Can I gain lean body mass without aggravating fatigue?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 09, 2012 at 7:01 PM

I'm aiming to gain a decent amount of lean mass over the next 6 months. I haven't had a lot of luck with this because I'm very much the lean and skinny weakling build, but also because I deal with fatigue a few times a year that throws a wrench in the Crossfit/HIIT approach I've been trying. The last two times I tried a regular HIIT workout, I had fatigue flareups within 2 months that destroyed my progress.

One complication is that I usually go LC/VLC except for post-workout to manage my fatigue.

Any ideas or suggestions?

^This. Have a look at Leangains; plenty of people on here have combined Leangains and paleo with great progress in strength and body composition.

Where is this free manual you refer to? I see some web pages, I see an HST calculator, and I see some blank training charts, but no manual. I'm very confused by the calculator.

I love HST, one of the best training methods out there.

Enough calories? Need a surplus to gain that weight.

Have a look at Bryan Haycock's 'Hypertrophy-Specific Training.' I suggest this because of the regular Strategic Deconditioning: "reset"/layoff periods. The whole system is cyclic and slowly builds up conditioning and then backs off. It's not specifically paleo but their free manual is fully open to low carb and ketogenic renditions of their recommended diet.

The only way to build muscle mass is to be in a calorie surplus, period. You make gains out of the weight room
