So, have you worked out which body type you are more towards?
Another thing to think about is what sport or type of events you are best at? Is it short, high intensity or endurance?
The reason I am talking about body type is as I said in the last e-mail, it will have a significant effect on how you respond to exercise and also how you store fat.
If you are more towards the Endomorph body type, your ability to build muscle will be greatly increased as you will have a greater percentage of fast twitch fibres which are bigger in size and respond to heavy resistance training.
If you are more of an Ectomorph your ability to build muscle is going to be very difficult due to greater percentage of slow twitch fibres that will not increase in size.
Previously I also mentioned we have intermediate muscle fibres which it is thought can switch between fast or slow twitch depending on the type of training you predominantly do.
It all in your genes.
