Get to know yourself and especially your morphotype

 Get to know yourself and especially your morphotype

Equal Rights But Not Everyone Is Equal: It may seem unfair at first glance but we are not all equal when it comes to weight loss or

 muscle gain. In fact, each person has his own form, basically, his own silhouette that corresponds to very specific characteristics that are especially associated with gender.

Your metabolism can be a real ally or, on the contrary, put some obstacles in the way of you and the achievement of your goals. But be warned, this does not mean that it is the only criterion to take into

 account because you are unique and your anatomy is just like you. Below, you'll learn more about body types and our suggestions for exercise/diet, but keep in mind that what follows is a theory based on psychological data and not a proven scientific fact**.

While you wait to calmly finish reading this article, find your free body scan here. The latter will allow you, in a few minutes, to learn more about your BMI, to take advantage of convenient nutritional advice as well as suggestions for other health products and supplements.

The three types of morphology: ectomorph, endomorph and mesomorph

First, let's talk briefly about body types. There are three: ectomorph, endomorph and mesomorph.. Everyone has their own physical characteristics resulting from genetics. Reading the following, you might tell yourself that you fit not into one, but two, and this is

 perfectly normal: you cannot associate all characteristics with one type of silhouette. The most important thing is to take into account your athletic history as well as your diet over the past few years and

 also the fact that its effect on shape varies from person to person (for an individual, the way you eat will have a greater impact on his silhouette while for another, it will be a sport). Hormonal status (sex hormones and thyroid in particular) is also a factor to consider.


ectomorph type

Physically, people who fall into this category are naturally thin and thin, or even skinny. Their arms and legs are long, and their torso is rather short. In general, its skeleton is the thinnest of the three body types, especially around the ankles and wrists.

In terms of metabolism, this type of morpho stores little fat. It may sound ideal, that way (who wouldn't dream of eating all they want without gaining - or almost - a gram), but it's still a huge

 inconvenience if the target group is gaining muscle mass. In fact, the nutrients essential for muscle growth are difficult to assimilate and the physical condition that results in it is said to be fragile. The

 temperament of this type of figure can be described as generally irritable. In the world of sports, he is nicknamed the "Hard Winner".

Physical maintenance / bodybuilding nutrition and distribution on the plate

Focus on all the muscles of the body and prefer a short workout (about 45 minutes per session) but an intense workout with core exercises.

The average of the so-called endurance (or cardio) sports sessions.

Do not (above all) skip the recovery stages, they are necessary for this morphology.

Concretely, you should do this:

muscle strengthening

Core and isolation exercises

Stretching and relaxation exercises

Multiply meals (4 to 5 per day) to ensure you absorb the essential nutrients and feel free to force yourself to eat a little even if you're not hungry.

If necessary, use nutritional supplements.

Theoretical distribution in the painting:

25% protein

55% carbohydrates

20% fat

For Mass Gaining: Essential Whey Protein

For your daily protein: delicious chocolate bars

For recovery: our recovery aminos


endomorph type

People included in this type of figure have more generous forms by nature, rather short arms and legs as well as wide hips. Their metabolism is generally slow, which leads to low energy and a

 tendency to gain weight (rapid storage of fat), especially around the abdomen. Unlike the previous shaping style, its ability to develop muscle mass is easier and faster. In short: a well-rounded physique but plenty of athletic power with the added benefit of fast regeneration.

Physical maintenance / bodybuilding nutrition and distribution on the plate

To stimulate metabolic activity and increase calorie expenditure, boost your long, intense gym sessions.

The ideal option would be a combination of endurance (cardio) exercises and weights.

Our concrete recommendations:

Strength exercises for all parts of the body

Inner core (HIIT, CrossFit, etc.)

outdoor endurance sports (swimming, cycling, hiking, etc.)

Eat several meals, preferably low-calorie, per day (6-8 meals or replace some with a protein alternative).

Cut down on fast sugars and bad fats as much as possible, especially after 4 p.m.

Lean proteins associated with vegetables are preferred from the complex carbohydrates category.

The theoretical distribution in the panel gives the following:

45% protein

35% carbohydrates

20% fat

mesomorph type

This morphotype describes naturally athletic people who already have muscle mass in place. A great advantage to sculpt your body with relative ease. Visually, the upper body is longer and wider than

 the outer figure, but the waist remains thin. Nutrient absorption of this form is optimal, as fat mass is easily lost and storage is slow. In

 terms of recovery, again, this type of photo has everything good because it's easy. Males in this category usually have a silhouette with a V-shaped cut, while females have a pelvis the same width as their shoulders.

Physical training divided into two parts with a difference between light and heavy loads. This morphotype manages a series of sessions better than the others due to its quick recovery and resistance.

Conversely, too many sports facilities can lead to a loss of motivation.

Concretely, this should be provided:

basic exercises

isolation exercises

Diverse sports training

It is recommended to eat 5-6 meals per day, and complex carbohydrates are given priority over proteins and fats.

On a board level, here's what's theoretically recommended:

30% protein

55% carbohydrates

15% fat

** Note that it is convenient and interesting to know your figure type in order to adjust your training program and diet, but we recommend looking at this theory above as a general idea and not an established scientific fact. In fact, it mainly refers to psychological data and

 genetics, and even if a general pattern can be applied to a particular figure, each person has a different body, metabolism and unique needs. The important thing is to always maintain a balance between

 diet and sports activities and learn about a customized program from experts in the field of nutrition / sports in order to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
