    Im having trouble figuring my basic body type out. Ive always been lean and muscular with no bodyfat percentage tests ever going over 10%. Metabolisms always been quick. The only issue I have with my body is my forearms to my fingers due to having issues gaining mass in that specific area.

    Just looking for some general opinions from my photos. Some pics have some good close up angles post workout that are prolly deceptive

    yep, you're an ecto buddy, welcome to the club!

    Embrace it, cuz LOTS of guys would rather have our problem of not being able to GAIN weight, and they'll bitch slap us publicly if we complain of our "problem"... and don't even THINK of saying it out loud to a woman, they'll scratch your eyes out! LOL

    But as you age you will find it easier to put on weight. The trick is to EAT EAT EAT and if your goal is to put on weight, slow down on the cardio.... not "healthy" but you have to decide what your goal is, to be healthy or to be pretty...

    And if you want to chat off line about my experiences, I'd be happy to chat in messages here or on Skype.

    I think you're quite bulky for an ecto. How long have you been working out? I've been working out for almost 4 years, gained 44lbs, but your BMI is still higher than mine. What was your starting weight? Remember you're making this question in a forum where most guys are American. Whenever you bring America and size into the equation, expect distortions.

    The scale is sliding, everyone falls somewhere along it. Who knows, you're most likely somewhere between ecto-meso, a good place to be. I was probably more close if not a true ecto body type although I don't look that way now. Pump out the delts and lats and you get a great V shape going without so much worry about gaining a fat gut/waist.

    i guess it will be a good idea if you go to a physician to select proper body type diet.

    I'm in the same boat. I don't think I fall cleanly into any one category. When I was overweight, I thought of myself as an endomorph.

    i think our gen's define our body type

    and our minds , diet and likes shapes them as much as possible into the body type we most like or want, i dont think is set on stone, what we should be, after certain point.

    hah wow guys thanks for the responses, good humor frm a lot of em icon_biggrin.gif .

    Well Im 21 now, started working out when I was 16, off and on a lot. Started at 150 lbs and Ive only moved up to 165-170. Tried out the too-much cardio approach, cut out cardio completely, hypertrophy, power lifting, splits, whole body. Now ive just kinda stepped back to try one at a time and see what works best for me. This time itll be more strategic in working with weight percentages and proper documentation. Too bad cardio is an issue cause I really love swimming. Im a vegetarian too, which is where some of my composition comes from, however, my family on both sides are more on the lean side.
