LIFESTYLE | Male Somatotype




I'm planning to go back to the gym and shed some fat.

Yes, and just like any other normal person working 9hours a day- this mantra has become a fixated idea. But in all honesty, I really need to do some exercise, otherwise I'll end up in the hospital with high blood pressure. Plus I also need some diversion with all the things that are keeping me from doing fun things. Since I am about to do some work out, I found this nice infograph on human body types.

I am an ectomorph. Skinny, small frame and lean muscle mass. I try so hard to develop muscles but I realized that I won't become the body builder type. I wasn't cut for that. But maybe I can just develop what I currently have. (This part was written in 2012 when I was in fact, well- skinny).

Fast forward to 2018, and things have changed a bit. I have gained so much weight (thanks to endless late night meals) and I have swollen into unthinkable proportions. 

These days, when people see me they easily get astounded and gives me the familiar comments- "you've become fatter." And then they quickly neutralize it  with "but it suits you fine." Luckily I have no issue with my self esteem because I still fabulous about myself and about I am. Make no mistake about, this one is an unapologetic proud chubby, beefy, and whatever you may call it.


So to continue, understand that in 2012, I was still an Ectomorph. But people change; lifestyle change and several factors alter people's body type. And I feel that I have now transiitioned to Endomorph. But I firmly believe that somatotypes shouldn't be a reason for people to get in shape.

An ectomorph is a typical  skinny guy. Ecto’s have a light built with small joints and lean muscle. Usually ectomorph’s have long thin limbs with stringy muscles. Shoulders tend to be thin with little width. They  have an excellent model type six pack material if gain some mass with good exercise and eating.

Typical traits of an ectomorph:

Small “delicate” frame and bone structure.
Classic “hardgainer”.
Flat chest.
Small shoulders.
Thin.
Lean muscle mass.
Finds it hard to gain weight.
Fast metabolism.
