Thanks to great genetics, I have been blessed as a true mesomorph. The advantage to having mesomorphic qualities is having a great foundation on which to build. The combination of gaining muscle and losing fat fairly quickly allows the mesomorph to achieve fantastic definition of the body. However, a disadvantage is as easily as we lose fat, we can gain fat also… especially as we age. Just because I can make it look easy doesn’t mean that I have it easy. I still have to work to keep up a great physique.
- Focus on weight loss to shrink the waistline and bring out the true mesomorph hourglass figure
- Incorporate a consistent cardio workout to shed bodyfat
- In resistance training, focus on more repetitions and less weight to slenderize and contour our already muscular figure
As a naturally muscular woman, one problem I face is a lack of direction in my workouts. My body plateaus quickly so I have to constantly change up my routine. And I have to visualize what I want my body to look like and work with that vision in mind. Because I’ve been working out consistently for a few years, I’m so in tune with my body that I train with a mind-muscle connection rather than keep up with my sets and reps. And when I’m on my “A” game, it's fairly simple to maintain my fitness. However, when I let life "get in the way" and lose focus, I tend to lose motivation and assume that I can slide by with very little effort. However, my bad habits can catch up with me in the end if I don’t nip them in the bud quick!
Stay tuned for more on how to fine tune the mesomorph frame and how to overcome the meso-endomorph syndrome or as I like to call it, “fat buff”. And soon I will be chronicling my “Meso-morphosis” as I work on shedding 8 lbs of excess bodyfat that I’ve gained this past year.
