Ok, so I recently joined a gym, bought some good vitamins and supplements. I started working out, hitting it hard thinking I was doing all the right things.
I had to be doing something wrong to get the attention from one of the guys who usually frequents the gym. Well, he made me stop doing what I was doing and convinced me to go outside to talk.
We had this long conversation about training and eating. This guy really knew his stuff. He said that I was an ectomorph. I was a little put off, "What the hell is an ectomorph"? He explained that there are thrree body types and the reason why it has be difficult for me to "bulk up" and gain a little weight was simply because of my body type.
It made a whole lot of sense, but I wasn't going to take his word for the truth. I locked myself in a library and researched like I was cramming for an exam.
I am an ectomorph, which explains a whole lot. All this time I am thinking more reps+more weight=Bulk and mass. That my be the gospel truth for someone else, but for me I had to assume an alternate perspective.
Like I said in my previous thread/posts, I am new to weight training. I am about as green and green can be. I am always learning and willing to learn more.
Now, my question is, what kind of workout routine would an ectomorph use?
Please, If you guys have opinions and advice, feel free to comment. I can use all the help I can get.
Thank you all for reading this long post.
