23: Muscle Building for Skinny Guys

One for the skinny guys!

Back in late spring of this year I (Marc -- the skinny one of the two) started a strength-training program called Bony to Beastly. I know, the name almost sent me running, but I took a closer look. I found that the three guys behind this program are very similar to Anthony and I in that we self-experiment to get the results we desire. Additionally, one of their cofounders is a strength and athletic performance coach who trained under well known coaches Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson. Their natural approach to nourishment, exercising and recovering smart, and creating an engaging community of likeminded ectomorphs to keep participants focused on the process as opposed to the goal all account to my joining their program. I’ve so far put on 7 to 8 healthy pounds, revamped how I think about the food I eat and just overall have a more productive time working out either at home or the gym. I’ve repeated phases, lost my way due to extended camping trips in the woods and am thinking about what will happen as I continue to increase my cardio as I train for Ironman Lake Placid July of 2017 but I’m not looking to be “swole” or a beast. I’m glad to have learned how to gain more power, lift smarter and eat massive amounts of clean foods without ruining the rest of my day. Give the episode a listen and let us know what you think below!
