8 Weeks Ectomorph Workout Routine



After you’re done with the beginner workout routine, this ectomorph workout routine is a good one to continue.

Note: only do this if you have at least reached an intermediate level.

Note: the beginner workout routine is a full body routine, which we will eventually burn out on. Should you switch from that routine to this, take a full week off first.

This workout routine is based on a upper/lower split.

However, traps and forearms are included with the days where you train lower body because they are involved in a large degree, especially during deadlifts.

Although there are 4 days reflected here, only do 3 workouts for each week.

e.g.

Week 1: workout 1, 2,3
Week 2: workout 4,1,2
Week 3: workout 3,4,1
Week 4: workout 2,3,4

Remember to warm up before commencing! And rest when you feel like you are overtraining!

      Hey Daniel, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t move up, so do give it a try! Many other factors such as your own training protocols and your discipline would determine the effectiveness of the workout. Good luck bro!

    I’m about to start this routine after a period of physiotherapy/rehabilitation. The beginner workout had no effect, probably because I’ve been training for years. Any advice?
