We are all unique.
Yes, even you. Your mom was right!
And you’re here because questions about your body type and genetics:
What body type am I?
How does it affect my training and diet?
I have bad genetics, how screwed am I?
I am a [body type]. Does that mean I shouldn’t do [activity]?
We all have different bodies, genetics,reactions from certain foods, strengths, and weaknesses, and thus we each have different activities and behaviors that we’re predisposed to be good at (or struggle with!).
The standard way of thinking tells us that we have three main “body types”:
(Don’t worry we’ll get into each of those below too.)
HOWEVER, when it comes to your genetic benefits and shortfalls, there is way more to it than just which category your body fits in.
As you’ll soon learn, just because you’re predisposed to be good at one thing or terrible at another doesn’t mean you should be pigeonholed or limited with what you can do.
With a bit of help from our favorite Role Playing Games, we’re going to dig into body types, character classes, and ways to buck the genetic lottery.
Whether or not you know your body type, or you have never heard those terms above before, I got you covered!
