The ectomorph type has a nervous nature, is very active, and eats a lot without gaining weight. It is better suited for endurance sports rather than weight training. For him slimming will be easy And his aesthetic body if he succeeds in muscle gain.
If you constantly pay attention to what you eat and do not stop you from gaining weight or if, conversely, you eat constantly without taking a gram, it is probably not by chance. Scientific research continues to demonstrate that our morphology is based on our genetic.
Rather, we speak of a genetic predisposition for this or that morphology and not "fatality". With proper training and nutrition, you can all have an athlete's body. To present the different morphologies, we will use the Sheldon ranking which is best known for the human body. The three main morphological types are therefore the mesomorph (the most muscular one), the endomorph (the one with the most fat body) and the ectomorph (the thinnest of the 3s).
We rarely encounter these three morphologies under an absolute form, but rather through various combinations. It is recognised in the fitness (bodybuilding) culture that bodies respond differently for nutrition and physical training. Therefore, it is important to identify your body to adapt your diet and your training in order to suit your needs.
Are you Ectomorph, mesomorph, Endomorph or a combination of the 3?
What is an Ectomorph?
The ectomorph: has a great development of the nervous system and brain (ectoderm) and a tendency to be thin, slender, with little muscle mass. It is correlated to the temperament Cérébrotonique said.
- narrow shoulders and pelvis
- Rectangular trunk
- Triangular face
- Long limbs
- Thin or very thin skeleton (thin wrists and ankles)
- Low muscle mass
- Fragile joints
The ectomorphs are nervous, active, tense and sensitive individuals. They can easily be over stimulated by contact with people and need to withdraw (search for intimacy). On the other hand, they can handle a significant amount of mental stimulation, more than any other type because they can block their physical impulses. However, they can be overworked and have difficulty calming their nervous system. This overload is manifested by problems of sleep, digestion or assimilation.
The ectomorph, has a very fast metabolism (do not gain weight), should and can eat a lot because they are in capacity to store body fat. The calorie intake is essential. The fat rate is extremely low. Ability to spend a lot of calories, even at rest.
- hyper caloric portions (high basal metabolic rate).
- Building on carbohydrates: rise and promotes glycogen storage.
- Increase protein rations (2g / kg of body weight).
- Increase fat intake especially for endurance sports (Butter morning - vitamin A-, oil, fatty fish, cashew nuts or pecans ...).
The Ectomorphs are very effective in endurance sports (cycling, running) thanks to their long line and low fat content. On the contrary, they will be penalized in force sports for the same reasons. The major difficulty is weight gain. In order to build up their body, they will have to work hard in bodybuilding and prefer basic exercises and training short (brief and intense kind Force - Maximum) of 45 minute to 1 hour maximum.
=> Warning: the Ectomorph's morphology is troublesome for some exercises (long limbs). It is therefore necessary to be careful not to have too much amplitude on the movements such as the bench press, the squat, the military developed ...
To counter this meager nature and acquire mass, strength training is an effective alternative.
- Fostering a short drive with basic exercises.
- Eating a lot to gain weight, even multiply meals. Force to eat if necessary.
The ectomorph starts with 2 size handicaps for bodybuilding: difficulty gaining weight, fine skeleton that makes the massive appearance difficult.
Nevertheless, it has some advantages:
- La slimming (Fat loss) will be very easy (Natural morphology).
- By the fineness of their skeleton, each additional pound of muscle will be visible automatically and will provide a look muscular / athletic and aesthetic, Without appearing "big beef".
"The ectomorph has little chance of becoming a big bodybuilder, but he can get a dry, muscular and very aesthetic"
For ectomorph, we advise you to make treatments over time. Do not shorten your treatment.
Steroid treatment duration (classical)
- Minimum: 8 weeks
- Maximum: 12 weeks
To be on the safe side, we recommend programs of 10 to 12 weeks.
- Minimum: 10 weeks
- Maximum: 12 weeks

You can use all kinds of products in the steroids, growth hormone and peptides range.
An ectomorph can gain from 5 to 10 kilos with an anabolic treatment.
The success factors are:
- Quality Training
- frequency of training
- food (avoid sauces, white meats promote ...)
