When Derek Charlebois and Team Scivation set out to write a book on how the naturally "skinny" can gain "mass" in the form of lean body mass (LBM), it was something that no one had ever tackled before.
The minds of Team Scivation including Chuck Rudolph, MEd, RD, Scivation Director of Research and Development and pioneer of the infamous Cut Diet and Marc Lobliner, President of Scivation got together with training expert and Director of Team Scivation, Derek Charlebois for this groundbreaking book made especially for Ectomorphs!

It is easy to create a bulking program for someone who does not struggle to gain weight, but what about a program for a hard gainer? What bulking strategies should they follow? Do they need to eat or train differently than a mesomorph or an endomorph who gains weight more easily? The answer is "yes" due to physiological and metabolic differences between these three phenotypes.
The simplistic distinction between the three different phenotypes when it comes to body composition changes is:
- Ectomorph - naturally skinny and has a hard time gaining weight (both muscle and fat).
- Mesomorph - naturally built and has the tendency to gain both weight easy but can also lose weight fairly easy.
- Endomorph - naturally heavy and has an easy time gaining weight (more so fat than muscle) and a hard time losing it.
In most cases, mesomorphs and endomorphs need to eat less food than an ectomorph in order to gain weight.
I would like to point out that I do not like the term "bulking diet." Some bodybuilders feel that they need to eat everything in sight to gain weight while "bulking." I do not agree with that approach. Instead I prefer to call a diet geared towards gaining muscle a "lean mass" diet.
One's body weight can be divided into two basic groups, fat mass and lean mass. Fat mass includes one's body fat stores (adipose tissue) while lean mass includes skeletal muscle, bone, and other organs. The goal is to gain lean mass and not fat mass.
When a bodybuilder eats a hypercaloric diet, their goal is not just to gain weight, which could be both fat and lean mass, but rather to gain LEAN MASS. The strategies outlined in this book will help ectomorphs gain lean mass, not fat. The strategies in this book are specifically developed for ectomorphs who are having trouble gaining weight.
It can be very frustrating to train hard and eat right and not progress. Perhaps the biggest roadblock to growing for ectomorphs is getting enough calories.
This book will outline strategies to get enough calories for ectomorphs to GROW. This book will also give you the recipe to a great, affordable, homemade meal replacement shake as well as outline a post-workout shake that is guaranteed to help you add quality mass.
If you have been struggling to gain weight and you feel like all is lost, this book could be just the solution. Hard gainers have no fear! It's time to gain some muscle!
