Just My Type Part 3 of 3: The Mesomorph
The last and probably the most desired somatype is that of the mesomorph. A mesomorph typically has a medium to large large bone structure, large muscles and an athletic physique. Mesomorphs find it easy to gain and lose weight and they are naturally strong individuals. I attribute a lot of my weight loss to the fact that I do have some mesomorph type qualities.
The mesomorph body type responds very well to training. Gains are usually seen very quickly, especially for beginners. However, mesomorphs can also gain fat more easily than ectomorphs. They have to watch their caloric intake or they can quickly become out of shape. An excellent example of this is Janet Jackson whose weight sees more fluctuation than the stock market.
Male mesomorphs need to focus on keeping their body fat percentage down, as many mesomorphs are prone to weight gain, even though they lose it fairly easily. A balanced combo of cardio and weight lifting make the male mesomorph the physical cadillac of men.
Female mesomorphs should focus on weight loss to shrink your waistline with a regular and efficient cardio routine. From a weight-lifting perspective they should focus on defining and shaping curves of their figure. Due to ther natural propensity to already be musclar their should be to create a lot of shape.
