Diet Plan and Workout Program
The playing ground is not level in the world of weight loss. The rules of dieting and workout are not applicable to everyone. The subjective issue of losing weight is contingent upon one’s body type.
As many of us know, types of human body are devised into three categories: ectomorph, endomorph, and mesomorph. Since these body types are based on everyone’s genetic predisposition, the variations require varying nutritional necessities as well as fitness training programs.
Starting with the small-boned ectomorph, they generally have a rampant metabolism and a linear physique. Overall, developing muscle mass is a stretch for people with this body frame. If they gain weight it will be in the abdomen. To gain muscle requires significant work to see results.
Exercise recommendations for the ectomorph: Resistance and weight training is the best way to develop strength and ensure the density of the small bones. It should help prevent sporting injuries and fractures as you mature.
Mesomorphs fall between ectomorphs and endomorphs. As a result, they tend to carry a low to medium percentage of body fat. Generally, their bones are medium to large. Their metabolisms teeter in the middle of high and medium. The advantage mesomorphs have over other body types is their tendency to establish significant muscle mass and muscle size.
Exercise recommendations for the mesomorphs: Core, cardiovascular and weight training programs offer the best variety. The balance between these fitness programs is ideal too because it offers equilibrium in losing fat and building muscle.
Generally, endomorphs have high percentages of fat. With large bones and diminutive muscle mass, being overweight is almost inevitable with a sluggish metabolism. In female endomorphs, weight and fat collect in the buttocks, legs, thighs, and hips. However, they are usually more developed in the arms and lower extremities of the legs. Male endomorphs have a tendency of collecting fat in the stomach or abdomen.
Workout recommendations for endomorphs: A minimum of 30 minutes, four times a week, is ideal; particularly engaging in physical activities that include: brisk walking, swimming, bicycling, rollerblading, and other cardiovascular activities.
