    Ecto-Meso. I relate to that... I recently (last year) gained weight from medication I was on (40 pounds!) but running takes it off toute suite. Plus my fingers are long like spiders and my face is too long. Haha...

    I don't see the merit in this test. It calls out way more mesomorphs than there actually are. I got Mesomorph but I'm actually more of an Endo that works out.

    Your score is 2.58.
    Your body is between an Ectomorph and a Mesomorph.

    I am definitely an Ectomorph though. I'm very thin, but not shapeless or bony. I dislike the way this site implies all ectos need to gain weight.

    I don't really buy into that typology anyway. There should be at least 16 types

    The main purpose of this test is to attempt to determine your somatotype. Which attempts in this context, to give you some insight to the best way to gain lean muscle mass, and keep off excess fat.

    There are also supposed to be associated psychological traits, and stereotypes for each somatotype.

    Good point.

    ... I'd rather not disclose how my result was that (mesomorph), but it's true that there are 'more mesomorphs than there actually are'. That build is quite rare, by a long shot.

    Spot on!

    Your score is 2.33.

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

    Ectomorph: An ectomorph should concentrate on gaining weight in the form of good lean muscle tissue (some women that are too thin may also want to put on a little fat to look more feminine). Weight training should be done but not too often or for too long each session. Weight should be fairly heavy and workout pace slower (longer rest periods between sets). Diet should be high in calories (good quality food not junk) and you should eat more then you're used to and often. Aerobic and other activities (sports, dancing, etc.) should be kept to a minimum, at least until you are happy with your weight and looks.

    Mesomorph: Mesomorphs 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.

    My score was a 1.42 : In between and endomorph and a mesomorph.
    If Men's Health magazine was true, you would never need to buy more than one issue.

    I'm geeky and skinny, even when I train. So there.
