Muscle Building for Skinny Guys

As much as some people would like you to think otherwise, muscle building for skinny guys is not rocket science. So, you have some lousy skinny genetics and you can’t get over the fact that you’re very thin. You’re tired of going to the gym and seeing no results from your “workouts”. You would like to get bigger and more built so you can regain your confidence and feel good about yourself. Well, I’ve got something to tell you: start with your mental game.

That’s right. You need to have the right attitude if you’re going to become successful at building muscle. Before you turn on me and say “Thank you Captain Obvious”, I want you to stop for a second and really try to gain an appreciation for the role of attitude in bodybuilding. When you’re pumping that iron and start to think you will die before squeezing another rep, telling yourself that you can do it will get you that extra rep. When you’re done with your workout and are so tired that you’re wondering how in the world you’re going to come back next time from the pain, telling yourself you can do it will help you come back next time. Muscle building for skinny guys like you starts with fixing your attitude first so you could move on to the more practical stuff.

Once you’re laser focused and at your most positive attitude, then think about your workout. But first, let me say a few things to your face. Throw out all those three-hour, six-day-a-week workouts you might have done or ever thought about doing. Throw out any idea of using steroids. Even throw out any useless supplements you might have, except for a good multi-vitamin and some protein shakes. All you need is a willing attitude and the right workout routines that support muscle building for skinny guys, routines that do not require spending any additional counter-productive time past the first 45 minutes of your workout when your cortisol levels shoot up and eat your muscles.

You need routines that are efficient, safe, and that will target every muscle in your body every day. You need to be stimulating most of your body muscles during every workout. After performing the right routines, then you go and get some heavy amounts of protein to eat and get some rest. Muscle building for skinny guys is different from muscle building for those who are natural muscle gainers. You need to keep your workouts short, eat the right food, and get enough rest. Remember: you don’t build muscle while at the gym, you build muscle while resting.
