From the desk of Alain Gonzalez…
If you’re a skinny hardgainer who finds it damn near impossible to gain weight and build muscle, despite pounding down protein shakes and spending long hours in the gym each week, it’s not your metabolism…
And it’s certainly not your genetics.
So How Can You Achieve Fast Mass Gains?
By following the 3 skinny guy muscle-building principles below…
Note* These will only work if you’re natural and not enhanced. If you’re currently on performance enhancing drugs of any type, then please click away from this page right now.
Muscle is a byproduct of strength, and unless you’re getting stronger, you’re not getting bigger, period.
Seriously, when’s the last time you saw a jacked dude struggling to bench 135lbs? Never.
I’m not saying you should stay under 5 reps and max out every few weeks - or completely eliminate bicep curls and replace them with more squats and deadlifts - what I am saying is that unless you’re adding more weight or more reps, you’re not going to stimulate further growth.
Bottom Line: You don’t have to train like a powerlifter, but you should always walk into the gym with one goal in mind: do better than I did last time. If you’re a caveman like me, bring a pen and pad into the gym with you to record your lifts. If you’re a bit more sophisticated, use an app. Regardless of how you do it, track your progress!
If Monday, and only Monday is chest day, then your approach is broken.
Whenever you hear someone crying about how sore their quads are from “leg day”, just know that it’s not because they want HAM in the gym - it’s because they’re training their legs too infrequently.
You see, each time we stimulate a muscle through weight training, we induce MPS.
MPS is essential to the body's ongoing growth and repair of muscle tissue. If we can synthesize more protein than we breakdown, we end up with more muscle than we started with.
MPS is more than doubled at about 24 hours following an intense training bout. It then begins to drop back to baseline about 12 hours later.
So let’s look at an individual who trains his chest every Monday. He elevates MPS, by Wednesday it’s back to baseline, and it’s not elevated again for another 5 days.
Now let’s look the individual who’s training his chest twice per week – say Monday and Thursday. He elevates MPS, by Wednesday it’s back to baseline, and the next day it’s elevated again. It’s pretty clear to see that this individual is spending more time building and repairing muscle tissue than the guy on the low frequency split routine.
Now who do you think will build a bigger chest, faster?
What exactly does it mean to “eat clean”? Ask 10 different “experts” and get 10 different answers.
Truth is, there is no such thing as a “clean” or “dirty” food. The same way you’ll never drop dead from eating one burger, you won’t wake up fit from chugging a greens shake.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a big believer in following a predominantly whole food, minimally processed diet. But I am also a huge advocate of flexibility.
The notion that you have to “eat clean” to build muscle is not only subjective, but extremely misleading. This type of advice is what leaves people dazed and confused about why they’re not growing or getting stronger.
The fact of the matter is, it’s not just about what you eat, but how much of it. Unless you’re in a positive energy balance and consuming enough protein, fats, and carbs, you won’t grow.
Have you ever tried getting 1000kcal from broccoli and chicken breasts? It’s just not practical.
Bottom Line: If you want to grow, you’ve got to ensure you’re in a caloric surplus; consuming more calories than you’re expending. Following a diet that provides sufficient protein, dietary fat, and carbohydrates is critical if your goal is to build muscle. I don’t care how “clean” you’re eating, if you’re not eating enough, you’re not going to grow.
