A. Body Types – (Physique-Classification System)
o Body types can be place in to three main categories.
o Ectomorph – Tall & Lean
o Mesomorph – Large Muscle with naturally athletic physique.
o Endomorph – Shorter and usually a bigger person.
o Mixed – These body types are not set and stone and people can have a combination of two body types.
o We will be going over each type in more detail over the next two months. Tonight we will speak on Endomorph.
o The endomorph body type is solid and generally soft. Endomorphs gain fat very easily. Endo’s are usually of a shorter build with thick arms and legs. Muscles are strong, especially the upper legs. Endomorphs find they are naturally strong in leg exercises like the squat.
§ Soft and round body
§ Gains muscle and fat very easily
§ Is generally short
§ "Stocky" build
§ Round physique
§ Finds it hard to lose fat
§ Slow metabolism
§ Muscles not so well defined
· When it comes to training endomorphs find it very easy to gain weight. Unfortunately, a large portion of this weight is fat not muscle. To keep fat gain to a minimum, endomorphs must always train cardio as well as weights.
· Endomorphic bodybuilders need to get their butts to the gym as often as they can
· One or two cardio days should also be included throughout the week.
· The exercises that an endomorph selects for their workouts need to be compound, high-intensity exercises. Exercises with the maximum amount of muscle recruitment, such as squats, increase potent muscle-building hormones significantly. Plan your workout around these basic movements, with isolation exercises after stabilizer muscles have been exhausted.
C. Health Grilling This Summer!
o More veggies – We don’t eat a lot of veggies bottom line in America.
§ Many different types of vegetables have a wide array of antioxidants and health benefits.
§ Orange veggies like carrots, orange bell peppers and sweet potatoes contain high amounts of vitamin A and C which promote a strong immune system, healthy skin and good vision.
o Meats – Go on the leaner cuts of meats for calorie intake.
§ Fattier cuts of meat include prime rib, chicken thighs, BBQ ribs, sausage and hotdogs. These are higher in calories and should be limited to special occasions.
§ Chicken breast is a nice grilling option since it is low in calories and is a great source of muscle building protein.
o Portion size – Keep size of what is being eaten in mind.
§ Try to portion out your plate with this simple rule: ½ salad and veggies, ¼ lean protein (like chicken, fish or a burger),¼ of either fruit (like fruit salad or watermelon), starchy veggies (potato or pasta salad) or whole grain bread (like a hamburger roll).
3. E-Mails/Phone Calls:
A. From: Dee @All
Comment: I just wanted to congratulate Snowheart, (or Terra), on embracing his inner otter. Remember Terra, teasing is an act of affection. Never let it go too far and turn hurtful. Always be ready to say sorry, kiss and make-up. A thousand welcomes, new ottah!
B. From: FirePlatypus @Syn
Question: What are the major issues you have when working out? Do you favor weights vs cardio the most? Why?
C. From: FoxyKitty @Beastly
Question: When you go to the gym do you try to bike when you go to get cardio out it or do you mostly do cardio at the gym?
D. From: Platypus-Down Under @All
Question: What is the hardest problem with trying to keep to your goals?
E. From: Tibortiger @All
Question: Yeah, winter is over, I'm cutting weight - how low should I go? BMI is bull shit, when should I stop with the caloric restriction? By the BMI charts I should be something like 165 - I haven't weight that little since the 80's.
F. From: Schred @All
Question: - Did you ever see the movie "Saving Grace"?
