The body building industry is today full of skinny body builders who, despite intense workouts, remain feebly muscled. Others have attained a marginal hypertrophy and then hit a plateau for ages. These body builders no longer dream or even hope to bulk up solely because they blame poor genetics. Multitudes of those who once ventured into body building have quit or are just about to because they have established beyond any doubt, that they are hard gainers.
The sad thing about these body builders is that they can never harness the effort necessary or the mindset crucial to explore new heights in muscle accumulation. Negative attitude whether justified by bad or good genetics always undermines muscle gain. Yet examples of men and women who have excelled in bulking up despite being hard gainers abound bin the industry. It is without question, possible to override genetics and build prize winning muscles.
How? You ask. To begin with, a hard gainer will start on a course of self development the moment he or she starts to believe something positive. Positive thinking actualizes a dream despite insurmountable barriers standing between a person and the goal. Standing taller than any preconceived limitations is where it all begins.
A boy builder who is having problems in accumulating muscles, should first identify the goal. Whether losing body fat, gaining weight, preventing aging, increasing body strength, physical fitness or whatever the goal may be, having it clear and precise is a step closer to achieving it. Despite genetic limitations, the body can be coerced to build up. A good example is ectomorph body types of body builders who are naturally thin, tall and the worst of all hard gainers. With a desperate dedication to hard work and positive believe, they too can build a muscled, strong and weighty physiques. Blessed with long arms and legs, narrow feet and hands and a short upper body, ectomorphs sometimes override their hard gainer genetics to achieve very masculine and proportional statures.
The fact is most of successful body builders have inherent physical limitations that never stop their muscle quest. The reason for this is because most never find out their physical limitations and therefore never acquire negative mindsets despite initial difficulties in bulking up. Without knowing it, people usually smash through limitations engrained by genetics simply because their determination and positive mindsets is not blurred by such knowledge.
This goes a long way to prove how important it is for a body builder to rise up and stand taller than any genetic limitation with a relentless determination and positive believe. By increasing the amount of fats taken in regular diet and then loading tons of carbs and proteins in every meal, the hard gainer can start to outsmart genetics. It is also important to adopt a superior training program that factors in the genetic limitations. Initially, hard gainers usually have to work harder than the genetically gifted body builders, but the effort pays off with triple bonus as soon as the muscle stimulation overrides genetic predisposition.
Genetics limit body building progress to the extent the body builder lets it to. Ambitious positive thinking that is not deterred at all by the default hard gainer’s mentality is the fuel necessary. Correct advice from trainers and dietitians also complement the gym sessions to enable such a body builder stand too tall to be limited by genetic limitations.
