@samuraijack1985 No one thinks there are 3 types, it is a sliding scale you can be anywhere in between, the fact is however the scale is very wide, there are people who struggle to put on any weight, people who struggle to lose weight etc. I’m sure we all know the people who eat everything but are stick thin and the people who exercise 5x a week but are still overweight. The fact is these people are at the extreme ends of the scale.

whats that song called

roughneckasian October 29, 2011 at 1:18 am

@Notagayusername10 the only thing I see here is a lack of education with leads to an ignorant comment such as yours. Maybe you need to do alot more research on EVERYTHING that ronnie coleman has done to create his body. Last, you might want to see the extensive research that has been done on the science of Somato (Body) Types, you may learn something

Notagayusername10 October 29, 2011 at 1:29 am

this is retarded you can go into any bodytype you are give false info and your a fcking idiot you can change bodytypes via lifting this is a fact you think ronnie was always so jacked imagine if he never would have lifted his genetics cant do all that you are a fucking idiot

LouDCCK October 29, 2011 at 1:34 am

lol im a endomorph?

HauntingPoet October 29, 2011 at 1:45 am

So I am a mesomorph.

Shinkajo October 29, 2011 at 2:00 am

i’m somewhere between a meso and ecto, leaning toward meso,which is a good place to be i think. And i would much rather be a full ecto than a full endo. Also i don’t know about you not changing. With age your metabolism slows down regardless of bodytype, and if you are used to eating shitloads without putting on fat, well it can have a negative inpact.

bilalk85 October 29, 2011 at 2:09 am

i would love some workout soundtracks u would recommend?!?

bilalk85 October 29, 2011 at 2:11 am

can we reach Tuan’s muscular size level without any kind of supplement? i mean he must use some kind of mass gainer thingy?!?

roughneckasian October 29, 2011 at 2:28 am

@samuraijack1985 the video explains that many individuals do score a 3/3/3 or a 4/4/4 and that they would have to look else where to get more information on how they should train and diet. Understanding your somato types doesnt answer all the questions or give u the prefect map on what u need to do. But to say that having some idea what your somato type is a waste of time, I would disagree. Either way, it is always better to be more educated than less even if the information may not help u

samuraijack1985 October 29, 2011 at 2:33 am

Hi Tuan, I’m a fan but I’m surprised to see you buying into somatotyping. Sheldon’s research only classified a minute percentage of people as “pure” ecto, endo, or meso so, even if his theory is valid, practically everyone has characteristics belonging to all three types and therefore cancels itself out by way of not being able to classify anyone exclusively. There are too many variables in metabolic and physical reactions to diet and exercise to pidgeon-hole people into three distinctions.

zebrazebra1990 October 29, 2011 at 3:01 am

great vid but great music too. tuan or someone else can you please tell me what the song is called?

roughneckasian October 29, 2011 at 4:01 am

@khaledxxxxxx some of the tallest professional players in the NFL and NBA start resistance/weight training programs as early as 14 or 15 years of age or freshment year in highschool. Last time I checked, it was pretty rare to be under 6 feet tall to play either sport, even at the shortest position like point guard in the NBA or corner back in the NFL (the only position that is ok to be under 6 feet tall). So the answer is no, bodybuilding or weight lifting does not effect ones hieght

khaledxxxxxx October 29, 2011 at 4:09 am

hey Tuan i don’t wanna sound like a broken record but does bodybuilding affect height (if ur under 21)??

DXrazvan October 29, 2011 at 4:33 am

im ectomorph…

dabul2003 October 29, 2011 at 4:43 am

i dont understand when you told that flipbulance that your sumato type never changes. i used to be much skinnier but now that some years have passed on im stuck in the endmorhic body. it sucks. but i have been able to accept my body now. but if i could change and get slimmer i would love too.

Sillilesshells October 29, 2011 at 4:51 am

weightwatchers…it workss seriously

clarkchiro October 29, 2011 at 5:04 am

@2136cass This happened because you had a leaky gut before you went GF. It’s not a good idea to switch to alternatives right away when going GF Better to avoid all grains for a while.

clarkchiro October 29, 2011 at 5:14 am

@dooners2u Yes, it can be a trigger

2136cass October 29, 2011 at 5:33 am

I must be person #1 to GAIN weight when going GF. I’m VERY allergic to rice and corn. After going GF and dairy free, I ate more rice and corn…substituting rice milk for cow’s milk and corn grits for cream of wheat. After 6 months and a 20 pound weight gain, my GI tract started shutting down. I ended up having multiple bowel obstructions; several hospitalizations later, I was started on IV nutrition. In the end, I did lose a lot of weight because I was vomiting everything including water.

I eliminated gluten from my diet months ago but could not shed any stubborn pounds. I went totally grain, pseudo grain & legume free 2 weeks ago so I hope that helps.

crazedredhead55 October 29, 2011 at 5:54 am

i started a gluten-free, casein-free, low glycemic diet last september. i only eat ‘healthy ‘ fats such as coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, raw almonds and avocados. no red meats. it’s been tough, but the changes in my body have been amazing. in addition to losing 39 lbs (on an insulin pump), i lowered my insulin requirements from 85 units a day to 24. i am staying pretty strict, but am fighting a label of fibromyalgia, and am currently not doing as much exercise i’d like.

pousateris October 29, 2011 at 6:32 am

This is such an amazing, straightforward video, thank you very much! I don’t think people realize how much gluten affects them negatively. Bloating, discomfort, dull skin, all of those symptoms are reversed!

MsKarenrankin October 29, 2011 at 7:11 am

in three weeks of going GF I felt like I lost weight, the swelling in my body went away. The best part is most of my cellulite disappeared from my legs. Not Kidding.
And happy you feel happy.

acoow October 29, 2011 at 7:17 am

Eating Gluten free is healthy only if you do so be selecting gluten free foods without buying foods that are labeled gluten free.

dvorakfan1 October 29, 2011 at 7:54 am

do you have any statistics on non-caucasians? Are there any other populations which have problems with gluten?

imeldificris October 29, 2011 at 7:58 am

wow i should try this!

dooners2u October 29, 2011 at 8:42 am

I have lupus and feel that gluten is probably a trigger. What do you think? I have a cousin with Lupus too.

jerseygrl5 October 29, 2011 at 9:31 am

Yep, I lost 40 pounds after going gluten free and feel better than I have in years.

clarkchiro October 29, 2011 at 9:43 am

No, rice does not contain the gluten I’m referring to in the video.

onepcwhiz October 29, 2011 at 9:45 am

Does rice have gluten?
