Trying to put on some mass on your bones but failed every time. Eat a lot but still struggling to gain weight, Fed up with the bits of advice given by the trainers, society, friends, and family. So, I decided to write an article on “Ectomorph workout and diet plan” and help you become healthier.
Before proceeding further I recommend you to first read my previous article “Different Body types and workout methods”, in this article you will get basic information about different types of body and their workout methodology.
Here I will give you complete workout guide and diet plan for your body type.
How to Train?
Your training should aim is to improve your testosterone level, which is also known as muscle building hormone. If you do so, then surely you will be able to maximize your gains.
According to Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research If you do compound movements(such as squat, deadlift, bench press, pull-ups, push-ups, etc.) then your testosterone level will increase.
Your workout should not last more than 60 minutes. Take 2-3 minutes of rest between sets and perform all reps slowly, use the weight which you can lift easily without compromising your form. Strictly avoid any type of cardio.
There are so many workouts variations available on the Internet, here I’m going to give you 3 days of workout per week because your type of body requires enough time to recover from an intense workout.
