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
· 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.
