Help a Hardgainer Build Muscle

Take a look at this video and then make suggestions in the COMMENTS. I'll give you a hint: He's overtraining 🙂

He's doing 20 sets + for nearly every body part! That's about 5-10 TIMES too much! He needs to simplify, get really good at a couple of lifts (okay, 5 – Squat, Bench, Row, Press, and Deadlift) and don't ever do anything to failure! Leave one in the tank.

Why? As a true hardgainer, you run an increased risk of overtraining, which, in short, means that you're not giving your body the resources it needs to rebuild and grow bigger and stronger.

Tell me what else is wrong in the Comments! (It's a long list.)

Great stuff here!
