Workouts for Skinny Guys

Looking for workouts for skinny guys? If you’ve stumbled upon this then you’ve probably come to the realization that those with the skinny genes need special training programs targeting their particular body type. You might see all the big and buff bodybuilders and wish you were like them. Maybe you’ve given up on ever becoming built and muscular. Then again, maybe you feel deep down that there has to be a way to help you get big and regain your confidence. Well let me tell you: there is a way and it doesn’t begin with your muscles. It begins within your mind.

That’s right. First you need to conquer your mind and take on the right attitude. If you don’t have the right attitude then you will fail before you even start. When you’re toiling away in the gym and you cannot lift one more rep, you will never get any further if you convince yourself you can’t do it. When you’re walking out of the gym and every part of your body is screaming at you in pain and you’re appalled by the thought of having to repeat all this for your next workout, you will never come back to the gym if you convince yourself that you can’t do it. Remember: mind over body. Conquer your mind, and you will conquer your body.

Once you’ve gotten the mental game sorted out, now let’s talk exercise. Here are some don’ts associated with workouts for skinny guys. First, ignore those two- and three-hour workouts. Then forget about hitting the gym six or seven days a week. Then do yourself a favor and stay away from steroids. And don’t even use any of these useless supplements except for a multivitamin and maybe a good protein powder to help with your protein needs. Workouts for skinny guys need to be short, focused, and efficient. After around 45 minutes of exercise your body experiences an increase in the levels of Cortisol, which causes muscle breakdown thus reversing your gains. You need to keep your workouts short and target the major muscle groups in your body with compound exercises that are known to help with serious mass gain.

Of prime importance as well is your nutrition intake. There are many good workouts for skinny guys that can produce very good results, but where most people fall short is nutrition. You need some serious protein, with some sources saying you need about 1 gram of protein for every pound of muscle mass. Then after all this you need to get your rest. Remember: you don’t build muscle while at the gym. You build muscle while you’re resting. That’s why you need to properly balance a good program of workouts for skinny guys with the proper nutrition and rest in order to maximize your gains.
