There are millions of people out there that would love nothing more than to have a blueprint or a written plan on how to go from Steve Urkel to Ronnie Coleman. Skinny people out there are hoping, dreaming, and praying that someday they can be bigger, stronger, better looking, and more confident in themselves.
That progress is no easy feat. Nutrition is huge for hardgainers. You really have to eat a lot to get your body to grow. You will need help from your supplement cupboard as well. Oh yeah, and you will need to build muscle the old-fashioned way, by lifting heavy weights.
You will need to motivate yourself! This is a long process and you can't just succeed with a ho-hum attitude. Your mental drive and determination will carry you through, so use your head! If you need extra motivation, look to BodySpace, and to the author of this program, Roger Lockridge.
Roger gathered together the elements to this guide to turn hardgainers into rock hard gainers! Roger himself got started at 125 pounds, but today he weighs more than 200 pounds. Start seeing progress today with this four-part series.
Just wanted to say thanks for the motivation, and game plan to finally put some size on.
Quite a few years back I was a "gym rat." I spent 3-4 years there, and never seemed to be able to put any size on. Long story short I got discouraged and quit 135 pounds and disgusted with my genetics.
About four years past, my metabolism slowed a bit. I was walking around a weak 135-140 natural. Earlier this year I had a bout with food poising, and lost weight. I went down to 121 to be exact. After that I couldn't seem to get back to my old weight. I just stayed at 130; it was so frustrating.
Then one of my buddies started lifting, and I vowed to get back into it and get results. He later ended up flaking out but I kept lifting at home.
A few weeks later I stumbled onto your hardgainer article, and was immediately drawn in. I mean here is someone that came from where I am, and put on some real size then wrote an article about how to do it. Unlike every other one I read from some "genetically inclined" guy that to be honest has no idea what its like to be a small guy.
Thanks for taking your time to break it down and get me motivated. I've been following your guidelines quite closely, and I am seeing great results! I'm at 153 and going strong, I've never been so big and seeing results just motivates me more and more. Sorry for the long message, but I wanted you to get a little background as well.
