1. High Rep Squatting

High reps, especially in the 10-20 rep range, this is phenomenally effective for muscle growth. The “20 rep” barbell squat workout and others like it is tried and proven to work excellent for mass

2. Eating 5-6 Times A Day

Small meals that digest quickly. Many people will LOL and say this is “broscience”. Those people are skinny eunuchs who come from weak blood. Bodybuilders have done this for decades because it WORKS

3. Eat “full fat” meat

None of that “lean protein” nonsense; Chicken thighs, 80/20 beef, fatty steaks, eggs with the yolks, cook your food in butter. Gets you more calories, tastes better, and digests easier as well

4. Hamburger patties

You can buy them in bulk, cook them quickly, season them however you like, they work for practically any meal, and incorporating them into meal prep is simple as well
