In the last blog post I disussed some of the trait of the endomorph somatype and how they should diet and eat. Now I’m going to take it to the other extreme and dicuss the ectomorph body type.
The ectomorph is characterized by long and thin muscles and limbs. They typically have low fat storage and are characterized as being slim. In other words these are the douchebag who can eat whatever they want and never worry about gaining weight. Hopefully, there is a special place in hell reserved for thee fools.
As an ectomorph you are naturally slim, but what if you’re not happy with your frame and you want to bulk up and get ripped? Without the proper diet and exercie you would find it very hard to add any significant muscle gain because your metabolism is naturally high and your body type does not pack on muscles
Ectomorphs should focus on doing heay lifting and avoid too much cardio. Thirty minute of cardio 3 time a week is sufficient to maintain cardiovascular health. As an ectomorph it is important to focus on weightt training. Your workouts should be fairly heavy in weights and workout pace slower (longer rest periods between sets) a you are trying to build muscle and not definition. Weight training is very important to an extomorph and its recommended that they incorporate strength training into their workout at least 3-4 times a week. It is important to keep your sets low and a pyramid workout scheme is encouraged.
As ane ectomorph you tend to lose weight fairly easily due to your metabolim, but dont be fooled. You’re still susceptible to chronic diease such as diabete and high blood pressure if you’re diet is piss poor. In order to gain muscle an ectomorph must eat a diet high in calories and full of complex carbohydrate and proteins in order to pack on the lean muscle mass and get ripped. It is important that they get more calories from the proper sources in order to fuel their muscle gain
