Default Big Beyond Belief - Hardgainer

From Big Beyond Belief:

Quote:
The Myth Of The “Hardgainer”

Let us deal with the hardgainer fantasy. In every bodybuilding magazine today you will read articles about the hardgainer, the guy who has a hard time putting on muscle because he has a genetic liability. All this hardgainer talk is merely a scam to get you to buy somebody’s product.

The fact is that maybe one guy in 500 has the genetics to put muscle on easily. The rest of us have to work for our growth. The body does not want to put on muscle. It is an exhaustive physiological process, and 99% of us are hardgainers. It takes work, good diet, discipline, knowledge and a strong, health-conscious attitude to build muscle.

Genetics are just a cop-out. When you look at Tom Platz or Arnold, neither had what would be called “great genetics”, but they went on to be all-time greats. Forget the hardgainer whining and those hard-gainer programs too.
