Many of us that are smaller in stature tend to look at those who gain muscle naturally and without too much difficulty with a little bit of envy!.
We may have a difficult time gaining muscle as a result of genetics and the fact that our metabolism may be running rather quickly, keeping us from putting on too much weight naturally.
You might be surprised to learn, however, that being naturally skinny does not predispose an individual to being that way for the rest of their life. As a matter of fact, it is possible for them to put on muscle naturally, the same as it is possible for somebody who is larger in stature to put on muscle.
In reality, you need to get back to basics and you need to get to the core of the problem that is keeping you from gaining muscle. Even if you go to the gym regularly, you may not be doing so in a way that is truly going to put the muscle on you that you desire.
Here are three different things that need to happen in order for anybody to gain muscle naturally and to gain it quickly.
The first thing that you need to do is to cycle your way through the exercise. Exercise hard whenever you are at the gym and make sure that you are exercising to complete failure, using multi-joint exercises. Do not think that more is better in this regard, tax your muscles to the maximum and then move on to the next exercise. You should then rest for a minimum of four days or until you feel completely recovered before going back to the gym and doing it again.
The second thing that you need to do if you’re skinny and trying to gain muscle is to eat. Do yourself a favor and skip all of the protein shakes and other forms of dead protein. Feed your body with as much natural food in its raw state as you possibly can during the day.
This is where you will get the true protein that you need to build muscle in the form of amino acids and enzymes.
The third thing you need to stick with it for the long term. There is no such thing as a slow gainer, only those who are slow to change their lifestyles in order to gain muscle.
Stick with the program and you will begin to notice differences in the way that you feel and look rather quickly.
