Sup homies. So unfortunately for me I am a skinny dude. I have never really worked out before this year, and have only been working out for less then a month. I just bought the men's summer beach bod program, but I'm wondering if it will work on me? My chest is a flat board and I have no signs of any pecs. I was wondering if the people at skiable could eventually make scrawny to brawny program. I would totally do that one.

Have skinny dudes on here found success with getting buff? And if so what can I do? I already eat a lot. I just poop a lot too.

Do you lift? And if you're skinny then try bulking. I did and I loved it I gained so much muscle from it

I am in the same boat. I have been eating often and using heavier weights with low reps .ag the gym with little cardio.

Eat alot of good foods oatmeal,brown rice, salmon, tuna. High carb foods and rich in protien. Do smaller meals 6 meals a day not 3 big meals and not junk foods but nutrient food so your body uses the content for repair and growth. Do low rep routines 6/8 but try increase weight the weeks that follow. Also have a good source of protien maybe eggs/milk/honey or a protien shake 30 mins before bed. The body grows and repairs in our sleep so protiens are good to have in your system. Have at least two days off a week from training.

Try wearing a weight vest when doing your workout.lift heavy weights but not to heavy small reps.

As a skinny guy, this is great advice! Something I've noticed is how well I acclimated to more meals= more energy; rather than fewer more heavy malls making me feel sluggish/tired.
