Being skinny and trying to build muscle mass requires exercising behaviors that promote muscle growth. Consider limiting sets of moderately sized weights to a minimum. Allowing for enough rest is also very important to let exercised muscles recuperate and strengthen. Cardio exercise should be performed sparingly to allow for sufficient availability of calories for muscle growth. Proteins must be included in one’s diet to facilitate muscle growth. Lastly, supplements further assist in muscle growth. Protein supplements or egg whites are essential nutrients for muscle growth. If one is a vegetarian, casein and soy protein are good substitutes. Drink plenty of water when taking supplements.
- When working out in order to build muscles, try to aim for intensity and do not only focus on volume.
- Each person has totally different body types and some may require additional muscle building exercises in order to gain muscle mass than others.
- Even if you have the best diet, best trainer, and best gym in the world, all of these will be worthless if you are not determined and patient.
“Since you are skinny, there is actually no need for you to worry about body fats and therefore, cardio workouts are not recommended for you.”
