Here’s how to train for each of the three body types. To begin, there are three basic body types, which are as follows:
- Ectomorphs have a short upper body, long arms and legs, long narrow feet and hands, and little fat storage. This body type has a narrow chest and shoulders, as well as long, thin muscles.
- The Mesomorph has a large chest, a long torso, a solid muscle structure, and is extremely strong.
- Endomorphs have short musculature, a round face, a short neck, wide hips, and a lot of fat storage.
If you fall somewhere in the middle of two body types, the training recommendations would be a middle-of-the-road approach.
The ectomorph’s primary goal is to gain weight and muscle mass. The development of muscle mass is very slow in ectomorphs. Continue with the basic exercises and incorporate power moves that will help you gain the most muscle mass. Complete the entire training session, but take longer rest periods if necessary.
Consume more calories (good quality food, not junk) and eat more frequently than you are accustomed to, as well as use weight-gaining and protein drinks to supplement your food intake. To save calories for muscle building, keep cardio training to a minimum.
The mesomorph finds it simple to gain muscle mass by incorporating a variety of exercises into their routine so that the muscles develop proportionately and shapely rather than bulkily. A combination of heavy power moves and a variety of shaping exercises, as well as a more varied program, for improved physique quality, proportion, and symmetry. Long workouts with little rest. Because the mesomorphic type responds well to training, long sessions are not required. A well-balanced diet with plenty of protein and an even calorie intake at all times. Keep an eye out for any slow, creeping fat gain.
The endomorph will have little difficulty building muscle but must be concerned with losing fat weight and being careful not to gain it back. High-repetition, high-set training with short rest periods to burn as much fat as possible. Additional aerobic exercise to burn calories. A low-calorie diet that provides the necessary nutritional balance while consuming the least amount of protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Make sure you’re getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals for your body. You should reduce your calorie intake (but not to the point of starvation) and eat small, frequent meals. Sugars, sweets, and junk food should all be avoided in your diet. Engage in some form of physical activity on a daily basis, such as brisk walking, biking, etc. and make an effort to spend more time each week.
Your goal should be to resemble (or remain reminiscent of) a mesomorph. This is something that can be accomplished with the right exercise and diet.
