The thing is, every person I’ve known that has made the hardgainer claim was training and eating incorrectly —every single one. They were all making several (or in some cases, all) of the following mistakes: working out too little or too much (not giving your body enough rest is severely detrimental to gains), lifting too light and wussy, doing the wrong exercises (relying mainly on isolation machines and not doing compound mass-builders is a sure way to stay small and weak), and eating way less than they should’ve been eating each day.

Sure, your genes determine certain things like which muscle groups tend to be your “strong points,” your hormone levels, how much fat you tend to hold on your body, and where you tend to gain fat, but they’re not standing in your way in terms of gaining muscle or losing fat. You can get in amazing shape if you know what you’re doing. Period. I’ve known quite a few “hardgainers” over the years that have gained 30, 40, and even 50 pounds in their first year or two of training correctly (and with no drugs).
