Most often, these people would have an over-developed digestive system and they would often find it difficult to lose their weight. Also, these people would generally gain muscles much easily.

These people should strictly follow their diet and exercises in order to build their body perfectly. To start off, go for smaller meals and eat them several times in a day. The best exercise to start is your aerobic activities. This should be regular and you must do these for a minimum of thirty minutes in a day for five to seven days in a week. You can implement your weight training from thereby.

Mesomorph:

Your exercise should include ‘resistance training’ which you need to do at least two or three times in a week. Also, you must include your aerobic exercises.

Ectomorph:

These are the people who are so thin and would have a flatter chest. Their bodies will be so delicate and they would appear younger than they are. These people would be taller and would have stoop shoulders. In general, these people would find it difficult to gain their muscles.

On an average, you need to add at least 500 to 1000 more calories in a day for five to seven days. When it comes to exercises, you need to choose compound moves. This way, you are trying to build more than one muscle group at a time thereby allowing lots of recovery time. The best exercises could be:
