weak at : presses (bench, squat)

The endomorph tends to gain weight and keep it on. Their build is a little wider than an ectomorph or mesomorph, with a thick ribcage, wide hips, and shorter limbs. They may have more muscle than either of the other body types, but they often struggle to gain it without significant amounts of accompanying body fat.

body : short arm and legs, thick wide chest
strong at : presses (bench, squat)
weak at : pulls (deads, chins)

Mesomorphs are natural born athletes and tend to be lean and muscular without trying. Often, their shoulders are wider than their hips According to Sheldon, people with a mesomorph body type tend to have a medium frame. They may develop muscles easily and have more muscle than fat on their bodies. Mesomorphs are typically strong and solid, not overweight or underweight.

body : long everything
strong at : running, basketball Etc..
weak at : lifting things

maintain a low fat physique, but does not add muscle or body weight easily. A strongly marked example of an ectomorphic body type is a typical skinny guy. Ecto's have a light build with small joints and lean muscle. Usually ectomorph's have long thin limbs with stringy muscles. Shoulders tend to be thin with little width.

    im ENDOMORPH im struggling gaining muscle without accompanying body fat its true :o :o
    tips for endomorph., never do reps lower than 8 and
    take a lot of protein this will make you gain muscle base on my experience.
    A common recommendation for gaining muscle is 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, or 2.2 grams of protein per kg. hope this help you tnx =)
