Working out without seeing any results? It could be you're not doing the right kind of exercise for your body. By identifying and understanding your body type, you can devise an effective exercise program that works for you.

Endomorphs, Ectomorphs and Mesomorphs

Exercise science has identified three main categories of body type. Each looks and works differently.

Endomorphs: Characterized by large bones, round faces and bodies, ectomorphs tend to gain weight easily because of their slow metabolisms. Fat is most often stored around the middle of the body.

Ectomorph: The opposite of endomorphs, ectomorphs have long, narrow flexible bodies. An ultra fast metabolism means the ectomorph can eat what they want and not gain weight. Although this may sound ideal, ectomorphs often lack a defined shape because of low muscle weight with shoulders, waist and hips generally the same size.
