Body types: Ectomorph
Body type plays a major role in influencing how you respond to diet and training regimes. The better you know your body, the easier it is to attain the physical target you want your body to achieve. There are three basic body types and they'll be discussed in the coming weeks.
The ectomorph is our typical skinny person who seems to eat and eat but never gets fat. Ectos have a small build with a small skeletal structure, high metabolic rate and lean muscle mass. They lose fat very easily but find it difficult to gain muscle mass. They lose muscle slower than other groups too. They require a large calorie intake coupled with short intense workout sessions which focuses on big muscle groups. Inclusion of vitamin supplements in diet is highly recommended.
