Hello,

I've been hearing of people incorporating a mass gain specific program into their crossfit workouts.

How would someone incorporate this into the WOD's?

Justin!

Search the message board archives.

Read the faq's and start here.

buy and read "Starting Strength"

Look up ME black box and hatch squat program.

read about both the paleo and zone diets.

read AnthonyB's workout log from start to finish.

This should give you a good start.

In summary eat to gain mass, do CF, supplement with additional heavy lifting

My "mass gain" program consists of eating...and eating...and eating. I'm 80% strict Paleo and have been hammering the fat just before bed time. (Olive oil, nuts, coconut oil, Breyers.)

If you want to gain weight follow Anthony's advice. It is not more complicated than that.

My vote stands with Anthony. If you want to gain weight you have to eat more. If you are not gaining weight you are not eating enough.

Though then the question must be raised as to why you are wanting to put on the mass.. because there are certainly some sports where having that extra ten pounds, whether it is muscle or not, will make life harder.

Anyone willing to post that Excel document as a PDF?

I don't have Microsoft Office so I can't open it. I also don't have an account on the PM forum so I'm posting here. Sorry! And thanks!
