How To Tell If You Are A Hardgainer
In most cases, other people will let you know, you won't have to tell yourself. Usually insensitive comments about your size will flow freely from time to time.
But more specifically, here are some "hard gainer" characteristics:
- Small skeletal frame
- Ultra fast metabolism
- Impervious to traditional bodybuilding techniques
When I first started working out I didn't know what a hard gainer was. Heck, I didn't even know that I was one of them!
This was a few years before the internet came along and all the attention it has been getting in bodybuilding magazines as of late.
I just knew that I could eat a lot (and I mean anything!) so when I started weight training I kept eating the same way. Brownies, cake, and other junk foods.
Of course I wasn't totally ignorant about diet. I had started doing enough research to find out that you need protein to build muscle.

benching 160 pounds. But that still won't stop people from
noticing that you are improving.
I now bench over 270 pounds at a body weight of 160 pounds and 8
percent body fat. I have larger friends who are naturally strong
and can bench that much.
However, it does not discourage me at all. I know that I am the
best that I can be.
That is what this site is all about. Real hope for real hard gainers.
Please don't give up! You are here for a reason. I honestly believe this site can help you.
