How not to be a Hardgainer - by E. Honan
Are you a ĎHardgainerí? If you think you are a Hardgainer, then thatís
exactly what youíll continue to be. Youíll never make significant progress,
but continue on your plateau. Let me explain.
Your best bodybuilding tool (after PTrainer Fitness Software) is
your brain. Your brain decides how much weight you can lift, when you get
tired, what food you should eat and how much natural hormones and chemicals
to release. Your brain governs everything, including how youíre going to
look. Some people use this to their advantage. Hardgainers use it to their
detriment, and itís their main downfall.
A Hardgainer thinks:
ē Iíll reach my fitness goals someday, if I keep trying.
ē This new supplement or program is the answer! Iíll just buy that and
then Iíll succeed.
ē Itís my genetics.
ē Iíll start my new regime next week.
ē I canít lift that weight; I canít jog for that long.
ē Iím too weak, too fat, or too skinny.
ē Other people succeed because they use drugs or more expensive
ē I just need to get the right rep scheme, or diet. Then Iíll look great.
ē Iím a Hardgainer.
What a Hardgainer does:
ē Tries everything. Tries every diet, program, supplement and regime.
ē Spends lots of money getting nowhere.
ē They read lots of articles (such as this one), but then forget them.
ē They plod along the path of least resistance.
ē They fluctuate. Some times they do make progress, but then lose it all.
Some times they do not progress at all.
ē Progress painfully slowly.
So, are you a Hardgainer? Do you look the same as you did last year? Does
your waist never get slimmer, or your body fat reduce? IF this is the case,
you are probably a hard gainer.
How do you stop being a hard gainer?
The first step is to stop thinking you are a Hardgainer. Everyone is
different, and everyone progresses at different levels. Some people are more
positive than others. You have read this far, so you have the potential to
stick it out for a few more weeks and meet your goals. Other people simply
want results, but can be bothered to find out how to get them.
From now on, you are not a Hardgainer. You are a winner! This is your first,
and most important step and you just got it free from Silver Onion Fitness
Software. As a winner, you have to think like a winner, and the word will
become flesh. Congratulations, youíve just abandoned your excuses! Now there
is no reason not to succeed. You can now use your brain to your advantage.
What a winner thinks:
ē Iím reaching my fitness goals now.
ē I can lift that weight or jog that distance.
ē There are no magic pills, programs or diets.
ē Iím doing it now.
ē I have great genetics.
ē I donít need drugs; I can do it without them. Other people have, and so
A winner can see the progress that they are making.
