The endomorph body type is solid and generally soft. Endomorphs gain fat very easily. They are usually of a shorter build with thick arms and legs. Muscles are strong, especially the upper legs. Endomorphs find they are naturally strong in leg exercises like the squat.
Typical traits of an Endomorph:
· Soft and round body
· Gains muscle and fat very easily
· Is generally short and “stocky”
· Round physique
· Finds it hard to lose fat
· Slow metabolism
Unfortunately, a large portion of this weight is fat not muscle. To keep fat gain to a minimum, endomorphs must always do cardio as well as lite weights. A good health diet is recommended.
