Many people tend to make muscle building more difficult than it should be, or make it more complicated than it needs to be. The process of muscle building, gaining muscular strength, and sculpting a head-turning physique is quite simple even when you’re skinny. However, simple is not synonymous with easy. If you’re skinny, you have more potential to get that ripped look faster than bulky people because the fat levels in your body are naturally low.
Because you burn a high amount of carbohydrates when performing strength training exercises for adding more muscle mass, you need to eat frequently. You should eat about 300 to 600 calories of meal that include carbohydrates 2 to 3 hours before you perform your exercises. Your meal may include oatmeal, potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, or other foods that contain healthy carbohydrates.
Eating a similar meal again after a strength training workout will allow you to add mass more quickly, because muscles rapidly absorb sugars more quickly after a workout. Consume 4 or 5 additional meals to enable your skinny body to build muscle faster. In performing strength training, you may need help from food supplements to supply your body with the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need because you may not get them all from the foods you eat. The right supplements can help enhance results.
You can bulk up faster if you use a combination of different workout strategies and stick to the same combination for 3 to 5 weeks. Such exercises may include quarter reps, explosions, bouncing, ladder reps, forced reps, super low reps, supersets, and stripping. Many skinny individuals can’t safely lift heavy weights, which is essential in adding muscle mass faster. Having a workout buddy or a personal trainer allows you to lift more weight because someone is there to personally help you if the weight gets too heavy. By the end of each set of exercises, you need to lift weights to completely exhaust your muscles.
Muscle is naturally difficult to build initially. A skinny person typically requires 4 to 6 workouts for each muscle group to build, and consume about 0.7 grams of protein per pound of your body weight. You also need to consume an extra 500 to 1000 calories per day. Once you’re able to build muscle, maintaining it can be a lot easier. You only need to perform one set of exercises to keep the bulk. You also need to consume 0.55 grams of protein per pound of your body weight.
