Is there some concrete definitions of each type of bone structure a person could possibly have? I realise there are small frames, medium frames, large frames etc....but I see more variables than mere frame size. I for one have small wrists but a big ribcage and wide hips. Others have large arm bones but tiny upper body structures...and I've heard people being described as 'built wierdly' which I took to mean having some rare type of bone structure. Can anyone shed light on this? Or better yet, point me to a glossary of different skeleton types?
What would the indicators of frame size be? Since the wrist measurement isn't enough by itself.

Oh nah, I'm not talking about somatypes...i'm talking about different types of skeletons. You can be endo and have a small frame, be endo and have a big frame...etc. It's not like each somatype has its own unique bone structure. I'm after clarification of the different types of skeletons. Person A might have a large upper body, but a tiny waist, person B might have the same upper body but wide hips, that sorta thing.This might be a difficult request, but could someone find me pics of what small frames, medium frames, large frames would look like? Because I have no idea what I am and its really bugging the crap out of me. Reps for help.

You can get a general idea by looking at your shoulder width, rib cage, hip width."It seems like your goal is not to help."

Well generally, I have whats known as a barrel chest(is that a good or bad thing?), wide shoulders, not sure about hips(smaller than shoulders though, BF is still in the high teens). Natural V taper, not a monstrous one though since my hips suck, square shaped head, add muscle really easily, if i stop working out and binge on bad food ill get fat pretty fast. Would that be a medium/large frame with some meso qualities? If I was about 10lbs lighter I'd look like a comic book superhero, probably without the tiny waist
