I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment Best practice for beginners to gain weight
@Informaficker Good point. Pawan, could you be more specific about what you need? General advice on how to gain size and strength is in this answer, which I linked to above. Unless you are more specific than "how do I gain size and strength, this question is a duplicate of that one.

comment Does Muscle Fiber type matter?
You say you had been working in the 8-12 rep range previously, but was that with compound barbell exercises, or isolation exercises on machines?

comment How much protein and how often should I consume if my LBM is very low?
That's why I personally trust the bodyweight-dependent "rules" more than the ones that are bodyweight-agnostic. It's true that it may not be a linear relationship, but there are so many confounding factors that I think it's a fair rule of thumb. I'm fairly confident that gaining muscle mass benefits from a high protein/high % protein diet; the specific numbers...meh.

I think we should be examining these rules or sources individually, instead of as one conglomerate question. I think the "total protein" rule has contradictory assumptions from the others, for instance. Everything about this question boils down to that, no?

Where did these recommended rules come from?

@Informaficker I would be okay with merging this question with this user's other identical question, but this question is not the same as the one I linked to IMO.

You'll need to make it more substantial than that. :)

@Informaficker Your comment about somatotypes being outdated would make an excellent answer. MrBretten's answer is good as well, though I substitute "person who has always or generally been skinny" when I read "ectomorph".

comment Help to add muscle for a skinny guy with fast metabolism
This answer addresses some of the non-diet issues involved with gaining weight. Essentially: eat real food--a lot of it--and squat, deadlift, press, and chin three times a week as heavy as possible for sets of 5.

This answer to an essentially identical question should help.
