Eat more and lift more.

Honestly, though, you don't need weight-lifting to gain mass. Over the summer I wasn't able to go to the gym and thus didn't work on cardio a lot, but did a ton of pushups and pullups and ate larger meals, and gained mass from it.

hmmm....well lifting hevey weights in boxing usally follows with lifting smaller weights in order to lose fat and gain muscle around your arm and leg area. that what i do to get lean and not too bulk....but i don't know about just lifting hevey weights. if you metabolism is high as you say then making middle might be a little hard. (not to hard but it will be tough) i think you might just make it to welterweight and if you do make it to middle it will at the lowest weight. until your metabolism slows down.

how the **** can you gain weight by lifting heavy weights?
It all has to do with eating, if you eat without lifting weight you will gain fat, if you eat and lift weight the proteins you eat will become muscle, al the fats you eat will still remain fat even if you lift weight so when you are bulking try to avoid fat.

gaining mass has two parts: working out and eating. you can't make something out of nothing.

Dude muscle weighs more than fat. So if you gain muscle by lifting weights that means you are going to gain weight. The only way you are not going to gain weight w/ weight lifting is by doing some kind of cardio w/ the weight lifting.

if you lift weight without eating more kcal then u use u are not gonna gain anything. does extra muscle weight has to come from somewhere.
