The best endomorph training plan

Endomorphs are typically shorter, squatter and bigger-boned than taller and leaner ectomorphs, and store fat far too easily. Sound like you? Here’s how you can train smarter with the best endomorph training plan to strip away belly fat and become the proud owner of a leaner, fitter and more defined physique.

I’m an Endomorph: what do I do?

Let’s start at the beginning. The chances are you’ve always carried a bit of extra weight, especially around the legs and belly. But you always felt fit and could hold your own in any sporting event or athletic endeavour.

The problem? Now you’re older your weight has crept up very quickly. And suddenly you’re heavier than you’ve ever been.

Maybe you didn’t even really recognise your reflection when you properly looked at it. Don’t worry – you’re not alone. And there’s plenty of training tools in your locker than you can use to make a big difference to how you look and feel.

How to eat and train as an endomorph

For you, the way to get back into shape is through a smart and progressive training programme. That means one that includes combination of lifting weights and high-intensity cardio – such as New Body Plan 2.0.

It’s an updated version of the original eight-week NBP Jon Lipsey followed to shed 10kg of fat in just two months. He transformed his body from out-of-shape dad-bod to Men’s Fitness cover model.

The best ectomorph training plan

NBP 2.0 is accessed through the New Body Plan app, which also includes a full range of fat-loss and muscle-building meal plans.

Nutrition is especially important because what you eat has a big impact on whether you achieve your better-body goals. That means more protein and vegetables, natural carbs and healthy fats. You should also reduce your intake of sugar, alcohol junk food and snacks. The good news is that eating for a better body has never been easier.

If you want to choose from all of the current and future NBP home and gym training plans – including the new Warrior Strength and Six-Week Summer Body programmes – and gain full access to all our fat-loss and muscle-building meal plans, you can join Club New Body Plan for less than the price of a takeaway coffee each week!
