Would you be rather be told wrong information that would make you happy rather than being told less pleasant information that would help you reach your goals??
of course you want to know the truth and the truth is that body building takes time.
Don't expect to see amazing results after a month or even three months.
Body building is not the type of sport that can help you change your body shape by exercising at the end of April in order to look good in summer.
I know tens of people who come to the gym 2 month before the summer hoping to be in shape then leave disappointed at June when they found that nothing changed.
so how long does it take to build muscle?
For us, ectomorphs, skinny guys or hard gainers building muscles takes more time than other body types. If you compared yourself to a friend you might find him getting results before you do and this happens because you are genetically different. (see How can skinny guys gain muscles fast).
of course you would still see improvement in 3 months but this improvement is not the kind of transformation you currently have in your mind.
If you are skinny and if you really want to change your body shape (like i did) then you must understand that this is a game of commitment and only those who manage to keep going on the long run reach their goals.
Most skinny guys do the opposite of what should be done to get big in their case.
by putting a big emphasis on cardio, exercising more than 3 times a weak and training the same muscle more than once a weak skinny guys burn their muscles without noticing. (see How hard gainers should train)
Because we hard gainers have different genetic structure we must play by completely different rules in order to gain muscle mass quickly. Following the footsteps of those who have different body types will lead you nowhere because unless you put your body type into consideration it will take you so long before you can build muscle.
Luckily you will find all the information you need in this site so keep reading.
I have spent years doing the wrong things in the gym and didn't get any result, fortunately i came across the book No nonsense muscle building which helped me get rid of most of the misconceptions that i had about body building and guided me to the right way that a skinny guy should take in order to get bigger, its worth checking out.
