Weight Gain Blueprint Claims
Jeff claims that with the Weight Gain Blueprint, he managed to pack on 38 pounds of solid muscle mass within 19 weeks and this is backed up below.
You must be thinking, 38lbs in 19 weeks? You serious?
To get really technical, I do not think it is 38lbs of pure muscle mass as well. In fact, it’s a combination of muscles and fats.
However, do note that gaining fats is unavoidable.
In fact, it is counter productive to try to gain muscles and lose fats at the same time.
But of course, you can minimize your fat gains with various ways.
The Weight Gain Blueprint Program Explained
I’m sure you’re thinking: so what?
I don’t care, I just want to know how can the program help me?
This program is essentially a detailed and structured action plan where you can follow everything to a T and gain muscle mass and weight effectively.
That’s its main benefit, at least for me: just follow and do, and the results will come.
Ok, enough talk, let’s dig into the program!
1. Weight Gain
The Weight Gain Blueprint starts off by laying out all the most common mistakes skinny guys make, so that you would not be wasting your time and effort committing those mistakes.
It then goes on to cover the section on training for muscle weight gain.
The effects of hormones, best weight training exercises and the muscle building workout are all explained.
I like the section on the muscle building workout, because it explains all the fundamental principles of an effective workout (e.g. training frequency, principles of muscle growth, rep speed, warming up, cycling your workout etc)
In the Weight Gain Blueprint, Jeff provides a total of 3 workouts for weeks 1-8, 10-17 and 19-26. Weeks 9, 18 and 27 are all rest weeks. These workouts can be cycled indefinitely.
The schedule, workouts, rest periods, reps, sets, etc have all been designed to help you get the best out of the workout and prevent overtraining.
Printable workout logs are also provided for your tracking convenience.
This is important because without tracking, you wouldn’t know your progress! And you need to track to ensure progressive overload!
The next 2 chapters of the Weight Gain Blueprint are dedicated to nutrition and supplements.
Under the nutrition chapter, Jeff first explains the “what” of nutrition – impact macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats), fiber, water and alcohol have on our muscle gain results and how to manipulate them.
He then moves on to explaining the “when” of nutrition – meal frequency, morning nutrition, bedtime nutrition, pre-workout nutrition, post-workout nutrition.
Of course, he teaches you the “how” of nutrition as well – calculating your daily food intake (for your convenience, he has provided a calorie calculator) and how to plan and prepare your diet and meals.
Finally, he provides 11 meal plans to have you well covered.
This chapter covers the most relevant supplements for muscle weight gain – whey protein, creatine, glutamine, essential fatty acids, multi vitamin, calcium, vitamin c, carb drink, fiber –
and Jeff teaches you how to incorporate them.
1.4 Rest & Recovery
In this chapter, Jeff shares his personal tips on resting and recovery and how to prevent injuries.
Note: this is an important section! Imagine training hard for 2 months, then getting your shoulders whacked and sitting out on the sidelines for 3 months.
All your work in the previous 2 months would have went down the drain!
a detailed outline or plan of action: a blueprint for success
The Weight Gain Blueprint is exactly that.
I like it because it doesn’t contain much fluff, is well structured and is very clearly explained.
I hate it whenever I have to spend extra time understanding how a product I buy works and having to test here and there just to familiarize myself!
Luckily, the Weight Gain Blueprint isn’t that.
There is a quick start guide to orientate you, and once you understand the principles behind muscle weight gain, you can use the done for you meal plans and workout plans and start immediately!
There are tools provided (such as the calculator) to help save time and also miscellaneous resources such as the muscle building food cheat sheet, daily bulking schedule and the weight gain progress tracker to make your job much easier.
What Is Lacking
The Weight Gain Blueprint covers everything you need to know about gaining muscle weight. However, the one thing that I feel should be included is more information on incorporating cardio into the workouts.
Not to worry, because a 15 min run once/twice a week is good enough to minimize fat gain while building muscle and gaining weight, because in this phase, your focus should be on gaining muscles and weight.
Too much cardio will only hamper your progress, though some is still necessary.
The Complete Package
This program comes with my highest recommendation for skinny guys, especially beginners.
Because it is very comprehensive yet well structured and easy to follow, a quality many other programs just do not possess.
In other words, this will help you form a solid foundation.
This forms the justification for my recommendation, and so I really hope you can benefit from it as much as I did!
