Muscle Building: How To Decide On The Best Workout For An Ectomorph Body Type

By Jeff Kappel

The best workout for an ectomorph is one that that will allow you to grow and evolve as your body gets used to the changes and allows you to make the necessary changes when you need to make them.

As a hard gainer, it's going to be a little more challenging for you when it comes to building muscle mass. This is why it's important for you to be very committed and dedicated to the goals and results that you've chosen for yourself. The most important thing to keep in mind as an ectomorph is that your workouts are best if they don't put excess stress on your body caused by over training.

If you play the work smart role and not the work hard role that most hard gainers play in the gym the odds of you seeing lasting results are much higher. Since most hard gainers don't see results in the first couple weeks they tend to train even harder to get the results, which has an adverse effect on the body by not getting you the results at all.

Here are a few tips that can help you avoid common problems that often impact beginning ectomorph training programs.

1st, this might sound obvious or even beginner, but it's insanely important that you make sure to properly warm up and loosen your muscle groups prior to exercising. So many people just walk in the door of the gym and start working out without warming up. This ends up putting excess strain on your muscles and can actually cause you more harm than good.

Second, most people who are looking to build muscle mass thing that they need to avoid cardio because it will burn excess calories. However, doing the proper cardio will allow hard gainers such as yourself to build muscular endurance and burn fat at rest. This is how you will gain that ripped lean muscle that all ectomorphs are looking for.

Third, if you allow yourself to start lifting heavier to build more muscle you will need to allow your nervous system to recover by giving yourself a little more time to rest between sets.

Fourth, the shorter, yet more frequent workout sessions you give yourself the better. Your workouts will end up being of a higher intensity and being targeted at specific muscle groups so you won't need a lot of time.

Each ectomorph body type is similar, yet different. Make sure that the best workout for you as an ectomorph involves tailoring it to your goals. Eating meals five to six times per day that include complex carbs, low sugar fruit, leafy green veggies, and lean proteins will help fuel your body properly and build that lean muscle.

If you continue to incorporate these tips into your workout you'll see real results in the mirror over time that are sure to please. You will have to do some things that others aren't willing to do. When you do these, you'll also get what they won't.
