  • Ectomorph: lightweight, low-metabolism, ideal for hunting and gathering, built for endurance (most marathon runners)
  • Mesomorph: athletic, high metabolism, ideal for extreme, but short burst of energy expenditure, built for power and speed (most football players, sprinters, etc.)
  • Endomorph: strong body type, ideal for long, hard routine work, built for stamina (many wrestlers, e.g John Cena)
