How To Become Muscular For Thin People

So you are fed up of people shoving you around and having sand kicked in your face because you are thin and skinny. You have made a resolution to get beefy and muscular. To achieve your goal of packing muscles on your frail body frame, you have signed up for a gym membership and have been working out regularly. Weeks and months have passed by and you are not getting the results that you want. Why is happening? Why is your muscle building effort going nowhere?

Well, take heart my friend for you are not alone because most people are not doing the right things in the gym to get muscular. So here are two surefire ways for you to become a muscular beach hunk and to impress the girls.

Muscle mass exercises - If you want to gain muscle mass all over your body, you MUST include The Squat and Deadlift into your workout routine. These are two very powerful exercises that can build impressive muscle mass all over you.

The problem is that most people at the gym are not doing these exercises. They tend to focus on puny exercises like dumbbell bicep curls and dumbbell lateral raises. This is one of the reasons why most of them do not get muscular because they are not doing powerful mass builders like the Squat and Deadlift.

Look, the simple fact that each of these exercises work out about 75% of your entire body speaks conclusively about its effectiveness as a mass muscle builder. Over and above that, because so many body parts are being worked out at the same time, you will be lifting heavier weights with greater intensity which is the basis for muscular mass development. This intensity level will further force your body to secrete more of your natural growth hormone and testosterone which are critical hormones for muscle building and muscle repair. The result from the hormonal increase will result in growing bigger muscles all over your entire physique.

The Deadlift and Squats are placed in the category of what is called "compound exercises." Compound exercises are workouts with movements on two or more joints. The more joints that are involved in an exercise, the more muscle fibers and body parts are involved. This means that you are working on many muscle parts simultaneously rather than part by part. That is why your muscularity will increase much faster because more muscle fibers are being recruited every time you work out.

If you hope to get bigger muscles all over your physique, then compound exercises are compulsory. So your workouts regimen must include compound exercises like deadlifts, squats, bench presses, barbell rows, pull ups, chin ups, military presses and dips. If you are only doing isolation exercises like bicep curls and lateral raises, then your muscle gain will be very slow and that is if they ever grow in the first place.

Stress hormone cortisol - When you are working out with compound exercises with enough intensity, you would have worked out your entire body within 45 minutes. Then it is time for you to get out of the gym, take a quick shower, gulp down your protein shake and consume a nutritious meal to feed your and repair your muscles.

Another reason for packing up within 45 minutes is because with the intensity and toll compound exercises exert on your body, your body is under an awful lot of stress. When you are stressed, your body will secrete a hormone called cortisol. This hormone will suppress your testosterone level and cause your body to store fat. Both of which are undesirable if you want to build a well defined body.

If you do all of the above and have rest days in between your workout days for your body to recuperate, you can jolly well say goodbye to your skinny body frame and welcome the hunk in you soon.
