    Ectomorph vs Mesomorph vs Endomorph workout

    Hi all,

    I am just wondering is there a difference between the exercises of the various body types or does it not make a difference when it comes to work out?

    Thanks

    Don't worry about it.

    I don't even know what the different types are, let alone which one I think I am. And I don't care.

    My feeling is that body type definitely makes a difference in technique used for a particular lift. That is, since I'm 6'8" my ideal deadlift technique is going to be different than somebody who is 5'8", for example. But in general it doesn't mean that we should train very much different, IMHO.

    BTO, Would you mind sharing your technique? I'm a mere 6'4 but I still find deadlifting often feels like I'm putting my back in a compromised position

    On a separate issue, I have been going to gym for quite awhile but my training lack focus. Should I restart on one of the beginner program available on this forum or should I go for something more advanced?

    I started going gym in 2007 and my workout consist of squats, deadlifts, compound row, bench press, lunges and some machine exercise like lats pulldown, chest fly etc

    Well, are you still a novice?

    *Chances are the answer is YES.

    The simplest programming you can get away with is usually best

    If you don't know the definition, you likely fit it.



    Are you still capable of workout to workout progression on a simple linear programming scheme?


    What are your squat/bench/deadlift?

    Definately a novice.


    Those lifts are quite low and even more imbalanced. Your deadlift should be above your squat, assuming it is not injury or grip limited...unless you are not squatting deep enough. And both should be a lot higher than your bench.
