Aerobic exercise: as an endomorph you need more cardio than the other body types to lose fat and keep it off; do at least 45 minutes high intensity aerobics 5-6 times a week, preferably in the morning to boost your metabolism for the rest of the day. In addition, get more active during the day - you really need to stay in motion to keep your metabolism up and keep burning calories.
IMPORTANT! If your body type is predominantly Endomorph, you probably hate any type of exercise or intense physical activity. However, keep in mind that of all the three body types, for Endomorphs diet alone is NEVER enough to lose weight, keep it off and shape up. Your slow metabolic rate must be boosted constantly with both strength training and aerobic exercise.
Hi Shane I agree.. Perceptions about ectomorphy often fall into generalisation.. I thought I probably had low test being 6,6″ and 170 pounds for 5 year at 22. Years old !! however I had my test levels checked and actually I fall in top 5% of males for my age more than most mesos.. That’s BEFORE I started training.. Also I used to think I was slow twitch being natural distance runner but actually It’s probably the other way around now.. To those ‘ectos’ out there.. Usain bolt and phelps would be sticks if they hadn’t ever trained .. Don’t let preconceptions sway you ..
