If you are a "Hardgainer", this means you must change your approach if you are going to get good gains. it does not mean you can't build a great body, and work up to very respectable strength levels. It does however mean your approach must be suitable for your body type and metabolism. No, you will never stand on the posing dais with the big boys, or total elite in powerlifting, but you can still get damn big and strong. Stuart McRobert's goals of 300-400-500 (meaning bench, squat, deadlift maxes) are within most trainees reach. But you will NEVER get there doing endless sets and a bunch of lifts per bodypart. In fact for many of you one lift per bodypart will need to be the rule. If your current routine isn't working QUIT waiting for it to somehow "happen". Start training smart!
