Hi, this is Andy Wilkinson from SkinnyGainMuscle.com,
bringing you another video lesson on how to gain weight if you’re skinny.
And in this video we’re looking at: “What Exercises Can You Do To Gain Weight?”
Now, when we’re talking about gaining healthy weight, we’re talking about increasing your
overall muscle mass. Not in a ridiculous “bodybuilder” way. But
in a way that makes you look healthy and athletic. So what kind of exercises can you do to produce
these kinds of results? Well, to increase your overall muscle mass
you’re going to need to focus most of your effort and attention on Weight Training exercises.
More specifically, weight training exercises that encourage the most muscle mass and healthy
weight gains. Quite simply, you need to subject your muscles
to enough stress and resistance, so that they’re forced to adapt and grow back bigger and stronger.
And when you do this, and combine it with a suitable nutrition program, you’ll be able
to gain weight. So let’s now cover what types of exercises
are best for a naturally skinny guy who wants to gain healthy weight by putting on more
muscle mass. Well the first “take away” here is to perform
what I call “Major Muscle Movements” – also known as Compound Exercises – that activate
as much muscle fiber as possible. At it’s most basic levels, we have 2 main
types of muscle groups: Primary muscle groups, and Secondary muscle groups.
The Primary muscle groups are the largest muscles are in the body, such as our Upper
Legs, our Back, and our Chest. While Secondary muscle groups are made up
of smaller muscles, like the shoulders, triceps, biceps and calves.
And in order to gain weight the fastest, we really want to place our focus and attention
on working the Primary muscle groups first. Again, we want to do this so we can engage
the most muscle fibers, and trigger the largest release of Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone
– both “muscle friendly” hormones. And then we want to work out the Secondary
muscle groups later on in our training sessions. For example, 3 fantastic key exercises to
place at the start of a training session are: The Deadlift, the Squat, and the Barbell Bench
Press – because these target our Primary muscle groups, and recruit more than 85% of the muscles
in our body. Ultimately, the more muscle fiber you recruit
with your exercises, the more Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone your body will be
triggered to release. And these 2 hormones play an important role in the muscle growth
and healthy weight gain process. Okay, that brings us to the end of this video.
