If you’re skinny-fat and you want to build a lean athletic body, here’s what you need to know

When I was in 9th grade, a girl told me I had “girl boobs.” Despite my ego going all —

— the truth is that being publicly shamed (by someone with actual girl boobs) wasn’t the worst part of the experience.

The worst part was not being surprised by the accusation. I knew I had girl boobs.

I remember worrying about how I looked without a shirt on when I was 8 years old. Growing up, I was notorious for ditching pool parties. Didn’t want to take my shirt off in front of other people.

I used to wear an undershirt on gym class days for the same reason. I’d rather bathe in my own filth than show people what my body looked like without clothes.

My physical abilities matched my appearance. I couldn’t do one solid push-up, let alone one pull-up.

Things are different now.

I no longer have “girl boobs.” I’m no longer skinny-fat. I have a lean athletic x-physique.

This is where I’m obliged to exclaim something like, “If I can do it, you can too!” But I’m not sure that’s true.

Not because it’s not possible, but, rather because it’s not easy. No physical transformation is easy, really. If it were, everyone would look great naked and walk around without clothes.

So don’t get me wrong. Changing your skinny fat body is possible. But you have to avoid the stupidity within the fitness, wellness, whatever industry. If you don’t, you’ll make so many mistakes, just like I did. (I’m looking at you, electrostimulation ab belt.)

That’s why I’m here. That’s why I’m writing this. In this series, I’m going to uncover the most common (and devastating) mistakes most skinny-fat dudes make, as well as the three step skinny-fat system I’ve created.

You don’t need anything fancy. I train in my garage. Alone. I don’t live in a mansion with a personal chef.

You just need to decide.

What is skinny-fat syndrome? Two things every skinny-fat dude needs to do. Muscle tone and definition. “Skinny-Fat Dude.” Underestimating muscle mass and body fat. Insults, most likely. Oops. Burp.
