    Body Type, Ectomorph, Mesomorph, Endomorph


    An ectomorph is a typical skinny guy. Ecto’s have a light build with small joints and lean muscle. Usually ectomorph’s have long thin limbs with stringy muscles. Shoulders tend to be thin with little width.Typical traits of an ectomorph:

    Small “delicate” frame and bone structure

    Classic “hardgainer”

    Flat chest

    Small shoulders


    Lean muscle mass

    Finds it hard to gain weight

    Fast metabolism

    Ectomorphs find it very hard to gain weight. They have a fast metabolism which burns up calories very quickly. Ecto’s need a huge amount of calories in order to gain weight. Workouts should be short and intense focusing on big muscle groups. Supplements are definitely recommended. Ectomorphs should eat before bed to prevent muscle catabolism during the night. Generally, ectomorphs can lose fat very easily which makes cutting back to lean muscle easy for them.

    A mesomorph has a large bone structure, large muscles and a naturally athletic physique. Mesomorphs are the best body type for bodybuilding. They find it quite easy to gain and lose weight. They are naturally strong which is the perfect platform for building muscle.Typical traits on a Mesomorph:


    Hard body with well defined muscles

    Rectangular shaped body


    Gains muscle easily

    Gains fat more easily than ectomorphs

    The mesomorph body type responds the best to weight training. Gains are usually seen very quickly, especially for beginners. The downside to mesomorphs is they gain fat more easily than ectomorphs. This means they must watch their calorie intake. Usually a combination of weight training and cardio works best for mesomorphs.

    The endomorph body type is solid and generally soft. Endomorphs gain fat very easily. Endo’s are usually of a shorter build with thick arms and legs. Muscles are strong, especially the upper legs. Endomorphs find they are naturally strong in leg exercises like the squat.Typical traits of an Endomorph:

    Soft and round body

    Gains muscle and fat very easily

    Is generally short and “stocky”

    Round physique

    Finds it hard to lose fat

    Slow metabolism

    When it comes to training endomorphs find it very easy to gain weight. Unfortunately, a large portion of this weight is fat not muscle. To keep fat gain to a minimum, endomorphs must always train cardio as well as weights. Usually supplements may not be needed as long as the person has a high protein intake in their diet.

    A combination of body types.

    These body types aren’t set in stone. In fact, most guys have a combination of two body types. These combinations are either ectomorph/mesomorph or mesomorph/endomorph. It is not uncommon to find a pure mesomorph that gains weight like an endomorph for example.

    So which body type are you?

    Given the information above you should easily be able to identify your body type. You may also want to optimize your diet and training to suit your body type.

    One final point I want to mention is that no matter what your body type you can build a big, ripped, muscular physique. Even the skinniest of guys can bulk up. Yes, it’s harder but if you’re willing to put in the hard work it can be done. I have about the skinniest natural build possible and at the time of writing this article I have gained about 30kg (66lbs) of lean muscle mass.

    Many thin and skinny women set out to gain any weight and gaining body fat is fine with them. However, there is a major problem with this approach in putting on weight. If the weights you gain come primarily from increased body fat, you have no control of where those extra fats will be going to on your body.

    Your extra ugly fat could end up unevenly distributed in all the wrong places like your tummy, love handles, butt, thighs and so on.
