    Cardio (treadmill, swimming) won't help you reach your particular goal of gaining muscle.

    The basic concept: To get big, you need to eat big and lift weights. Eating big means to get in more calories than you burn.

    Doing all that cardio, especially at 2 hours a day, will burn up the calories...leaving you with nothing to build muscle.

    It's a process. Slowly work on increasing your work outs and weight training. As you train your body, it will respond and you will be able to develop muscle mass. If you push too hard and too fast, you will only not get results, you will "crash" and will have flu-like symptoms.
