Are you looking to gain weight and build muscle mass? If so, then you need to make sure that you are using the right personal training workouts.
There are a lot of different workouts that you can do to gain weight and build muscle mass.
However, not all of them are created equal. In this article, we will be discussing seven personal training workouts that are great for helping you gain weight and build muscle mass.
Squats are one of the best exercises for gaining weight and building muscle mass. They work your entire lower body, including your quads, hamstrings, and glutes. They also help to increase your core strength and stability. Squats can be performed with a barbell, dumbbells, or kettlebells. If you are new to squats, it is best to start with bodyweight squats. Once you have mastered the bodyweight squat, you can move on to using weights.
To do a bodyweight squat, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands at your sides. Slowly lower yourself down by bending your knees, and keeping your weight in your heels. Once your thighs are parallel to the ground, press back up to the starting position.
Deadlifts are another great exercise for gaining weight and building muscle mass. They work all of the major muscle groups in your back, including your lats, traps, and erector spinae. They also help to increase your testosterone levels, which is important for gaining muscle mass.
The bench press is a great exercise for targeting your chest muscles. To perform a bench press, lie down on a flat bench and hold a barbell in your hands with your palms facing away from you. Lower the barbell down to your chest and then press it back up to the starting position.
To do a deadlift, stand with your feet hip-width apart and your hands at your sides. Bend down and grip the barbell with an overhand grip, keeping your back straight. Keeping your back straight, drive your heels into the ground and stand up, pulling the barbell up to your hips. Lower the barbell back down to the ground and repeat.
Pull-ups are a great exercise for targeting your back muscles. To perform a pull-up, grip a pull-up bar with your palms facing away from you and your hands shoulder-width apart. Hang from the bar and then pull yourself up until your chin is over the bar. Lower yourself back down to the starting position.
Rows are a great exercise for targeting your back muscles. To perform a row, grip a barbell with your palms facing your legs and your hands shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees and lower your hips so that your torso is parallel to the floor. Row the barbell up to your chest and then lower it back down to the starting position.
- Military Presses
Military presses are a great exercise for targeting your shoulder muscles. To perform a military press, grip a barbell with your palms facing away from you and your hands shoulder-width apart. Press the barbell above your head and lower it back down to the starting position.
Dips are a great exercise for targeting your triceps muscles. To perform a dip, grip the handles of a dip station and hang from the bar. Bend your knees and cross your ankles behind you. Lower your body down until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle, and then press yourself back up to the starting position.

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years. He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer. I would highly recommend Chad. He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.
I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.
When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!
I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!
Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!
I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!
I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
