Bodybuilding Body Types

What are the different body types?

If you look around it is easy to see that there are all different types of bodies. There are some people that are naturally skinny, some that are naturally fat and some lucky people that are naturally muscular.

But the good news is you do not have to be stuck with the type of body you have now, with correct diet and exercise you can change your body closer to what you would consider ideal for you.

The first step is knowing what your body type is and how to correctly workout and how to eat for that body type.

How to workout and diet for your body type?

Below are the three basic body types:

Ectomorph body type

The ectomorph is the naturally skinny body type; they are usually tall, thin with long legs and arms. While some ectomorphs have almost no bodyfat, there is also the skinny person that is also smooth or has a slight belly. Many ectomorphs do well in endurance activities such as running because they tend to have a lot of nervous energy. But that does not mean an ectomorph can't build a muscular body.

Ectomorph workout and diet

You should only train three days a week, such as Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and concentrate on getting strong in the big basic exercises such as the squat, deadlift, bench press, barbell row, press over head, curls and triceps extensions. Do not waste energy and calories on cardio, sports, dancing, etc. at least until you are happy with your bodyweight and muscle size.

You should cut out sugar and junk food and make such that you are eating many small means throughout the day consisting of good healthy foods. Such as eggs, beef, chicken, fish etc. for protein. Bread, pasta, rice, oatmeal, etc. for carbohydrates. And avocados, nuts, seeds, olives, etc. for healthy fats.

Mesomorph body type

The mesomorph is the naturally muscular or athletic body type, they usually have wide shoulders with a small waist and hips. They have an easier time building muscle and losing fat than the other two body types, but they still need to workout and eat right if they want to get the best results.

Mesomorph workout and diet

To gain muscle workout 4 days a week, and hit each muscle twice per week using both basic and isolation exercises. For example on legs you would do squat as well as leg extension and leg curl. Do some moderate cardio such as brisk walking at least twice a week to exercise your heart and keep you body fat level down.

Also stay away from junk foods and eat several small meals a day. Keep you protein intake high along with a moderate carbohydrate and fat intake.

Endomorph body type

The endomorph is the naturally fat, smooth or round body type, they usually have an easy time getting big and strong but a harder time getting lean and showing muscular definition. Many become powerlifters, but it is still possible to get in bodybuilder shape even for the endomorph is they train and eat right.

Endomorph workout and diet

It's best to workout 6 days a week, and hitting each muscle twice per week using both basic and isolation exercises. You should also include some intense cardio every workout day to boost your metabolism and burn fat.

Needless to day do not eat junk food, but do eat several small high protein, low carbohydrate and low fat meals a day.

Be consistent with the above rules and no matter what your body type is you will see results towards your goal of having the best body you can have.
