Ok i had my Re-medical today and i passed JUST.
I weighed 60.4KG wich was just enough to carry through to my PJFT.

What I Run Now:-

1.5 M = 9:51 [my personal best]
3 M = Around 22 minutes
1 M Pace = 6-6:20

My AFCO said that i want to be comfortabely 63-64kg and i want to be getting 9:30 and below in my 1.5mile. Thing is i run 5 days a week 2 times a day and doing that im struggling to gain weight as i go out running and lose it all. My metabolism is really fast. Im eating Lean Meat, Brown Bread, Rice, Pasta. But im still struggling to gain weight.

I do weights to try and build muscle as muscles weighs more; does anyone have a Weights circuit i could use? The max weight i have is around 45KG.
Is there any other last resort that will help me put on weight while doing that much C/V? Sorry ive asked this question before but the hardest challenge for me is putting on weight :dinner: THANKS ALL =]

well mate instead of water have lucozade dinner exchange brown bread for white bread, start having sugar in tea and eat more fatty meats. this will give u weight not muscle. muscle is hard to get if u dont constantly keep training to maintain it but fatty weight isnt and will stay there untill you work it off. u can have some of my fat if u like doc said im 5kg overweight on my medical ^^

Brownie.....my friend has the same problem as u he finds it really difficult 2 put on weight but he uses protein shakes and weight gaining shakes there high in calories and they also put on muscle instead of fat so u will see urself improving as well as getting bigger!............u can get them at holland and barrett or a good gym will usually do them!

eat more!

running 5 times a week 2x a day seems way to much. iknow they want u to be fit, but not a medal winning olympic athlete.

i do 1.5 miles on a monday,3or5 miles on a wednesday, 7or more on a friday
the days in between i do uper body stuff. rest one of the days at the weekend and do some sort of activity the other, hill walking, snowboardin. just somethin other than running.

if i trained like that id have to eat a horse a day to stop me from loosing weight.

just my opinion though, some people might tell u different.

6:00am - Bowl of porridge with a banana

9:00am - Meat filled sandwich

12:00am - Large bowl of pasta w/ either dolmio sauce or tuna & mayonaise

2:00pm - Meat filled sandwich

5:00pm - Whatevers being cooked; usualy chicken, meat pies, ham salads etc.

10:00pm - 4 rounds of toast [brown bread] with a banana

Might have to resort to protein shakes;

Sounds to me like you're running far too often.

5 days a week is too much on its own, let alone twice a day!

Cut it down to once every other day.

Brownie;
I've always found a good post-workout shake (PWO) immediately after training keeps me from dropping weight. Mine usually takes the form of:
50g Dextrose
20-30g Protein
2/3 tbs honey
3-5g BCAA's
3g Creatine

Basically though, you are not gaining weight because you are not in a positive energy balance (consuming more claoires than you are burning off).

If I've ever wanted to lose or gain weight; I've kept a food diary of absolutely everything I've eaten over a 5 day period for e.g. then added up my daily energy intake and averaged it out over the 5 days. You then know roughly how many calories a day will keep you at your present bodyweight. Then simply, to gain weight I would usually put in an extra 500 kcal each day and bang my weight would be up. Granted it would not be pure muscle, but a mixture of water, glycogen and some chub.

If you struggle to squeeze in the extra calories though, I would recommend:

It's certainly not the healthiest weight gain shake and many would argue whether they are of any use at all, but it's a very quick and easy way to bump up your total energy intake.
