If you are in the gym every day trying to build muscle, you may already have the body you envision, you just need to lose the fat.
If you are attempting to build muscle and you do not have a lean physique (See: Ideal Body Fat Percentage Chart if you are unsure), I strongly recommend you focus on losing fat without losing muscle before attempting to add some bulk to your frame. Gaining muscle without gaining fat is a very difficult proposition, even if you count every calorie you eat meticulously. I must disclose I have a bias against muscle building – I think most guys have more than enough natural muscle once they reach maturity and after putting in a few good years of quality lifting and eating. If you are at, or above 15% body fat (the chances are likely), I highly recommend focusing on losing fat first. If you are not lean, you have body fat that is hiding your hard earned muscle mass and even more important, hiding the shape of your muscles. For example, your shoulder muscle is a round, teardrop shaped muscle that is involved in all pulling and pushing movements. In the photo of me to your right taken a couple of years ago, I have 155lb of lean body mass and I weighed around 167lb.
Let’s say you want to add 10-15lb of muscle to your frame, do you know how much volume 10-15lb of muscle has?
I’m not a big fan of using weight when it comes to building a certain amount of muscle. The better way is to measure your body parts to see if there are any major areas of improvement. You may learn after doing some body measurements that you can definitely get your thighs and calves an inch bigger.
I hope after reading this article the choice is very clear as to whether you should lose fat first, or build muscle. My overall goal is to get to 190 at 10% body fat, so to get to the point, would going up in weight to about 210 lbs and then cutting be more effective than going up to about 14 or 15% body fat and then cutting not to allow my body to become too accepting of holding onto bodyfat. To answer your other question about adding bulk, yes, adding some fat is ok at 10% body fat, just want to be careful, that’s all. After changing your body fat percentage from the high teens to the low teens, hitting a plateau is almost expected from my experience. 2) Add more intensity to your exercise program – You may want to first take down the volume of exercise down a little for a couple weeks to gain your bearings, but then whatever you have been doing, take it up a notch either in terms of volume, or intensity. Be sure you are drinking enough water and getting enough sleep, which can easily effect your results.
For the answer to your second question, I could write a book on it, but in the meantime, i just added this article so that you can appreciate the difference between maintenance vs. Hey Marc, I’m 15, a male, and I am 5 feet 3 inches tall is 122.4 pounds too much wait for me ? Thanks your site is amazing and can you do a pull up video on how to do pull ups properly and how to get from one pull up to 20 pull ups? After reading several of your articles I’m really understanding the science of getting lean alot better.
Hey Devin – I suggest you check out some of the motivational articles under the motivation category (top right of this site there is a box which has the categories tab). I’ve been fasting on water only for 7 days and have dropped from 93 kgs to 87kgs in 7 days. Can you read the message that I sent you on You Tube (PolishBob96), the message that is about my workout and can you tell me if it is a good workout and will this workout make me stronger and build muscle and if it is bad what should I add or get rid? Is there anything that I can do to help this web site grow, I wrote about your website on my you tube account, you can check it out if you want to or when you have the time. Thank you for making a video on how to do a push up properly and how fast that I should do them, I finally know how to do them correctly! Sorry for all these long message, and sorry If I am being annoying by writing so much and asking so many questions. For nutrition you are saying to eat only all- natural food or organic food and how much water should I drink a day ? You also may consider my BuiltLean Program for a structured approach to getting the body you want.

One of the very best ways to slim your thighs and improve your general health and well-being is to get out and walk a€” briskly and regularly.It doesna€™t sound A­innovative, but did you know that with the right pace and route, walking can burn off more than 300 calories an hour? The diet part of the Thin Thighs In 30 Days regime is incredibly simple: you need to count calories.
April 2010 – the month that two skinny ectomorphs decided they were fed up with being skinny ectomorphs. That before shot of me up there (I’m on the right) —that was the fittest I had ever been in my entire life. I was 6’2 and 130 pounds through high school, In university my weight held steady at 125-130, and in my last two years I got smart and managed to put on 20 pounds (mostly during one summer). We devoured every single bit of ectomorph muscle-building information tidbit we could find, from blog to book to eBook. A couple weeks later, homemade ectomorph workout and nutrition plan in hand, we started bodybuilding our little hearts out. As we progressed we got a lot of attention on Youtube and Fitness Forums—some good, some bad. We may not have had the best form or have been doing the best exercises, but damn we were dedicated. It turns out that the mainstream approach to bodybuilding is one of the silliest ways to build muscle as an ectomorph or a hardgainer. In a 2000 study by McLester, they took experienced male weightlifters and put them on a workout plan made up of three workouts per week. Note: The study was using experienced weightlifters, but the same seems to be true in beginners. Interestingly enough, those bodybuilding triple splits only became popular in the 1960’s, when steroids came into vogue. So they divided their workouts into splits: chest day, back day, arm day, legs+abs day, etc.
Before steroids even the genetically gifted strongmen and athletes were all doing full body workouts around three times per week.
By having our nutrition so perfectly dialled in we were able to produce a bunch of really positive effects for our health, appetite, physique, energy levels and strength.
Hell, we were even building muscle faster than we’d ever seen anyone else build muscle.
While Jared and I had been studying design, building websites and writing music, Marco had been studying health sciences, working as a personal trainer, travelling around the continent to attend cutting edge seminars, interning at top athletic performance facilities, and eventually training pro athletes.
We started taking more and more of Marco’s advice and all of it was producing equally impressive improvements to our results. At that point we started getting more emails from people who had seen our blog posts, and many of our friends were starting to ask for advice.
We were happy with our results and not really looking to gain more weight, but Jared wanted to up his chest strength, and I was loving feeling healthy and strong.
As far as nutrition went we figured out a lot of the stuff we were doing was great, but a lot of the stuff we were doing was also excessive. The next thing we realized was that most programs out there really don’t do a good job of giving you a flexible meal plan.
We also realized that we needed calorie boosting strategies, since lots of skinny guys simply don’t have a big appetite. We decided to make a recipe book packed full of the best muscle-building recipes out there. The eBook, recipe book, and training program slowly began to take shape … and Jared and I became guinea pigs again. A couple months later with a lot of the writing done and the training program filmed, it was to the point were we could start testing it. Jeff, a rad dad, gained 10 pounds in the first five weeks, radically transformed his posture, increased his upper body size and strength, and disappeared his skinny-gut. Albert, a young doctor working eighty hour workweeks, managed to gain 23 pounds, proving that no matter how busy your schedule is you can cleverly find a way to make it work. Greg, a guitar playing college student, gained twenty pounds in ten weeks and told us it was really helping with his rock climbing.
Over the course of testing the program I myself gained another 20 pounds, bringing my gains up to a total of 55 pounds of muscle.


This new approach to training is way better than what Jared and I were initially doing, both in terms of results … and perhaps more importantly, also in terms of longterm health, strength, posture, mobility and performance. And after months and months of writing and planning, and months and months of testing it’s finally, finally finished! If you want to master this once and for all and gain 20-30 pounds over the next couple of months check out our full step-by-step muscle-building system for naturally skinny dudes – complete with training program, nutrition program, recipe book, exercise videos, members community and individualized coaching from us. Shane DuquetteThe effects of growth hormone on muscle growth are seeming tenuous as more and more research comes out about it. One word of wisdom for those trying to look more like an action hero than a tyrannosaurus rex would be to focus on upper body compound lifts as well.
The members of our program post their before photos in our community area and then update it phase by phase (every 5 weeks). Once you get the hang of this you’ll be able to pack on those 20-30 pounds in no time! Jared, on the other hand, has narrower shoulders but very thick bones, giving him large wrists, ankles and a large neck. Marco similarly has narrower shoulders, but he also has a shorter torso, with most of his height coming from his legs. Everyone is built a little differently, and it’s rare to find someone who is entirely ectomorphic.
As for what results you can expect, most of the guys going through our program who apply themselves and stick with it gain around 20 pounds in the first couple phases, and then either go on to gain more, or decide to trim off some fat or whatnot.
I have been active for years, but this is the first time I have taken a workout regime seriously. How long should a person do this, and when do we know that all of the fat is gone we don’t have to focus on getting rid of the fat and when all of the fat is gone do we have to do any workouts on getting rid of fat or just focus on building muscle again?
I eventually wised up, focused on fat loss, then switched to improving my strength once I hit my target.

Would you do pretty much anything to get rid of your cellulite?Unfortunately, when women pile on the pounds, it tends to sit stubbornly on our hips, bottom and thighs. And when you use the correct technique, walking regularly really can tone bottom and thigh muscles incredibly quickly.To get the dramatic results that the Thin Thighs In 30 Days programme promises, you need to walk one to three miles, six days a week a€” A­follow the weekly walking a€?prescriptionsa€™ in the 4-Week Fitness Plan box (below). THIGH RAISE: Lying face down, raise your legs a€”from just above your knees a€” so your feet are a few inches off the ground (above top).

Never come to the table starving a€” youa€™ll just over-eat.DRINK plenty of water and stay hydrated. That first month went so well that we decided to expand our muscle-building pact to four months, and by the end of those four months the Bony Boys were a thing of the past. We were also in the midst of starting up our design business and our schedules were pretty full.
With a lot of these internet transformations guys will intentionally lose weight so they can rebuild it quickly. I was actually pretty proud of having gotten that big, so I was trying my damnedest to look as muscular and badass as possible. If you compare that statement with the photo, you might think that I’m a glass half full kind of guy (or crazy). At first it was a little discouraging, because absolutely everything mainstream is targeted at people looking to lose fat, not build muscle.
We may not have had an appetite for food, but skinny desk-bound computer junkies that we were, we certainly had an appetite for information. A couple months in, even personal trainers at the gym were starting to notice these quickly growing little skinny guys running around pumping iron. No matter how busy we were we always found a way to get our meals in, however makeshift they had to be. Combine both those traits, as it often happens, and you’ve got a bodybuilding nightmare. We can’t just pop on over to the gym, do what we fancy and expect to make any kind of progress at all. One is that nutrition is rarely a factor in studies looking into weightlifting, and weightlifting is rarely a factor in studies looking into muscle-building nutrition.
This allowed them to absolutely annihilate a muscle group each session, which was cool, because they had enhanced abilities to recover from that intense weightlifting onslaught. While our workouts might not have been perfect for building muscle, our diet sure as hell was. All of a sudden it seemed like our genetics were pretty damn fantastic for building muscle.
I was a little surprised at first, since the Marco I remembered had a pretty comparable body to mine and Jared’s – tall, lanky, and runway-model skinny. He congratulated us on our results and slowly started to hint that we were being goofballs when it came to training. We found that we seemed to recover faster and it became a little easier to eat enough to gain weight.
We were still doing a mishmash of training routines, but more and more of our lifts were big compound lifts, more postural and strength work was being worked in, and we were ditching a lot of our mainstream bro-science bodybuilding habits for evidence-based bodybuilding, strength training and athletic conditioning stuff.
We wound up building Marco a blog, and to return the favour Marco offered to help us out with our ectomorph strength and muscle endeavours.
The workouts were more enjoyable, our strength was going up a hell of a lot quicker, and we felt healthier than ever.
Most of the people emailing us were struggling to stick to ridiculous meal plans and finding it nearly impossible to fit into their work or university schedules, and understandably so.
That was one of the things Jared and I struggled with the most, since all the other information out there is for guys who can effortlessly eat tons of food. Recipes that were healthy, tasty, easy to make, easy to fit in our stomachs, and optimized for stimulating muscle protein synthesis. Marco started crunching numbers, rigorously testing out training plans with some of his skinny personal training clients, and he took another course at the Postural Restoration Institute. The shirt I’m wearing in the Program video doesn’t fit my arms or shoulders anymore!
We’ve got a members forum hidden away behind this blog post where Marco, Jared and I, along with all the other Bony to Beastly members, are scheming away at how to constantly improve everything. The Bony to Beastly program now also includes a membership to that community, and coaching from Marco and I throughout the entire process.
We’ve got a great bunch of people all with a similar passion and all working towards the same goal. Once I started with deadlifts and squats that was a period of about 3-6months to get to 90kg. This is not to say that squats and deadlifts aren’t incredibly effective—they are—but this could be due to different reasons—the sheer number of muscles they stimulate simultaneously, for example. I do have the wide shoulders (especially after training) associated with a more mesomorphic body type.
I would guess you’d gain somewhere between 20 and 30 pounds, depending on how much weight training experience and muscle mass you already have. I am curious if you have any tips for breaking through a barrier like this in your workout regime. I am planning to apply for them after graduating college because currently I want to double major in Exercise Science and Chemical Engineering.
It’s not nearly as frustrating to add some fat with the muscle now than it was when I was heavier.
Heard brought with her photos of her alleged injuries, including one that appears to show her with a large bruise around her eye (right). A heartbreaking photograph from the couple's wedding shows them holding hands underneath a cloud of pink blossom, while another shows the pair at the reception (bottom).
Customers claimed drilling carried on through the night near cabin rooms, while another alleged that furious passengers were refusing to leave until they were given a refund. But in March, a lupus specialist at Guy's Hospital in London said her symptoms, including chronic pain and fits, might be caused by the genetic condition Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), which affects the skin, bones and connective tissue. But the good news is that there is something you can do about those unwanted lumps and bumps.
You also need to perform the A­simple a€” but hugely effective a€” Work Off exercise routine after each walk.Walk off wobbly thighsDecide on the routes you are going to walk. Place your left arm directly over your left knee, using your right hand to support yourself by your hip A­(pictured left). Keeping your back flat, slowly raise your left thigh to about 45 degrees, with your knee bent and pointing your heel up to the A­ceiling (above, bottom). Slide your body down the wall, until you are sitting with your thighs perpendicular to the surface (pictured). Or they’ll try to look itty bitty (or fat) using a bunch of tricks to make the after shot more impressive.
Hell, it took a long time to figure out what we even were: ectomorphs, because of our small bone structure and long lanky limbs, and hardgainers, because of our muscle-resistant muscle fibres (slow twitch muscle fibres) and thyroid dominant hormone production. We always got our workouts in too, no matter how busy or sick we were. One week the gym shut down for renovations so we made  a makeshift half-functional gym in our design office.
Many of these bodybuilders are not only genetically gifted at putting on muscle, they’re also pharmaceutically gifted at putting on muscle!
The only difference was that one group had their lifts organized into full body workouts, whereas the other group did a classic triple split routine. This kept their bodies perpetually primed for muscle growth whether or not their training was optimal or not. After dozens of articles, books, lectures and seminars on performance nutrition, sports nutrition, bodybuilding nutrition, etc, I had a pretty good grasp of it. Better yet, he understood health, hormones, performance, strength, posture, alignment and how all of that fit together.
We were slow to take his advice, since Marco isn’t the type of guy to list off his credentials.


We were gradually standing straighter and feeling better, and my strength was going up by leaps and bounds. It was great knowing that the workouts we were doing in the gym was giving us strength we could use in the real world, too.
We asked Marco if he was game to help us, since we knew he was a crucial part of making this program the best one out there. Where were all the meals you could cook in bulk and reheat, prepare quickly and wolf down, carry around on the go, whip up in a blender, prepare for dates, etc. To our utter surprise, he gained an astonishing twenty pounds in five weeks … and still had abs.
My face looks way better, I look and feel way healthier, I fit into clothes better, and my strength has more than quadrupled on almost all my big lifts. When you can work up to a decent weight, then the effect of weight and repetitions will release growth hormone. I found what you guys have made to be very easy to read and ubderstanfm it also helps that I can relate with everything your saying as well. I have a small appetite, narrow wrists, neck and ankles, very long limbs, a very long torso, and I’m predominantly made up of slow twitch muscle fibres though, making my wider shoulder span pretty much my only mesomorphic trait. I want to take your advice against bulking, but I am not sure what regimes are good for developing muscle mass without necessarily going through the bulking phase. I have hit a couple of plateaus during this adventure however I been stuck at this weight for over two weeks. Lately I have been utilizing an Atkins type diet, high fat, high protein, low carb approach. Some are advicing me to get into HGH and steroids to burn more fats and get the solid look but am still not convinced.
That photo was reportedly taken on Saturday after Heard alleges that Depp hit her in the face with his iPhone and then fled when police arrived on the scene.
How does dramatic inch-loss in less than a month sound?Wendy Stehling, author of Thin Thighs In 30 Days a€” which sold more than 2.5 million copies in the 1980s a€” has updated it for todaya€™s woman. While sitting straight, move your right foot to your left hand and hold for five seconds to start.
Then raise your right leg back at an angle (not straight back) a€” lead with your heel, until your heel is 12in off the ground (right).
Repeat for as long as you comfortably can.Follow each of your walks this week with this Work Off routine (outlined above).
Never eat fewer than 1,500 calories a day without being monitored by a physician.Treat food labels with caution.
A­People can lose weight eating the food they like to eat just by eating less.a€™ So despite what other diets would have you believe, it really is that simple. Once we figured that out we started to make some progress—it turns out there are a lot of bodybuilders out there who reach out to ectomorphs and hardgainers, so we were in luck. Partly because we were too ashamed to tell our friends and family that we were trying to build muscle. Everyone else in their study group will gain nothing, but they’ll have pretty stellar gains regardless.
Judging by our bodies, diets and exercise habits … Jared and probably fell on the low end at the time – bad news for bodybuilding. Not only are they the people who can get away with paying attention to the rules a little less, they aren’t even playing by the same rules in the first place. Instead of training a muscle group once per week, resulting in a couple days of elevated muscle protein synthesis and then a few days of nothing much happening … you’re keeping all your muscles primed for growth all week long.
All of a sudden we were maximally stimulating muscle protein synthesis at regular intervals over the course of the day, optimizing our macronutrients and micronutrients, experimenting with carb and calorie cycling, scheming up recipes that allowed us to eat more, and, err, being ten times more anal about all of that than we needed to be. Jared’s stubborn chest muscles finally exploded in size, and with my following along doing those same workouts I was finally able to bench 225 pounds! They don’t improve your results, they just make living a healthy lifestyle a whole hell of a lot harder.
Not only were Jared and I doing most exercises improperly for our lanky ectomorph frames, we were just plain doing them improperly for anyone’s body type.
My problem is that I am second guessing my workouts and diets now, and I want to know what the best options are for me at this point. Heard was ultimately granted a temporary order by the judge, who ruled that Depp must remain at least 100 yards away from Heard until their next hearing, which is scheduled for late June.
The family, including mother Theresa, feels the NHS - unable to cure her - now regards Kirsty as a 'nuisance'. Though the basic programme remains true to the highly effective original, a handful of new exercises and the introduction of interval training in the Walk Out section will blast away cellulite more efficiently than ever before.
Check serving sizes to see how many there are in the container a€” you might be eating four servings and not even know it! I was telling him that we were drinking high-carb workout drinks mixed with protein while working out. I read that your body can burn fats in place of carbs and it won’t raise your blood sugar.
The judge ruled against Heard however in her attempt to collect spousal support from Depp and have him cover her attorney fees. Follow Wendya€™s expert advice and your thighs should feel sleeker and slimmer within days.a€?Because of our female A­physiology, wobbly, cellulite-ridden thighs, saddle bags of fat on hips and a dimpled, droopy bottom are the bane of most womena€™s lives,a€™ says Wendy.
Key in your proposed walk on a map of your local area and the site will A­calculate the distance for you.
I’m very lean everywhere except for my belly they guy who did the measurements thought it was a little odd how lean I was everywhere except for my belly. Depp was not present at court, as he is currently in Portugal with his band Hollywood Vampires (inset).
Alternatively, first drive or walk around your A­proposed route and use your cara€™s mileometer, or a€” if youa€™re on foot a€” a pedometer to A­measure A­distance. Once you start following the Thin Thighs Work Off and Walk Off programmes, if you eat the right amount of calories to maintain the weight youa€™d like to be (see chart below), you should lose weight.
Increasing it by 1% is still progress … but it likely wouldn’t be noticeable progress. Do 80% of the heaviest weight you can for 5 reps of 5 sets on bench, deadlift, rows, and swats (front and back squat). I have just started this approach with the diet to lose the last bit of fat to get ripped, ( already a devout gym rat doing HIIT three times a week with weights 2-3 times a week). Include hills and inclines in your workout when you can for their extra fitness and toning benefits.Set aside at least 45 minutes (ideally an hour) every day for your Walk Off, but do remember you must include a rest day each week (I recommend Mondays). And then a run for an hour…i dont like to really lift weights, my diet is rather well, I would asume.
This is because active, strong A­muscles need more calories to keep them ticking over than inactive ones do.
But I would LOVE your advise in what I can do to achive a decent toned body (im not picky), what I should change and keep.
One thing in your get ripped article that you didn’t mention is the type of carbs to eat?
If you are fit and your muscles are toned, youa€™ll be burning substantially more energy than an unfit, inactive person a€” even if youa€™re just sitting on the settee.Ita€™s easy to keep track of the amount of calories you are eating each day. I am afraid even with high protein and high fat, with little to no carbs I may burn muscle! All you have to do is tot up the number of A­calories on the nutrition labels of the foods you are eating. But do remember that though a A­calorie is a calorie, whether it is in ice cream or vegetables, foods that are packed with lean protein (such as grilled chicken, nuts, fish, low-fat dairy products and lean red meat) and low in fat, added sugar and rich in fibre (such as A­vegetables, fruit and wholegrain carbohydrates) will fill you up for longer.And they will help to keep you healthier than a diet of cakes, crisps and chocolate.
Not very healthy sounding, but the high rep, heavy weight squats and deadlifts work and you will be beastly strong as well.Dig in! I have found that I need loads of fat after any short, intense to the point of muscle fatigue exercise. In the off season I'm usually around 16 stone and on stage I'm around 13 stone and the way I lose the weight is by dramatically cutting my calorie intake! I will say though that my opinion on the diet that humans should follow which is backed up by numerous studies (although whatever your argument may be you can always find an equal argument to the contrary on the net) is to simply intake fat, (not from animals) protein, (not from animals) fruit and many vegetables. If you constantly eat healthily then your body will find it's healthy weight on it's own.161jon woodallDecember 15 2013This is for grinch and frank, I am a bodybuilder and I eat lots of protein, fat and carbohydrates of all different GI levels and I eat the same foods if I'm bulking off season or dieting for a show.

I Split my bodyparts over 4 days starting monday with chest and triceps, tuesday back and biceps, thurday shoulders and traps and legs on friday.
My diet is pretty much eat every 3 hours be it whole food or protein shake but each meal will have at least 30 grams protein and the rest of the meal will simply be for filling up on calories regardless of what it is.
I basicly try to get in as many calories as I can as long as I get enough protein in and I don't make myself feel ill.
When I diet for a show I pretty much just cut my meal sizes in half and do an extra hour of walking cardio every time I train.
Be aware that my job as a carpet fitter is extremely high energy so I don't have to watch what I eat. The methods that I adhere to as a bodybuilder is no reflection on my beliefs on adequate human nutrition and my knowledge on the subject is built over eight years of avid reading. Since researching diets on the internet I've come across LCHF which I started 3 weeks ago and so far I feel better and have lost a little weight. I will say though that my opinion on the diet that humans should follow which is backed up by numerous studies (although whatever your argument may be you can always find an equal argument to the contrary on the net) is to simply intake fat, (not from animals) protein, (not from animals) fruit and many vegetables.
If you are a bodybuilder, I guess muscle mass is not something desirable to loose, so it is indeed extremely important what you cut out.Regarding animal fat and protein vs. Reaching this amount of calories without exceeding 20 to 30g carbs and still stay within a "moderate" proteins intake is quite a challenge. I am trying to push on fat as much as I can, adding butter in the pan when cooking the bacon and eggs! Adding sour cream to my cooding, adding mayonnaise to my salad along with olive oil to increase the fat content. I put heavy cream in all the coffee cups I drink, about 30ml in each and I drink about 5 cups a day. I still manage to get around 2,500 ~ 3,000 calories maximum.181debbyMay 6 2015I am apparently the only person in the world who cannot lose any weight on lchf. You can gain weight on a LCHF even if you are significantly overweight -- I know that because I have done it.Even after 15 years of LCHF, I don't think I have a properly-functioning "appestat", and I have to consciously restrict my food intake just to stay weight-stable. It is clear that if you want to increase your weight fast, the you should take excessive quantity of calories because you cant eat much food.
