Mesomorph Training & Nutrition Tips
- The mesomorph will find it relatively easy to build muscle mass, but needs to include a variety of exercises in the program to ensure that the muscles develop proportionately and well shaped, rather than thick and bulky.
- The Mesomorph should place emphasis on quality, detail, and isolation training, along with basic mass and power exercises. As the mesomorph builds muscle easily, priority should be placed on working on shape and separation right from the beginning.
- Mesomorphs gain weight so easily that they don’t have to worry much about conserving energy or overtraining. A standard workout of 16 to 20 sets per body is fine for the mesomorph. Additionally, they can train with as much or as little rest between sets as suits them.
- A balanced diet with plenty of protein is recommended for mesomorphs at a calorie level so that the physique is maintained within 5 to 7 kilos off contest weight all year round. Bulking up beyond this and then having to strip the excess weight is not recommended.
- The mesomorph should train with emphasis on training for quality and detail as they gain weight easily, and do not want to become too blocky. Energy levels are not a problem for the mesomorph. mesomorphs should stay close to competition weight year round.
