There are three major body types - ectomorphs, endomorphs and mesomorphs. Ectomorphs - have minimal muscle and minimal fat. An example would be a marathon runner. Endomorphs - have lots of fat. They have a pear shaped body. An example would be a sumo wrestler. Mesomorphs - have lots of muscle and have a 'V' shaped body. A prime example would be a gymnast.

Yes. All proteins build muscle.

It will come slowly as you build muscle on the rest of your body. It will come slowly as you build muscle on the rest of your body.

Protein does naturally build muscle tissue, so yes, it is very good to use protein in order to build muscle.

You can't build muscle on top of fat. The fat will burn away and you will create the muscle. Muscle basically replaces the fat.

no its not impossible to build muscle over fat, but it is impossible to change ur fat into muscle. Fat and muscle are completely different things therefore you cannot change fat into muscle. You can build muscle over fat though. Just do cardio to lose fat

It takes quite a while to build muscle from walking, but it takes only a short time to build good strong leg muscle from jogging or running.

They don't help build muscle, but they do increase your intake of protien which is what your body needs to build muscle.

After you work out, you rip muscle tissue and your body builds the muscle back. Thus, forming muscle on top of muscle.

Any diet that you go on to gain muscle should include a lot of protein. Protein will help build and repair muscles after you work out. P90x is a good workout plan to build muscle.

Ectomorphs can do any sport!! You body shape does not have as much impact on which sport you can play as much ability. Yes ectomorphs may not be come O line men or body builders but what they lack in size and power they make up with speed and endurance. So look at sports highlight you natural abilities but in saying that Wayne Gretzky is a Ectomorph and is consider the best hockey player to ever play the game. Also with repettion and hard work you can build muscle or change you body type a little. Many players of contact sports are either Ectomorphs or Endomorphs and either gain or lose weight to look more like the Mesomorph. Once they stop playing the sport they then revert to their natural body type.

yes. Protein shakes build lean muscle. You should take it right after you work out.

Ginseng doesn't build muscle but there is evidence that it helps endurance. Ginseng can also help with loosing fat in the body.

yes.. African Americans do build muscle faster.. they are bigger in many places.

Well there could be several causes to bigger legs. 1. There are three distinct body types- Endomorph, Mesomorph and Ectomorph. Endomorphs are bigger boned and gain body fat easily. They gain muscle normally. Mesomorphs are medium-large boned and gain muscle very easily, both men and women. The weight gain you are experiencing is likely muscle gain. Ectomorphs are USUALLY very thin (although there ARE overweight ectos like myself) and have trouble building muscle. You could be a endo, meso or both. 2. Your diet. Do you eat a lot of meat/chicken/fish? Those foods have a lot of protein in them that builds muscles as well. If you eat primarily vegetables and do the same exercise, you won't build muscles NEARLY as easily. With no meat protein, muscle is near impossible to build up. Your body will use the fat you already have to try to maintain the muscle it is trying to build.

No all it will do is give you the stamina in your muscles to build

User Avatar

Yes, that is how muscle building works. When you workout in the gym or at home, you damage your muscles and after 24-48 they repair themselves slightly string to prevent that same injury, over time the repairs have to get bigger. This is how you build muscle.

User Avatar

Very little. There is no resistance to exercise the muscle.

you will build muscle in a couple of months that you will notice if you weight train heavy 3 to 4 days a week.
