If you’re Body-Mass Index is below 20, you might belong to a society called skinny people. Most skinny people look good for being slim and slender, but some skinny people need to build muscle to look a bit better than they already are.Iused to be skinny as well, but have decided to build some muscle in exchange of just 3 hours at the gym and a mild change in my eating habits.If you are like me, and want to add some muscle to your body, you can try out these 4 tips to get you on your way.
Workout At Least 3 Times A Week
It is essential to workout at least 1 major muscle group a day for 3 days a week. The reason why we only workout 1 muscle group a day is to prevent it from burning out. It’s also best to rest a day or two until the next workout. Especially if you’re just starting out since muscles usually ache after being worked out for the first time. Don’t worry about the next workout session since you’ll be working on a whole different muscle group, with exception to the arm muscles. If you are not a busy office worker or student, you might want to try out a 5-day workout.
Eat At Least 5 Times A Day
Calculate your daily caloric requirements to get yourself a good idea of how much you need to eat to put on some weight. Then evenly spread out the caloric requirements in 5 meals throughout the day. Make it as evenly spread as possible with 3 big meals, and 2 snacks. Make breakfast the biggest of the meals, and also eat pre-workout and post-workout meals during workout days.
Keep At It And Try Not to Skip A Meal Or A Workout
Follow the 10 commandments on how to build muscle for skinny guys and keep at it. Always measure your progress to maintain your energy levels and self discipline. It is essential to keep lifting heavy weights and eating more food, if you want to build more muscle. Skipping a meal will mean muscle loss and fat gain. Although skipping 1 day’s worth of workout won’t matter much, but if you do decide to just workout for 3 hours a week, like I do, it will mean skipping out 33% of your entire week’s of workout. So, if you do decide to skip a workout day, try to catch up the next day, unless you like strength loss.
