Does Body Type Matter for Building Muscle?
Heads-up, warrior. If you're looking to build muscle and sculpt that dream physique, you better believe that your body type matters. You may have wondered whether body type actually has any impact on the kind of workouts you should be doing. The short answer is: yes, it does.
Here's the deal: Different body types respond differently to workouts. And while we'd never say it's fair to overgeneralize by trying to cram every single shape and size of human into a small handful of "body type" classifications, there is solid logic behind the method.
While everyone is unique, your general body type can 100% affect your muscle-building potential, and govern what types of exercises your muscles will respond to - or not, as the case may be.
Whether you're an ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph, athletic build, or have a skinny-fat physique, each have unique strengths and weaknesses that need to be taken into account if you want to see real progress.
In this guide, you'll discover which body type you most likely fall into based on your physical characteristics, and how to leverage what you've got for maximum muscle gains.
So, let's cut to the chase and dive into the best muscle-building workouts for each body type.
