Being a ‘hardgainer’ implies that you struggle to gain weight / muscle regardless of how hard you push yourself within the gym. In other words you are in a sticking point, and it seems that no matter how hard you push yourself or how much food you consume your weight will never budge.
There are two main things to understand as a hardgainer: Firstly understand that in order to gain muscle mass you need to be truly pushing yourself and your limits within some form of physical training.
Your body doesn’t just get big for being bigger; it does it as a means to achieve a different adaptation. For example, if you train heavy, more muscle is grown to allow you to be stronger.
With that being said, whenever you are training you need to think about whether or not it would serve an adaptive purpose. In other words, if it’s not challenging you, your body has no reason for change.
With that being said, training hard simply isn’t enough. You have to be training smart too! You could give it your absolutely all to your training, but if all that energy is going to the wrong thing than your time will be wasted.
Secondly you nutrition will need to be on point! Gaining muscle will mostly imply an increase in total body weight – this will need to come from somewhere and that somewhere is extra calories!
In order to gain weight you will need to be in a consistent calorie surplus – which while it can be hard as a “hard gainer” – it’s absolutely doable if you do it right!
