are naturally skinny resulting in their difficulty with putting on muscle mass. This is why they are better designed for long distance running.

 

Celebrity Body Type: Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss and Calista Flockhart.

 

Workout type: Don’t do the same cardio as endomorphs, but focus on more resistance training. Prioritize building muscle mass and increasing bone density.
