Get Jacked – The Muscle Building Guide for Skinny Guys Part II

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.

Eat More Sammiches – The Muscle Building Guide for Skinny Guys Part I

Alright, I did some searching online, trying to find a really good guide for the skinny guys interested in building muscle.  While I found some decent stuff, most of it was pseudo-intellectual bs, making things more complicated than they needed to be.  I even found a few articles on getting abs for a skinny guy.  Since when has a skinny dude ever had trouble getting abs?  They sport a six-pack all the time, hence the adjective skinny.

Throughout the next week or so, I want to leave all of you skinny guys with no questions whatsoever when it comes to building a sizeable frame, gaining strength and adding some quality weight to that skeleton of yours.

Lyle McDonald’s Bulking Routine

For a full, comprehensive guide on building muscle, check out my Bulking Guide

Lyle McDonald of BodyRecomposition is very well known for his in-depth and no BS approach when discussing nutrition and fat loss. He has published a total of seven books, all of which are incredible resources, especially when learning about proper dieting. To date, he has not published any books on training, but I suspect that day may come eventually.

Speaking of training, he has developed his own generic bulking routine which has its own sticky in the bodybuilding section on his infamous discussion forum. The program has been hashed out ad nauseam by the forum members and Lyle has referenced it in one of his training articles in which he discusses a few popular hypertrophy training programs such as DC Training and HST Training.
