Workout Routines For Skinny Guys - Pack On Muscle Fast!
If you have been searching for information on workout routines for skinny guys then this article will help you pack on muscle fast! Usually it is the skinny ectomorph (which is my body type), with a light bone structure that can really find it hard to build muscle fast, or even at all.
The good news is with the correct routine, plenty of recuperation and the right eating plan your muscle gain goals can be achieved.
Without doubt the biggest problem I have seen and encountered in all gyms wherever I travel in the world is over training. Once you fully let your muscles recuperate with the right amount of rest and nutrition your gains will come much easier and more consistent.
Here’s one of the best workout routines for skinny guys that you will ever come across. I recommend you apply this for 1 full year and you will achieve the best gains of your life.
There are 2 routines which you will alternate 3 days each week:
Routine 1) Chest – Shoulders – Triceps. This is the “push” routine.
Routine 2) Legs (including calves) – Back – Biceps. This is the “pull” routine.
An example would be either Mon – Wed – Friday OR Tues – Thurs – Sat.
Do Routine 1 on Mon, then Routine 2 on Wed then back to Routine 1 on Fri etc. Start the following week on Monday with Routine 2 etc.
Each workout should last a maximum of 90 minutes and train to failure every set, with some forced reps too. The first exercise for each body part should be a compound movement. (ie: squats for legs and bench press for chest etc).
The reason this packs on muscle fast is simply because you are resting each muscle group for a minimum of 72 hours between sessions and giving your muscle tissue the sleep and nutrition it needs to grow. By combining a push – pull principle you will not be working your opposing muscles even indirectly.
Workout Routines For Skinny Guys Nutrition
Again, keep this simple and consistent. Here’s the magic formula. 1 gram of protein per pound of your bodyweight taken in by 6 meals including protein shakes every day.
Carbs should come from fruit and vegetables for slow releasing energy and drink 8 – 12 glasses of water every day to make sure your nutrients are being absorbed.
If it is not convenient with your job etc to eat every 2 and ½ to 3 hours then you can supplement with a quality whey protein powder (mixed with water) or low sugar protein bars as 2 of your snacks.
Your muscles grow when you leave the gym and when you are sleeping. Without fail you must get 8 hours sleep every night so you may have to make some sacrifices to be able to achieve this, it will be more than worth it!

Cycle your training in regards to your rep range during the course of the year in 90 day cycles. Start off in the 12 rep range, then come down to 10, 8 and finally 6 reps per set to finish off. Continually getting stronger is also key to pack on muscle fast.
