Gym Reb3l:The 3 Different Body Types and Weight Loss
The 3 Different Body Types and Weight Loss
The 3 Body Types are Mesomorph, Endomorph, Ectomorph. Don’t worry I know that these words are probably unfamiliar to you and look almost alien. As a result of the bizarre language I will give you the details of what these mean in plain English.
Endomorph’s play the game of Weight Loss on extreme difficulty. These are people with wider waists, large bone structures, and are predisposed to storing fat instead of building muscle. If you struggle to lose weight, or you put on fat easily, you MIGHT be an endomorph.
Mesomorphs are the “lucky ones.” They have medium bones, solid torso, low fat levels, wide shoulders with a narrow waist. Mesomorphs are predisposed to build muscle but not store fat. You might know somebody that can just look at a weight and seem to get bigger and stronger: that person is a mesomorph.
Ectomorph’s are characterised as having long, slim, and thin muscles/limbs and low fat storage. Ectomorph’s are not predisposed to store fat nor build muscle. These are the “hard-gainers” that can’t gain weight even when they “eat so much.”
The 3 Different Body Types and Weight Loss – What to do…
You are playing life on a higher difficulty level. For starters, I want you to remove the stigma from your mind that you are a lost cause. For starters, your metabolism isn’t slow, I promise. The truth is that you most likely eat more than you realise, and you don’t do enough strength training to combat it. You might also eat unhealthy foods (and/or consume a lot of sugar) that lead to physiological responses in your blood that promote fat storage!
You’ll want to strength train, and depending on how old you are, you’ll have to become more disciplined with your diet. You can get away with it when you’re younger, but building healthy habits at a younger age and keeping your nutrition on track means you’ll keep a good physique as you get older!
If you are trying to get bigger, you should minimise cardio, maximise strength training, and whenever in doubt eat more calories!
