Looking to gain some weight.

Hey guys.
So I've recently started training in Muay Thai at Fairtex.
I'm looking for advice for gaining a little bit of weight.
At the moment, I'm 5'7'' and weigh about 128lbs. I literally look like I'm pure skin and bones other than the fact that I've got SOME sort of muscle.
Is there anyway I can get a little 'bigger' than this?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a ton.

take an example from fat people, sit on your ass doing nothing all day and eat while doing so

then when you gain weight, excercise and turn it to muscle

hehe, seriously though, your probably young so your metabolism is high (or low, get that shit confused) so you will probably burn away fat like nothing

You're most likely not going to get that big, since I'm guessing your genetics are meant to keep your physique thin. But you can still gain muscle, it just won't bulge out like Arnold. As far as I know, push ups, sit ups, etc are some of the best workouts for strength. I hear these are good once those get too easy V-Max Weight Vests - Ultimate Strength Training Weighted Vest

thanks for the advice.
i'm not sure about the genetics, my older brother works out at the gym all the time and his body is a lot bigger than mine.
and yeah i guess that i do have somewhat a high metabolism. i've been trying to stuff myself during meals sometimes just to see if i gain any weight, but after i workout or something i'll lose the weight like nothing.
anything i should be eating that will help me 'muscle up' any quicker?

Don't take anything I say without researching it yourself, but I'm pretty sure foods like chicken, fish, dairy, nuts, eggs, and a LITTLE bit of red meat (too much is bad). Towards the bottom is Matt Hughes' diet- The Official Website of 9-Time UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes

Yeah that's kinda the same thing with me and my brother, I've got a naturally bigger build.

the secret to gaining weight is..........eat
you have to eat lots of food if you want to gain weight .
if you eat good food youll minimize fat gain aswell while gaining muscle mass.muay thai training should build some muscle up aswell especially if yu are doing things like pullups.if you want to weight train to gain some muscle mass then do compound lifts.(try googling rippletoes or 5x5)

You just need to keep your calories high... but make sure they are quality calories (whole wheats, EFA's, high protein). Keep your carbs and proteins high, and watch your fats. you will gain the weight...

keep off the cardio a little and just keep lifting hard. check out Quick Mass by ALLMAX nutrition, they have the carbs/proteins/fats dialed in pretty good.

Focus on eating 6 500-600 calorie meals a day consisting of lots of carbs, lots of protein, and some *healthy* fats.
