Convert body type?
Convert body type?
11/17/12 8:27 AM
Hello. I'm a naturally muscular female and I'm looking to lose muscle to have a more feminine shape. Mostly my arms are gigantic and always have been. I purposely do not use weights or strength training in my arms and when I do exercise with weights I use 5 or 8 pounders. Even when I never worked out my body was really muscularband I always blamed it on cheerleading when I was younger but I don't think that's the case anymore as that was over ten years ago. I recently found body types and believe I'm a mesomorph. So my question is can I convert my body into an ectomorph or am I doomed to be muscular the rest of my life?

Thank you emoticon

Adrianna Congratulations on figuring out your body type, this is where people struggle and compare there type to another and wonder why there not like the other person 2 complete different make up's.. An Ectomorph is a person that's a hard gainer on building muscle and weight, so no I never heard of a person converting to a different body type on that note though, If your a mesomorph I don't think your doomed I think your blessed!! If I was you I concentrate on high arerobics exercise like Chalene Extreme, or Insanity, also That's great your concentrating on light weights, continue to do that and find a high cardio program you love and the big bulky muscle will lean out.

Thanks Coach Bill! I was running for a while and got down to 113lbs then I decided to do insanity...big mistake. I went up to 118 and look more muscular than I ever have. I think I'm going to stick with the running again. I really want to lose this bulk buy idk if that will ever happen.
Thanks again

Adrianna, I've noticed that this is a recurring theme that you want to lose the "last few pounds" or something similar. Like I said the last time I think, based on your self-description and your photographs, that your goal of losing weight or shrinking muscles is unrealistic and unnecessary. You are very thin and, just for the record, your arms look terrific. If they're looking super-muscular it might actually be because you have a low bodyfat % that shows every individual muscle in your arms.
