As someone who came from having a skinny ectomorph body type, I can honestly understand how discouraging it could be when bodybuilding routines and diets do not work. There were plenty of times where I just figured that gaining weight was impossible for my hardgainer genetics. It seemed like no matter how much I trained, no matter how much I ate, no matter how many supplements I tried, my genetics simply did not allow me to develop the body I desired. Fortunately enough, I never gave up and have developed a system that has helped hundreds of other skinny hardgainers all over the world make physical changes equivalent to mine and beyond. I was able to gain over 40 pounds of solid muscle and decrease my body fat percentage for visible six pack abs all in less than 6 months. With that being said, here are 3 ways to gain weight fast for skinny guys.
- Following a proper muscle building diet
I believe that proper dieting is the most important step when building muscle. No matter how solid your workout routine is, if you do not provide your body with the proper nutrition, muscle will NEVER be created. It is extremely crucial that you know HOW MUCH and WHAT you should consume, but more important is WHEN to consume it. There are three stages following your workout routine that should be taken full advantage of in order to keep your body in a growing state, avoid muscle wastage, rebuild muscle fibers, and recover efficiently. Eating the right meals at the right times could literally double the speed in which you see results.
- Lifting with the correct rep range and rep tempo
Contrary to popular belief, lifting heavy weight with low repetitions has nothing at all to do with increasing muscle size. In fact, increased muscle size is achieved by training almost opposite of what most personal trainers suggest. There is a little something called sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, this is the type of muscle hypertrophy that targets actual muscle cell size. If and only if you train with the correct rep range and rep tempo will the volume of sarcoplasmic fluid in the muscle cell increase.
- Lift less, rest more
Another one of my special ways to gain weight fast for skinny guys is lifting less and resting more. Some of you are aware, others may not be, but muscle is not actually created in the gym while you’re putting strain on them. Muscle is actually created while you are resting and/or sleeping. The biggest mistake you can possibly make when not seeing results, is adding more gym time. If you are working out 5-6 days a week and not seeing results, it is simply due to insufficient rest and recovery. If you do not give your muscles the time they need in order to rebuild and recover, it will cause an inability to grow. Not to mention whether you may feel it or not, but if you are not resting enough, you will decrease your ability to perform 100 percent at the gym.
These are just a few ways to gain weight fast
