Skinny-fat hell

We asked the guys on our Outlive newsletter what the biggest issue they were struggling with was.

We got dozens of messages like these:

Nobody likes it when you try to bulk up and put on some mass and you just end up packing on the pounds all at the gut. Especially when the goal was to get bigger, yeah, but also with a ripped six-pack.

To make things worse, we've all seen the countless transformations of guys getting incredible results from online programs.

But too often, when guys follow those same programs—it doesn't work for them. Why not?

Going beyond "eat big, lift heavy"

There are hidden factors that are missing from their life that plateaus their results and make them fatter instead of stronger when trying to bulk up.

The even bigger problem is that these factors aren't just preventing them from reaching their aesthetic, attractive, healthy, and strong body.

Aside from packing on stubborn belly-fat onto their skinny frames, these same problems are also:

  • eroding their health
  • contributing to balding
  • making their erection less hard
  • making them get sick more often
  • and aging them more quickly through inflammation.

But the good news is that once they figure out what these factors are, they're relatively simple (and cheap) to fix.

And this is why we created the True Gains program.

Not just possible—predictable

True Gains is a cutting-edge, research-backed, and wholesomely healthy program to get you bigger, leaner, and fitter—all at the same time.

In fact, it's the only muscle-building system that we've seen talking about these hidden factors, that many fitness pro's are already doing without thinking about it. (Whether it be chance, intuitiveness, etc.)

We reference over 125 peer-reviewed studies—using cutting-edge science to develop the protocols. (Many of the studies we referenced for building this program were published in 2019–2020, and some are so new they haven't even been printed in journals yet.)

To be clear, True Gains isn't a silver bullet or a pill you can swallow.

Like other workout and nutrition programs, it'll be hard work.

But it'll be the right type of work, finally leading to the rightful payoff.

The specifics matter—especially if you're skinny-fat.

A regular bulking program is meant for ripped skinny dudes.

A regular diet program is meant for guys who are already huge with muscle to spare from sub-par strategies.

Some guys acheive a remarkable body because they're naturally doing these things in their life without trying. You'd never know it, and neither would they.

But now, with True Gains, we'll show you what you need to do, so that you too can begin reaping rapid gains while getting leaner—and leave the skinny-fat body behind forever.

The workout plan

True Gains Lifting Program

A 90-day three-phase complete exercise program (lifting, light "cardio," & more)

These printable workouts are designed to help you build muscle, burn fat, improve your fitness, and includes a daily type of exercise that can radically improve your health and melt stubborn belly fat.

The lifting program is designed to build a manly and attractive body. The work is weighted towards building:

  • Thick, and athletic looking neck (no more weak looking pencil neck)
  • A wide back and broad, cannonball shoulders
  • A developed upper and lower chest
  • Visible abs and more athletic obliques
  • A bit of arm work too.

The warm-ups are designed for guys who typically sit a lot, helping with shoulder mobility and beginning the process of getting rid of upper-lower cross syndrome (anterior pelvic tilt.)

"Normal Mode" or "Hard Mode" workouts

In the program we include two versions of the workouts.

  • Normal mode is for someone who has a lot on their plate, and wants to ease into a workout to make it easier to form a habit. They might have kids, a stressful job, etc.
  • Hard mode is for someone who sees a challenge as an opportunity to become stronger, smarter, or more competent. It is for people who are autonomous and follow through, and are willing to put more work in and focus on recovery if it means faster results.

True Gains Hard Mode

What equipment is needed?

These workouts can be done either at home or at a gym. You might do best if you have a home-gym or you work close to a gym though, because working out more often (but much shorter sessions) will help you get the best results (we'll teach you why high-frequency workouts are best for skinny-fat guys in the program.)

You can do everything with just:

  • Two adjustable dumbbells, heavy enough to challenge you.
  • An adjustable bench.

If you have access to a barbell and pull-up bar—that's even better.

Here's what a few guys thought:

"Backed by science... Loved the little details"

"I loved the structure of the course. Every section builds upon each other, is backed by science and gives actionable steps.

The members area is easy to navigate and a lot of attention has been put into giving you enough information to understand why certain things are given to you, without it being overwhelming or taking up your entire day.

As a self-proclaimed nerd of fitness and self-improvement, I loved the little details that were given. It's also fantastic to see it being updated and expanded upon. You know you're getting in on a product which has a team that cares about what they're putting into this world. One with a stellar reputation."

Deans TestimonialDean Phillips—Superhuman Lab

"Shed so much light as to why stubborn belly fat sticks around so much"

"The program is awesome, and has shed so much light as to why stubborn belly fat sticks around so much. For me, the best parts of the program were the science behind it and article links supporting Jared's teachings."
–JJ B

"Works very well"

"So far, so good. I am doing the Hard Mode and finding it works very well. After about 6 weeks, I am already noticing upper-body results that have taken me to a new level."
–Cinqué

"I am progressively overloading while visibly losing fat"

"I have lost fat so far about 7 weeks in. Further, I am progressively overloading (either a rep or so higher than the previous time I performed the exercise or a bump in weight) while visibly losing fat. So, it would seem that at least to some extent I am seeing body recomposition.

I indeed like the ebook better than the videos as it is easier to go back and refer to something that I want to go back to. I can more easily search text that figure out which video is the right one and find the right spot in the video.

I both like and don't like lower focus on lower body. On the plus side, I see that it lets my body spend more energy on protein synthesis on getting my upper body while not letting my lower body drop into decline. The reason I don't like it I believe is just a mental hurdle that the greatest indicator of strength is the size of a mans legs and how much he can squat or deadlift. But I would rather see some growth in my upper body while staying the same in my lower body rather than seeing virtually no growth in my body at all."
–Spencer

"It just feels good... wasn't sure what was wrong with me"

"Still progressing through it. But added a goal to get more walks in, that has had a direct effect of increasing my energy levels. It just feels good. I also have hope that I can actually fix my health which is a great thing, as I wasn't sure what was wrong with me."
–Rohan

"I do appear to be losing some fat"

"My results so far have been an initial loss of weight followed by maintenance in weight. I do appear to be losing some fat.

My favorite part of the program is the reverse flys every day, since this is the first increase in back measurements I have seen in a long time.

One thing I have struggled with in hardcore mode is time. Partly it is because I am awful at maintaining reasonable rest periods when working out at home which makes my workouts too long and not metabolically stressful, but I feel like it isn't possible to get 10,000 steps, workout, cook a healthy meal of whole foods and enough protein, and get 8-9 hours of sleep every day. If there is any social obligation on the calendar, like dinner with family or seeing a movie with friends, I inevitably fail to meet one of those goals and end up resenting the program sometimes. Or I eat the same batch meal for a week straight, which is demoralizing.

That said, I don't think a 3/week workout program would have helped me lower my body fat% like this program has."
–Sam

"Losing fat faster than I have before"

"So far I’ve been losing fat faster than I have before. I have a lot of energy and better sleep quality. Looking forward to more fast progress."
–W G

"Like it's made specifically for me"

"The story of how True Gains came about is basically my story. I work a desk job mostly and my posture is taking a hit, along with a bunch of little aches and pains all over the place I believe are from being too sedentary. True Gains sounds like it's made specifically for me and is a simple guide that even I can understand and follow."
–Robert

"Seeing strength gains and extra definition in the mirror"

"I like the variety of rep ranges and the mix of barbell and dumbbell, bilateral and unilateral, and anti-rotation exercises.

I like how I'm able to slightly modify the Hard Mode and fit it in to 45 minute sessions M-F + 60 to 75 minutes on Saturday.

It requires focused attention throughout the day (get in your steps, get sunlight, etc.) but doesn't consume my life the way b2B full on bulking phases did.

I'm only in my 1st week of Phase 2, but I'm seeing strength gains and I can see some extra definition in the mirror.

Weight has only gone up a small amount so I need to bump my calories a bit in Phase 2 and see if I can gain a little more than I did in Phase 1."
–Kevin

"The videos are kinda awkward (to be blunt), but I have lost some fat."

–Lee

"Made me feel much better"

"I like the way the program is set out - here's how to lift/get active, here's how to eat, and here's some rituals like sun exposure and elimination of blue light. Compartmentalising it like that makes it easy to understand and follow.

The best part for me is how thoroughly researched it is. Every assertion in the course is supported by evidence.

I started increasing my steps and sun exposure from day 1, which alone made me feel much better. I mean mentally it made me feel good about myself that I was actively breaking up long periods of sitting.

I didn't fully commit to the lifting aspect of the program until the start of the new year but since then I have enjoyed the workouts and am noticing slight strength gains accompanied by a more athletic/muscular appearance."
–Brett
