Many gamers are naturally skinny guys and struggle with gaining weight and putting on muscle mass – and the #1 thing people always mention is “you need to eat more” – you’ve heard that a million times
I know it, you know it already – eating more is a must – but there’s more to it than that if you really want to gain muscle fast…
What’s up gamers – Tyler Johnston here “The APE Coach” and today I want to go a bit deeper than the typical “eat big to get big” advice and give you some solid gamer workout advice with 3 simple tips that have to do with your workout routine to help you gain muscle and weight fast.
Let’s get to it!
Muscle Gain Tip #1: Workout Log
In order to build muscle as a naturally skinny guy, you HAVE to get stronger – you’re never going to build big muscle size until you increase your strength by a lot – they really go hand-in-hand.
The best way to do this is with a workout log – I’ve tracked my workouts ever since I started and I feel it is the single biggest contributing factor that has led to me attaining such great gains in size and strength as a natural all these years and what allows me to continually progress.
You want to track your exercises, weights, sets and reps every single workout so you know what you’ve done, then each week you can look at what you did the week before and aim to beat it by a little bit.
If I benched 225 for 5 reps last week, I’m going to bust my ass to rep out 6 or 7 reps this week. It’s all about making small improvements consistently over time that add up to massive results in the end.
Muscle Gain Tip #2: Focus on Form
You definitely need to train with intensity and push yourself as hard as you can to continually make strength and size gains – but way, way too many people, beginners and advanced trainees alike fall into the trap of ego-lifting.
You need to remember if you want to make impressive gains you can’t trade-off quality reps for quantity just trying to move as much weight as possible from point A to point B.
You need to work the right muscles with proper form and challenge them as hard as you can without getting too sloppy and just doing shit quality reps. You need quality and quantity over time.
So be patient with your progress, some deviations in form are necessary and appropriate in certain situations as you become more advanced, but you always want to remember proper form and remember to work the muscles don’t just move weight.
Muscle Gain Tip #3: Have a Planned Workout in Advance
We all know the saying – if you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail – Building muscle is no different!
Without a properly structured workout routine in place, you end up just performing random workouts at the gym every week, always changing things up and you never really see and serious gains because this approach doesn’t allow for proper progressive overload.
Having a set workout plan holds you accountable and eliminates all the guess work – it provides the step-by-step framework so you don’t have to waste time in the gym looking around for what machine is open and what you should do next – you know exactly what exercises you should be doing, what weight you’re lifting and how many reps you’re aiming for to make progress and make those huge gains in size and strength.
As a naturally skinny guy, you need to be performing the big compound movements like squats, deadlifts, bench press, dips, rows, pull ups, etc., as the majority of your workouts and be performing each at least once every single week if you want to gain muscle fast.
