Hard Gainers Guide To Building Muscle
What is a hard gainer? A hard gainer is a person who simply finds it hard to build muscle or size. Usually a person who is a hard gainer will find it hard to consume big meals and will usually be snacking throughout the whole day. Hard gainers also have a high metabolic rate which burns carbohydrates soon as they eat them leaving them lean and unable to gain size. Are you a hard gainer? If so please read my guide for hard gainers below.
Hard gainer or not you should be monitoring your diet. Monitoring your diet for a hard gainer is essential.Monitoring your diet will allow you see what is working and what is not. I recommend a diary to write every single meal, drink and snack you have. Doing this will allow you assess your habits and routines. When your diary starts to fill up you can use it as a reference if you lose motivation and forget what you where doing.
If you are a hard gainer you need to get of the treadmills and minimize cardio completely. Your metabolism is already high and contributing to more cardio will just hold you back when trying to gaining size. For hard gainers I recommend working the large muscle groups only. Legs, chest and back. Below I have created three videos in response to the three main muscle groups.

Rest and sleeping aids in muscle recovery allowing your muscles to repair and grow. Without getting enough rest you run the risk of over training which will burn your muscle making you lose muscle.
Eating is the most essential key for anyone wanting to build muscle, however for hard gainers it is absolutely crucial to eat a good diet with lots proteins and carbohydrates.
Hard Gainers find it hard to build muscle as they find it hard to eat enough carbohydrates to allow them to grow.
