A mistake that a lot of hardgainers make is following a workout routine that is inconsistent with their body type.
Many of the programs featured in muscle magazines are less than ideal for hardgainers.
The muscle magazines show professional bodybuilder workouts with a “do this to look like me” approach. But think about it for a minute: why would you train like a bodybuilder? These guys have an easy time gaining muscle. We do not.
Many of these workout routines focus on smaller muscle groups, which makes sense because bodybuilders focus on working smaller muscle groups so that their bodies are perfectly symmetrical for competition. But since we are hardgainers, we need to work the biggest muscles possible to stimulate the most growth.
This is why you should always incorporate the Big 5 into your workout routine: the squat, deadlift, shoulder press, row, and bench press are all proven mass building exercises that together work every major muscle in you body.
Full body workouts are preferred because every muscle gets worked multiple times per week. Thus, there are more opportunities for your muscles to grow.
