Guide to Build Muscles for Skinny Guy

If you are a skinny guy, probably you found yourself inferior when comparing yourself to beefier guys. Now, it is time for you to bulk up.

Most lean men who hardly gain muscles are those who do not eat and exercise right.

Here are ten principles to gain as much as a pound of muscle every week.

build muscles1. Protein to build muscles. The growth of your muscles would vary to how much protein your body stores. Your body always uses protein for other uses such as in making hormones. This result to less protein necessary to build muscles.

To address it, you need to add proteins faster than your body breaks down stored proteins.

2. Eat meat. Aim for about a gram of protein per pound of body weight in a day.

3. Eat more. You need more calories in addition to sufficient protein.

4. Work your biggest muscles. If you are a beginner, any workout will be considered intense for you and thus enough for protein synthesis. But if you have been lifting for a couple of months, you build muscles faster by focusing on the large muscle groups such as legs, back, and chest. Incorporate military presses, dips, bench presses, bent-over rows, pull ups, deadlifts and squats to your workout. Perform 2 or 3 sets of 8 to 12 repetitions, with rest for about 60 seconds between sets.

5. Drink shakes containing amino acids and carbohydrates prior to workout. A study in 2001 found out that weight lifters who drank amino acids and carbohydrates shake before every workout increased more protein synthesis than those who drank same shake after working out. The shake has 6 grams of essential amino acids and 35 grams of carbohydrates.
