The other day I came across an article discussing body types. It automatically took me back to the middle school years where I originally learned about the 3 different body types. I remember my PE teacher giving the class examples of people of different sizes and we would have to place them into 1 of the 3 categories. These 3 categories are ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph. Below are a few descriptions of each body type.
Although we can be labeled as 1 of the 3 body types, we can also be a combination of two. The most common combinations would be either ectomorph/mesomorph or mesomorph/endomorph. What the body type’s descriptions don’t really grasp is what the body is actually capable of doing. A perfect example is what we do at Intrepid. On a daily basis we have many athletes, of all shapes and sizes, producing results. I see people getting stronger and faster every day. It does bother me that mesomorph appears to be the most “desirable” body type because being athletic, strong, and well defined sound so appealing. In reality all body types have the same opportunity to be athletic and strong. It all depends on the effort that you put in.
