My guess:

beancod (or mostly bean-cod)

My prefix for gains

beancod; a variety of beans are good for muscle gain

My suffix is bled

beancod; cod is a type of fish and fishes are generally bled before cooking

My infix in veins

beancod; veins carry deoxygenated blood which also contains $CO_2$ back to the heart

My outfix is bed

beancod; bed is its outfix since it is split in two parts 'be' and 'd' around 'anco'

  • $\begingroup$ @hexomino Yes - it was a precarious balance between a fairly obscure word, a rhyme, and an outfix $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ TBH, I'm quite surprised myself @hexomino, it was a wild guess after an hour of searching. $\endgroup$
