Have you considered what genetics has to do with your weight loss or fitness goals? Oftentimes, just being aware of what kind of body type you are and how to deal with it will make all the difference in the world towards getting you set up on the right fitness plan
Many personal trainers will start with a fundamental assessment and adjust your diet, exercise, supplementation, etc. based on your bodily composition and your transformational goals.
We’ve put together an infographic of the three major somatotypes (genetic body-type framework) that we all fall into. Whether male or female, we have to work with the hand that we are dealt as it relates to our bodily composition. Some of us have an easier time building muscle or losing weight than others.
Remember: many of us fall in-between these somatotypes, so with that factored in, find your range & find the correct information on what may best benefit your body from the start. Read more about the Ectomorph, Endomorph, & Mesomorph below:
If you are in-between one of these body types, try both. See what works for you.
