Your Guide to Building Slabs Of Muscle In Minimum Time

Gaining weight can be a real challenge for skinny guys finding it tough. Not only do you have to consume truckloads of food, you also have to choose the right exercises that will stimulate maximum muscular hypertrophy. This problem is further compounded by our skinny genetics that slow down your muscle growth. If you've ever experienced any of these problems and are looking for a way to break through your plateau then I urge you to read your guide to building slabs of muscle in minimum time below.

Create A Plan to Gain Weight

The first thing you should do before building muscle is to write up a plan to gain weight. This plan will help you to pinpoint exactly what needs to be done in order to gain weight. This plan will also motivate you in times of procrastination and doubt, to create accountability as well as providing a sense of accomplishment. Without a plan your chances of successfully building muscle will be slim.

Consume Smaller, More Frequent Meals

In your quest to building a muscular physique we all know that we should be consuming a truck load of food however the problem with consuming large amounts of food is that it leads to discomfort, indigestion, insulin spikes followed closely by plummeting energy levels and increased chances of throwing up. The best way to consume large amounts of food is to spread your intake of food throughout the day with smaller meals. This in turn will allow you to comfortably stomach large amounts of food without the side effects mentioned earlier.

Your diet should include high protein foods such as chicken, salmon, turkey, ground beef, full cream milk, cheese, eggs, yoghurt, nuts, legumes and cottage cheese, high carbohydrate foods such as whole grain bread, brown rice, rolled oats and pasta as well as high calorie fruits and vegetables such as corn, beans, avocados, figs, dates, raisins, coconuts and prunes.

Incorporate Compound Resistance Exercises Into Your Workout

The best exercises for packing on muscle quickly will involve compound resistance exercises that recruit multiple muscle groups. By recruiting multiple muscle groups your body will stimulate a greater release of muscle building hormones than if you did isolation exercises which only target single muscles. Compound resistance exercises you should incorporate into your workouts include pull ups, push ups, chin ups, dips, pistol squats, all weighted variations of body weight exercises, deadlifts, barbell squats and bench press.

Use Supplements Wisely

For those of you who are taking supplements to aid their weight gain, one of the most important rules to remember is to take the recommended dosages. If you believe that taking more than the recommended dosage at any one time will improve your results even more well I'm sorry to say that the excess dosages will be excreted by the body. Your body can take only a certain amount of nutrients at any one time. Take for example protein, your body can only handle a maximum of around 50 grams of protein per meal, any more and the excess protein will be converted to energy or stored as fat.

Go to Bed Early

The last piece of the puzzle when it comes to gaining weight and building muscle is to get adequate rest. You can workout as intensely as you like, eat all the food you can possibly handle, take as many supplements as you like but unless you get enough rest you'll be severely limiting your potential to build a lot of muscle. The truth is most of the muscle building takes place when you're fast asleep, so keep that in mind if you decide to go out for the night.

Following these 5 tips is paramount to getting the body you deserve. Simply reading this guide will not help you pack on slabs of muscle unless you follow up with action. The sooner you start taking action on these tips the quicker you'll see results. Take responsibility and start building your muscular physique today!
