William Sheldon introduced in 30 years, three different body types, until now with medical and scientific point of view used. It was suggested three types: ectomorph, mesomorph and endomorph. However, no one can make an accurate classification of specific people, as every man of mixed type and has only some parts of the three body types.

Endomorphic people must especially pay attention to diet, because without sufficient discipline in the diet to get a good quality of the muscles will be very difficult.
