Why does the somatotype myth persist in aspie-ville?

The idea of categorizing bodies into one of three groups originated when an American psychologist William Sheldon attempted to find a correlation between somatotype and crime/mental-illness. His work was quickly discredited. Read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somatotyp ... psychology

Yes, some people have naturally thick joints and larger bone structures (mainly due to hormones during puberty) but the vast majority of people "somatotypes" are a result of environment and lifestyle. Take a scrawny guy, make him eat 10,000 calories a day for two years and... wa-la; he's suddenly gone from an ectomorph to a endomorph. Similarly, take a so-called ectomorph or endomorph, putting them on a weightlifting routine, nutritional plan and steroid stack for a few years and they've suddenly turned into mesomorphs. Anyone would have called Flex Wheeler, Dexter Jackson or Kevin Levrone an "ectomorph" before they begun bodybuilding... now they would framemog anyone that stood near them.

Legit, this forum is made of retarded people, so they can't really tell what's true and what's not.

Explain how some of the best strongmen and powerlifter have 10" wrists at 6ft...then there are guys the same height with 6" wrists.

Differences in frame size are legit but the whole ectomorph mesomorph endomorph stuff is bullshit.

:lol: :lol: :lol: 

Frame is just another cope. Studies show bone mass in the body and face have little variation from person to person the biggest difference is in the level of musculature most people have.

Guys with strong jaws have powerful masseter
Guys with broad shoulders have larger deltoids
Guys with big chests have bigger pecs

Thats why all these concentration camp pics show the same body "type" after starvation where muscle mass is cannibalized for fuel. 

Of course anomalies exsist and have more bone but they are the exception not the rule.

Just LOL @ people still coping with "muh frame"
