How would you define a “hardgainer”? What are the distinguishable characteristics of someone in this category?
In today’s episode, Andrea, Alberto, and Jeff take the classification of “hardgainer” and break it down into three different subtypes: those who don’t eat enough, those who are low responders to resistance training, and those who are near their genetic potential. After making these distinctions, the coaches go through each type of hardgainer one by one giving nutrition and training tips for each type.
