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'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.
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.
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
