At whatever stage you’re at in life, it has probably dawned on you from time to time that people come in all different shapes and sizes. Whether you realized it for the first time as a wide-eyed child, or as a self-conscious teenager, or even as a reflective adult, there can be no getting away from the fact that we are all different.
Whilst we are all unique though, there are certain features or characteristics of certain body types that distinguish them from other types. If a person has a much higher percentage of muscle when compared with body fat, for instance, they may well have what is commonly referred to as a mesomorph body type.
People who can be as classed as having a mesomorphic body type may not have any trouble at all in gaining or losing weight.
Here are 8 interesting facts about the mesomorph body type.
1. Square-shaped head
Yes, you read that right, people with a mesomorph body type may well end up presenting with a rather square-shaped head. Think of it however you like, the easiest way to describe that head is like a square.
Now, we’re not talking about Spongebob Squarepants levels of the square here, as that’s purely a work of fiction and anyone with a head like that should head straight to the emergency room. The type of square-shaped head we’re talking about here is one that seems to lack the smooth oval shape that most people have.
The gentle lines that go from the top of the skull down to the base of the chin are replaced with thick-set features and wide bones. Maybe describing someone as looking like they stepped out of a pixelated retro video game would be received as offensive, or maybe they’d take it as a compliment. Try it out, but be ready to leave quickly!
