Hey, Im a 102 pounder ectomorph (5'4" 16 yrs old) and I'm wondering is it possible to get from a stick to someone with a real nice body? I mean, is it possible to change from an ectomorph to a mesomorph?
Like for example, I am an ectomorph that became superbuff, am I still considered an ectomorph?
Anyways, I'm just wondering if I can change. My mom says its useless, I'm born the way I am, so I'm just wondering if its possible for an ectomorph to get a real buff, nice body.

Yes it is imo. I started out as a staunch ecto now Im more of an ecto meso. I believe its possible extreme trraining may cause the body to micro evolve or bring out genes that before were not expressed. Also with increased muscle mass over many years bones will grow more dense and even grow in diamter due to the ossification process. Ive also heard that the shoulder bones in particular respond welll to training in shape and size.Check out my path to enlightenment series!
Once the stillness comes into your life, then the mind also becomes absolutely still. When your mind becomes still, your intelligence explodes.
When your happiness is dependent upon what is happening outside of you, constantly you live as a slave to the external situation.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

your body type cannot ever change in your life, thats the way you are. If are an ecto that has gained alot of musle thru working-out your still a ecto.......you never become a meso or change body types.
Any body type will allow you to become huge, its just its different difficulties with different bodytypes. Meso is the best, its easier. Endo, you have to do more cardio, its harder. ecto, you have to eat a ton, its also harder.
BTW your mom doesnt know what shes talking about. Almost anyone can become buff, unless you have some genetic disease that prevents you from gaining muscle or you just have very rare horrible terrible genetics.

Seems to be a lot of debate about this. What I have read is an Ecto will be lean and an Meso can put on fat easier.
So am I still a Ecto? Scenario: Up to the age of 24 I was always an ecto (lean, could barely put on any muscle and could eat as much as I liked), after that to the late 30s I still ate the same but im bigger all round (now have muscle but I can put on weight easy). I think bodys can slightly change over time if genetics allow it.Why do it today when you can put it off until tomorrow?
Because tomorrow never comes!
