Look my friend you’ve got to know that the muscle-building process is an extremely slow process you’ve got to follow very strict discipline years after years.

If you are trying to find any shortcut way then I need to tell you there’s no shortcut in bodybuilding. Our body does not promote muscle to grow, the body’s first priority is reproduction and survival. It will never develop muscle size unless you force your body to grow muscle externally.

That means you’ve got to work out for that. In this modern era, fitness is that the new trend everyone dreams of getting broad shoulders and a little waist muscular physique but it’s impossible for everybody.

For that, you simply have to exert and you need a lot of motivation and dedication. So, if you’re that one person together with your own mindset and have dedication for your dream. Then this article from Health and Fitness will definitely assist you to spot your somatotype and choose your workout plan wisely.

Before moving towards the workout plan we must realize the physical body type first which will assist you in the future to settle on your workout plan wisely.

Knowing your somatotype is extremely important because different somatotypes require different workout and diet plans.

Even the supplement recommendation is completed totally on the idea of somatotype. Just mimicking anyone else workouts won’t work for you.

There are three sorts of body type

  1. Ectomorph
  2. Endomorph
  3. Mesomorph

Lets define these body type in details:-

1-Ectomorph –

They are skinny guys with soft and delicate body frames. they’re tall. They find muscles building a bit harder. The body is lean like marathon runners.

2- Endomorph

broad and sturdily built.Widebody frame.slow metabolism. Store much body fat. develop muscle but that mostly has fat in it. The body contains a sizable amount of fat tissue.

3- Mesomorph

They are naturally athletic build. Grow muscle easily. Metabolism is high. They are compact and muscular

Here don’t get demotivated my friend, simply because you’re ectomorph or endomorph. Don’t think you can’t grow muscle.No, you can also build an aesthetic physique by following a proper diet and workout.

So, now let’s realize the nutrition for the particular body types

1- Ectomorph

Consume mostly carbohydrates and protein than your fats from your diet. your carbohydrate should be 60-70% and protein should be 20-30% and the other 10% are going to be your fat. Consume at least 500-600 calories from diet per day for gain.

Always remember you’ve got to try to do a calorie surplus that means consume more calories and burn less. Only thanks to growing big.

2-Endomorph

Consume mostly protein and fats from the diet. Avoid eating a lot of carbs. Your diet should contain 60-70% of protein. Consume good and healthy fats from nuts, fish cheese and consume carbs from fruits, vegetables.

3-Mesomorph

Mesomorph somatotype will best respond to a high protein diet. But do not forget to consume healthy fats and don’t avoid carbs too. Doing so you’ll degrade the anabolic process of your body.
