To most of people, being skinny is a dream they all strive to achieve. Be it cutting down on food or hitting the gym with sporadic bouts of aggression, it is the end goal of many. They are envious of skinny people and often get irritated when skinny people do not gain any weight despite having ravenous diets. Well, being skinny can be a blessing in disguise as well. While most of the people you see in your neighborhood gym are sweating themselves out to lose a few pounds, there are a significant number of people who are struggling with their skinny bodies as well. Gaining weight is a major challenge for them as their metabolism matrix is way too high. Here are some tips for skinny men to gain weight and build body muscle-:
Scream Ice Cream
Ice cream has insulin, which fosters protein breakdown post-workout. You can have an ice cream snack once a day after your workout.
Lift religiously every day
While many will tell you to focus on gaining body fat before hitting the weights, that’s not how it works. The building up of the body and the beefing up of muscles need to happen simultaneously to ensure maximum benefits. Lifting every day will make you hungrier, which will ensure maximum intake of the right and necessary fibers needed to beef up the body and grow muscles.
Protein is mainly the most crucial source of muscle building. Skinny guys only have limited protein, most of which also gets exhausted in the breaking of hormones. Hence in order to ensure that your aggressive gyming regime has a palpable effect on your body, it is imperative for skinny guys to build and intake new proteins.
Concentrate focus on big muscles
Because you are skinny and have just started exercising, you should be cognizant of the body areas you want to gain muscles in. Some of the areas you can work on are the chest, back, and muscles since these are large muscle areas. Large muscle areas should be the initial focus areas and then one can seep down to other areas once ample muscle building has been done in these areas.
Don’t have carbs after working out
Having carbs after working out enhances insulin levels which in turn slows the breakdown of protein. A banana or a Nutella sandwich would add much more value to your gym routine than loading your body with crabs. This is another myth about food intake. Your Nutella only reacts to the right fibers. It’s not that skinny people can eat anything and gain muscles also. One needs to eat the right thing during the right intervals to ensure maximum muscle growth.
