Hi guys, Am 6’5 and needing to grow some big lats and a thick chest. Body shape of an ectomorph, in a caloric surplus currently, what’s the best workouts/splits to do for these results? Many thanks
First of all (and even though it doesn’t matter) I don’t believe this idea of best workout split. I think anyone, no matter what body type, female or male can achieve great results with any split there is available. Training splits are nothing but a piece of paper with some kind of structured plan but, how you execute that plan, is, what’s going to make the difference.
However when it comes to individuals who are relatively thin and lean (like myself) I think the main focus should be on the basic lifts and getting strong AF on those. Not saying completely disregard all the fancy accessory lifts but what I am saying is those big movements are the ones that are going to get the most bang for your buck. Now, although I said I am not a firm believer of this best split idea I think for your needs specifically upper/lower or push/pull/legs would be very good options.
