I work out, but I don't have the kind of body I would like even though by laymen's standard it's in good (acceptable) height and weight. I am beginning to be convinced that when it comes to building muscles, over-training is worse than under-training. I think muscle size and shape is mostly genetic even if you work-out and do high protein diet. What is your suggestion to someone with an average or below average genetic for putting on muscles?

even i was in such a suituation but now there is a lot of difference in my body. what each and every bodybuilders do is maintain a strict diet and reduce your weight you must burn considarable fat from your body only then your body will prepare to increase bulk then you must do offseason workouts for sixmonths which is a bulk workout with a very protine diet then for the next season maintain the same protine diet and go for a heavy workout with in one your form of your body changes entirely

There is no fast way, you just have to Lift hard and heavy. Give your body time and keep training.

Want to get huge? Want to add slabs of beef to your frame? Than you will have to lift heavy and lift hard! You will have to use high intensity techniques built into your weight lifting routine. In order to create large amounts of muscle growth you need to damage the muscle to a certain extreme for your muscles to respond, repair and grow into strong, healthy muscles. You certainly won't build large muscles using light weight and high repetitions. I hate to break this to you but the only way to get huge is to lift huge. Lift hard and heavy. Unless you are a genetic freak, the only way to pack on the muscle is to lift heavy and lift strict.
