How to build Muscles Fast for Skinny Guys

Believe it or not, if you are one of those skinny guys, you aren't alone. A lot of people want to be the celebrity of the gym. They all want to be the local legend that is talked about after every workout and mentioned while friends talk on the ellipticals. I was that skinny guy. I know as well as anybody. I saw the guy that was perceived as the big dude and as soon as I knew who he was I decided that would be me in a matter of time.
Although I don't think of myself as the big man, I definitely overcame the skinny man complex and I want to help you do the same. After reading this article, you should be ready to take the first steps in the journey from the skinniest dude in your gym to the biggest!

The Steps To Hugeness

1-Overcome The Anxiety Of Being Skinny

You are afraid to challenge yourself because what is challenging to you may be most guys' starting weight. The old adage is true and applies here. We all have to start somewhere. You need to get over this fear and just go for it. It can be tough, but the sooner you get over that nervousness, the sooner you will start succeeding.

2-Challenge Yourself Each Time You Work Out

Although the weights that challenge you may be warming up to others, you have to just go for it each time you train. I know how you feel. When I started, my max on the bench press was 95 pounds. Mr. Big was warming up with 135. That was my first motivation.
My first major goal was to get to where I used 135 on the bench. Once I reached that goal, my motivation increased tenfold. Find something like this or anything that motivates you and tell yourself it WILL happen. You will be amazed how you feel and how much progress you make once you hit your first target.

3-Eat Big, But Clean

This is a must, plain and simple. You have to take in lots of food, but that doesn't mean you can eat whatever you want. You don't want to be the biggest and fattest guy.
Egg whites, whey protein, chicken, tuna, veggies, turkey. I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea. I recommend 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight, 2.5 grams of carbs per pound of body weight, and healthy fats (fish oil, flax seeds).

4-Water, Water, Water

Learn to love it and drink a lot of it. It makes up as much as 70% of your muscle. Doesn't it make sense that if you want bigger and stronger muscles, you need more water? Drink about a gallon of water a day.

5-Stay Focused On The Task At Hand

Don't mistake this for being a jerk and ignoring everyone. If someone says hi, nod or say hi back and get back to work. The big man may look intimidating, but the fact of the matter is he is doing the same thing. That is how he got where he is now and that is how you will get to where he is.

6-Focus On Compound Lifts

They are the most basic lifts, but they are also the most important to the nation of the thin. Do not try to reinvent the wheel. Bench presses, squats, deadlifts, rows, pull ups, and dips all better be staples in your routine if you want bigness.

7-Get A Bodyspace Account
