There are a bajillion little tactics an ectomorph can make use of to put on some weight and build some muscle. But I realize how overwhelming that can be. It’s important to understand a few simple fundamentals on muscle building for the ectomorphic body type, and then you can apply these ideas to pretty much any approach.

Intensity is greater than quantity:

Doing 100 reps of really quick and shallow push ups is less effective than doing 10, slow, deep push ups with proper form. Focus on making every rep count with a high level of intensity, and a complete lack of momentum.

Eat more:

You need to learn how to eat more. As a skinny guy (or a “hardgainer” as we’re referred to at times) we can feel like we’re eating heaps, but we’re not. Start eating more food and don’t stop. You need to eat more.

Rest more:

Because of the intensity involved in ectomorphic workouts we also have to make sure to rest more. This may mean you only workout 2-3 times per week, but don’t feel “guilty” for not being more active. The goal isn’t more activity, the goal is more effectiveness. Be an effective muscle builder by giving your body the rest it needs.
