|Train Smarter, Not Necessarily Harder
Those with ectomorphic body types are more subject to musculoskeletal injury than those who are mesomorphic or endomorphic. Physical forces have a greater impact on the long, lean frame of an ectomorph, increasing the risk of strain/sprain injuries.
Ectomorphs experience ankle sprains, shin splints, metatarsal stress fractures, wrist strains, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff injuries to a much greater extent than those with other body types. A further concern is the lack of appropriate rehabilitation. For ectomorphs, it's easy for injuries to recur and become chronic if sufficient time for recovery and retraining is not provided.
For ectomorphs especially, gradual and consistent exercise/sports training is critically important. Ectomorphs need to build-up to high levels of performance. Dynamic warm-ups are key to a successful training session. Of all the body types, an ectomorph can never "rush" his workout. In terms of exercise, for an ectomorph "rushing" means "injury".
An old cliche for getting to know someone in a new social situation entails asking, "What's your sign?" The notion, of course, is that a simple identifier such as astrological sign would provide grounding for a potential relationship - romance, friendship, or even a new bowling partner. As there are only twelve signs of the zodiac, the odds were good that you'd be able to make something out of your respective astrological signs and go from there. Many marriages, businesses, and contract bridge teams can trace their origins to what were considered favorable astrological pairings.
