Well today is the day you can put that skinny tag behind you & find out how you too can get ripped & have a body you can finally be proud of.
So Why Are Skinny People Skinny?
Before you can make a change you first need to understand just why skinny people are skinny.
Unless you have purposely been under consuming or simply starving yourself then in all likelihood you have a very fast metabolism but just what does that mean?
In simple terms your body naturally burns more stored energy even at rest than that of other people, this is amplified when you exert yourself making bodybuilding almost impossible if you don’t make allowances for it.
For skinny people simply watching TV or digesting their last meal can use up all their energy reserves otherwise they would naturally put on weight, so just imagine what happens if you suddenly go to the gym & try to build muscles!
Your body needs extra energy to perform the strenuous exercises you’re asking of it, without any available reserves it will take from the most convenient source “your muscles” so instead of building muscles & getting ripped you end up with smaller very sour ones.
Diet – Quality, Quantity & Frequency
Diet Quality: Eating the wrong food to bulk up is going to get you nothing more than a “beer gut” so to all intentional purposes you will be a fat skinny guy! What you need to eat are foods that will promote muscle growth please review our post – What to Eat to Gain Weight Healthily
Quantity: Presently you are only consuming enough calories to support your skinny body size, so you need to increase your caloric intake to provide enough energy to put on weight & allow you to get ripped. You can find out how many calories you will need to consume by using our handy Weight Gain Calorie Calculator
Frequency:Just as you are increasing the amount you eat you also need to increase the amount of times you eat. Eating a little allot is far better than eating allot a little. Try to plan on dividing your calorie intake into 5 or 6 smaller meals this will keep you energized throughout the day & make it far easier on you to be able to eat all this additional food.
Muscle Mass Workouts
To get a ripped form you need to push your muscles just slightly beyond their capabilities. First warm up the muscles to be targeted by performing 2 sets of 10 reps at 50% of your 1 rep max. i.e. If you can lift 100lb perform your warm up exercises at 50lb, now perform the same warm up routine on the opposing muscle group.
Once warmed up increase the weight or resistance to 80% of your max & perform 3 sets of 7 reps on both muscle groups finally increase the weight to 90% of max & perform 2sets of 5 reps each this should be really hard & push you to your limits. Repeat this process on the different muscle groups you are targeting. On following workouts switch equipment when working the muscles of you were using weights use resistance & visa verse. Never let your muscles become accustomed to either weight, repetitions, or resistance & always push them a little bit beyond your comfort level.
Muscles Need Water & Rest
Now that you are feeding your muscles with the nutrients they need to grow, & stressing them into growing you need to add the final ingredients Water & Rest.
Muscles are 80% water so if they are to grow you need to be well hydrated see How Much Water to Drink A Day to ensure you are correctly hydrated.
Rest is vitally important I know you want to get ripped fast but constant training will not help, you need adequate rest between workouts to let your muscles recover & grow. Wait at least 2 days even 3 before returning to the same muscle group.
