Finding the Right Exercises for your Body Type

Even though we are all built uniquely different.. we can all relate to a specific body type!

What makes a Body Type?

Your metabolism, skeletal proportions and bone density.

What different Body Types are there?

Ectomorph, Endomorph and Mesomorph.

Since body types are quite different, they require specific exercise as well.

Ever heard of the saying.. not all exercise is suitable for everyone? This is why!

Body Type Categories

Ectomorph

Naturally lean with narrow hips and shoulders. Faster metabolism with difficulty building muscle.

Training Tips:

- stick to weight training and workout at a slower pace

- take advantage of rest days and rest periods in between sets (ectomorph muscles need time to heal and build)

- avoid overtraining and HIIT cardio (this can cause muscle breakdown)

My Recommendations:

Weight training 4-5 times a week focusing on proper form and execution of the exercise.

Moderate - minimal cardio.

Eat often and aim to eat 2000+ calories on training days.

The Miss Emma Fit Guide or Full Body Program are my fitness programs suitable for this body type.

Endomorph

Larger bone structure, wide waist/torso. Slower metabolism with a tendency to store body fat.

Training Tips:

- get your heart pumping with HIIT cardio to stimulate fat loss

- moderate weight training

- workout at a faster pace/limit rest periods in between sets (this burns more calories and fat)

My Recommendations:

Weight training 3 times a week.

HIIT cardio 2 times a week (can also be done after your weight training workouts).

Aim to eat 1700-1800+ calories on training days.

The HIIT Program or Full Body Program are my fitness programs suitable for this body type.

Mesomorph

Muscular and well-built. Faster metabolism and responsive muscle cells. LUCKY!

Training Tips:

- train with challenging to heavy weights and workout at moderate pace

- avoid overtraining and excessive HIIT cardio

- take advantage of rest days (to allow your muscles to heal, build and change)

My Recommendations:

Weight training 5-6 times a week with moderate cardio.

Aim to eat 2000+ calories on training days.

The Miss Emma Fit Guide or Full Body Program are my fitness programs suitable for this body type.

TAKE AWAY MESSAGE:

You may not know today or overnight EXACTLY what works best for your body. It has taken me years to find what works best for me (as an ectomorph).

I encourage you to take a test to see what body type you are are stick to the training styles and nutrition recommendations that work best!
