An ectomorph 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.

Here's the reason why none of this makes sense. Since when does bone structure influence metabolic rates? Ask yourselves that. Also, are all skinny people endomorphs and all fat people ectomorphs? This entire thing about these body types seems like bs. Maybe a bit is true like how some people are naturally stockier and broader shouldered while others are tall and lanky. However I don't believe that people's metabolic rates are in any way influenced by bone structure.

Bone structure doesnt influence metabolism. They just happen to correlate a lot of the time. And no one is saying all of one type is skinny or fat. And also not wven the medical feild says these are absolute or the only three possible body typea. Theyre just three vague categories. Its ok.
