Are you too skinny and discouraged to try another mass building workout? Remember, quitting is not an option if you want to achieve something great. So, if you want to step up and give it another shot, here are our muscle-building tips especially made for you:

10. Don’t follow the professional’s routine.

First things first, you are not a professional body builder because you don’t have the body, the stamina, and the strength. In short, don’t follow what they are doing. Their routine will overkill you and you won’t get any benefits from the pro’s workout. Look for beginner and intermediate exercises (there are so many online) then list what you can do and stick with them.

9. Don’t rely on supplements.

Multivitamins, creatine, glutamine, and whey protein surely build muscles but they are simply supplements. Don’t expect to take them for a week and expect bigger body next week. You need to eat properly and put your body under training. Combine these 3 and you can look forward for faster results.

8. Eat every 3 hours.

Eat often and don’t limit your body in building proteins. Get the total number of calories you must take daily and break it down into 6. This gives you the amount of calories you should take every 3 hours. Don’t forget to include additional protein (at least 18 grams) in every meal.

7. Take carbohydrates after workout.

Your muscles tend to grow faster a day after working out. This means that you need to take carbohydrates during rest days. Carbs give you more insulin, slowing the breakdown of your body’s protein. Go for peanut-butter sandwich, banana, and sports drink the next day after working out.

6. Alternate your workout and rest days.

There’s no need to exercise daily. Go for a full-body workout today then take a full rest tomorrow. Muscles don’t grow during the workout but they grow once you rest. Weightlifting increases your body’s protein synthesis for 48 hours so focus on this then take a rest.

5. Drink a shake before working out.

Here’s a secret for a mass building workout: make a shake and drink it before lifting. Prepare a drink with at least 6 grams of amino acids, 30 grams of carbs, and 15 grams of protein. Drink it half an hour before lifting. This increases your body’s protein synthesis as you exercise.

4. Focus on your bigger muscles.

If you did some workouts before, then look for bigger group of muscles and work on them. Back, chest, and legs grow faster than other parts so focus on one of these 3 first. Then, add some pull ups, deadlifts, squats, bench presses, and bent-over rows in your routine. Beginners with no workout experience can focus on any muscle groups.

3. Eat big and drink plenty.

Take in plenty of food and water without stepping away from your diet. Don’t eat what you want but focus on veggies, whey protein, egg whites, chicken, and tuna. Drink plenty of water because 70% of your muscles are made up of water. Drink a total of gallon daily.

2. Eat meat.

Get your total body weight and dedicate a gram of meat per every pound of your current weight. For instance, a 150-pound guy should eat a total of 150 grams of protein in a day. Perfect sources of protein are chicken breast, cottage cheese, milk, eggs, peanuts, and roast-beef. Divide your daily calorie intake for carbs and fats.

1. Store protein faster.

The body uses protein for different functions (e.g. hormone production). This means that not all protein goes to muscle buildup. Solve this by taking protein once in a while. More protein allows your body to develop bigger muscles after working out.

As a skinny guy, you must first get over your skinny anxiety to do these tips. Avoid thinking that you can’t do this or that and focus. This may sound simple but your body will greatly benefit from it.
