Welcome to the Ustreamers that are chatting with me live right now. If you want to join us live every Saturday at 12 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, you can just log on to Ustream and do it. Welcome and I want to let you know that I can answer your questions right on the spot as well, instead of waiting a few days for email. Today's episode, I think it's a really important one, it's - basically, ask you the question, is your body type working against you? You know there's something that a lot of us have to face and so what I wanted to do is break it down for everyone. You know because you always hear people say, oh, well is your body type she is big boned or she just has naturally fast metabolism. Well, I want to explain you kind of what that means and how it can affect you and how you can figure out, maybe what body type you have, and then how you can work with it. If you hear some whining in the background, it's my dog. She is Wenny. Oh, Hi! Wen. And she is not wearing shirt as last time, I know how embracing. It's a different pink t-shirt, tin top. She looks like a body builder, doesn't she? Thanks sister. Alright, so hopefully she won't be whining throughout this whole thing, she is little bored right now. Anyway, let's cut to the chase. There are about three main body types that the people have and the first one is an Ectomorph. Ectomorph is the body type, you know those people that you see that are really lengthy like an example would be Gwyneth Paltrow she is an Ectomorph or like James Franco. You know the actor who played James Dean. And these guys, these people who are Ectomorphs are typically skinnier you have smaller bones, smaller joints, and even smaller muscles. These types of people are the type that the just eat and eat whatever they want and they never gain a pound. Ectomorphs though have a hard time gaining weight, both fat and muscle. But typically, for women as you age you will, if you're not exercising properly and you still continue eating and eating how you did back in your teens and 20s and 30s. If you do gain fat, it's mostly going to be on the buttocks and on the thighs. Typically, the people that are Ectomorphs who are skinnier or a little bit, they can develop more of a pear shape body because they retain the fat on their lower body. And the reason why, you'll see a lot of athletes who are marathon runners that are the Ectomorphs, I mean it's because the smaller muscles they contain, their bodies genetically have more type of one muscles and type one muscle basically in a nutshell is a more oxygen rich muscles, they are smaller, but they have more capillaries, so its more oxygen rich; meaning they are prone to exhale in aerobic activity like marathons or bikers. So, these types or body types are typically those types of people that exhale in those arm sports. Now, if you have this type of body type, you'll have a hard time gaining muscle, but at the end of this Podcast I'll explain and break it down to you what you can do to maybe improve or extenuate your body type of that's what you want yourself. Body type number 2 is what I am, I'm a Mesomorph. Mesomorph body types are typically stockier types, more rounded muscles, broader shoulders, more straight up and down, you know how like I was saying the Ectomorphs are more they can become more of a pear shape and more lengthier. Where Mesomorphs have more fuller bone structure, fuller muscles and these types of people kind to have the best of both worlds in a
