There's a lot of down talk about being an ectomorph on exercise sites. Men call it bad genes and hard gaining. I want to give being an ectomorph the positive spin it deserves. Here re few thought on why I like to be an ectomorph.
1. I was in the gym the other day and realized that because I'm an ectomorph my muscles seem bigger because they are on a light frame. In fact other men who are much stronger than I don't seem to have as much of a definition. So..., that seems like a real benefit of being an ectomorph.
2. Also I thought how we can carry extra weight
less easily than mesomorphs and certainly endomorphs. That means we have to do something about extra weight sooner before it gets to be a BIG problem. I've never been big-time heavy.
3. A third benefit is that it's great for swimming. We are just thinner and can glide through the water more easily. Good for jogging, too.
