Ectomorphs

Ectomorphs are often noticed, and envied, for their slim and slender frames and long limbs. It’s often thought that this body type has no struggles with their weight or to build muscle. Weight gain can be a concern for ectomorphs, due to their high and fast metabolism, which can also make it hard to build muscle.

Endomorphs

Endomorphs are often recognized as being round and soft, or denser, than the other two body types. Their frame can be thick, and their muscles more bulky. Endomorphs can have a slower metabolism and gain fat quickly, although they can also possess great strength in their lower body.

Mesomorphs

Mesomorphs appear to be the most athletic and physically gifted. Often considered the strongest body type, and the most capable, yet this is not scientifically proven. This body type can build muscle easily. Females often have an hourglass figure, and males have shoulders wider than their hips. Mesomorphs can respond quickly to the right kind of exercises, and can also quickly gain or lose weight.
