Saw this posted about a year ago, so I'll leave another message to see if any more folks have tried "Scrawny to Brawny". Did it work? I'm just starting now. Curious.
MSUBioNerd saidIsh. I did take their advice to concentrate on multijoint exercises, and go for a small number of reps per set at a higher weight. I also benefited from the suggestions on how to alter form for people with long limbs. I couldn't eat as much as they wanted me to, though--it's just out of my budget, both in terms of money and time. I saw maybe a 5 pound increase in my weight over a few months, but more noticeable strength increases. My goals have largely changed, in that I weigh enough now to not be considered freakishly thin, and I'm more interested in things like cardio function and endurance than was reasonable under their advice. I don't doubt that the advice would work for many, but it got to the point of not being worth it any longer for me.
