Why is it so hard to gain muscle mass fast? No matter how hard you try, it always seems to end in frustration. And what's with all these guys who hardly ever work out but are bigger and more muscular than you … man, that's not fair!
Being a skinny guy myself I know how frustrating it can be to follow what the bodybuilding magazines tell you, but end up so frustrated as I saw little in the way of results.
How great would it be to gain muscle mass fast and transform your body within say six months? Do you think that's possible?
A lot of people say it can't be done in six months, but it really can. The trouble is, in most instances, folks are not doing the right workout for their body type, as well as a few other common mistakes, like wrong diet and poor rest and recuperation.
Here I'm going to give you an excellent skinny guy workout that will help you to pack on the pounds and gain rock-hard muscle mass fast, but first a word on your diet.
Simply put, the big secret for skinny guys to gain muscle mass fast, along with the workout I'm going to show you, is the habit of eating well … and when I say "eat well", I really mean "eat BIG ". Consuming large amounts of quality calories and protein-rich foods on a regular basis is the single biggest reason that hardgainers and ectomorphs fail to gain muscle mass fast.
Without going into diet specifics here, you should be looking to consume on average upwards of 3,000 calories per day, spread over 5-6 meals (eating every 3 hours or so), consisting of lean meats, tons of fruit and vegetables, and good quality carbohydrates like pasta, potatoes, wholegrain rice, and the super-fuel that is oatmeal.
This regular intake of food and energy will keep your muscles fed while you're taking care of business in the gym working out. Speaking of which, here is a sample hardgainer workout for skinny guys looking to gain muscle mass fast.
