Mesomorph Female Body – Destined For Athletic Excellence

by Mindvalley January 30, 2019

Every woman has a unique body, but there are three general categories that each female body falls under: endomorph, mesomorph, or ectomorph.

Based on your genetics, your body type will determine the best way to make your fitness dreams come true.

By adopting a few healthy habits, mesomorph females can meet their health and fitness goals efficiently.

Understanding The Female Somatotonic Body Type


The body classification that took the fitness community by storm was introduced by William Sheldon back in the 1940s.

Sheldon defined three body types and assigned certain personality traits to each of them. According to his theory, your genetic body type doesn’t just determine your physique. It can also influence your behavior and success.

Female mesomorphs naturally have an hourglass shape. With broad shoulders and narrow waists, they gain and lose weight easily – which can prove to be a challenge in and of itself.

When it comes to personality, mesomorphic women are assertive, bold, and adventurous. They love being in charge and are willing to work hard to achieve success.

If this sounds like you, you’re very likely a mesomorph yourself.

So, how do you tap into your full physical potential as a mesomorph female?

Best workout plan for mesomorph women

You have the freedom to operate the way you want, but you must take responsibility for the choices you make and the actions you take.

It’s important to remember that your genes can’t do all the work for you. If you really want to achieve results, you’ll have to hit the gym. But what exercises should a mesomorph female do?

Well, it depends on your goals. If weight loss is what you’re after, cardio is the best road to take.

High-intensity cardio 1-3 times a week paired with low-intensity workouts is the easiest way to take advantage of the fat-burning ability of your mesomorphic body.

On the other hand, if you want well-defined muscles, toning exercises are a perfect choice. For example, planks activate a variety of core muscles. It’s among the most comprehensive of exercises, so it’s worth making it a part of your routine.

Finding The Right Mesomorph Diet


Of course, exercising is only one half of the equation. Maintaining a well-balanced diet is just as important as exercise. 

Consider cutting out processed sugar. Sugar has been proven to have a number of detrimental side effects and can sabotage your health goals.

Protein should make up around 30-40% of your meals, with the other 60-70% coming from healthy carbs and fats, as well as fruits and vegetables. Of course, you can adjust this ratio to your liking, but it’s important that you create a balance.

Avoid processed foods as much as you can and replace them with healthy substitutes. This holds especially true for fats, as consuming the wrong types of fats can set you back.

Mesomorphs have to make fewer sacrifices than the other body types to stay in shape, so you can still enjoy many of your favorite foods while adopting a new diet.

The wrap-up

Being a mesomorph female on a journey towards physical excellence can be very enjoyable. All it takes is a few good lifestyle habits for you to start seeing and feeling a difference.

Remember – balance is key. This goes for exercise, meal plans, and all other positive lifestyle changes you make.

If you can achieve it, you’ll be well on your way to the life you’ve always dreamed of.
