Body typing

  1. 1. Body Typing (Somatotypes)  Sheldon’s  ‘Atlas of Men’ (1970)  Measurement of  Muscle – size, strength, endurance  Bone - length and girth  Fat – percentage, distribution
  2. 2. Body Type  Endomorphic - centered on the abdomen, and the whole digestive system.  Mesomorphic - focused on the muscles and the circulatory system  Ectomorphic - related to the brain and the nervous system
  3. 3. Sheldon Somatotyping  Each area measured on a 1 – 7 scale  Type is decided by predominant (highest to lowest numbers)  Example –  Endo - 4  Ecto - 7  Meso - 1 A Ectomorph
  4. 4. Triad Body Type
