  1. 1. Somatotypes
  2. 2. The Ectomorph This person is naturally thin with skinny limbs and prefers or is potentially good at endurance exercise. The ectomorph is usually thyroid dominant which equates to a fast metabolic rate. This person is better at tolerating a high carb diet and is usually the one looking to "put on weight" or more appropriately gain muscle, increase size and strength. This person wants to maintain a decent body weight to compliment high volume exercise. 25/55/20
  3. 3. The Mesomorph This person is naturally muscular and athletic. He/she likes to do resistance training and would typically have a lean appearance. Usually this person has good testosterone and growth hormone levels. This type does moderately well with carbohydrates. Typically the Mesomorph wants to continue to build muscle and maintain a low body fat percentage to enhance athletic performance. 30/40/30
  4. 4. The Endomorph The Endomorph is a naturally broad and thick person and prefers strength exercise as part of his/her routine. The metabolic rate of the Endomorph is slow and very insulin dominant and does not tolerate carbohydrates (starches) very well. The typical goal of this person is to lose body fat especially in the abdominal and lower back region. 35/25/40
