Because of its abundant muscle mass, to begin a training program, increase their muscle glycogen stores, improving muscle tone and increasing rapidly while the weight quickly. This should not scare, on the contrary, It is a good sign. We're burning fat and genrando muscle and as muscle is denser than fat, we can be thinner while we gain weight.

2. Ectomorfo. They are thin people with long limbs. They are contrary to the endomorph type. They usually have little muscle mass and usually have great difficulty increasing. Advantage, not tend to accumulate weight as fat. This constitution is ideal for those people who exercise in the resistance and relative strength (weight) It is important (escalation, distance runners, etc.)

3. Mesomorfo. Also called athletic type their musculo-skeletal shapely proper type and muscle mass. They are usually people who have good performance in sports. Fat is stored in a more homogeneous way.
