From Skinny to Muscle  -  How Do You Get There?

How do you get from skinny to muscle? Some people have very fast metabolisms and are naturally very thin, which makes it hard for them to gain weight and look healthy. They remain thin no matter what type of food they eat. Many of these people would like to gain weight and look full and healthy but they might not be able to find the right training program to help them. You thought losing weight was hard, try having to eat eight times a day so you don’t let your muscles break down. If you are one of these people this is what you will need to do. Let’s talk about what can help you get healthier.

First, let’s talk about exercise. Going from skinny to muscle depends on how you approach and execute your workouts as well as how you manage your nutrition and rest. As for workouts, forget about exercising for a continuous two or three hours, for six or seven days a week. That works for people taking steroids or people whose bodies are naturally muscular, and you are neither. But it’s okay, you just need to adapt your workout to your body type. Your workouts need to be quick and not last longer than 45 minutes to avoid the harmful effects of Cortisol on your muscles. To go from skinny to muscle you also need to perform more compound exercises which target multiple muscle groups at the same time as opposed to isolation exercise which don’t really contribute to muscle gain as efficiently.

After your workout, make sure you get the right nutrition. You need to eat every 3-4 hours to keep a continuous flow of protein to your muscles. This will help your skinny to muscle transition by keeping your muscles in a constant anabolic state and preventing muscle breakdown. If you have the right training and nutrition regimen down, then do remember that you don’t build muscle while you exercise, but you build it while you are sleeping or resting. That’s why you need to be uncompromising about getting your proper rest.

Of utmost importance as well is your mindset. Gaining weight takes work and going from skinny to muscle requires discipline and dedication. That’s why a positive outlook is crucial in helping you achieve your goals. If you don’t believe you will succeed then you fail before you even begin. But if you maintain a positive attitude then that is what will unlock your true potential and help you get big, along with the appropriate workout program.
