    Brad Pitt is an ectomorph?

    http://www.bodybuildingpro.com/bodytypeinformation.html

    Body Types - Which One are You? The Ectomorph, the Mesomorph, the Endomorph, or a Combination?

    We have known for quite some time now in bodybuilding that different body types respond differently to both training and nutrition. As a result, it is incredibly important to be aware of what your body type is so that you can design a training and workout program accordingly. In this article, the history of body types and some interesting pieces of information to help you identify them will be mentioned.

    William Sheldon

    William Sheldon (1898-1977) was an American psychologist who spent his life observing all the variety of human bodies. He taught at several universities and spent his career doing valuable research. As a child he was an avid observer of animals and birds, and as he grew up, this hobby turned into a strong ability to observe the human body.

    The basics of body types are listed below:

    The ECTOMORPH
    Definitive "Hard Gainer"
    Delicate Built Body
    Flat Chest
    Fragile
    Lean
    Lightly Muscled
    Small Shouldered
    Takes Longer to Gain Muscle
    Thin


    The extreme ectomorph physique is a fragile and delicate one. The bones are light, joints are small and muscles are slight. The limbs are relatively long in proportion and the shoulders droop. The ectomorph is a linear physique. Straight up and straight down, and may appear longer than he or she really is, due to the length of limbs coupled with lack of muscle mass developed on those limbs. The ectomorph is not naturally powerful and will have to work hard for every ounce of muscle and every bit of strength he or she can gain.

    Other Ectomorph Traits

    The extreme ectomorph may have long fingers, toes and neck are long. A pencil neck you could say. The features of the face are sharp, and the shape of the face is triangular. The lower jaw is somewhat receding. The skin tends to burn easily. Extreme ectomorphs may suffer from extremes of temperature. Due to the great body area in relation to muscle mass, the ectomorph may suffer from great heat, and due to low body fat, the ectomorph may suffer from great cold. The hair is fine and grows quickly and is sometimes difficult to keep in place.

    Famous Ectomorphs

    Lisa Kudrow, Kate Moss, Brad Pitt, Seth Green, Edward Norton.

    The MESOMORPH
    Athletic
    Hard Body
    Hourglass Shaped (Female)
    Rectangular Shaped (Male)
    Mature Muscle Mass
    Muscular Body
    Excellent Posture
    Gains Muscle Easily
    Gains Fat More Easily Than Ectomorphs
    Thick Skin


    The Mesomorph Body

    The mesomorph has well-defined muscles and large bones. The torso tapers to a relatively narrow and low waist. The bones and muscles of the head are prominent. Features of the face are clearly defined, such as cheek bones and a square, heavy jaw. The face is long and broad, and is cubicle in shape. Arms and legs are developed and even the digits of the hand are muscled.

    Other Traits of the Mesomorph

    The skin of the mesomorph is thick and the mesomorph tans well. The hair is heavy in texture.

    Famous Mesomorphs

    Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, the majority of Mr. Universe winners.

    Endomorph


    Soft Body
    Underdeveloped Muscles
    Round Physique
    Weight Loss is Difficult
    Gains Muscle Easily Like the Mesomorph.


    The ENDOMORPH

    The body of the extreme endomorph is round and soft. The physique presents the illusion that much of the mass has been concentrated in the abdominal area. This may or may not be true. The arms and legs of the extreme endomorph are short in length and taper. This may give the appearance of stalkiness. The hands and feet of the endomorph are comparatively small, and the upper arms and thighs are often more developed than the lower parts of the arms or legs. The body has a high waist.

    Other Traits of the Endomoprh

    The skin is soft and smooth, and the hair is fine. The head of the endomorph is spherical. The head is large and the face broad.

    Famous Endomorphs

    John Goodman, Roseanne, Jack Black.

    Combinations of Body Types

    Very often, people cannot be easily classed as one of the three main body types. Although there are some people who are purely ectomorphs, endomorphs, or mesomorphs with little or no characteristics of the other body types, very frequently, people fall into mixed categories, such as ecto mesomorphs, or endo mesomorphs, where largely, they are like the mesomoph, but with traits of the ectomorph (such as small joints or a trim waist), or traits of the endomorph (such as a tendency to gain fat easily).

    I've heard that before.

    From my very limited experience, I would say that ectos are not necessarily more intelligent but generally quite introspective and thoughtful (there's a difference).

    Ectomorphs get a bad rep and told its too hard for you, bull**** you just need to eat right. Chris Evans from Captain America is an ectomorph, and his body was rocking for the film because he ate in accordance for his body type.

    if you are an ectomorph you are gonna need to eat calories because that's the only thing that's making you are "hard gainer". You burn your calories too quick. again it all needs to be from proper food, best eaten raw

    If you are an endomorph you will need lower calories, as your problem is that you don't burn calories fast enough and store them as fat. While endo's can look big, many tend to be fat (like vin diesel) which isn't body-building, that's just high body mass with a bit of gym work to make you look pumped.

    If you're a mesomorph you need to balance out your food items, which is a pain in the butt... BUT most "body building" guides are built around a mesomorph, so it tends to be easier for them to get results because the "hard work" of making a diet is pretty much done, they just need to follow it.

    You need to stop looking at the marketing BS and cookie clutter diets and get something for your body type. This stupid nonsense of "I wish I was a mesomorph" is crap, stop following their ****ing diet and work out plan and use those for your body type.
