  • Definitely a mesomorph. I'm not super toned or cut or anything like that, I'm actually chubby, but I have a TON of muscle mass. I build muscle like it's nothing, with almost no effort. I've ALWAYS been chubby, from the time I was born, but I was also an athlete and ate relatively well compared to most kids. I played soccer for 7 years straight and volleyball for 2 years after that, and built crazy muscle in my legs. My legs are one part of me that IS toned, and while I haven't done any sports in several years, that kind of muscle doesn't just go away. When I flex, there's no fat to grab, except maybe a tiny bit in my inner thighs where I've softened slightly. Yet as athletic as I always was, I never LOST any chub. I didn't really gain any either, as far as muscle and fat ratio, my body has been mostly the same since I hit adolescence. Now I work as a caregiver for an elderly woman, and her care involves a lot of transfers. I have to lift her several times a day, and she's about 120 pounds of dead weight because she's almost entirely immobile. I don't lift weights or 'work out' my arms, but my shoulders and biceps have gotten pretty intense just from working this job. I have chub on my arms, but rock hard muscle when I flex, lol.

  • I find those types as gross oversimplifications. They almost translate into: Are you skinny, average, or fat?

    • not really, a bit more goes into it. How else would describe the different types of bodies?

  • Im a Mesomoorph, however apparently its very rare for anyone to be solely just one of them, most people tend to be a slight mix between them

  • Mesomorph

    I've always had a heavy build but I find it very easy to lose weight

    And I always see results in my muscle mass and tonage within a few weeks of working out

    It's always nice to see peoples reactions when they see the more or less dramatic difference between how I was and how I am

  • Meso. As a kid I was very thin, but now I'm definitely not thin or fat. I put on weight easily but I also find it easy to lose it. Very pleased with it.

  • I kinda don't believe in body types. I just believe some people have bigger bones and different shapes. The article descriptions sound like they have no true evidence.

    I myself might be considered an endo except for the fact that I fit the description of mesomorph.

  • I'm an ectomorph. Kinda sucks. I like the link to the "in shape endomorph" women. Nice!

    • I personally think that is the hardest in shape body type to find when it comes to women... hard to lose weight, often a lot softer and more susceptible to gaining weight fast.

    • I do think that they are beautiful though :X I wish I could pull it off, but weight and my body don't seem to want to work together :L

    • I hear you. They are some of the hottest women in the world (in-shape endomorph women) and as the article says of the in shape endomorph, "your body doesn't need clothes to look its best!" So true! The down side is, as you point out it's very rare. And also, it can go downhill very fast. Witness Jessica Simpson's spectacular decline from one of the hottest bodies out there 10 years ago to what she looks like today.

  • The guys on my moms side of the family are endomorphs. My dad's side of the family are ectomorphs, so I would probably be a bit of a mixture and it seems that way. However, I think I'm more of an ecto than the other.

  • I'm a mesomorph. I'm not quite as muscular, but I'm not meant to be super slender. Id be surprised if I could get under 130 pounds, and I'm 5'1.

  • mesomorph unfortunately

    I wish I was an ectomorph

    • not really ^^ most would say that a mesomorph is ideal when it comes to feminine qualities. Better for child baring, naturally curvier... they avoid having skinny fat on their bodies and in the long run do not suffer from bone issues as much. But hey better and more feminine are subjective and I'll leave you to your beliefs and ideals. It' just most really don't think that way

  • i am ectomorph.. I can never gain weight and can eat anything. I did however become Endomorphs after gaining 30 pounds on depo birth control shot but the great thing about this is I gained curves and an butt

    • this is true, I guess I will just have to see what happens ^^ Did the IUD hurt?

    • omg yes! I had it done 2 times and it lasts 5 years. the worse pain is when they clamp your uterus open. it feels like someone has a tight pinch inside you and it hurts so bad. once it goes into the uterus it feels like a period cramp. whole procedure lasted 2 mins. once done no pain and no periods for 5 years
