When coming up with your strategy of how to bulk up and gain weight, it is necessary that you determine your body type. There are generally 3 types: ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph. The names sound like something out of a sci-fi movie (or the Might Morphin’ Power Rangers 🙂 ), however it is beneficial for you to determine which of these labels fits your body type the best. Of course, many people can also actually be combinations of these.
usually thin (even skinny), small frame and thin bones, lean muscles, fast metabolism
hard to gain weight
large bone structure, large muscles, athletic
can gain very quickly, however the downside to that is that they can also gain fat quickly
big, solid, soft and round body, stocky, slow metabolism
hard to lose fat
