I went for a run yesterday and while I was trying not to fall over, I thought about some trying to gain weight. I have never been over 155 pounds. I am pretty much spot on 150 everytime I get on the scale for the last 10 years. What if I made it my goal to gain 10 pounds? Could I even do it? Obviously, I don't want to just put it all in my stomach. That would be easy and it would be cheating. I would probably lose that weight as soon as I stopped overeating.
I also don't want to use creatin or anything like that mainly because its too expensive. Also, steroids are out for obvious reasons. I want to try to eat more often and healthily. I usually eat a Cliff bar at work everyday. Yesterday I had a PowerBar. I will probably do some overeating, but try to work it off quickly.
The idea is to gain 10 pounds of muscle mass. That is a crazy notion when I consider that is over 5% of my weight. I have toyed with the idea of the "biggest gainer" as a television show. I also have thought about writing a book about a character that puts himself through scientific experiments. This seems to be the next step.
