A redditor named /u/Chicken_Mcfugget has created different body types using his amazing drawing skills! His hobby creating different body types and placing them side by side for comparison. In the pictures he draws it really differentiates the types of body’s people have, especially for bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts.
Everyone is born with different genetics and genetics make up your personality, eyes colour, body type, and much more…
For bodybuilders genetics are an important factor in determining what type of body you can sculpt. Most people know of the three different kinds of body types – Mesomorph, Ectomorph, and Endomorph. Each body type has its advantages and disadvantages.
Mesomorphs are able to build lean muscle and burn fat fairly quick. Endomorphs are able to build muscle very quickly but require more effort when burning body fat. Ectomorphs are lean individuals who struggle to put on muscle mass.
Below is redditor /u/Chicken_Mcfugget‘s drawings he has created depicting his take on genetics and body types.
Narrow vs Wide

This picture depicts the different core insertions based on your genetic make up.
Long bicep/short tricep vs. short bicep/long tricep
This picture shows the difference between a long head bicep muscle and a short head bicep muscle. Shorter bicep heads produce more of a bicep peak. Long bicep heads produce thickness and size.
Sleek vs Chunky
This image depicts the difference between an Ectomorph and an Endomorph.
