The type of body you were born with will decide how you train so that you’re always maximising your time in the gym. There are three main body types:
In this article, Beast Gear runs the rule over all three so that you’re able to put together a programme that suits you best.

Let’s begin with …
The ectomorph is the perennially skinny person who we’re all jealous off as we get older. He seems to eat double his body weight each day yet never piles on the pounds. Instead, he’s a lean machine for life. If this is you - kudos.
Of course, ectomorph’s aren’t alwaysthat happy themselves because they’ve got a huge problem: They find it hard to gain muscle mass.
Here are some training tips for the ectomorph body type:
The mesomorph is basically the ideal. When you think of all the best bodybuilders, they pretty much had a mesomorph body type with narrow hips and wide clavicles. They also had big enough joints so that they could support large muscle mass.
If you’ve got a mesomorph body type, here are some training tips:
The endomorph has the slowest metabolism out of all the three body types. Unfortunately, guys who have an endomorph body type store fat more than average and tire easier. They also have a pretty voracious appetite and generally find it hard to lose weight.
All is not lost, though. With the right training program in place, endomorph’s can reach their fitness, health and strength goals. The pressure is on, however, to burn all that fat.
Here are some training tips for endomorphs:
In summary, no body type will have it easy when it comes to their training regime. While ectomorph’s definitely don’t need to train as hard as ectomorph’s, and while they can take longer rest periods, there’s still work to be done andany workout is going to be demanding. After all, if you start to slack, you won’t see the gains you’re looking for.
Whatever your body type, make sure to set some goals and put the work in that will bring you closer to them each week.
