The Somatotype Myth: Ectomorph Mesomorph Endomorph

18296 ratings | 1202896 views
Bodytypes: Ectomorph Endomorph Mesomorph Somatotype typically refers to the structure or build of a person as far as their proportions, appearance and development goes. There are diets and training protocols put out specifically for those who are classified under one of these types. In this video I go over my personal opinion on classifying individuals into specific body types, and why I think it takes credit away from people and how I feel we should not be labeling humans under these categories. **Intro created by Kenny Gonzales** KGB graphics - http://on.fb.me/1arBpfC youtube.com/cashmoney503 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ FACEBOOK: http://on.fb.me/11NXZoZ INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/mattyfusaro TWITTER: https://twitter.com/FusaroFitness ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ FusaroFitness Mailing Address: Matty Fusaro P.O.

There is such thing as body type. You have only looked like all three because you have worked hard but you are naturally an ectomorph

I'm a female ectomorph. Life is good! People think I always diet and workout a lot. I don't :D My husband and I eat the same. He is overweight (but healthy) and I'm skinny. Metabolism types are REAL.

Being a somatotype doesn't mean you CAN'T do something. But it's clear that genetically, some people lean towards the three somatotypes. I don't see how anyone with eyes can deny that. There is bone structure, height, and people who have more fast-twitch or slow twitch muscle (muscles can be trained to be more fast twitch (Type 2) or slow twitch (Type 1) but GENETICS determine what someone is initially born with) Some ethnicities even have a higher percentage or having more or less muscle mass genetically than others. This is not a myth. Mesomorphs have more fast twitch (Type 2) muscle fibers, for example. So, I agree with you about people using their somatypes as an excuse to ( or not to) workout a certain way or believe they are predetermined to be obese, for instance, since ANYONE can avoid obesity with effort and taking care of their bodies with proper nutrition. It is clear certain people DO have a genetic advantage or disadvantage when it comes to how easily they lose weight or put on muscle. I don't understand why something so obvious is being disputed. If someone tries really, really, really hard to be several inches taller, can they? No. GENETICS determine that. So, why is it not possible that genetics could determine a somatype? I think we all can agree though (those who aren't delusional anyway) that FAT and OBESE are NOT body types. If there is any bullshit about body types I have heard, it's that coming from the fat acceptance movement.

What is this guy talking about ? Endomorph body type are the 99.9% of the heavyweight lifing in Olympics and all the stongest men ate endomorph. I'm an endomorph and i can gain fat so easy and I also can gain muscles very easy . I watch my diet to bulk up. If you guys what to mess around and talk shit then learn facts first. Get the hell out of here bro saying there is no difference in bones size oh come on are you out of your mind ?

Body types exist, an endo stores much more fat on lower abdomen,lower back and tights. There are guys with a visible six pack but still have some fat on legs ,this is a genetic trait where the body puts fat first and takes it last.

I dissagree with endo, I think if anyone is close to the theoretical endo classification, it's easy for them to gain fat but also muscle. Unlike the ectomorph. Complete opposite sides of the spectrum. If it is a real thing then I would say my dad is an endo, the dude has always found it hard to lose weight even though he's hard working builder, the dude puts on muscle real easy, thick joints, shorter and solid build, when he started working out his strength and muscle gain was crazy despite the fat stomach 😂

Good vote on the Mental and Good strategy to overcome the typical stereotype about what you can do to come out stronger, basically you just need to know where you are starting from so that you know "where you can limit yourself because If you start as ecto don't expect to be Arnold S. because no-one ever topped him in physic.But what he did to gain that muscular physic is not allowable by Law in America and Mexican Stuff for physic is tainted and untrustworthy. Look at all bodubuilder's who have passed away over the years. Tainted Stuff.

Dahjer Canaan (5 months ago)
Matt, I think you've mistaken what Somatotypes actually are. They're just bone structures, sure, yes. But that's not the point of why a body type is important to know. Sure, you can gain massive muscles like Triple H, Batista, Arnold Schwarzenegger and etc. how every building those massive muscles will not look the same on every person and that's because of their different unique bone structures. Nobody is ever going to look exactly like Arnold Schwarzenegger is my basic point I'm making, they will only ever look like the best "themselves" that they can be.

There are different body types, because there are different genetic predispositions. Some people are born with more Slow Twitch muscle fibers, others are born with more Fast Twitch, while normal people are born with an even distribution of Fast/Slow Twitch muscle fiber groups. Also, some people are genetically predisposed to bigger bone structures and more fat cells than others. Thus, the reason for different body types. So yes, Ectomorphs can gain muscle, but it will be harder. Endomorphs can lose fat, but it will be harder. Mesomorphs can lose muscle and/or gain fat, but it will be easier for them to gain muscle compared to the Ectos and harder to gain fat compared to the Endos. So you cant just throw out basic human physiology.

And that's what he is. That's WHY he can regain this body type while pretending he can do anything. That's another advantage of mesos

Ridiculous. No true ectomorph who has ever existed will ever look like phil heath. This was five minutes of nonsense.
Biron B (6 months ago)
What you're missing my man is that each one of those types of people do not have to work hard to maintain those body structures and that's where they come in. There are people that are naturally muscular, naturally thin, and naturally not those because I don't wanna say fat. Hardly anybody is naturally fat. That shit is just about choices. No matter how much work you put in, you body structure doesn't change...

James Leach (6 months ago)
I'm somewhere in the middle. I have wide shoulders and tend to carry more fat around my mid section. But have no trouble gaining muscle and strength. It's harder though for me to lose fat, I'm also build like an upside-down Dorito. Meaning despite training I still have bigmans upper body and a slendermans lower body. I look out of proportion. My legs are hella strong, just can't seem to get any real mass on them.

Ectomorph is wayyyy skinnier than first pic. I've immediately noticed something wrong with that pic. That's not ecto at all. The author of this video is probably endomorph, because mesomorph have a huge chest and shoulders.

Everlasting Luv (7 months ago)
You have the somatotype theory totally wrong. It’s not about bone structure. Some people need to work out harder to lose weight and some people can drop it like it’s nothing. It’s important to know so you can easily determine how much to eat and how much cardio should be done. You’re obviously a mesomorph. You can gain muscle easily but you can also lose it easily. Some people like ectomorphs can’t GAIN weight no matter how hard they try too. Endomorphs are the exact opposite. They have a painfully slow metabolism and need to watch what they eat as well as do more cardio than the other somatotypes. The reason you can’t understand this is because you don’t know the other experiences. As a mesomorph it’s really easy to say “just put your mind to it.” For others it’s not as easy. Again, it’s not about bone structure. It’s more about where you store fat in your body and your metabolism

TheHumanlpod (8 months ago)
youre wrong about endomorphs not putting on muscle easily, they put it on very easily and are naturally very strong but tend to have a high bodyfat % given the same diet as the other 2 types. powerlifters have an innate advantage of being an endomorph whilst pro bodybuilding is well suited to the mesomorph
