Let’s assume you’re a skinny bodybuilding intent on changing your physique. Yes, you’ve spent years in the weight room, but you’re just not seeing the development that your peers are enjoying. They grow faster than you. Their frames are better built than yours. They are growing muscles in places where you don’t even really seem to have places! You know that there are two paths to take, but you’re not sure which one is the best one for you. Let’s examine both of them.
Path #1 involves PATIENCE.
You’re in your early 20s and you are skinny. These are the facts. Your metabolism is currently through the roof, and that isn’t going to change. You engage in fairly healthy eating practices, which means it’s tough to obtain enough calories in your daily travels. You know that eating more food would help you to gain some size, but you really do have a hard time eating that much. With this path, you keep the diet clean and you eat healthy.
In the gym, you train very hard and you’re pretty strong for your body weight. Your strength gains are very minimal, however. You don’t bench 300 and you don’t squat 400. You never have and you never will. In the real world, many people don’t know that you work out when they see you in your everyday joe clothes. But when you take off your shirt, you are ripped!
Path #2 is known as the BULK.
With this path, you eat everything in sight. This is essentially the “see food” diet, because if you see it, you eat it!
In the gym, you train very hard, but you’re not the strongest guy at your body weight. But you are strong. A year of this lifting path, and you’ll enter that aforementioned 300/400 club. In the real world, you look like a beast to those around you. You wear a lot of muscle and a lot of fat. You’re as big as a house. And you will gain some muscle training in this manner. But when you take off your shirt, well, the abs of steel are there – but they sure are hiding well under that belly fat!
Which bodybuilding path is right for you? This depends upon your goals and how you’d like to spend your 20s. If you would like to appear lean and athletic, then path 1 is the one for you. If some short term fat gain is worth a shot at more possible muscle gain, then path 2 might be best for you. Path 1 is healthier, but path 2 is often described as a lot more fun! If you have health problems, then path 1 is probably ideal for you. If your health is outstanding and you’re extremely underweight, then it might actually be the healthiest move to try path number 2 for a year. Choose your path wisely, as you will wear the results!
