Weightlifting & Exercise/Muscle/Weight Gain


I am a male and in my mid twenties. I have been very thin my whole life. I am trying to gain muscle/gain weight as much as I can in the next two months and be proportional. Can you recommend a program for me assuming that I am available to exercise every day for the next two months. I will plan to continue after these two months as well.

I'm sorry this answer may be coming to you too late. The one thing you want to try for quick weight gain is a high calorie diet with limited weight training. Squatting, benching and deadlifting once a week each with high volume (sets x reps) would be the quickest way to put on weight/muscle in the shortest period of time.
