If you?re a naturally skinny guy, bulking up can feel like trying to sneeze with your eyes open: Impossible.But what if I tell you it doesn?t have to be that way? That you can pack on slabs of muscle, too?The 60-day plan below is designed specifically for ectomorphs, or ?hard gainers.? It focuses on making you bigger and stronger.
1. Limit your ?cardio? to 1 to 2 per week. I?d never say to omit it altogether, but if putting on size is your goal, expending more calories is not going to help you. Performing one or two 30-minute sessions per week is more than enough. Do cardio on non-lifting days.
2. Eat! No, you?re not eating enough. (Find out What and When You Should Eat to Build Muscle.)
3. Eat more.
