Workout Plan For an Ectomorph to Gain Muscle Fast.

Ectomorph Workout

If you are an ectomorph and looking for the perfect workout plan to add lean muscle, and bulk up, we have the routine for you. We also have a few diet tips to help you bulk up without adding lower belly fat.

It is not going to be easy. Most ectomorphs are going to need to eat an [almost] insane amount of calories in order to see the results they want.

We recommend you start your day with a protein shake which includes one tablespoon of peanut butter and a banana. You should also load up on some more carbs (remember this is a bulking plan to go with your workout plan). This can come in the form of bread, oats,  or a combination of a few things. In our experience, people tend to workout in the morning so this will also be considered your pre-workout shake / meal. There is absolutely no need to stress about exact minutes to consume this before workout. Generally a good rule of thumb is 30-45 minutes prior to your workout.

Post Workout: Drink another shake, and reach for some eggs, and cereal. Sticking to egg whites is not a bad idea. Yes you are trying to bulk, but keeping your cholesterol low what we call a win-win.

Throughout the day continue to eat every few hours. Don’t load up on trash, just healthy foods that your body can use to build muscle. Chicken, Tuna, and Meat are all good options.

For a complete diet try this article.

The fact of the matter is that weight gain, and more specifically a workout plan that will provide muscle gain is not a secret formula.

Eat more than your body burns. Work out for 1 hour a day 3 out of 4 days.

This sounds simple enough, but in order to get the desired results try following this workout plan.

Remember the cycle will be 3 days on, and 1 day off. Keep cardio to a minimum, and if you are sore from a previous workout, take a day off. No questions asked.

Day 1: Chest / Triceps [3 sets of 10 repetitions]

  • Bench Press
  • Pushups
  • Decline Bench Press
  • Incline Dumbell Fly’s
  • Side Lateral Raises

Day 2: Back / Biceps [3 sets of 10 repetitions]

  • Seated Rows
  • Shoulder Press
  • Pullups
  • Cable Curls
  • Lat Pulldown
  • Hammer Curls

Day 3: Legs / Shoulders [3 sets of 10 repetitions]

  • Military Press
  • Squats
  • Leg Extensions
  • Lunges
  • Barbell Shoulder Press

As with all exercises you should warm up before and please give yourself a 2 minute rest in between sets.

Good luck, and here is to a healthy future!

    Hey,thank you for such great information,I just joined a gym but didn’t know exactly how to go about muscle building,and now I’ve got a clue!!!thnx 2 u!!!!

  6. Tristan says:

    I have come across other conflicting information about the reps. Some sites recommend more sets and less reps with heavier weight. Also we shouldn’t do a lot in the gym because we burn through calories much quicker than the average person.

  7. How to get ripped says:

    I would recommend this workout. Routine is perfectly outline and can perform the routine as long as you are making quality gains. Compound exercises is also good and beneficial for everyone.

    This workout routine is working great for me! Started 1.5 months ago and have put on 8 pounds. Working out 6/7 days of the week feels great and making sure im putting more food then my body can burn. NEVER FELT BETTER!

    Worst workout ever. It’s so amateuristic. I don’t even know where to start. Way too many exercises for the anterior (front) delt. A recipe for shouder injuries.
    Side lateral raises is an exercise that’s meant for the shoulders. Not meant for the triceps.
    I could go on, but I won’t.
