The Three Body Types - Ectomorph, Mesomorph and Endomorph
Where do you fit in?
Firstly everyone has a different body type and this hub will help identify where you fit in.
There are three different body types and it is possible to be a mixture of all three.
The 3 Types
Characteristics of the Endomorph
- Rounded physique
- Easy to gain muscle
- Hard to lose weight
- Soft body
- Underdeveloped muscles
Endomorphs are typically large with round and soft bodies, limbs are short in length, and the hands and feet are fairly small associated with a high waist.
Characteristics of the Mesomorph
- Gains fat and muscle easily
- Defined body
- Tall posture
- Average physique
- Balanced body composition
Mesomorphs have a well built bone structure along with defined muscles. Mesomorph' shave relatively broad soldiers with a narrow torso.
Characteristics of the Ectomorph
- Difficulty gaining muscle
- Flat chested
- Small shouldered
Ectomorphs are generally tall and thin with a fragile bone structure. The Ectomorph's muscles are generally slight, including small joints.
Additionally, the Ectomorph endures a quick metabolism to burn fat at an increased pace versus the other body types.
Touching back on what I explained earlier it is common to share the characteristics of two or even three body types.
I hope this information has helped you identify your body type.
