totally contradicts about a million other articles on training for ectomorphs
[color=#000040]I am not sure where you are getting that information.
There is plenty of it stating that Ectomphs obtain better results with high intensity, low volume training.
As ranking memeber of the ectomprph society, I have personally found high intensity, low volume to be more effective in obtaining results.
and plenty stating the opposite. I have read countless times that long limbed individuals need more isolation work for the limbs, particularly shoulder and arms, and are more slow-twitch in general so respond better to higher rep ranges.
That was certainly true in my case, and I absolutely fit the classic definition of ectomorph.
The problem I have with the article though is to suggest that all ectomorphs need to train the same. Different people will respond to different things. The fact that you respond better to low volume, high intensity and I respond better to the opposite with both of us being ectomorphs just proves that there is no one way that an ectomorph, or any other somatype for that matter, should train.
