Transcript

  • 1. Lloyd Dean SOMATOTYPES
  • 2. One of the natural assets of some people is their body build or physique. This can be measured and the result is known as your SOMATOTYPE. There are 3 somatotypes.
    • Endomorph
    • Mesomorph
    • Ectomorph
    Each of us is likely to be predominant in one or another of these.

  • 7.  
  • 8. Various body measurements are needed in order to work out your somatotype and together with your age and gender, these scores are read from a chart. The measurements taken are for:
    • Height
    • Weight
    • Bone size
    • Muscle
    • Fat
  • 9. A score out of 7 will then be given in the following categories:
    • Fatness- ENDOMORPHY
    • Muscularity- MESOMORPHY
    • Linearity (thinness )- ECTOMORPHY
    So a persons somatotype might be 2:6:2. this would mean: 2/7 for fat, 6/7 for muscle and 2/7 for thinness.

  • 13. What Is D.O.M.S?
    • Muscle tearing after exercise
    • Usually lasts between 24-48 hours, with last 48 hours the most painful
    • Microscopic tears to the muscle
    • Can be treated with ice packs, appropriate cool down
    • Light exercise can assist in removing pain and encourage oxygen delivery to damaged muscle
