    I'm a mesomorph in terms of my body proportions, but I'm an endomorph when it comes to storing fat like a camel stores water.

    Gym story: My girlfriend, my brother, and I went to a more "popular" gym...this girl had the 8lb DB's the entire time we were at the gym (1 hr) and carried them from one part of the gym to another. My girlfriend needed them, so she asked the girl if she could use them and the girl said "I'm using them." She wasn't even using them half of the time, but still refused to give them up. Her hot shot BF continued to do his 1/8 squats (not even joking) and other bullshit exercises while this occurred.

    Moral of the story: I'm sticking with my regular gym.

    That's pretty much it. If you want to go further, ectomorphs have shorter torsos, long arms and legs, long hands/feet, and have a harder time adding mass. Endomorphs have a long torso, good strength, and a nice musculature. Endomorphs aren't necessarily fat, but they can put on weight and add strength fairly easily.

    Do you know what somatotyping was originally developed for?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somatotype

    I think it's an outdated, limited way of trying to stuff people neatly into 3 body types when they really don't fit like that.
