Of course you do. Which is why teenagers pack on mass like a guy on gear.

Its why women don't add mass like blokes. They have like a tenth of the amount of testosterone.

Pretty basic question from me, I know the basics but I'd just like to see if you guys have any ideas. I'm 5'11'', 10% body fat and about 72kg. I'm pretty much just lean muscle, but I need to gain some weight for rugby. I have about 4-5 months before next season starts, and am doing plenty of training on my own/as part of an academy team. I'm also trying to increase my food intake, and I have a pretty good diet.

What I'd like some opinions on is:

1: Any particular exercises I should be concentrating on.
2: Any specific foods I should be eating.
3: Supplementing - should I be doing it, how much etc
4: Whether I should concentrate mainly on heavy weights/lower reps, or should I keep doing light weight/high rep days?

Thanks guys.

what position do you play? i assume you're not a forward b/c you're vey undersized for a prop, hooker or backrower. Bit small for a flanker as well.

I've been playing halfback the last few years but this year I moved out to inside centre predominantly, and that's where I'm hoping to start next season.

Concentrate on compound lifts. Deadlifts, squats, and bench.

essentially that, focus on bigger muscle groups, and make sure you're working with a rounded program. Had a few mates try to bulk up for rugby and essentially just worked their chest way too much.

try the stronglifts 5x5 program

Workout A

Squat 5x5
Bench Press 5x5
Barbell Rows 5x5

Workout B

Squat 5x5
Overhead Press 5x5
Deadlift 1x5

now i've never tried i although i'm probably going to start it in my cricket off season to get back in shape seeing as i've started to stack on a few kg's this year.

I started regularly doing pullups at the start of July five/six days a week. I started at max 4 pull ups

By the start of November I could do a max of 15 at one go. I think for July and August I was mainly doing one set maximum, so from 4... increased 1 per week until 9. Then I got advice to do my pull-ups in sets instead, so instead of 9 in one go I started doing 5/5/5/x... Then it lead to 6/6/6/x then 6/6/6/6/x then 7/7/7/7/x... My max total was 33 I think 7/7/7/7/5. Around this time I tried doing one set again for the heck of it and I did 14 on one day and 15 the next day.

I'm in an exam period right now so I don't want to overstress my muscles so I'm doing 6/6/8 for a total of 20.
