Or eat the same and do less.

The science is very simple.

You don't have any access to weights?

I do box competitively, but i can no longer sacrifice my looks just to have an edge over my opponents. I dont want to. I was really hoping for some feedback on that routine and 1/2 GOMAD thing. I guess I'll have to try to see if it works. Anyways, thnx guy for all your posts.

The routine will burn yet more calories, and the milk won't deliver enough calories to overcompensate.

Bon appetit!
