The Best Exercises For A Mesomorph
Depends on goals: For sports fitness, play the game and work the muscles. Aerobic fitness has little to do with body type, and gives endurance and speed over mass. A mesomorph may be defined as big-framed and/or an easy-gainer of mass -- these are contradictory and confusing. Resistance training as for anyone else. Especially, eat plenty of protein and otherwise eat moderately. Best wishes. ...Read more

18y.By doing exercise can shoulders lengthen and ribcage expand?How to get mesomorph bone structure with help of testosterone if I have "female bones"
Man up!: You're eighteen. Your bone structure is established. Don't let fitness salespeople make you feel unhappy with what you can't change. Instead, change what you can. Develop what your genes gave you and forget the rest. Hugh Jackman has your bone structure. Add muscle and trim fat, and look what can be done. If your sexuality is working normally by now, you can do this. Best wishes. ...Read more
Subscience: This is a subscientific term for a heavy-framed person who gains muscle easily and rapidly doing resistance training; the two qualities do not necessarily go together. You'll gain mass at your own speed by training hard. Creatine and perhaps an electronic muscle stimulator will help. Hope you avoid anabolic steroids. Most men prize definition above being 'really big.' Enjoy training. ...Read more
See your doctor: This is a problem that requires a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. In that meeting, your doctor will listen to you, perform a throrough examination and possibly order labs or other tests. Based on this information, he/she will be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. ...Read more
Subscience: There are obsolete / 'pop' terms. A light-framed man who can overlap thumb and forefinger around the opposite wrist may be an 'ectomorph', especially if he's a hard-gainer in the gym. Photo Guy isn't complaining. Best wishes. ...Read more
Muscle mass: A mesomorph is someone with a muscular physique. Bmi is only ht and weight, and does not factor in muscle mass. A football player may be 5'10" and 220 lb of solid muscle, yet bmi is 31 ("obese"). On the other hand, some obese people think they have more muscle than they do. The bmi is not perfect. Focus on fitness, healthy living. % body fat can be measured, tho there are not good standards. ...Read more
You decide: "mesomorph" is a subscientific / pop term for a lean, heavily-muscled person. Your best weight is what looks and feels right for you and lets you participate in sports successfully. A man does not need any body fat. You can gain muscle as your genetics and your eagerness to do resistance training allow. The "ideal weight" charts are "entertainment only". It's your body. ...Read more

The whole somatype classification is problematic...like some of the early pseudosciences such as phrenology and the idea of 'race' being a biological fact.

At age 17, you can definitely expect to change fat into muscle by good diet and exercise, and so achieve your goal. ...Read more
What's the hormonal difference between ectomorphs and mesomorphs which causes them to have different body structures and bmr?
Unknown: The answer to this question is dependent on there being a clear definitive physiologic difference in body type. These are description of a common end state not a description of particular genes or hormones. Energy balance is extreme complex and multifactoral, including variables such a thermogenesis, absorption of nutrients and baseline activity. ...Read more
Can endomorphs mantain/build miscle on less amounts of calories compared to a mesomorph & an ectomorph?
Can a person with an endomorph body type change into a mesomorph body type through excercise or is body shape prefer timed through genetics?
Easy to change: The talk about "endomorphs" is subscience from one guy at yale in the early 1900's and has nothing to do with real science. Some guys build muscle mass more easily than others doing resistance training, but every guy can trim down doing aerobic exercise. Before-and-after photos like this one are everywhere ; you'll see people with similar results at any fitness facility. ...Read more
How can I tell if im a mesomorph body type or endomorph? I have traits for both body types i read in description. Im muscular somewhat but im also fat
Body types: The determination of a body type is not as much of a concern as how you feel about yourself. It is easy to say that if you aren't happy with your weight, you can change it. I found it personally hard to do. I couldn't do it alone, so i went to a company and chose to stick with their strict healthy diet and exercise regimen. This may not be your problem, but you called yourself fat. Try my "cure". ...Read more
Bmi or body type mesomorph? Which one is better I want to be 115. Right now i'm 142 but my rib cage is showing i'm 5"5' what can I do?
Depends: By the growth charts of the cdc your expected weight for height would be 120lb while a bmi chart would put you at 132 lb to be average weight for height. Most would agree that more muscle mass is preferred to more chub, and both charts do not make a distinction. Your pcp can give you specific recommendations based on your body. See:www.Cdc.Gov/growthcharts. ...Read more
Drinking vinegar is: Not the solution. To lose weight insure that calories burned > calories consumed. Drink at least 8 - 8 oz glasses of water per day.

Get in a good mix of aerobic ; weight lifting exercises. ...Read more
Exercise: The best exercise is the one you will do. See your doc to make sure you are healthy enough to exercise and then begin w/a brisk walk daily for 20 minutes.

One that works: The "best" cardio exercise is any exercise that you gets your heart rate up, that you do for at least 30 minutes a day 4 days a week, and that you enjoy.

Isometric exercises: Isometric implies same muscle length. A great way to do this is to use your opposite arm or leg to provide resistance. Another way is to use a stationary object such as the wall or the floor. This will allow safety. ...Read more
Exercise with frend:
Good question. Once people start exercising they usually feel the benefits and will then continue so the trick is how to get them to start. Inviting your friend to exercise with you may motivate him or her to try it. Be aware that anyone who is starting to exercise should start slow and easy. Start with something like a brisk walk in nature.
Good luck! ...Read more

Not necessarily: There are many theories regarding the best time to exercise- before the first meal of the day, 1-2 hours after a meal, once more alert, after caffeine, etc. The bottom line is to find a time to work out with your schedule, both your body schedule and life schedule. Personally, i feel individuals get a better workout if they have some nutrients (carbs, protein) on board 1-3 hours before a workout. ...Read more
