What are the examples of body composition?

There are three major body types - ectomorphs, endomorphs and mesomorphs. Ectomorphs - have minimal muscle and minimal fat. An example would be a marathon runner. Endomorphs - have lots of fat. They have a pear shaped body. An example would be a sumo wrestler. Mesomorphs - have lots of muscle and have a 'V' shaped body. A prime example would be a gymnast.

What kind of sports can a ectomorph do?

Ectomorphs can do any sport!! You body shape does not have as much impact on which sport you can play as much ability. Yes ectomorphs may not be come O line men or body builders but what they lack in size and power they make up with speed and endurance. So look at sports highlight you natural abilities but in saying that Wayne Gretzky is a Ectomorph and is consider the best hockey player to ever play the game. Also with repettion and hard work you can build muscle or change you body type a little. Many players of contact sports are either Ectomorphs or Endomorphs and either gain or lose weight to look more like the Mesomorph. Once they stop playing the sport they then revert to their natural body type.

Does running or jogging make your legs bigger?

Well there could be several causes to bigger legs. 1. There are three distinct body types- Endomorph, Mesomorph and Ectomorph. Endomorphs are bigger boned and gain body fat easily. They gain muscle normally. Mesomorphs are medium-large boned and gain muscle very easily, both men and women. The weight gain you are experiencing is likely muscle gain. Ectomorphs are USUALLY very thin (although there ARE overweight ectos like myself) and have trouble building muscle. You could be a endo, meso or both. 2. Your diet. Do you eat a lot of meat/chicken/fish? Those foods have a lot of protein in them that builds muscles as well. If you eat primarily vegetables and do the same exercise, you won't build muscles NEARLY as easily. With no meat protein, muscle is near impossible to build up. Your body will use the fat you already have to try to maintain the muscle it is trying to build.
