Ectomorph, Mesomorph, and Endomorph
The Ectomorph Body Type
Ectomorphs tend to have very high metabolisms and often complain of relentless eating with little to no weight gain. They are often below the average weight for their height and have a skinny appearance. If you consume a large amount of calories and are still thin, you are probably an ectomorph.
The Endomorph Body Type
The endomorphic body type is the complete opposite of an ectomorph. This individual will usually be larger in appearance with heavier fat accumulation and little muscle definition. They find it hard to drop the weight even though they try several diets or workout programs.
The Mesomorph Body Type
The mesomorph is somewhat in between the ectomorph and the endomorph and as such, display qualities from both. He has a larger frame (bone structure) as the endomorph does, but a low body fat percentage as the ectomorph has. You could say this is the aspiring body type that everybody wants.
