  • I'm an endo / meso bodytype. Frankly, I will NEVER be thin lol.

    I do like my body. I like being large-build. I have lots of power in my hips and because I'm naturally pear-shaped. Useful for lifting things, and doing things like throwing a football, when you're supposed to pivot your hips into your throw to get more throwing power. :)

    I see nothing glaringly wrong with my bodytype. Sure, I have to watch my diet more because I gain weight relatively easily. I think of it as less work to maintain overall muscle mass. All I have to do is stay in decent cardio shape and watch what I eat.

    Being a hardgainer, as I've seen, isn't all that it's cracked up to be. They have to eat SOOOOOO MUCH to gain and maintain muscle mass. Me...that's a non-factor for me. :)

  • Im Very proud of my body. One of the three things I'm most proud of about myself, because, incredibly, and thank fully, I was blessed with a reasonably mesomorph shaped body.

    Im not like built like an amateur body builder, but naturally (because I don't exercise out or do any physical activity at all) I have tone within my abdominal - distinctive, though I'm not skinny, not a big built guy but low on fat and defined. Minimal pectoral definition. Distinctive biceps and shoulder broadness and definition. And that V zone as well as that lateral look - even though not so distinctive. As well as reasonable back definition and neck broadness - but you can see collar bone, which is from my shape and lack of fat I assume.

    But I'm very proud to have my physic :) ... Even though I'd love to be a lot bigger, and taller.

    But embrace your physic :) ... Embrace the things your proud of. I know I am, no matter what hate I get hear for this so called 'big headed' answer lol.

    • I always used to get comments from the guys in my year, about me in the changing rooms - and hence when within the changing rooms for pe, or when having to remove our shirts for pe, so...

      Im not just talking out of my ass lol.

  • I'm a mesomorph in every sense of the word; I can shed weight very easily and can pull build more muscle mass too should I work sufficiently hard enough-I am naturally athletic and built like a wrestler although I am trying not to build up too much lest I lose the lean muscle I need to play football (soccer) with a modicum of speed and finesse.

  • I'd say true mesomorph. I gain weight (muscle or chub) extremely quick to a certain point, and then I level out. If I sit on my ass and do nothing all day I will get a gut, but it only takes me 2-3 weeks of working out to get my chest and arms built up.

    • Also, same thing with my legs as well. If I don't go for runs or do a lot of walking then my legs turn into skinny little chicken legs (and I look weird because I get bigger on top from not working out). If I do go for regular runs/jogs then my calves get muscular and bigger.

  • Don't identify with any of them. I have a tall, thin frame, don't put on muscle easily, but can certainly gain fat easily enough.

    • Thanks for the article. Stress is definitely the main culprit. It seems like I have so much time yet every day is hectic, like my life is on the brink of collapse. I found some of the solutions to be very helpful.

  • I would say a mesomorph body type for me. I can gain muscle quite easily and enjoy lots of different sports.

  • I'm a mesomorph, but apparently its very rare near enough none existant for anyone to be purely one of these body types. Everyone is to some degree a mix between at least two of them

    • Im probably 90% or more mesomorph since It takes next to nothing for me to gain muscle and when I don't work out at all for long periods of time I still maintain a natural level of muscular appearence physically.

  • I'm three parts ectomorph and one part mesomorph. I'm very lean and I train to build lean muscle. I have a very low body fat percentage (11%is a high estimate), and no matter how many refrigerators I consume, I can't break 159 lbs.

    I'm build like the mesomorph in those diagrams. I've seen some freakin' huge mesomorphs, and they'd make that guy look like a spider-monkey.

  • I'm a true ectomorph. I was really competitive in high school sports but at 5'8'' never weighed over 125 lbs. During college I got so busy that I barely had time to eat, let alone workout. I realized that my sense of style combined with a super slim frame wasn't helping portray my manliness and wasn't attractive to many women, a lot even guessed I was gay without knowing me, even a girl I dated admitted she thought I was gay before we talked based on my cleanliness and petiteness, no lie, pretty sad. Before she had even told me this though I had realized that at 118 lbs and probably 1% body fat I was a shell of myself. I wanted size so I made a commitment to eating as much as possible and lifting heavy. 6 months later I now weigh 130, still 1% bodyfat, I look super ripped after a workout and stay real cut compared to pretty much everybody during the day. I feel so much better now, and can't even fit into a men's small shirt anymore. I get looks from all kinds of people and I get treated like a man. I look forward to adding another 10 pounds and continuing a healthy lifestyle.

  • Mesomorph, I have always been well built but never defined until I took to the gym, I was more of a rugby player type than a defined mesomorph.

  • Definitely a mesomorph. I'm naturally built, but if I don't work out over a long period of time, I do develop some chub, but the muscle never goes away.

  • im about halfway between ecto and meso. the reason I don't say ecto is because I sometimes see guys that are wayyyyyyyy slim and I know I'm not in the same category, but I still have the same "unable to gain weight" qualities

  • My body-type is stupid, that's all I can say to describe it.

    I can gain fat easily but don't have very good potential for muscle mass. It's stupid and unappealing.

    • I'm sure you're just being hard on yourself

    • Sounds familiar to me. Realisitcally compared to some, I don't gain fat super fast, but I gain fat easily enough, and muscle barely.

      I think I'm an ectomorph with average instead of fast metabolism.

    • Annoyed me enough I went searching for info on this combination. Most interesting thing I found was link on the topic of 'skinny-fat hardgainers' i.e. guys who put on fat but not muscle. It points to stress as the main culprit, which frankly ... I might buy. Sorting out stress might turn me into pure ecto, at which point I could eat my way to muscle gains.

  • A. wish it was closer to B. can't change it though.
