Welcome to the Building Muscle Guide where you will learn the most effective, proven strategies for transforming your body from scrawny and weak to strong and muscular - despite your poor muscle-building genetics or how many times you've tried before.
Here's the thing - not all information out there regarding building muscle and putting on weight is going to help you. There is a lot of misleading stuff that will simply have you running in circles and not really getting the great results that you're after - like 90% of guys in the gym.
This is about being in the 10% who DO get amazing results over time. You don't want to be like everyone else who spends endless time in the gym and on their diet yet only getting average results - and remaining with average physiques.
What you will learn on this site is from first-hand experience of my own dramatic transformation from a skinny pushover, to having the physique of my dreams and having my life changed because of it.
No, I'm not here to lie to you that you can transform overnight, as some sites will have you believe (likely just to sell you something) - this is the real information that has changed my body, and my life, forever. If you simply apply what has worked for me as a skinny "hardgainer", you're bound to similar or even better results and go from skinny to superman within months.
Stick to these strategies even longer than that (once you see results you won't want to stop) and you will reach your dream physique in due time - something that most people can only dream about (because they fail to realize that it IS within reach).
For those out of the loop, a hard-gainer is a guy with average muscle-building genetics who tend to find it difficult to put some meat on their bones and build muscle mass. You may train hard and try to eat everything in sight but never see the muscle building results you're after.
Well, as a skinny guy you've got to approach your training with a little more thought. You likely can't just train like that random big guy at your local gym and expect the same results. For one they may have some genetic (or other) advantages over you.
If you're one of these so-called "hard-gainers" and building muscle seems so frustrating difficult no matter what you try, chances are you have what's known as an ectomorphic body-type (skinny frame and high-metabolism).
If that sounds just like you, don't worry, you CAN build a significant amount of muscle over time, become super ripped, and create the physique of your dreams - but you've GOT to put a little more thought into both your training and nutrition plan like I mentioned. That's where this site comes in.
I hope that it helps you on the path towards peak health, fitness, and of course the body you've always wanted.
