An ectomorph body type is usually a lanky, thin person. As you gain weight, your body becomes shaped tube-like. This body types tends to have very little muscle tissue, and may find it hard to put on weight. Adding unhealty fat weight may end up near your abdomen, waste, or thighs with a droopy look. Your overall metabolism rate is faster than some other body types, but not fast enough to keep you lean. It may also be difficult for you to burn enough calories to keep from gaining weight. To get a good look, you must add lean muscle through resistance training.
