But primarily, it's the deep inside desire of skinny guys to grow muscle and gain weight. But in the case of overweighted person, they already gained excessive weight, in other words we can say it has fat.

Gaining weight is equally a big deal, when we compare to lose weight. Many have tried and got exhausted in their life, and give up with their goals. There is nothing to get panic. Everything is possible if you have will or desire, so have patience, persistence, consistency, and don't ever try to procrastinate your goals.

Also reduces (MTOR),which is also essential for muscle growth. Sonic sure you eat enough calories to low AMPK and high MTOR.

Calculate your BMR(Basal metabolic rate) by using any app or online calculator, or you can check here.

Multiply 1.8 with your BMR, it gives your daily calories.
Now you can divide this calories in two parts on a daily basis. Try to take 6 meals per day by dividing this calories, and try to eat in every 3 hours. Calories you eat should be in this form,carbohydrate/protien
/Fat:50% , 30% , 20% .
Set up your goal to 1-2lb per week, Which could give you 12-24 lb in 12 weeks, it is a natural and realistic number. Don't expect Too high, more expecting leads to your failure, you get lack of confidence.

Concentrate on eating 4 dinners Complex Carbs and 2 suppers of Simple Carbs. 

Complex carbs (Slow Digesting) are: Oats, Brown Rice, Brown Bread, Sweet Potato, Quinoa,Millet, Brown Rice cake, Wheat Roti, Wheat Pasta, Beans, lentils, and so forth. 

Straightforward Carbs (Fast Digesting) are: Fruits (with low fiber), White Bread, white potato, White Rice, Fruit Juices, Sports drinks, and so forth.

You should also include protein foods in this meals like,: Chicken, Fish, Eggs, Mutton, Milk, Yogurt, Greek Yogurt, Paneer, Soy, Whey, Casein, etc

The extra food you consume will convert into fat. For example you require 3000 calories and you try to eat 3600 calories the extra 600 will turn into fat. You can increase 5 to 10 calories more, not more than that.

2. Progressive overload.

This is actually another common reason, why skinny guys have trouble gaining mass, even though they do hit the gym workout, weight training,strength training, after doing this all stuff that they fail to apply progressive overload. In other words that they don't consistently place a higher level of tension on their muscle, she stayed there consistently do, what their body is already used to and comfortable with which sends their body a signal that there's no need to improve, change the muscle have already adapted to the particular level of stress.So its essential and mainly important to apply progressive overload.
Train 4 to 5 times per week. You should prepare a workout plan.Focus of Heavy compound movements with 8 or less reps which activates Type 2b muscle fibre.Add Drop sets by end of every exercises,take rest in between of 2-3 minutes.If you feel any digestion issue then add Digestive Enzymes it will help in proper breakdown of food for better can have high calories Smoothie, instead of other foods.

You can go to gym and go through with your work trainer or if you want to do individually you can follow these steps,
The first thing the skinny guys can do is compound movements,compound exercises are the moves, which works more than one muscle in your body and they are more efficient and effective for muscle growth.
You should only need to perform exercise 3-4 times per week. At starting don't train more than 60 minutes, overtraining won't give you result, instead you start to lose muscle mass, to gain weight and muscle do not be afraid to lift heavy weights,know the importance of progressive overload.
But the question is, how heavy should I lift? how many pounds? Well it where is individually and varies according to the muscle you work on. The best way to determine the right wait for you, is a you lift, you should be able to to perform 6-8 reps, but no more than and the 12 reps, in the event that you can, at that point increment the weight. Plan your workout in increasing to decreasing order.
