Recently, I've decided to cast aside my hesitation and begin packing on the pounds by eating balanced meals in large quantities, coupled with the occasional whey protein shake. I feel that i'm gaining weight in a safe manner, but I also want to build up muscle mass so that I can carry my goal of one hundred extra pounds without any real health complications. Currently, I perform sumo-style leg raises and stomps for roughly twenty minutes, and I've found that they're an excellent way to target the glutes, hamstrings, and outer thigh muscles (vastus laterals). In addition, I'm also performing horse stance punches while holding a five pounds dumbbell in each hand, though I can currently only manage this exercise for five minutes before my arms give out.
So, does it sound as if these exercises are targeting the areas necessary for supporting one hundred pounds of adipose tissue adequately, or should I include other methods in my work-out sessions? I know that dumbbell squats are excellent for targeting the whole of the lower body as well as the back, but I am currently unable to attend a gym at the moment, and all that I have at home are dumbbells ranging from five to twenty-five pounds. Any advice would be very much appreciated!
