The most common reasons why skinny guys feel the urge to gain muscle is because maybe they once got punched in the face and they couldn’t do anything. Or they recently lost some pretty women to some buff bodied guys.


A beginner looking to gain muscle is more likely to feel intimidated since starting a new activity, regardless of what it is, can be a little bit scary. When it comes to working out, the different kinds of exercises to be done and the program to be strictly followed makes the feeling more intense.


Luckily, with proper knowledge about workouts and what not, the journey won’t be as difficult as it seems. Also, beginners tend to experience results at a much faster rate than the rest. So in a few weeks time, you will start to note changes in your appearance.


If you are a beginner at body building, below are some tips that will help you out.



There are plenty of machines in the gym and as a beginner, you will be tempted to try them all out. Unfortunately, not all machines will guarantee you a solid foundation of muscle mass. For beginners, the most appropriate equipment for muscle building will be the dumbbells and barbells alike.


I know this sounds like the complete opposite of what you are trying to achieve, but trust me, resting is necessary. Unknown to many, muscles actually grow when you are sleeping, but not when you are working out. 8 or 9 hours of sleep every night will do.


You could also take a day or two between workouts for you to rest and recover. This greatly reduces the extent of soreness you will be experiencing.



Protein is vital when you are looking to build muscle. It is found in almost everything including fish, chicken, eggs, milk and other dairy products. Protein shakes can also do if you are having trouble consuming enough protein daily.


There are other products that skinny guys can use to help with muscle growth. Supplements approved by experts is one of the ways to boost muscle growth in skinny guys. The founder of Skinny2Fit has listed a couple of bodybuilding recipes, bodybuilding meals and energy boosting foods on his website that will help you achieve your desired results even faster.



Going to the gym whenever you feel like it won’t give you the results you desire. Coming up with a strict routine that you are determined to follow is enough motivation to get you through the workouts. You can consult a bodybuilding expert and ask him to give you a program with the exercises necessary for muscle growth.



Within a short period of time, you will get the hang of it and it is at that point that you will need to increase the weights. Increase them every two weeks. This will, in turn, result in muscle gain and increased strength.



Beginners and experts alike forget to stretch after workouts. Stretching is essential as it helps reduce the degree of soreness as well as increasing your range of motion. You will benefit more from the exercises you just did.



You should avoid being hungry. In a day, eat at least 4-6 times. Eating after every 4 hours will help you achieve this.


When building muscles, it is crucial that you practice some patience. You obviously don’t expect to notice changes overnight. Muscles grow gradually. All you need to do is stick to your workouts and diet and in a few weeks, results will start to show.
