A mesomorph is more suitable for bodybuilding’s competitions (maybe best for it). This type has large bone structure with large muscles. Body looks as naturally athletic. Lot of them have larger shoulders and neck. If you are a mesomorph you can train more often and longer. But be careful not to overdose it, if you are beginner. You gain muscles easier and you won’t get bulky so fast as endomorph. Good way is to train hard with low intense cardio after training (or during the rest day) and healthy diet to stay lean and muscular.
