UNDERSTANDING YOUR BODY TYPE

 

Your Physical Appearance

When you start out on any program to improve your appearance in any way, it is a good idea to understand what is realistic to expect and what is not. We are all unique combinations of body type, skin type and hair type. Trying to change your genetic type is near impossible. You can however, optimise the appearance of your body type by:

  1. Understanding where fat is typically deposited on your frame.
  2. Improve the tone and texture of your skin
  3. Making your hair glow with health.

So let’s explore some of the things that make us unique, and use this knowledge to better craft your physical appearance goals. Those core attributes that determine your physical appearance potential are:

 

Your Body Type

There are three body types, all genetically programmed. Knowing your body shape helps you to be realistic in what to expect from your diet and exercise programs:

  1. Ectomorphs – tend to be thin and wispy and generally don’t have to worry about weight or body fat. They will however, find it more difficult to build lean muscle mass to help support movement and joints. More about keeping a good fat cover. More prone to back injuries due to often longer spine not supported by muscle structure. If flexible, joints can be put under pressure from too much flexibility.
  2. Mesomorphs – regarded as the performance physique; athletic and strong. Mesomorphs find it easy to develop toned muscle, but do tend to gain weight easily. They can also lose weight faster to reveal good muscle below.
  3. Endomorphs – are the true power athletic builds, being stout and shapely. Tendency here is to over perform, resulting in damage to joints and muscle, including heart muscle. Often large embedded muscle structure, need to strip away fat to see it.

No body type is inherently better than any other. Certainly, cultural and social forces determine which shape is perceived as ideal, but nothing you can do can change your body type.

 

Caring For Your Body Type

Body type is important in terms of designing the best fitness program. It is unrealistic to expect to change your total body shape, based upon a genetically different body type.
