Last week I discussed the way you need to eat in order to turn yourself into the un-skinny guy. Now knowing how to eat is all fine and dandy but without some sort of training involved, the extra kcals are not going to be partitioned in your favor; that is unless you want to look like the Michelin Man.
Train Unlike You Were Likely Advised
Yes, I said it. Don’t do what everyone is telling you to do because it’s likely not suitable for the skinny guy. Chances are if you are skinny, you are weak. If you are weak, you are still classified as a newbie. If you are a newbie you have no business doing Ronnie Coleman’s routine that he used during his contest prep for Mr. Olympia. He has many years on you, not to mention the plethora of extra help he is receiving. This is his full time job.
Now there is nothing wrong with being a beginner. You must accept where you are and start building your foundation from the ground up. Read my story.
