Asking for suggestions to put on some healthy weight;
Here’s my situation, I’m 5’11" still growing and weigh in at 125lbs MAX
I’m at a ridiculous 7% body fat. There’s plenty of people lower than that, but most are weight lifters or year round runners/sprinters. I do run, but I’m a ballplayer not a runner, and only do it for the conditioning aspect.
I can’t find a good way to put on weight.
I don’t think I ever eat any less than 3000 calories a day.
I’ve been trying a peanut butter sandwich before bed too, but nothing works.
I was gonna do protein shakes but my doctor (has a couple D1 ballplayers for sons) was very much against it saying I would cramp up a lot. Which wouldn’t be good since I try and do baseball work 5 days a week (hitting and/or throwing)
The doctor said to weight lift.
Same day I was also at my physical therapist and asked his suggestions.
He didn’t want me to touch anything with much weight.
He said therabands were the way to go (which I use). But I know those will only tone and not build mass.
At some point I’d like to get to idealy 145-150. 140 or even 135 for this coming spring.
I’ve got pop at the plate, and (from observations of people my age) an above average fastball (excluding those abnormal gianst at 6’2" and 190).
It’s somewhere in the mid to lower 70’s.
I know an extra 20 pounds behind the ball would definately help
All suggestions welcomed,
Thanks in advance
