Men! What body type do you have?


The ectomorph is your typical skinny type guy. They have a light build with small joints and lean muscle. Ectomorph’s have long thin limbs with stringy muscles & shoulders tend to be thin with little width.

Typical traits of an ectomorph:

·       Small “delicate” frame and bone structure
·       Classic “hardgainer”
·       Flat chest
·       Small shoulders
·       Thin
·       Lean muscle mass
·       Finds it hard to gain weight (needs to consume huge amounts of calories to gain weight)
·       Fast metabolism (which burns up calories quickly)

 Workouts should be short and intense focusing on big muscle groups. I would definately recommend taking Supplements. Ectomorphs should eat before bed or have a slow release protein to prevent muscle catabolism during the night. Generally, ectomorphs can lose fat very easily which makes cutting back to lean muscle easy for them.
