What Is Your Body Type?

The type of body that we have is primarily based on genetics, but can also be modified by way of diet and exercise over time.

It is important to know your body type so that you can figure out the type of training and diet that is going to work best for you. There are three body types: Mesomorph, ectomorph and endomorph.

What do I mean?

  • Some bodies are efficient at burning energy for fuel.

  • Some bodies are less efficient and tend to store more energy as fat.

  • Some bodies are really efficient at building muscle.

  • Some bodies are inefficient at building muscle

And despite our genetics, our lifestyle choices, the foods we eat, and how we train will ultimately determine our body shape!

Keep in mind, we all have some aspects of endomorphy, mesomorphy and ectomorphy.

For example, you could be a mix of mesomorph and endomorph where you gain muscle quickly but also put on weight easily if you relax your diet.

The 3 Body types:

Ectomorph -

  • tall and slender

  • fast metabolism,

  • handles a high carb diet,

  • does not need much cardio for fat loss,
