How To Gain 15 Pounds Of Muscle In College

The myth. The legend. The dreaded Freshman 15. You have all probably head about the Freshman 15, the 15 pounds of unwanted weight gain that first-year college students often experience. While 15 pounds may seem like a bit of an exaggeration(most of my first-year classmates seemed to put on no more than 5-10 pounds), it still happens.

What confuses me the most is why don’t first-year college students take advantage of their first-year of college and try to purposely gain the Freshman 15, and by Freshman 15, I mean 15 pounds of muscle.

This is completely doable for men, and for women too if they desire. Just think about it, you enter college with free admission to the gym(which are typically better than most commercial gyms), and a meal plan which typically grants you access to an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Access to gym  + Daily access to buffet + No Parents = No reason to NOT gain 15 pounds of muscle in 1 year.

Seriously, I don’t why more guys at my school aren’t ripped. When I first entered college, I already gained about 20 pounds during my high school years, but I don’t understand why more guys don’t use this environment to their advantage. 

I understand its harder to lose weight in college, but for muscle gain, it should be a piece of cake. I know you all have to do is structure a decent training program and make sure you’re getting enough calories and sleep. It’s that simple, but the same skinny guys I knew my first year are still skinny because they didn’t take advantage of their environment.

How did you guys do during college? Muscle gain? Fat Loss? Let me know below?College

Get Ripped Fast – 10 Tips to Follow

If you want to get ripped fast you need to follow a set of tips. These tips are not your normal tips that you read in magazines but are instead tips that will guide you well into the future.

Tip 1 – Stop eating carbs. Carbs are not necessarily the enemy but they do make it harder for someone to lose fat. If you want to lose the maximum amount of body fat then you need to start eating the right kinds of carbs instead.


Tip 2 – Make sure you get enough aqua. The importance of getting enough water into your body can not be overstressed. There are many benefits to drinking more water including better looking skin and more energy when you go to the gym. Make sure to drink at least a gallon of water per day.

Tip 3 – Workout at least 1 hour per day. When you workout for any less than 1 hour your hormones are not optimized and therefore you will not be able to get the best results. All of the top fitness and bodybuilding models in the world exercise for at least 60 minutes per day.
