Weight Gain Exercises to try at Home
I always get questions from my readers on whether we need to go to gym inorder to gain weight or not. If you are severely underweight, I suggest you not to hit the gym too early. Try some appetite boosting pills whether it is natural or allopathic at first. Once you are approaching the your healthy weight, hit the gym.
Here are some exercises which you can try at your own home without having to leave for the gym.
The reason why I say this is because, if you’re severly underweight, you should be actually trying to save your calories from the food intake rather than burn it out. Your body desperately needs the calories you are in taking now. Infact, it is only on a shortage of calories (hence you’re underweight). Only if you are getting enough calories in excess (rather than what your body utilises for functioning) you will be able to gain weight.
So concentrate on saving your calories rather than spenting it (especially in a gym) while you are severely underweight. Once you have gained enough, you can hit the gym and engage your muscles.
Why is it necessary to exercise even if you are on a weight gain diet?
Once you start gaining a few pounds you can see that in the absence of the exercises you will have fat deposits in the odd parts of your body. For me, I started seeing the difference with a bulging stomach. It was disgusting because I honestly dislike belly fat! Plus, exercising regularly helps you increase your appetite to a good extent. In short, exercises help in toning the body the right way it should be!
Those people who are on a weight gain journey should follow resistance training exercises also called for strength training or weight training exercises are helpful in building strength and size of the muscles in our body. These exercises do not burn as many calories as the cardio workouts. Hence, it is the best for people like us.
