Fat Mesomorph. My body is shaped like that, but it just has some extra fat on it.

Your score is 1.83.

Your body is closest to a Mesomorph. You have a naturally fit body but to maintain it or improve it you should exercise and diet correctly for your type. Strength training can be done more often and for longer sessions then would be good for an Ectomorph, but you must still be carefull not to overdo it. You should train with moderate to heavy weighs and at a moderate pace, not resting too long between sets. You will find you gain muscle quite easy (some women and even men might not want to get too bulky, but this won't happen suddenly. When you are happy with your muscle size simply train to maintain it). Stick to a good healthy diet to keep you lean and muscular, and watch for any slow creeping fat gains. Engage in and enjoy aerobic activities, sports, etc. but do not overdo.

Somatypes eh?
What a load of crap.
I have met plenty of fat people who are miserable and mean-spirited.

Due to the plumpness of ARFCOM, I'd say you should have only left a choice for endomorph.

Of course it's crap, body types do not have matching personality types. They can influence it though (like fat kid getting picked on and becoming a serial killer, or skinny kid getting picked on and becoming a serial killer, etc).

The misinformation on that site is going to get people killed.

My question was only about body types, not personality types. I linked to the first match on google images in case people didn't know what the body types were.

Meso to the mucho.

Meso for both body and personality type.

I was a mesomorph up until about 35, now I'm leaning towards the endomorphic side.

Mesomorph.

Your score is 2.33.

Your body is between an Ectomorph and a Mesomorph. Choose a middle approach between the follow recommendations.

I would have gone that route too had I not found out about SquatDog's Full Body Power Shot Ab Machine.

Im a dyed-in wool ectomorph. Been the skinny guy my whole life.

Classic ectomorph except for the fragile part. Took me 46 years to destroy my body . Now I am suffering from my undersized joints, long neck, and too many hard impacts with the ground and too many recoil impulses.

Is it possible to be an overweight mesomorph? I think that is what I am. I have broad shoulders and wear a size 50 jacket even when I'm down to fighting weight. My shoulders are much wider than my butt or hips or thighs, but I have a helluva tummy.

Guess some of us just don't fit the mold right.
